Achieving goals after experiencing a brain injury can seem overwhelming. Seem overwhelming especially when we look at the mountains that seem to be in the way of achieving those goals.
As we look at the mountain, we may begin to experience some anxiety that is followed by depression. We may feel overwhelmed by the mountain. We may allow the size of the mountain to discourage our focus. We may find ourselves stuck in a place of fear.
We may say to ourselves, “The mountain is just too big, so what is the point of ever trying to reach the goal?”
Well, I have good news for you. You don’t have to move or deal with the mountain all at once.
Say you have a goal to clean your whole house or apartment. Breathe! You don’t have to clean the whole house in one day. By managing the goal of cleaning your house you can decide to clean one of the rooms today. Once you have cleaned that room, you can celebrate the progress you have made toward the goal of cleaning the entire house. Tomorrow you can clean another room of your house or apartment.
Through making the achievement of our goals manageable, we can experience a sense of satisfaction from the gains that we make, today.
Remember you don’t have to reach achieve your goal, today.
You may have some thing very personal that you would like to achieve.
My encouragement to you would be to manage the achievement of your goal (s).
Set down with a piece of paper and pencil and write out what you would like to achieve.
Through writing the goal down, you will be able to own what you want to achieve, a little at a time.
When you make the goal personal you can relax because you no longer have to live up to anyone’s expectation.
