Getting on Track

Getting on Track

We all do really good and get a lot accomplished for days at a time and then you realize that all of the responsibilities that you have and the time schedules you have drag you down until you feel like you are not on the right track.

When you fail, the small things do not make us a failure.  The most successful people in the whole world make mistakes and they slip u and they fail sometimes.

There will always be things that cause you not to be able to follow your regular routine and make it impossible to get things done.

Here are some strategies that can help you to get back into the swing of things:


Try to learn to schedule things.  Put things on your calendar and then you will be back on track with them.

If you want to start back working out, make sure that you leave a spot open for it to happen Monday through Friday.

Change the way that you are doing life.  Find a way to fit things into your time frame.  Make sure you do things in a specific order so you will remember them.  Fold your clothes, take your shower, brush your teeth and then repeat the next day.

If you want to be happier, tell yourself something good each day and something that you are thankful for.  Change your habit of taking the blame and being upset at yourself when you mess up.

Small Things

Even when you are doing something small, stick to your schedule.  You will never get on track if you let the small things slip through the cracks.

Stick to your schedule and take time even if you don’t have the full amount of time to do things.  Do a little bit of it.  Take individual steps in the right direction to fit in things that you want to do in your life.

Expect Something

Do things that will cause you to expect something.  Meet up with coaches and teachers and let them expect you to be there.

The good news is that you don’t even have to be on the team to do this.  Talk to people wherever you go and meet new friends.  Seeing familiar faces will make you want to show up.


Take time to focus on things you have.  Stop focusing on what you don’t have.  Focus on your goals and try to reach them.

If you want to start a business but you don’t have the money, focus on what you have to work with and go small.  The truth is that everyone cannot start in the same place.  Life is not easy and not everyone has a lot of money and resources.

It isn’t easy but you will be happy if you are a little bit uncomfortable, but you are still making progress.  Change your focus from what you don’t have to what you have and then you can stop circumstances from getting in your way.  You might progress along slowly, but you will still progress.


It is easy to get hung up with things and feel that they are not good enough to do.  For example, if you are trying to work out each day and you do not fit it in the whole week, don’t give up.

Just try to be healthier on the next day and doing workouts 3 days is better than not doing any.

Just because you didn’t stick to the right schedule doesn’t mean you should quit.  Let yourself make good choices and pick up good habits.  Start living life better and progress what you are doing.

When you master the basics of life then you will have more chances of doing what you want to do.  Changing your strategies will make a difference and will bring you results.

Environmental Success

Try to put yourself in places that brings you environmental success.  If you aren’t doing successful things and you are in a place where you feel like you are being held back, find a different place to go.

Go somewhere that makes you feel like you can be successful.  Acknowledge that you are important and surround yourself with people that make you feel that way.

Know that your behaviors are impacting who you are and that your environment can trigger different actions.  If you want to start doing something all the time, make a change and focus on doing it.

When you make a small environmental change, you can start a new habit and this habit can motivate you and give you a willpower to continue to do more.


This sounds very easy but when you are trying to stick to a certain habit that is important to you, forgetting your habit can be a sign that it is not really that important to you.  Sometimes that isn’t the truth, while other times it can be a sign.

It is funny how much time people will spend doing things they don’t really care about doing.  When they don’t reach their goal, they will feel like a failure and be upset that they didn’t achieve it.

You only have so much energy to put in your life and you will find a way to do it if it is important to you.

Getting Back on Track

Changing is always so hard but when you take time to change, you can see that you will move forward.

When you go backwards, anticipate those steps and know that they are only making you stronger.  Make a plan to get back on track as soon as you can.
