Reasons Why You Can’t Stick to Anything

With Danielle Washington,

Have you ever wondered, why you can’t stick to anything like a routine, diet, or self-care goals? In the beginning, it’s easy because you’re all in and excited. But then you miss a few days and eventually feel defeated and you give up.

For example, you decide that you’re going to implement a morning routine. You’re consistently achieving your goals that the first week, but then you’re running late Monday morning the following week then you skip it. That Wednesday, you wake up and just don’t feel like doing your morning routine, and you skip it again. This pattern continues until you decide it is pointless to continue and you abandon your morning routine. There are a few reasons why you may be struggling to stick to anything.  

You’re probably making one or more of these 8 common mistakes people make when trying to consistently stick to something. In this episode learn what is blocking you, how to stop falling off the wagon to consistently stick to something that matters to you.
