Many moons ago as a Weight Watcher client, my group leader suggested an anchor to help us in our weight loss journey.
The anchor would serve as a visual reminder of your progress and your goal.
Whenever you felt like going astray…let’s say eat half a cheesecake, your anchor could serve as your reminder of how far you’ve come and to continue on your path.
I believe in these anchors or visual reminders to help keep you focused.
I’ve had several over the years.
One was a silver apple core charm that I wore on a charm bracelet and a necklace. Apple cores even serve as the screen saver on my laptop.
They reminded me to live from my core…the me God created me to be.
When I found myself outside my comfort zone, I would hold my apple core and remind myself of the strength and power that lied within me.
Instead of sneaking out early from a networking meeting, I turned around and marched myself up to the organization’s president, introduced myself and asked him who I needed to know in the room since I was new. In that moment I was living from my core. I moved from fear to my place of power.
What’s your anchor? What tangible reminder do you have to keep you focused?
Need an anchor? Visit the This Woman Knows Core Store and pick up your own apple core and This Woman Knows/Living From My Core cuff bracelet. You can purchase yours here.
Stay focused. Stay anchored. Stay connected.
