Plateaus happen to everyone—no matter how hard one is working toward a goal. After all, what’s a “goal” if there wasn’t a challenge involved? While the obstacles preventing you from achieving a health, personal or financial goal can sometimes be overcome through strategic problem-solving, the plateau is a beast of an entirely different nature. A plateau, simply put, is when we find ourselves making progress and suddenly stop—we do not get any closer to our goal (it seems), but we are not slipping back either.
The problem with plateaus is that many people can interpret this stand-still as a point of failure; it may cause many to give up on chasing their dreams. I have found time and time again that with the proper coaching, positive thinking and stress management strategies, individuals can turn their plateau around into an uplifting situation.
Whether you are not getting that raise you’ve been working hard for or have stopped losing weight in a new fitness-diet regime—I have great news: you can push through the plateau. Here are a few tips to help you get there:
- Have You Really Hit A Plateau?
One of the most common issues in reaching for a goal is feeling that a plateau is there but it actually isn’t. Simply put, we become used to the pace of progress that we are making.
For instance, an individual who is working toward a weight loss target may feel that while the scale isn’t shedding any numbers, that they are still burning fat; the fat is just turning into muscle. Others who are saving up money may feel that putting small deposits in their accounts is not getting them any closer to a financial objective; however, in truth, they are just getting used to the commitments they have established to achieve said goal.
Before you say you have hit a plateau or a dead end, double check with yourself and look at your progress from a different angle. You may discover that you haven’t plateaued, but have just become more comfortable in working your way toward a goal.
In fitness for instance, you may find that increasing your level of workout difficulty is a way to feel like you are doing more. Others may find that adding more time to a workout is a great way to get over dead-end blues. If you’re working toward a financial goal, consider ways you can cut back on spending or contribute more toward your objective. If you are looking for a career change, start considering different options or put more passion into your work on a daily basis. If you notice yourself making the extra effort in any goal plan, you will feel that plateau starting to push forward.
Weight loss plateaus can be some of the most challenging, as they usually correspond to a strategic plan that can get boring. If you have been following the same diet or same workout routine, consider ways you can spice it up and introduce something new to your plan.
Making a change to your goal plan does not have to be unhealthy; it could just mean making your progress more interesting. If you’re searching for a diverse array of diet products that can make your weight loss journey more interesting, Isagenix has a vast selection of healthy items and a great deal of tips to help you out.
- Put Your Progress to Work
Many individuals will feel as though they have not achieved anything until they have reached the finish line. However, it is important to recognize any progress on your way to achieving a goal. For instance, if you have lost some weight on your journey to reach a target size, try rocking a new bathing suit or outfit that will accentuate your progress. Not only will this help you visualize your achievement, but also help keep you motivated to achieve more.
Another way to put your progress to work is to pass it on. Finding ways to support others who are also striving for similar goals can also help break up plateaus. Reaching out and offering advice are great ways to not only help others meet their objectives, but also reveal to yourself that you know what you are doing—and doing it well.
