Recently, a Facebook fan named Julie commented that she was waiting to buy the “Healthy. Strong. Happy” necklace I posted to celebrate meeting her goal and it got me thinking.
What there aren’t, however, are companies that are offering specific ways to make that celebration a little bit easier on your pocketbook.
So that’s what I’m setting out to do with a one-time use 30% discount off your favorite item in the shop.
Don’t Just Set A Goal, Set A BHAG
After the success of Jim Collins’ book, “Built To Last,” the business world adopted the idea of setting a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (aka BHAG) and I’m going to carry it over into the fitness world.
I know that each of you has a BHAG (whether or not you’ve said it out loud to anyone). It could be something as straightforward as choosing healthier eating options 80% of the time, running your first half marathon, or working out at least 3 days a week.
It may also be something less quantifiable – changing your lifestyle so that you have more energy to play with your kids, improving how you manage your time so you can do more knitting or reading or…you name it.
How To Earn The 30% Discount
Since each of us leads such different lives, what is big, hairy, and audacious to one may not be to another so the only requirements to receive this discount are as follows:
1. Set a goal that feels just that little bit overwhelming or hard to reach, but you know that, with the right focus, can be met.
2. On a piece of paper, write down the goal and the reason why it’s important to you and put it someplace that you can pull it out when you need a reminder of why you’re pushing yourself.
3. Comment on this blog post that you’ve set your BHAG. If you feel comfortable sharing the BHAG that you’ve set, I’d love to hear it! Otherwise, you need only comment here to qualify.
4. This whole offer is on the honor system so when you’ve met your BHAG, send an email to info [at] wordstosweatby dot com letting me know that you’ve met your goal and the item that you’d like to purchase and I will send you a one-time use personalized coupon code.
So, stop over thinking the goal that’s been nagging at you and put your BHAG on notice! After all, 30% off your favorite Words to Sweat by product is waiting.
