2012 is History and 2013 is about to arrive.
If you have given up on New Year's resolutions, this one is for you. If you have developed a negative attitude towards New Year's resolutions this one is for you too. Whether this is a result of your own failure to stick with the program or whether it is out of annoyance for the increased traffic of new year's resolution's at the gym who only last till February and you are tired of watching all of them slack off as soon as life happens this one is for you.
I want to talk about sustainable effort, whether it be nutritional or fitness related, our intentions alone do not make us succeed. If that were true then we would not need new year's resolutions at all. It is the very fact that we fail and deep down in our hearts want to "give it another try" that we deem the first day of a brand new year that chance to start again. There is nothing wrong with that, but what can we do to ensure the best chance of success this year?
5 Tips for the NEW YEAR
- Choose something that you NEED, not WANT.
- Choose sustainable goals, realistic ones will make it past the initial motivation into the habitual stage.
- Don't underestimate the power of HABIT.
- Pick yourself us, dust yourself off and start again
- Be ACCOUNTABLE to someone.
ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR 2013, May your choices, one by one, bring you closer to being good to yourself, loving others better and fulfilling your dreams.
