What are your resolutions for the new year? Most common resolutions year after year are:
Make more money, lose weight/get in shape, stop smoking, travel more, etc, etc. Today I wanna focus on losing weight/getting in shape. But you can easily apply these simple rules to achieve any goal, anytime. So keep reading if ya wanna reach some goal or goals.
As the New Year has crept up on us again, we find ourselves doing a couple things:
reflecting on this past year
setting resolutions for the next year
If you wanna make next year the best year ever, there are a few simple, but important steps you can take to ensure your success…
First of all, get a pen and paper,cuz you’re gonna be writing some stuff down (I’ll wait…). We’re gonna start by looking over the past year. What were your goals? Did you achieve them? Why or why not? What actions did you take to achieve them? If you didn’t achieve them, what stopped you? These are all very important questions, so take a few minutes to sit and write down the answers to the questions above. If you failed to reach goals/resolutions you set for yourself, you’ll probably find a common answer: you tried, it was hard, you quit. Chances are, you either didn’t really care that much about the goal in the first place, or you just didn’t have a proper action plan in place to achieve your goals. We’ll talk more about this later…
Now it’s time to look forward and decide what you would really like to accomplish over this next year. I am going to share a couple simple rules with you to help ensure your success with this.
Make and write down goals that you wanna achieve for you! Not someone else! Otherwise your effort will be half-assed at best…
Be specific about your goals! (for example: “lose weight” is not specific. Whereas “lose 20lbs in the next 6 weeks” is very specific)
Write down each of your goals and why they are important to you (how will it impact your life if you do or do not achieve them. “How will you feel when you’re 20lbs lighter, wearing those skinny clothes”?).
Be passionate about your goals (not all goals are easy to achieve. Otherwise you would have already done it!).
Create an action plan to achieve each goal.
Create a realistic timeline with check-points for each step in your action plan.
Now go do it! The best plan in the world is useless until it is executed!
An there you have it… 7 simple steps to making next year your best year ever! If you are stuck on your action plan for losing weight and getting in shape, I’m the guy ya wanna talk to I have an action plan designed specifically to help you lose between 13-28lbs in the next 6 weeks!
