Many of us have struggled to stay on track with our health goals and the resolutions (New Years or whenever) we have set for ourselves. We get distracted and busy, feeding the self-talk that sabotages the person we strive to be. For many, this has been a lifelong habit of finding a way not to versus finding a way to be successful with our goals. It does not make you a bad person or a failure. It makes you human and the more you practice developing the mindset for success in your goals the better you will get at it. It will take work, determination, and your resiliency. Today I share how to begin the day to help you stay on track with your goals.
Begin The Day Focused
The way you begin each day will help you to stay on track for the whole day. Begin the day with enough time to CALMLY read materials that will help you in the goal you are seeking. Read things that challenge you to grow, make healthy choices, and help you to focus. The material should challenge you to look at the way you process life, your belief systems that lead to less healthy choices, and give you hope that change is possible. Being healthy is more than just exercise and nutrition. We affect our physical health with emotions, thoughts, the way we communicate with ourselves and others, and belief systems. The material should help you to improve your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. It could be anything from exercise and health books to personal growth.
- Fitness books and magazines
- Nutrition books and magazines
- Self-improvement books, CD’s, and DVD’s
- Religious and spiritual materials
- Articles of people overcoming insurmountable odds to reach a great goal
Work on the areas where you believe that you need the most growth. Please allow yourself 10-20 minutes per day to read and learn. This could include the material you are doing right now. Utilize AT LEAST two of these sessions per week to find someone who has overcome many of the obstacles you face. I hope you have a great week of health, happiness, and fulfillment. BE YOUR OWN MIRACLE!
