A new, healthy lifestyle is only one step away!
Jan 1 signifies the start of the year, remade resolutions, and the best intentions of making new habits not to be broken again, again. No matter how well the diet and new healthy lifestyle went those first 10 days, last year’s resolution dump day may have found you on Jan 15th. Will you stand resolute this year or give in to well intentioned, but poorly executed ideas? The best way to stop breaking those resolutions is to create solutions and a road map to success.
Stating a goal and painting a pretty picture of the future is great if you are running for office or pitching a movie project, but those things are completely useless when trying to create a better life for yourself when reality hits. A well-intentioned person may live in that stated dream for a moment, but then fall back into their normal life. The resolute person will create a new life, step by step every day, living a new reality every moment. This is where dreamers and goal setters differ in life and in business, though they both need each other.
Dreamers can show goal setters a better place or way to live, and goal setters and show the dreamers how to get there. The one thing that will make a person successful in each endeavor is their level of intention and resolve. Make sure your picture is clear, your path is laid out, and you are fully resolute.
The best way to get from A to Z is to make sure you don’t stop before you make it to B. The great thing about big life changing goals is that they are grand and incredible and impossible – and that is also the problem with them.
To conquer a mountain, a large goal, or a totally life altering habit you must start small and then work your way up. When it comes to improving your health and creating solutions, start with the smallest easiest things to solve and master them first.
Find something basic like drinking more water and start having an extra glass every evening and every morning. Once that becomes habit then add on some thing else. These small basic habits will form a solid foundation for you to grow from and fall back on if you fail with a larger challenge. As the basic healthy habits add up, your health will improve and larger challenges will be realistic, fun, and even more life changing.
Set your intentions, make your plans, and stay resolute in all you do for the best rest of your life.
- Find the three biggest health problems you need to solve and create a realistic solution for each one.
- Create a road map to success for each solution. Start moving down the shortest, easiest road so you can get that first taste of healthy success.
- Create solutions for your next 3 health problems or create a health challenge for yourself to conquer the next year. This insures you will always keep moving forward.
