The top educators in the world list "Setting High Expectations" as a priority step to reaching great achievements: a belief that WONDERFUL THINGS ARE going to happen to you! From your first hot air balloon ride, to switching careers, to changing your health habits: aim high to reach high in your life. Once you set a high expectation, plan 1. Resources, 2. Timed Steps, and 3. Support to move from belief to reality.
Here we are again at the beginning of a New Year. What will you do to make this year count? I challenge you to join us at Personal Best “whole life warehouse” and commit to a holistic approach towards your health and wellness.
Are you making the same resolution year after year? How do you break that cycle and make it actually happen this time? Everyone’s heard the stats and probably experienced it themselves—New Year’s Resolutions are made with such conviction but so often abandoned within a few months. January is the big month for gym membership booms and by March there is no line for the treadmill anymore.
We've all done it - set goals for the New Year, and then we don't follow through. It leaves us feeling defeated and depressed. Why not start your year out with goals that you will actually attain? How do you do that? It is very simple if you take the time to think it through. I once read an article from IDEA about setting SMART goals. The acronym SMART will help you make sure you are setting goals that you will actually meet.
The beginning of the year so many people decide to make a change. They make a New Years Resolution. But then sometime is February or March, many find that their resolve has started to fade. I'm not going to lie. Change is hard. It doesn't matter if you are adding exercise, removing sugar or eating more vegetables. Change is hard.
So, first... Why did you make that Resolution in the first place? Are you going on a trip, getting married or wanting to play with those kids or Grandkids?
