Wow, here we are at the end of February.  It's almost time to turn the page again.

 

How are you doing on your goals? 

 

Are you finding it harder and harder to keep those original commitments that seemed so easy to do in January?

 

It's interesting because you're not the only one.  Every year right around the second week of January there is a HUGE increase in activity at the gym.  I mean a serious increase in new members committing to making a change -- whether it's the typical lose a few unwanted pounds, or those looking to get out of pain.

 

But guess what?

 

If you're like most people, right about now is when they begin to abandon their commitments and begin to lose traction.  Simply put, they start to give up or make excuses. And right now I am noticing a HUGE decrease in those new members that started out with such energy and commitment.

 

Let's be honest, it's WAY TOO EARLY to throw in the towel. 

 

You started with good intentions, you made some solid efforts. But for some reason are still not seeing the progress you would like, and quite honestly -- deserve.  Not seeing results has a lot to do with how you set up and go after your goals. 

 

To be blunt about it, it's the difference between success or giving up.

 

I figured if you were like some of my clients, you could use a little pick me up and perspective overhaul.

 

Well here is a little piece I came across that I thought was right on target.  It's written for big business, but when I read it through and listened to some of my clients, I realized it was right on target for all of us. 

 

Check it out and let me know what you think.

You've got to think of this way.  If you were traveling to work or taking any journey and for some reason a certain freeway or street was blocked, you would just make an adjustment in your plan and continue forward. You wouldn't just quit. Your goals were worth making and they are worth following through!
