Wow, it seems like 2018 has flown by. For me, there were plenty of ups and downs, but overall this was a great year. The biggest highlight for my family and me was the birth of my son. He has brought joy and a new sense of motivation, and my life has a new purpose.
I'm sure like me, 2018 had its highs and lows for everybody. Some of you took leaps of faith and began a new business venture, while some of you finally reached that goal you set the year before. However, some of you may have lost jobs, or gained weight and still trying to figure out how and where did it come from. LOL! Regardless of what happened in the current year, we always seem to feel that the New Year is OUR year. For some strange reason we believe that once that ball drops and the new year is here, we are going to become someone different miraculously. Speaking from experience, I am the first to tell you that is not the case.
Around this time of year, everyone is hosting vision board parties and goal setting meetings expecting to motivate people to make the new year better than the last. Temporarily those people are fired up, and some stick to their goals, but the majority eventually revert to their old ways. The same goes for health and fitness goals. Every New Year people set goals to begin this new journey to get healthier. Gyms are packed with new members, and fitness trainers are booming with new clients. It's the rush of the "New Year, New Me" people; you know who you are. These are the people that start a new fitness program or get a gym membership, use it may be the first month and shortly after revert back to their old unhealthy habits. If this is you, continue reading. I have a few tips that will help you become a New You this New Year.
The time is now to create new habits and accomplish new goals. Success is solely based on mindset. If you are mentally prepared to succeed, then there is nothing that can stand in the way of you succeeding. This leads to my first tip, commitment.
Its hard for the average person begin a fitness journey and stick to it. The reasoning is because you have no real goal or nothing that you are working toward, so there is nothing to motivate you. Set a concrete goal or sign up for an event and go hard preparing for it. On those days you feel like you want to quit or give up, remember what you are working toward and go for it.
Often people are intimidated to workout with people who are in better shape than them, but your mindset should be the complete opposite. They always say if you want to be a millionaire, you should hang with millionaires. The same goes when you are improving your health. You should be involved with healthier people, people who are going to hold you accountable and lead by example. Join a Facebook group, a group of friends at the gym, or consistently attend a workout class. Whichever you decide make sure you are held accountable during your journey.
Procrastination is often our worse enemy. I will be the first to admit, I use to procrastinate, but I read a quote that changed my perception. The quote read "If you do it and don't do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over." That spoke volumes and made so much sense. My last advice to you is to do it and get done. Don't put off until tomorrow what can be done today.
