I will bet that we can agree on 2020 being a year of eventful change, and it looks like 2021 is going to be just as eventful. Hopefully you are looking to make 2021 your best year yet as far as health and fitness. I wanted to help you with three key things to keep in mind for your success.
1- Get Clear On Your Goals: In order to achieve something, you have to identify exactly what it is. “Being healthier” is not a goal. “Toning up” is not a goal. The goal needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, and realistic and have a deadline. Such as; I will lose 10 pounds by February 28. That is specific.
I’ll also show you how to recalibrate your mindset to make success more likely by taking some time to visualize and experience what achieving that goal will look and feel like. Visualization is a huge boost. Athletes use it, top business people use it. You too can use it to your advantage.
2- Identify The Action Plan: A goal without a plan is just a wish. I’ll help you identify the small action steps that, over time, will help you achieve your goal. And yes, I said small action steps for a reason. When setting your goal, think big. When taking action, think small.
This way you have an opportunity to celebrate the small wins. This creates positive momentum for your mentally and emotionally.
3- Improve Your Mindset. This is perhaps the most important aspect of long-term success with your health and with every aspect of your life.
This is a really big topic with lots of things that you can implement. For now I’m going to suggest that you be aware of the negative voice in your head. When you hear yourself saying negative and discouraging things, stop it, acknowledge that you said it, then reframe it to something positive and forward moving.
As an example, one of my clients recently made the comment “my arms are so weak”. I asked “compared to what? ” She said to her legs. Well, that’s an apples and oranges comparison and I pointed out that she just worked a bunch of arm sets and still cranked out a finishing set of push-ups on her toes. And that feat is not weak. So I asked her to reconsider her comment for herself. She came back with my arms may not be as strong as my legs today, but they sure were strong for the workout today. Much more supportive and motivating. Well done.
You see, it doesn’t have to be complicated. First, decide what you want to accomplish, second, identify the actions that you need to take to get here and third, reframe your mindset.
