Tip of the week: Setting yourself up for success

Someone recently told me that in order to truly reach your goals you have to look back at the times you didn’t achieve your goals and ask yourself, “What wasn’t I willing to do in order to succeed?” I had the goal of losing 5 pounds this month. I’m not going to lie, I did not achieve this goal. In fact, I may have gained some. Looking back, I know I didn’t make it because I wasn’t willing to devote the time it took to work out and plan for healthier meals. I could feel bad for myself and call myself all kinds of names – lazy, stupid, loser, etc… or I could make a plan. If I really want to succeed I have to be aware that it’s not going to happen simply because I want it to.

As they say, no one ever plans to fail, but they do fail to plan.
