2017 Was A Failure

As 2017 comes to a close, where do you stand with you stand with the resolutions you made in January?

Have you made progress or did your motivation sizzle out?

Most people wait around for motivation to strike them like a lightning bolt. Well, I’ve got news: motivation isn’t something that happens to you – it’s something that you create for yourself. Over and over and over again each day.

If you don’t feel motivated to achieve the goals you wrote down 8 months ago, it’s likely due to mental roadblocks that hold you hostage. The last thing I want you to be saying right now is that 2017 was a failure for you. You still have a chance to turn it all around.

Here’s a few bullet-points I jotted down this morning. Does anything ring true to you? Maybe one, or many of these thoughts apply to you. One thing is certain though- if you can even pick one to focus on and CRUSH each month for the rest of the year, you have a chance at turning 2017 around and making sure that you turn this year into a WIN.

  • Success comes first in the mind, so learn how to practice visualizing yourself accomplishing your goals.
  • Remember, you are the only person who can hold you back.
  • Forgive yourself and love yourself despite past failures. Write down what’s holding you down and say out loud, I forgive myself.” Do that each day first thing in the morning until you actually believe it.
  • Decide what is important in your life, and focus on that. Make a list of the top 3 things that will lead you to success and then go to work.
  • Conquer each negative thought the moment it enters your mind, when it is weakest. If you’re like most people, you follow the negative thought deeper and deeper as you imagine the worst outcome. Instead, immediately imagine how everything will miraculously be better. Imagine the best possible outcome.
  • Give up the idea that things won’t go right unless you worry about them. Understand loud and clear- worrying changes nothing.
  • If you bring the body of your dreams to the point of resolve, then you’ll soon be living in it.
  • Look towards your future, if you believe the best is yet to come then it will be.
  • You become what you think about most.
  • The margin between success and failure is very small and easily bridged by determination.
  • Start your day by accomplishing your hardest or most important task first.
  • Set small, long term attainable goals, rather than one monumental goal. Remember, adding 2.5 pounds to your deadlift each week will add up to a 130 pound increase in one year.
  • Convince yourself that exercise is fun, and it will be.
  • Know the reason Why you want what you want very clearly.
  • Create a motivating play list of songs to use as the sound track to your workout sessions.
  • Every decision you make leads you either closer toward achieving your goal, or farther from it.
  • If you think you’re a fat person, then you’ll stay fat. Stop identifying yourself with being overweight.
  • If you think you’re fit, then you soon will be. Action alleviates anxiety.
  • Once you’ve set your goal, your attitude either pushes you toward accomplishment or failure.
  • If you don’t know exactly where you want to go, you will likely end up someplace else.
  • You can have the body of your dreams, but first you must give up the belief that you can’t.
  • You can only have two things in life: excuses or results.
