Do not make losing weight your new years resolution!

It’s that time of year again, are you thinking of what would be some appropriate new years resolutions? Do you ever wonder why most people are not successful at achieving their goals? It’s because we tend to choose the wrong goals. Goals are good to have; they can keep you focused on what you are working towards. However goals
are worthless if they are not based on your core desires. The reason most goals are never fulfilled is exactly that; they were not based on a core desire. In order to successfully fulfill a goal you must have a burning desire to do so. It has to be tied to something that you are passionate about, not to something you are told to do or think you have to do.
Goals must also be stated correctly.

An example is having a goal to lose weight. That is a goal almost certain to fail. No one really wants to lose weight, it has no real meaning and certainly isn’t anyone’s passion. The real desire may be to be able to enjoy playing sports well again or to look good in a bikini or to have more energy so you can enjoy your family more. Your goal should be; to enjoy playing soccer to the best of your ability or to become healthier so you can live longer to enjoy your family. Losing weight is just one of the things you need to do to achieve your true goals.

The key is to become clear on the things that are truly important in your life. Then make a list of what you want to improve upon, your goals, and devise a strategy for achieving them. If you need help with this, I suggest you read my book Real Clear Real Fast. You can find it at
