What if you could achieve that persistant, resistant and elusive goal?
How can you make New Year's Resolutions work for you? They don't have to be a bad thing. Read on and learn a simple tip that will help you achieve!
This is from my phone so it will be brief, but I really wanted to share some of my enthusiasm for the new year and the power of fresh starts!
Many people hate New Year’s Resolutions! Why is that? I think that most of us feel like tot losers if we fail, so we play it safe and don’t even attempt the challenge. If we do set some goals, we rarely dare risk sharing our audacious attempt with others because then failure only means greater feelings of discouragement and embarrassment!
I’m here to tell you that any progress towards your goal is an achievement! Give yourself a break and focus on doing your best! If you fall short or fall down, just “Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again!” (from the Fred & Ginger movie, “Swingtime”)
Personally, I have chosen to risk embarrassment and humiliation in the name harnessing positive peer pressure by telling everyone that 2012 is the year of the 6-pack! I told the world I’d do it in 2010 and you could say I failed. For me, it was a huge success because I lost my gut and got down to 168 lbs! Now I’m going for it again and I’ve announced it on Facebook and share it often in my day to day travels.
How serious are you about getting fit or whatever your goal is? Do you have any health concerns like I do? Why not invite your friends and family to support you?

Call it whatever you want! Tell whomever you want. But DO set a goal or two and DO tell your circle of supporters to enlist their help!!!
Would like to chat more about you can achieve those persistent and resistant goals that you have been working on for several months or several years with little or no progress?
