Over the past few weeks, I’ve had people who have come to me looking for help with weight loss and or to begin eating healthier. And one of the major pieces of advice that I share is that in order to reach success with your goals, one thing will have to happen. You will have to be committed to your goals. If you say, “I want to lose 20 pounds by the end of the summer,” you will have to be 100% committed to that. That will mean, not making excuses and begin to put the plans in motion to making it happen.
For example, you will need to choose a fitness program or regimen and schedule it into your day as if it were a non-negotiable meeting. You will need to commit to eating healthy and eating clean, meaning skipping the junk food, the sodas, the sugary foods and snacks, and drinking more water. It will mean that you will have to make sacrifices and do and eat things that you may not want to, but you will do it because you are committed to your goals. That is the #1 reason why people fail at reaching their fitness and health goals, because they simply were not 100% committed to their goal. The next time you set a goal, ask yourself:
- “Am I truly committed to this?”
- “Am I willing to do whatever it takes to reach this goal?”
- “Am I willing to remove obstacles, distractions, and other things that can sabotage my success from my life, while pursuing this goal?”
Once you make the commitment to pursue a goal, remember that it will require you to be consistent in your pursuit. That means making the choice to do this every single day, not just sometimes or when you feel like it, but EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
Make today a new day to re-commit yourself to living a healthier lifestyle and to pursue your goals with commitment and consistency.
