New Years Revolution!

This may not sit well with you, but it’s something that you need to know, and so I’m just
going to come out and say it.


See, the way I see it they’re insulting your intelligence.

Who are “they”?

covers-0437THEY are the talking heads you see on TV and hear on the radio. And I’m convinced
they’re trying to make you fatter.

Every year at about this time all you see, hear and read about are people making the big
three New Year resolutions – more money, quit smoking, and losing weight.

Now, I don’t know the success rate of the first two, but as a fitness expert and someone
who has helped dozens and dozens of folks lose weight and get in better shape, I can tell
you (and statistics prove) that most people who resolve to lose weight in the New Year
are doomed.

In fact, an article I just read on CNN.com said that most people who have a New Year
resolution to lose weight will fail.

In the same article, clinical psychologist Mark Crawford of Roswell, stop-self-sabotage-subliminalGeorgia said that one
reason people fail is because they sabotage themselves.

I believe this to be true.

I’ve seen it myself.

You’ll start off in mid to late December telling yourself that you will commit to losing
weight starting the New Year. Over the weeks building up to the New Year you formulate
a plan of sorts… to eat less, make better choices, exercise more, and pick up better
habits.

And that’s the EXACT roadmap to failure!

And that’s why I’m writing this today – to warn you of this impending doom IF YOU’RE
ABOUT TO MAKE THIS “NEW YEAR RESOLUTION” MISTAKE.

Here’s what I mean.

Look, I’m going to be brutally honest with you, because I can’t see the “media” telling you
this truth any time soon.

The reason most people fail at losing weight in the New Year is because…

1. Your goals are probably unrealistic and so you’re already setting yourself up for failure.

2. You’re unprepared. Sure you have a general idea that you want to lose weight,
but you most likely do not have a game plan.

3. Your goals are unclear.

4. You lack support. Because the going WILL GET TOUGH and your support system
is what will see you through to your goal.

24satelliteImagine going to another country you’ve never been in before. Now imagine if I handed you a GPS but didn’t give you an address (a goal). You’d probably fail at getting to your destination, wouldn’t you?

Now imagine if I said your destination was a house about 150 miles north. Well, you now
have a general idea, but you’ll still never get to your destination and therefore fail.
Get the picture?

Now imagine if I handed you a GPS AND gave you the address of the house you needed
to end up at.

Once you type your goal destination into the GPS, it will give you VERY specific turn by
turn directions AND a very realistic timeline in which you’ll arrive.

Duh!

Makes sense, right?

Yet, nearly 96% of all people who set weight loss goals for the New Year don’t know how
much they want to lose.

And if they can pin point a number they want to lose – they still don’t have a “turn by
turn” game plan to get there.rant_5F00_small

Now the reason I’m on this soapbox and having this rant is because I’m sick and tired of good people being misled and being told half?truths.

Frankly, I hate the idea of a “New Year’s resolution”. That’s just way too much pressure on anyone. PLUS, the way I see it, you can do anything you want, anytime you want.

You don’t need to wait till the New Year. If you’re the type of person that I think you are, I’m willing to bet that you can do anything you put your mind to and you can do it whenever you want.

Now, if when you want is now, then start now.

And if when you want is in the New Year, fine with me, start then. But do it because you
made the decision to do it and not because the talking heads on TV and radio influenced
you to do it.

And now that you know how NOT TO FAIL, you can achieve whatever goal it is that you
want to achieve.

I believe in you!

Committed to your success!
