Speaking Point: Research proves that most New Years’ resolution fail – why is that? When you align your conscious and sub-conscious mind with the same goal, success is natural. Here are a few tips on how to set your 2012 resolutions in stone and make it work.
Speaking Point: Pick a resolution that you REALLY want for yourself and write it down in the form of a positive affirmation. This is as if you were in the future and would have already accomplished it. An example would be: "I weigh 130lbs. I love exercising and my body is healthy and strong. I eat healthy meals and enjoy my food." Put it down where you can see it and state it aloud at least once a day!
Speaking Point: Build a community around your resolution – there is safety in numbers. Enlist a friend or coach to help keep you on task and focused – you can even draft a resolution contract together! It is great if you have someone who is trying to accomplish the same goal. If you know someone is waiting for you at the gym, then you will be a lot more likely to follow through. You can ask others for support even if they don’t share your goal. They can give you that extra encouragement in the moments you need it.
Speaking Point: See yourself already there. Take 10 minutes each day to close your eyes and see your goal already achieved. Feel what it feels like to be successful. Involve all of your senses in this imagery. If your sub-conscious mind can see you there and feels good about it, you will succeed.
