Did you know that the day after labor day and January 2 are two of the biggest days of the year where people set goals?
In fact, around this time of year you’re probably going to start thinking about how you want your life to be like when January comes around. You might start setting some goals. You may want to build muscle lose weight or get stronger. Doesn’t matter what you’re goal is really
I’m gonna share with you 3 simple steps in order for you to attain all your fitness goals:
Step #1: A Clear Vision Of Your Goal
This is purely imagining what you want your life to be like the minute you accomplish your goal. Establish a visualization of yourself arriving at your goal and living it and make it as intense as possible in your mind. For a good book on how to achieve this you must take a look at Maxwell Maltz’s New Psycho-Cybernetics.
After that you are to remain optimistic, no matter what it takes, and HAVE FAITH that you will accomplish your goal(s).
Here’s a quick visualization tip. I’ll use the example of wanting to get stronger and lifting more weight for your next exercise routine
1. Take a deep breath, calm down and close your eyes
2. Imagine the last time you successfully lifted a weight
3. Be aware of all the feeling - the pleasure, the achievement, the fulfillment
4. When your performing this correctly you will be laughing at your success
5. Visualize yourself performing your next lift with success and FEEL those same emotions
6. Go make your lift!
The athletic professionals picture this technique for success. Likewise you can make use of the similar process on almost any goal: growing stronger, going on a diet, giving up smoking, making money, whatsoever…
Step #2: A Plan To Get There
When you have a vibrant imagination of what you want to accomplish, you need a plan in order to make it. And it’s as effortless as recalling the objective while following the plan. As George Foreman said regarding success it comes down to “Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan”.
It was successful for Georgey and I believe it will be effective for you as well.
Step #3: People To Keep You Accountable
This is frequently an ignored step. You certainly need some people in your life to keep you responsible. I hear as much as diets go that Weight Watchers is most efficient at getting people to count the calories since every week you have to inform a new person how much weight you’ve lost. And if you don’t well you don’t want to be the guy who didn’t lose weight right?
