We all know that the choices we make every day affect our ultimate outcomes in life, but have you ever stopped to think about how one decision leads to the next?
Take for example your first decision of the day, When the alarm goes off, you can choose to get up or to get back in bed. You can choose to go for a morning walk or sit around and do nothing. You can choose to review your major life goals or just read the headlines,
The rest of your decisions are no different. You can choose to pack a cooler full of healthy meals and snacks or take your chances at the vending machine or the drive through. You can take a change of clothes and prepare to hit the gym after work or you can come home and hit the couch in front of the T.V.
The fact is that no decision occurs in isolation. Habits build on one another to shape our character and our destiny in life. The good news is that you can start winning today! I challenge you this week to decide on your major health goal and a realistic deadline for completion. Maybe you would like to drop 20-30 lbs. by summer. That is definitely achievable. Maybe you would like to run a 5K or 10k. It can be done. It is simply a matter of choice.
Next, choose 3-5 things you can do each day to help you achieve those goals. Just write them down and check them off at the end of the day. Imagine them as a row of dominoes falling down as you complete each one. It sounds simple, but this one exercise could change your whole life!
Of course, I will be here to guide you through the process. This website is an excellent source of information on proper exercise, nutrition and the mindset to succeed. Each week, I share the strategies I have used to lose 80 lbs. and maintain my healthy new weight and lifestyle. If you are not already a subscriber, sign up today. This may just be the first good decision you need to make in order to start your own domino effect!
I am also teaching in person each week based on the nine Success Strategies from my personal coaching system.
