New Year New You, or Same Old Story?

Happy New Year, I hope 2015 was a great one for you and that 2016 will be even better. What are your plans for improving your life in 2016? Or are just content in just doing the same old thing day after day and getting the same results? You know that’s the definition of insanity right!

Most people including myself have been no different, use the new year as a time to write down their goals for the year. However what happens for most ( I am guilty of this as well)  is that they write them down then they forget about them. Once you have written them, that’s a great 1st step accomplished. Now you must detail a plan for accomplishing them.

The reason that I am writing about this is because I want to make 2016 the best … Read more


Are you or should you be? To your goals that is. This hit me when one of my friends from the gym saw me today and commented that I must not be committed as I did not make it in for my regular workout time of 05h30 yesterday. My excuse was that one of our kids was up a few times over night. However excuses be gone, come hell or high water I will certainly be there for tomorrow.

If getting out of debt is your goal. Then you should write your goal

Don’t get me wrong, this is not a recommendation to act like a dictator. I simply mean that if you do not have clearly defined goals and plans to achieve them, then you are working to help someone else achieve theirs.

Believe it or not, it is not that hard to do. You can start small and work up. What do you want to achieve tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. Then describe in vivid detail what your long term goal looks like once it has Read more

Big Goals are meant to be shared!

At one time or another everyone has started off a new year with a list of goals and objectives they want to accomplish. The common goals that people have are; to lose weight, quit smoking, get in shape, make more money and get out of debt. They start the new year off with all the right intentions; some take action but not everyone. Most people quit before they succeed. What most people don’t realize is those who do succeed, did not do it on their own.

We have all heard the common expression “No man is an island.” It couldn’t be truer when it comes to achieving goals and getting ahead in life. People who successfully lose weight seek the advice of those who have done it before – from diet books, fitness trainers or support groups.
