I’ve got a weird tip today to help you make every day a great day … and set your mindset up for success.

I actually gave this challenge to a few of my clients, and this ONE small thing helped them build confidence and stay on track with their goals.

Here it is. (I’m going to tell you why it works below.)

  • Start AND end each day with 10 reps of your favorite exercise. (Could be squats, push-ups … you name it!)
  • Start AND end each day by writing down what you’re grateful for.
  • Start each by writing down your intention for the day … AND end that day by reflecting on how it went.

It’s not the specific WHAT that you choose that matters… it’s the WHY.

Starting and ending your day with an intentional good-for-you action sends a strong message to your mind that you are serious about your goals.

Taking a small, positive action at the beginning (and end) of each day will help set you up for SUCCESS because:

1) it doesn’t take much time, and

2) it’s ACHIEVABLE.

Try this for ONE MONTH and see what a difference it makes for you!

The fact is, motivation doesn’t just happen. It’s something that gets stronger the more you use it (just like your muscles). It takes regular upkeep.

When you have quick wins … and you begin to see (and feel!) your work paying off, it can help drive you forward to even MORE success.

If you were to take on this challenge, what one small action would YOU commit to?

The #1 enemy of your goals

The #1 enemy of your goals

If you could call out the #1 enemy of your goals, what would it be? There are so many to choose from:
Not having enough time, Lack of support, Not knowing what to do, Your genetics, Pizza…
The list goes on and on!

Setting realistic goals

Setting realistic goals

Every once in a while I get a panicked email or call from someone who wants to “lower their cholesterol down x points before their next doctor’s appointment a month from now“ or “get ready for a marathon in two months”. Don’t get me wrong: Those are all important goals … but they absolutely are not possible (at least in a healthy and sustainable way) in only a month or two!
