Are you ready to get fired up!? I hope so, because I want to talk about something GAME-CHANGING for your success. It’s something that creates the backbone of every single one of your “wins” … in pretty much every area of your life.
It’s your HABITS.
“We don’t rise to the level of our goals; we fall to the level of our habits.”
– James Clear
This time of year we start getting geared up to set goals and soon our “New year Resolutions.” And that’s great.
BUT … without the right habits to back them up, those goals most likely aren’t going to amount to much.
So I want to float this by you:
What do YOU currently have on autopilot every day? Things like:
- How you start your day
- What you eat for lunch
- Parking near entrances or far away
- Your workouts
- Your overall food choices
- Your nighttime activities
- What time you go to bed and what time you wake up
- Reading books or watching TV
- Drinking water or soda
You get the picture.
Now, go through your habits and PINPOINT the ones that are actually helping you to reach your goals … and also the ones that need an upgrade.
You don’t have to overhaul everything. Just choose ONE to start with.
The goal is to upgrade your habits to the “level” of your goals, that way, when you DO reach those goals, you’re able to maintain them!
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!
Are you a fan of no-bake cookies? Soooo good!But have you ever seen the original recipe? Talk about fat and sugar bombs … whoa!Not anymore … I’ve got a healthified version for you that’s a lot less sugar, and – bonus – it’s loaded with fiber and antioxidants.
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!
Ever eaten at a gourmet sandwich shop and tried something new … and was BLOWN AWAY by the deliciousness?!Well, I’ve got a recipe for you today that’s based on one of those sandwiches. I’m drooling just thinking about it. It’s crunchy (the toasted bread) … creamy (the avocado & hummus) … and tangy (the sauerkraut).
