“The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your fitness goals do not scare you, they are not big enough.”
― Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
You’ve got yourself a fitness and weight loss goal…
But have you defined it?
A goal is a measurable end result, having one or more objectives to be achieved within a fixed timeframe.
Yet, most people, when they first meet with us, have a goal that is clearly undefined and extremely vague. Of course, you want to lose weight, but you don’t know how much or by when? Yes, you want to build strength, but you don’t know how much, why, or how you can do it? Without a doubt, you want to train for a marathon, but you don’t know what to do, how often to do it, or when you should start?
So are those really even goals?
By definition, NO!
And the reason they aren’t is that, if they are undefined with no how, why, or when, how can you measure their progress?
This week is the first week of the New Year!
It’s exciting, refreshing, and rejuvenating!
According to the statistics, approximately 80 percent of people never set goals for themselves and of the 20 percent that do, 70 percent fail to achieve their goals.
This week, we’re going to discuss why people fail, the importance of goal setting, and then take a one to two-minute survey to define your goal. This will enable you to focus and commit to each and every step along the way to accomplish it. After all, how are you going to celebrate the New Year and accomplish your goals if you can’t celebrate each and every step towards achieving them?
