2012 — Year in Review

Yes, 2012.  It’s not a review of 2011, it’s about 2012.  Start fresh.  I say “year in review” because I think it’s good to see yourself at the end of the year.  What have you accomplished?  Did you reach your goals?  Are you a better person?  Did you have fun?  Think about it.  Really think about what you want to accomplish this year.  Some of you have made resolutions (supposedly 85% of Americans), some don’t even bother.  It’s a no wonder why!!  According to surveys, only 8 percent of Americans successfully achieve their New Year’s resolutions so 92% are not kept. 80 percent of those who make New Year resolutions have failed by Jan. 20.  Really?  How’s that for motivation?

I am already writing this past the point where 80% of people fail.  Where do you fall in the mix?  Still going, still motivated I hope!?  Why not be the 8% this year?

Here is my advice.  Don’t just have a resolution.  Write it down.  Share it with others.  Then – make an action plan of how you are going to get there.  Writing your goals demonstrates your accountability to yourself.   If you say “my resolution is to lose weight” there is no definition to it.  If you say “I want to lose 10 pounds by June 1st by going to spin class 3x a week” – now that has more meat in it (no pun intended).  It becomes more of a goal than a wish.
Do you have a wish or a goal?  Redefine it into a goal.  Tell me about it.  Then get out there and achieve it.   Believe in yourself and MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! Cheers to a beautiful, successful 2012.
