It is 2018 Now What?

You have been warming up and getting ready to get on the stage to perform. In your mind you have imagined over and over about how you are going to perform on stage. How you will entertain the audience and how you will make them laugh and intrigue them.

Imagine that all the preparation is over and now you are on stage. Now is the time that you need to perform. Now is the time that you need to stick to your guns and remove any self-doubt. Whatever you planned to do on stage do it without hesitation and don’t back down.

I am sure many of us have already read a few articles recently on how to make resolutions for the new year and how to keep them. We read these articles almost every year around December all the way through February.

This is not one of those articles! I am here to give you a step-by-step guide that will make everything you touch turn into gold. I am here to tell you about the one thing that will make you a winner regardless of your situation.

Well, here we are again – New Year’s resolutions time! It’s that time when we resolve to do all the things we know we should do in order to live the better life we imagine for ourselves. And for most of us, those resolutions last all of ten minutes! Then we’re back doing the same old things that have brought us to a life that we’re less than happy with. And as the old saying goes: If you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life.

This is true for all areas of our life, but specifically we’re going to look at health and fitness in this piece. Most of us aren’t exactly where we want to be in terms of our health and fitness level. We want to be healthier, more trim and toned than we are at the moment.

We start off with the best of intentions. We decide that once and for all: We’ll eat more healthily, we’ll go to the gym and do all the things we know we need to do in order to get fit and healthy this year. So we do that stuff for a while, and then we stop.

What usually happens is that we reach a point where the temptation to eat or drink what we know we shouldn’t becomes too strong. We succumb to the bad weather blues when it comes to going out for a run, or we stay in bed for that extra hour instead of getting up and going to the gym for the workout that we committed to a few weeks ago. Then we gradually slip back into our old patterns of too little exercise and too much of the wrong kinds of food.

So how can we avoid slipping back like this and keep our new healthy eating and fitness regime going? Continue reading

How to Create New Year Resolutions and KEEP THEM!

2015 goals

That time of year is quickly approaching us. The time of year when you wake up on January 1st, stumble into the bathroom and shake your head trying to rid yourself of a ’10-day food, alcohol and holiday merriment’ haze. You look at your disheveled self in the mirror, brush your bed hair out of your eyes and make a declaration that “today is the day I make a change!”

Then you find yourself, a day, a week or a month later in the same spot you were that day you brushed your hair out of your eyes. (Not physically of course, literally, because that would be a long time to stare at yourself in the bathroom mirror.) Many start with the best of intentions but find more often than not their resolutions pushed to the wayside and quickly forgotten like the sweater your grandmother gave you for Christmas last year that was 2 sizes too small and is stuffed in the back of your overflowing closet.

I’m going to show you how to create resolutions that will not fall by the wayside and will stick, like that cherry-red piece of gum on the bottom of your shoe. Continue reading
