Define Your Goals


The first step is to define what you want to achieve. How do you want to feel? Healthy and energized? Healthy and confident? In control of your weight? Whatever it is, write it down. When you physically write down your goals, you’re telling yourself, “I’m serious about this”. This makes your mind go to work on helping you stick to the plan.

The next step is to narrow your list to your top 5 goals. It’s important to have a focus. Don’t worry, you can always add, modify or change your goals. Once you have the list, reread it often!

 

Always Be a Goal Digger

Keys to goal setting

 

  • Be positive! Focus on what you want to accomplish — not what you are trying to get rid of. Use positive language. For example, instead of losing 10 pounds, make your goal to be healthy and feel amazing in your skin. Instead of not feeling tired anymore, make your goal to have tons of energy! 

  • Set process-oriented goals, too. Examples of process-oriented goals include: having twice as many leafy greens with dinner, waking up early for daily workouts, bringing your shakes to work, increasing your workouts by 5 minutes each week. 

  • Write your goals in present tense, as if they are happening right now! “I feel amazing in my skin,” “I’m healthy, happy,” and “I love my body.”

 

 

Visualize Your Success

 

You hold the key to something powerful and life-changing. It’s the strength of your mind and thoughts. The power of visualization. Athletes use it all the time, and we’ve used it to reach goals in our own lives. 

We have no doubt that you can alter your circumstances and increase happiness with positive visualization. This is about believing and seeing yourself get to where you want to be. Focus your thoughts and dreams on what you want in life and you will make them your reality! This is true for your health, your career, your relationships, your friendships – all aspects of your life!

Now that you have your list of goals, it’s time to picture yourself exactly where you want to be!

Use visualization while meditating, during workouts, as soon as you wake up, or when you fall asleep at night. All you need to do is imagine yourself achieving your goals: See yourself getting stronger, running longer distances, and sticking to your Nutrition Plan.

Once you see yourself achieving your goals, it will feel real. Visualization truly works!
