Day 32 Get Focused, Know What You Want, and You Shall Have it

Spring Clean Your Body


“We are here for a higher purpose – and when our passion and focus are unshakably on the target, we can achieve against all odds.”

2008 NFL Hall of Fame-Nominated place kicker
Nick Lowery

When you’ve had a tough day and you want a candy bar or a beer, remember your goal.  What choice will bring you closer to your goal?  When our goals are clear, this kind of choice is easier.  When our goals are fuzzy, our default is to go for comfort and immediate gratification.  Being clear about our goals makes success possible.

Get out a piece of paper and write your goal on it.  Be as specific and clear as you can be.  What do you want, why do you want it, how will you achieve it, and how will you feel when you achieve it (or when you don’t).  And then write what your most likely obstacles will be and what you will do when each of them surfaces…because they WILL surface.

Because I’m a wellness practitioner, one of my goals is to walk the talk.  I want to be the picture of health and wellness, and I want to be able to say “follow me, I’m practicing good health and wellness behaviors.”  If l say one thing and do another, what help am I to you?  Since my passion is to help people live healthy, happy lives…in this lifetime, I need to be on that path myself.  Having a clear goal, taking action, and staying focused on the benefits is my 3-step plan for success.  I’m not always 100% successful, but this goal keeps me moving forward.

What is your plan for success?  What keeps you on the path?  Share your thoughts at the comment link below.

    Hi Cheryl, I have just gotten caught up on your blog. I keep starting a cleanse and then I come up against a lack of planning, give in “a little bit”, and then those old cravings kick in and I completely blow it. Your tips, recipes and insights are inspiring, and have my brain ticking away, thinking of things to add to my plan.

    Hi Beth – I think cleaning up our diets is one of the most difficult things we can do. Food is so tied to our habits, our childhood comfort foods, our job stress, and availability of food. It’s bound to get challenging. I say, just keep trying. Father…just keep doing.

    It’s challenging for me too. But it’s a worthy goal.
