- Decide on a positive and forward moving goal. That means rather than saying, "I don't want to be overweight" say, "I want to lose x pounds and eat healthy foods every day".
- Write a short and simple value statement. For example, "I value time with my friends and family. Being healthy will afford me more energy to spend with the ones I love".
- Create one new ritual and implement it until it requires little effort. Then add another ritual and so on. Make your rituals sustainable and think small. Small changes can make a big difference. If your goal is to lose x pounds, maybe set a goal of walking around your neighborhood for 15 minutes every day. Pick the same time of day whenever possible.
Experiment this week by applying this process to a short term goal. Once you have put it in to practice apply it to bigger goals and ideas in your life. Let me know how it goes. I would love to hear from you!
