Do you know the difference between a dream and a vision?
It’s a plan.
As the New Year arrives there are millions who dream of weight loss, financial abundance and healthier relationships but as always, very few will make that dream a reality. Those who do will reap the rewards brought about by investing the time, energy and money required and the rest will be subject to repeat the same hopes and wishes the following year.
To ensure you’re living out the life you envision, follow these 5 steps and next year – do the same all over again.
1. OVERCOME INERTIA
One of the most difficult components of change is getting started, as we all know, objects at rest have a tendency to stay at rest. The quickest and easiest way to get “unstuck” is to take action. Even the smallest step in the right direction can be enough to start your positive momentum and the good news is once you begin…it will be tough to stop you!
2. HAVE A PLAN
When it comes to health, it’s easy…Life By Design is Your Lifestyle for a Lifetime™.
Just start with any of the four Life By Design steps, use the online information or visit a certified office near you for help. The only caveat with your plan is to make sure it’s correct, that it’s a plan that works. There are many quick fix programs waiting for you, but just remember, long lasting change takes time and effort.
3. PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
It’s so easy to get paralysed by doing everything perfectly. Unfortunately, the attempt at perfection can really slow down or halt your progress. If you have a set back, don’t wait until the next Monday, jump right back on the wagon and without feeling bad, get back to your task at hand…improving your life.
4. GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
Want a quick and easy way to add accountability? Start telling people about your plan. Enrol them into your vision. Not only will they ask you about it and help keep you on track, there’s a chance your leadership may even inspire them to join the mix and start taking charge of their own life.
5. FIND A MENTOR OR COACH
We know that success leaves clues and that the best of the best in all areas of life have coaches. Whether it is a mentor – mentee relationship or you actually hire a coach, one thing is for sure, finding someone or a team of people who have “been there and done that” can short cut your time and efforts significantly. Working with the right people can save you the pain and cost of choosing the wrong path and help accelerate your success beyond measure.
