Watch Your Self-Talk!

So, how are you progressing with your New Year's resolutions?

Are you on target with your goals or already straying from the course?

If your plans are going askew, then you need to ask yourself this:

`What are my dominant thoughts right now? Am I truly focused on achieving my goals or am I allowing some negative self-talk to cause doubts, procrastination, and ultimate failure?'

Now, be truthful!

Are you talking yourself out of achieving your goals?

Sounds crazy but if you let your thoughts run away, your goals will be left behind.

You will recognise the little chatter that goes on in your head. Chatter such as ... `I can start my diet tomorrow', or `I don't really feel I have enough energy right now', or `I don't think I'm up to this task', or `It doesn't matter if I don't do this today', and so on.

Don't let the little lazy doubting voice within you sabotage your dreams!

As soon as such thoughts come into your head, replace them with positive self-talk ... `I CAN do this, and I'm going to do it RIGHT NOW' ... `I'm more than capable of achieving my goal today' ... `Each step takes me closer to my ultimate goal'.

When you're mindful of your thoughts, you can eradicate the negative talk that holds you back.

So, where are your thoughts right now? ... On achieving your New Year's resolutions right?

Okay ... go to it!

"What you get by reaching your
destination is not nearly as
important as what you will become
by reaching your destination."
