Lessons for achieving your goals

Want to achieve your goals?  The biggest tip I can give you is to stay focused on your goal. There are many distractions in life and there will be obstacles that will take you off course.  Those are the times when you should check-in with yourself to regain focus on what you’re actually working towards.

Weight loss is never an easy road and it’s easy to get frustrated or to lose hope.  Keep pushing through those tough times to build your strength, resolve and character. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it, right?


Always have a plan to where you are going.  That road map will be important for your mile posts along the way.  Mile posts are our ways of checking in to make sure we’re still on track.

Those obstacles will sometimes be a blow to your confidence and make you second guess EVERYTHING.  Obstacles are not things that should block us from achieving what we want.  Obstacles are there to test us to see if we’re strong enough to deserve what it is we’re going after in life.

Keep a positive attitude.  Negative thoughts will take over your entire life.  Something so small breed and affect things that have nothing to do with the initial negative thought.  It’s important to always keep a positive attitude, especially when moving toward the future.

Everyone does not always have to like you.  Everyone definitely will not love you.  Don’t take that into your mind as a bad things.  Because you know what?

There is always one person who will always love you and that is yourself. Always love yourself.  When no one else is around, you will always be there.  Take care of your mind, body and soul because you are definitely one person you can always count on in life.  Don’t ever talk yourself down, be negative or feel worthless because you are worthy of everything you have and want.

I remember not too long ago Taylor Swift said in an interview she was very protective of her happiness. Yes, it’s T-Swizzle but she really seems to have a grasp on life and what she wants out of life.  This really made me think about how careless we sometimes are with our own happiness.

Be an avid protector of your happiness. Being happy will go far and change your world. Sometimes happiness will make the impossible seem possible which means that fear won’t guide our decisions.

Here is to achieving your goals whether you are tackling weight loss, seeking a new job, on your own quest or wherever you might find yourself venturing.  Remember these things and you will go far.
