Resolutions – personally, I don’t want to hear it anymore. There are too many newsletters advertising special offers around fulfilling New Year’s resolutions. Topic and wording have been repeated so many times, you really get tired of reading about it.
We all have hopes, dreams and wishes. Why don’t we pretend that 2016 never existed and therefore we don’t have to start 2017 with new resolutions? Why don’t we just pick a random day to start implementing our goals and dreams, regardless of whether it’s the beginning of a new year, or the end of the old? No excuses, no time pressure.
What do I want you to take away from this:
Let go of unrealistic resolutions at the end of the year – they won’t get you anywhere.
Instead, look at the new year as a chance to make some fundamental changes. It is in your hands to fight for your dreams and make them come true – no special offer, newsletter or blog will do that for you. You need to have the strength and the will to do it yourself.
Sounds logical, right?
For my part, I chose to finally start with a series of webinars because so many people keep asking me to make my lectures on nutrition, coaching, sports and other topics accessible online.
The first webinar I want to organize will be a 1.5 hour workshop designed to help you define your goals so you’ll be able to really work on realizing them.
If you are interested in participating, send me an email. I will let you know as soon as we have set the date for the webinar.
Until then, start thinking earnestly about what your goal will be and write down in detail where you want to be 1-5 years from now. Describe what the scenario looks like for you. Start a dream diary in which you jot down all the things you think are important and which steps you have to take to reach your goals. If you like, add pictures or draw some sketches.
It doesn’t matter whether your goal is to avoid or reduce stress, to find more time for family and friends, to do more sports, have more time for yourself, eat better, change jobs or emigrate…
It is all in your hands and only you are responsible for your excuses.
