What’s up my fellow fitness fanatics?! John here and I’m pumped because I’ve got a sweet Monday Motivator for you and it’s the eve of 2013 which will bring entirely new beginnings for all of us and fun, new resolutions. I know some of you get antsy when a New Year rolls around. You think of being older, of past resolutions that you failed to achieve, of how busy you’ll be and a ton of other “headtrash” that will kill your momentum and positive growth.
That is exactly the opposite of what you should be thinking and doing and it is not what we preach at Fast Action Training. In fact, I feel that we most closely align with the following quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who said:
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you’ll help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
At F.A.T. we’re all about making in impact and changing the lives of as many people as possible and I truly think that it’s our attitude and actions that help our members create the positive change they are looking for. The team and I all see the AMAZING potential in each and every person we touch….but do you see the potential in yourself? Do you recognize the crazy amount of POWER that you have at your disposal to create the change you’re looking for?
The only roadblock to the success that just barely escapes you…is you. Publiluis Syrus once said,
“Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.”
I have written hundreds of blog posts and Monday Motivators to inspire, motivate and educate you on what it takes to achieve the physique, health and fitness that you desire. Can you honestly say that you have implemented and utilized the teachings and advice? That you have completed the action items present in some of the posts? I know it can be tough to create this change and while some kick butt workouts are important, the most vital thing you need to change coming in to 2013 is….
You need to develop iron-clad willpower to see you through to the completion of your goals and New Years Resolutions. You need to maintain positivity in your life NO MATTER WHAT so you stay pumped up and focused on what you need to do to change your life. My advice is to do the following:
STOP watching the news. Stop reading the stories in the paper about death and destruction. Stop hanging out with negative people that bring you down. Stop yourself when you think about failure and giving up.
START hanging out with positive people. Start reading your favorite positive quote aloud every day. Start repeating your positive affirmations on a daily basis or listen to them on a recorder in the car like I do. Start by joining a gym or fitness studio with a positive environment, culture and members that will support you. Start reading uplifting and inspiring stories about the strength of the human spirit and the power of a positive mindset.
If you’re serious about changing your life and achieving your goals, you will do this without hesitation.
2013 brings exciting, new beginnings and twelve awesome months to make serious changes and dramatic impacts in your life. It’s time to unleash your power and potential and make 2013 a phenomenal year to remember.
Share your New Year’s Resolutions below AND what you will do to maintain accountability so that you see them through to completion.
Get ready for a fun-filled and wild ride! Have a great New Year and I’ll see you in 2013!
Dedicated to your success,
