Recently I saw a program on daytime television, which I will confess that I rarely watch, but this caught my attention. I honestly can't remember what the show was about, but I remember this one guest, obviously struggling with her health, weight and an ineffective family dynamic, who stated "...you just don't wake up one day and decide to lose weight...". I waited for the host to comment, to address this statement. He is generally an insightful and painfully direct individual, but this time he missed a clear opportunity to hit the nail right on the head.
Yes, that's exactly what you do. One day, regardless of past successes or failures, you physically or metaphorically put your foot down and say ENOUGH! Then, you do something. It doesn't really matter what you do, but you do something. Walk around the block, join a gym - and attend, find a supportive program (more on those later). But what you do, what you must do, is decide and act on that decision. It doesn't matter what you do today, just do it and do the same thing again tomorrow, and every day for a week. Build on what you have done.
This same principle applies to weight loss, general health improvement, strategic business changes, life changes, everything. DECIDE and ACT.
Check back later and we'll talk about supportive programs, general techniques, and other methods to help you achieve your success. But nothing will succeed, repeat - nothing, until you make that decision that today is the day, enough is enough, and no matter what it takes I will succeed!
