Let's start this off with one of the absolute best quotes out there by Jim Rhon.
"We must all suffer from one of two pains; the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is that discipline weighs ounces and lasts a moment while regret weighs tons and lasts a lifetime!"

The time has come where we all try to improve ourselves, tackle our demons and come out stronger and better on the other side.  You may want to lose some weight this new year, maybe quit smoking, possibly this is the year that you will get your finances in line.  Whatever the goal the new year is a time to get a fresh start towards your goals.  It is like a new beginning.  But did you know that only 8% of people stick to their new year's resolution?  That is horrible.  If you were in Vegas that would be about the worst bet that you could make!

Don't fret, because there are some things that you can do to help be part of the 8% rather than the 92%.  Follow these steps and you will be happily surprised with how much easier it is to accomplish your goals and how much more motivated you will stay.
  1. Choose only 1 thing.  Changing only 1 aspect of your life is hard enough because the fact is that it will likely radiate into many more aspects of your life.  Just choose that 1 thing that is most important to you, and leave your other goals for another time.  Don't try to solve all of your issues overnight, that is guaranteeing failure on all fronts.
  2. Make it quantifiable and specific.  Numbers make all of the difference.  If you said something vague like, "I want to lose weight this year" then tomorrow you could drink no fluids, lose 5 pounds and by the 3rd of January you can stop working towards your weight loss goal.  Instead try "I will lose 25 pounds of body fat by July1st".  This gives you a quantifiable goal within a specific time line, much better.
  3. Make it public.  Guess what, you aren't perfect and everyone knows it already, so don't shy away from telling others that you are trying to improve yourself.  By telling others you will increase your accountability because others will establish expectations.  I know that this is a scary proposition, but do you really want to accomplish this goal or not?!?!?
  4. Put it up.  You need to make 10 LARGE PRINT COPIES and put them up all over the place, especially in places that have a negative effect on your goal.  For example, if you are trying to lose weight then putting one of your copies right in front of your face on the fridge is a good idea.  At least this way you are remembering and making a conscious decision to give yourself a moment of weakness, rather then just forgetting.
  5. Get support.  For every life changing decision out there there are companies that are specifically designed to help that goal become a reality.  For example, if you want to lose weight BR Specialists is a fitness company specifically designed for weight loss (if you want to try us out for free then follow this link for a free fitness training and weight loss trial). Don't try to do it on your own, because if it were easy then you would already have accomplished it!
  6. Make a plan.  In fact, make a VERY specific plan.  It is a fact that the more specific that your plan is the more successful that you will be (unless your plan does not fit the goal!).  For example, for weight loss you may do:  I will lose 25 pounds of body fat by July 1, I will eat six 250 calories meals per day, I will write down everything that I eat, I will lift weights every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 20 minutes, I will do cardio every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 40 minutes, I will lose 2 pounds per week until I exceed my goal, I will meet with BR Specialists once per week to keep my on track.  When I have a bad day I will call BR Specialists the next day to discuss.
  7. Plan on being weak.  I have trained over 2,000 clients trying to lose weight and MAYBE 8% of them did not have moments of despair, frustration and a desire to quit.  And even with my support some of them have even managed to quit in spite of being well supported.  In boils down to the fact that life is hard and changing your life is REALLY hard.  Plan on having moments of weakness so that when they arise you are ready to deal with them rather than quit because of them.
Remember, failing to plan is planning to fail!  If you liked this article make sure that you tweet-it, DIGG it, Stumble it, Facebook it or email it.  And follow us through out RSS feed for regular updates.
