4 Reasons You Won’t Accomplish Sh!t In 2016
by Daddy Everyday Blog
Disclaimer: I was having a conversation and got upset about how this group of people thought they were going to accomplish what they’ve been trying to accomplish for years doing the same thing. I’m just typing what I feel and posting, because someone needs this message NOW. Warning: There might be errors but the point is accurate.
- It’s in the details. You want to start your own business, lose weight or spend more quality with your family, that’s the goal but goal setting is not what you should focus on. You need to focus on what you are going to change and do to accomplish the goal. Your focus should be I would dedicate two hours a week to creating and implementing my business plan. I will start exercising three times a week and start eating more fruits and vegetables in my meals. Cut out the sweets and fatty foods as well. Friday nights are family fun night, no cell phone, no work, and no distractions, just quality with the family. See how that is different than just stating the ultimate goal.
- You don’t believe. You say what you want to change or accomplish but in your mind you are already defeated by your thoughts. Quick story. My personal trainer wanted me to do a particular exercise and I told him I couldn’t do it. If he was there that would have been the end of it and I never would have even tried, even though I wanted to. Once I believed, I tried. Once I tried and struggled but I continued to believe. I did it. Believing that you can accomplish and putting forth the effort, you can do almost anything.
- It’s just for show. Save me with that I’m going to quick smoking as you are lighting up another cigarette. Quit talking about I’m going to get this weight off as you eat a supersize meal with a large diet soda. It’s a poor attempt to deflect the wrong you are doing in front of others. Nobody is buying it, not even you. So if you are going to say to me in 2016, that you are going to start your business when you get your money, I’ll just say okay, while shaking my head.
- You think January 1st magically changes you. I don’t know if anyone to told you this but January 1st doesn’t magically make it easier to start whatever it is that you are attempting to do. If you really want start a business, lose weight, be a better parent, etc. You have to start the process NOW. You have to prep and implement your plan ahead of the New Year so that you are ready to maintain it on the 1st.
