I want you to start the New Year with the commitment to make it your best year ever.
Being true to yourself and your dreams regularly is the key to achieving the results you desire. A good exercise is to look back on the past year and evaluate your goals and objectives. Here are the TOP 7 most important questions to ask yourself in order to take on the new year with energy and passion!!
1) Does the relationship with your partner have the awesome passion and joy you desire?
Passion and desire starts with you being present in your relationship. You can be together with your partner and not be present as you are listening, talking, and simply communication. Start today by being present and communicating with your partner and see what happens...
2) What have been some of your biggest accomplishments this year?
Maybe your accomplishments were not big, but everyone has small little wins along the way. All these wins show progress. Think of those little wins in a different light and learn from them.
3) Have you met your fitness goals?
Fitness goals are often set at such a high level that when you are not perfect you feel like a failure. Get moving, stop sitting, walk, run, jump and do something physical today. Even some physical exercise releases those endorphins to pick up your mood.
4) Are you eating healthier?
If the last 48 hours of food consumption scares you, then compound it over the past year. Yes, starting a diet headed into holiday is no doubt doomed for failure. Monitor your food intake and think conscientiously about eating healthier. Combined with your physical exercise will keep you focused to start the new year at the next level of a healthier you!
5) Have you given back to your community in any way?
Giving back can be most rewarding as the holidays approach. If you have the means, try to give back to your community by making a donation or contributing your time. Many families cannot enjoy the holidays due to poverty, illness, or even being the victim to one of the many natural disasters over the past year.
6) Have you achieved your important goals and objectives, or are you lost?
Make sure that your goals and objectives are achievable in the given time. But always remember that you cannot significantly change your life with taking some type of massive action towards that change. Have you done that or are you status quo? If you've continued to make the same mistakes during the past year, positive change is unlikely. Have you improved your overall life quality for yourself and your loved ones?
7) When you look in the mirror you have to like what you see-Do you say Yes or No?
See through the physical image in the glass and look deep into your inner self. YOU have to like and nurture your inner self to make things happen. Love yourself before you love others and say YES!
