Well, we are 2/3 of the way through January-- are you continuing to vigorously read your goals out loud? How about bouncing off to the gym with the same skip in your step that you started with at the beginning of the year?
Don't feel too bad if you find yourself losing some steam. It's natural to wane in enthusiasm, especially when the date for achieving your goals seem so far off.
But before you give up altogether (and then really, justifiably feel bad), how about doing a check on whether or not your are sabotaging yourself (for many of us...) again.
Here are some things to do to avoid self-sabotage:
"In addition to reading ten pages a day of a motivational or inspirational book...listen to a self-improvement CD for at least 15 minutes every day... If you spend that time listening to educational and self-improvement material, you'll have the equivalent of a Ph.D. on any subject you choose in just a few years. That's the Slight Edge." ~Jeff Olson, author of "The Slight Edge: Secret to a Successful Life"
**An example for altering chronic negative thoughts and statements would be to wear an elastic band around your wrist and snap it when you find yourself thinking or saying something negative (eg., unkind, unjust, judgmental, untrue, hurtful, malicious, cynical, pessimistic, etc.) Check out these classy adult wrist bands that can be printed up with helpful reminders or slogans on your computer.
