Motivation Monday: “How To Finish Strong In 2015!”

Just a couple of weeks left in 2015, and it’s time to make them the best yet! Our motivational expert Tim Shurr says often, it’s not a lack of time or an overwhelming “to do” list that keeps us from reaching for our goals, although both those things can play a role. It really comes down to our subconscious fears! Here’s what he says plays a factor and how we can break through the barriers to create the healthy, happy life we all deserve!

Excuse #1: “It won’t work out.” Sometimes our lack of success in the past makes us think we can’t succeed in the future. Yet, just like the stock market, past performance doesn’t always predict future performance. Developing new tools, insights, and approaches can definitely lead to a new, empowering result!

Excuse #2: “I need to have a solid plan before I begin.” Often, this is just another form of procrastination because of excuse #1. Reaching a BIG goal requires you to achieve a series of smaller, easily attainable goals. For example, if you want to lose 100 lbs, start by drinking more water today. As you make progress, your confidence will increase and you’re next steps will reveal themselves.

Excuse #3: “It’s not a priority right now.”  If you don’t actively make your dreams a reality, they will never happen. Make a commitment to yourself and keep pushing unexpected distractions to the side. Check out the video to see a quick strategy for making this easier!
