We are all winners and leaders in our own respective ways, let’s start acting like it and setting better examples.
First and foremost before committing to a goal, you must prepare yourself for change.
Whatever your goal is you have to prepare yourself mentally and physically for this.
We recommend starting off with a small goal you know you can accomplish easily.
Because this builds momentum and sets your mind right for a more challenging one.

If you need to engage with others about your goals and get their support, go for it.
You might ask close friends and family for support to help make the journey just a little bit smoother.
Every one percent of every single step means you have involvement or control over in your life.
This is transformed into what you think, what you eat, what you drink, where you live…
The environment you surround yourself and people.
Every one percent of every single step is important…
So once you have your goal set, map it out thoroughly and take action.
Key stages to consider when making a change are as follows:
Pre-contemplation puts you in a bad position and state of ignorance.
Basically its a tug-of-war and nothing convinces you to make a change in your life.
Contemplation is the most popular saying when contemplating change is “maybe next month I’ll get serious”.
When you are in this stage it’s easy to beat yourself up…
If you feel you’re not in the next stage as soon as you should be, you feel you are NOT making sufficient progress…
Preparation is thinking how great the result or outcome will be when you make change and achieve the goal.
Progress is moving yourself from preparation into motivation.
You ask yourself what’s it going to take to get there?
Take action is writing your goals down and putting focus on achieving within a determined time frame.
A really smart approach is to always carry you goals to remind you at all times.
Make time for each week; this helps keep you focused on what needs to get done for the week.
Actually take action on the change, no excuses, only solutions…
Go back to your preparation and map of your goals.
Now tweak it to see what stood in your way and figure out how to get around it.
We have all the tools to set ourselves up for success, so why not take action and get it done?
We believe many people are afraid to set goals and make changes. Why?
Because when people are in their comfort zone they feel comfortable with what they are doing in their daily lives.
People get so accustomed to routines it’s very hard to change them.
People are afraid of failure and don’t like admitting it…
If you fall off the track, get back on within 2-3 days and keep pushing there is no excuse to flat out give up!
Success Breeds Success…
Be honest with yourself and look at the bigger picture.
Take note of key areas you’ve been making progress and lean towards those.
Another step to remember during this process of change is to reward yourself for small steps you make.
Small steps are progress, every goal and milestone reached reinforces vision, motivation, determination and acknowledges your belief in yourself for planning and doing it.
Never beat yourself up about any situation…
The negative talk and stress is not worth it because you understand the importance of setting goals.
