Hi Loves! I hope you are all having an amazing New Year! I recently posted a Facebook Live video on integrity and willpower when it comes to your health. In my latest Anton Newspapers article, I decided to go more in depth with this topic and really discuss what it is that motivates us in the long term to attain our health goals.
Here is a short excerpt from the article:
January 1st strikes and you’re motivated to become the best version of yourself. The New Year is a burgeoning new beginning to ignite change in your life. Motivation comes easily the first few weeks, and you start to make healthy changes every day. Suddenly, life kicks in and that healthy momentum starts to drastically slow down.
This year can and will be different for you! Motivation is intrinsic; you have to believe in yourself to make your goals become a reality. Honoring your integrity and harnessing your willpower are essential keys to accomplishing your resolutions this year. Here are a few tips on effectively utilizing integrity and willpower to make lasting change.
Write Down One Meaningful Goal
Resolutions are a productive way to outline your goals for the year ahead. However, it’s easy to look at every aspect of your life and make countless resolutions. First, you want to pay off your credit card debt. Next, you want to go to the gym every morning at 6 a.m. Then, you want to get that promotion at work. The list can go on and on. Don’t spread yourself too thin; try making one or two quality and meaningful goals this year. By focusing 100 percent of your energy on that particular goal, you’ll automatically increase your chances of attaining it. Make your goal specific and practical so you can set yourself up for success!
Honor Your Word
Integrity is defined as the quality of being honest. Now that you have outlined one or two very meaningful goals, it’s time to be honest with yourself by honoring your word. Every action you make should be in line with your health goals. When real life gets thrown at you, remember that you have an important promise to keep to yourself. You have the power to push through excuses and utilize full intention in this New Year ahead.
