Are you finding it difficult to get your new diet & exercise regime off the ground? What follows is a different approach that will guarantee to motivate you.
Write down what you want to look like. Describe your goals and compare it to where you are now. Make two lists. You should end up with a before (where you are now) column and a column where you want to be i.e. what you want to look like.
Now this is the important bit, you need to join the before and after column by writing down steps that will help you achieve your goal. These steps are the nuts and bolts of your success.
Once you have written all this down and the changes you would like to see it is easier for the mind to believe and accept it is possible.
Doing the above will give you a powerful psychological advantage and all of your efforts will take a giant leap forward. This is made possible by having a plan and a path to follow. According to my research this is a routine almost all successful people have used regardless of their goal.
