Every now and then we all can use a friendly reminder as to why we are embarking on new journeys, discovering something new, growing and learning from past encounters. Since this is only the second month of the new year, I bet that many of you set new goals in which you wanted to accomplish this year. Whether it be nutrition, finance, relationship, or fitness-related, it is important to keep your goals a priority as you tackle your daily life schedule. Remember, you came up with these goals for reasons important to you. So stay the course and follow through in accomplishing each goal.
Below are some words of inspiration to help re-ignite the fire within to get you going again. Print out this list, write down the quotes that spark your interest and post them on the refrigerator, mirror, or somewhere you are guaranteed to see it daily. Read each quote out loud daily. Stay inspired, stay hungry for change. Share with friends on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media — you never know who else you may inspire.
–> “In order to change behavior, you must be clear about what satisfaction that behavior is giving you as well as what it is costing you, then make a conscious decision to move.”
–> “Change is much easier to deal with when we get help. Getting support not only makes dealing with change easier for us, it allows other people to be of service, which is something most people love to have the opportunity to do.”
–> “If you are motivated to seek better health, all that you need to achieve it is practical information… any addiction can be broken if people are motivated to do so.”
–> “A great tool to decrease negative behaviors and choices is to add more positive behaviors and choices, to strengthen and extend habits you probably already have, habits of eating, exercising, breathing, using your mind, and nourishing your spirit.”
–> “Have empathy and compassion for yourself and others in going through change. It’s not easy for most of us. By embracing change we become not only more effective in dealing with it, but more peaceful, present, and powerful in our lives.”
–> “Make a list of what’s important to you to help stay motivated and focused, whether it’s to get rid of anxiety or lose weight. Then find a way to make sure that you can call on your motivational factors during moments of temptation.”
–> “You likely will have an occasional setback. But instead of giving up entirely after a setback, simply start fresh the next day. Remember that you’re planning to change your life. It won’t happen all at once. Stick to your healthy lifestyle and the results will be worth it.”
