The Happy Place Diaries

A Happy Life starts with a Happy Place

20-new-year-resolutions-list-2019-619x330Ok then.. you made all those resolutions and are motivated to make 2019 the “Best Year Ever”.  It is the 7th of January… how’s it going? One week into the New Year and I just came home from the gym.  Yep you guest it.  At least a third  less people that started a week ago.  Now I’m not judging here, just saying that if you really want something… DON’T GIVE UP!
You need to set the goal and go get it!  We talked about goal setting in another post and how it can help you find success.  That success leads to more and more success and soon it becomes easier to set and keep goals.  I think that too many people give up because they don’t get immediate results.  I sure worked that way.. but reality is what it is.  If I could write a goal to lose 10 pounds and POOF! It happened tomorrow I would be a happy camper.  But the fact is that it takes work, time, and energy, and most of all WILL.
You need to will to cross the finish line.  Today was hard at the gym.  I felt the affect of skipping two days (had to be there for my Grandson to be born).  The holiday meals and treats caught up and the alarm clock went off way to early.  But it’s the 7th of January and I had to make a choice.  I had to get up, put on the gym clothes and get in the gym.  I had to do the work so that tomorrow will be easier to get up and get the work in.  And so it goes.  That journey starts with a single step, but put a handful of steps together and you gain momentum that will lead you to accomplishing your goals!
So don’t give up.. especially on yourself.
So there is you Motivation for Monday.
Find yourself a reason.. find the will.. and GO FOR IT!
