Are You Still Making Changes?

So here we are into the month of March and this post is really a question for you: Are you still making the changes you resolved to make at the beginning of this year?

Don’t get discouraged

Look, I know from personal experience that it can be hard to make changes, the thing is that you can’t stop or give up! When you’re making changes and things aren’t going as planned, you easily get discouraged, when you get discouraged is when doubt wants to creep in and make sure you don’t succeed. You have to ignore the voices of doubt, whether they are in the back of your head or are coming from other people.

The changes that you are trying to make are too important to give up if you have slipped in your progress, don’t be discouraged. Everyone falls at one point or another in their journey to make changes in their life, the one’s that are truly committed get back up. Even if you have fallen down seven times in the last two months, brush your shoulders off and get back up!

Remember why you are making these changes

You started on this journey for a reason, you always have to remember and keep that reason as the motivation to make these changes. What do you want to change this year? One of the most popular things people want to change is to lose weight, I’m in this boat with you.

If you want to lose weight this year focus on why you want to do it. if you lose weight you’ll look better, feel better. You will live longer and set a great example for your kids, you’ll have more energy and confidence. These are a few of the things you need to focus on and those moments when you’re doubting yourself, remember these reasons as motivation. When you focus on the why, you’ll get that extra energy you need to push you past any failures. Have the right focus!

Reach out for support

One of the best way’s to keep you on track is to reach out for support. A good friend or friends can encourage you when you feel down and remind you of what’s important. We all can use a little help every now and then so don’t be ashamed when you have to reach out. As we already know change is hard, so we’re going to need to use every weapon in our arsenal to make changes that will last for a life time. Just make sure you reach out to people who are positive, not people who want to say” I told you so”, you really don’t need that. Reach out to the right friends and tell them you need a little support, if they’re true friends, they’ll know how to help you!

Two months down and ten to go, don’t get discouraged, keep pushing forward. Too many times we have given up and not followed through with our changes, this year has to be different for all of us!

You can do this, I have confidence in you. If you have taken a little fall, get back up, change those things that are important to you!

Have you fallen down? What encouragement can you give? The comments are where we hear from you:
