When you’ve created your healthy living objectives and visualised them in as much detail as you can, ask yourself how committed you really are to making these objectives a reality.
For every goal that you really want in life, you will need a ten out of ten commitment level. You’ll have noticed this with projects that you’ve succeeded with in the past. There is a direct correlation between your level of commitment and your level of results.
If you approach a project with a five out of ten commitment level thinking, ‘it’ll be good if this works out so let’s play it by ear and see how it goes’, chances are you’ll end up with a five out of ten result.
If you really want to succeed, you need to approach your projects with complete, unstoppable commitment. If you really want to make a difference to how things will be in the future, you really need to focus your full attention on what you’re aiming to achieve and what you need to do every day to achieve it.
Commitment creates motivation, motivation generates energy and energy leads to results.
If you rate your commitment for a project or goal and find it to be less than ten out of ten, you must ask yourself what prevents you from feeling totally committed. What is it that is holding you back and blocking your progress?
Pay close attention to what you come up with here as making plans to overcome these issues can create smaller goals that feel more manageable on your way to your larger objectives.
Treat these mini goals in the same way as you treat your larger objectives. Set a deadline for achieving them, establish what you will gain by achieving them – as many personal benefits as you can think of – and then visualise success in every detail.
