I meet so many people who tell me how they try to diet, or try to start an exercise regime, but do not succeed because they didn’t have “enough will-power”.
Wanting something isn’t enough – that far off goal is just too far away for most of us. We need something far more immediate to get us motivated, we need to set milestones which will lead us, one by one, towards our final goal. It’s not our will power that lets us down, its the way that we set our goals!
Think small and immediate, each goal bringing you closer to the next goal, and the next one. Write these goals down, research has proved writing goals down on paper makes them much more likely to be achieved. They become more concrete, more real.
