Well here we are, the final part of my top three reasons why people quit, if you have read my previous posts you will know what this one is. In my opinion this is the most important one hence why I have left it till last.
GOALS…. REALISTIC GOALS!!
I cannot stress enough how incredibly important this part is and I will admit its something I am guilty of not setting though this is something I am now trying to change. If you keep up to date with the content I post you will know I listen to a lot of podcasts, read books and just try and learn as much as I can from personal trainers, life coaches and other people who are knowledgeable in areas of fitness, business and personal development.
What is one thing that they all say? Set goals with a realistic deadline, this is something I touched upon with the example I gave in my last blog post. Set a goal for a years time like say you are really overweight and want to have lost 8 stone in weight then reverse engineer that, how are you going to get there? Set a goal of losing 5 stone by September and then come close and say lost 3 stone by June then come even closer and say you want to have lost a stone by end of February, this obviously works with different goals as well this is just the first that popped into my head.
Now the most important part of doing this… WRITE IT DOWN! You won’t believe how much of a difference it will make just seeing you goals written down on paper. It is all well and good having them in your head but as soon as you see them written down you will become a lot more motivated to do them then put it on your dresser or bedroom door, somewhere you will see it every day so every day you look at it and know what you are working towards.
Well there you have it the top three reasons why I think people quit, hope you found this helpful or interesting but for now I will leave you with this:
“Your vision of where or who you want to be is your greatest asset you have. Without having a goal it’s difficult to score.” – Paul Arden
