Think Do Succeed Repeat

Do you know where you want to go? Do you set goals for the new year and throughout the year? Success comes from how we think, goals we set, and actions we take.

Think

Better thinking is the result of better health and better health is the result of better thinking. It’s all connected. If you feel better you are able to think clearly. Think about where you want to go , who you want to be, what you want to do this year.

Set Goals

After you’ve given some thought to how you want 2019 to be better than last year, set some goals. These are your goals, they can be whatever you want. Remember we set D.U.M.B. Goals not smart ones.

D: Dream driven – Think about your dreams beyond your normal scope of reality. Think Big! Think Magical!

U: Uplifting – You are so thrilled about your dream you want to do it now! You’re connected to your dream.

M: Method Friendly – You can navigate your goal easily, and you’re able to identify the habits around the goal that make it possible!

B: Behavior Driven: You can tie your goals into your habits to make them permanent. This process internalizes your goals.

Do/Take Action

Take action on your goals. You can’t reach any goal unless you take action. This may be the most single important action you can take. You can think about your future, you can set goals, but if you don’t take action all will be for nothing. Do something each day that propels you closer to your goal.

Take Action it’s the only way to succeed at anything you want to accomplish.

Succeed

Once you succeed at accomplishing a goal, you can celebrate or you can repeat this method and ride the momentum of success. If we celebrate too early, we run the risk of a short burn and possibly fall back into our old ways. Remember it takes 66 not 21 days to create a new habit and make it a part of you.

Repeat

One your goal is accomplished, set another goal while this momentum is fresh in your mind and consciousness.

2018 Goal

One of my goals last year was to weigh 20 pounds less at the end of the year than when I started the year. Well, I surpassed that goal by 11 pounds. I lost 31 pounds last year. I am ecstatic and set myself another goal for 2019 and it’s based on the momentum of achieving that one goal.

2019 Goals

  • I will weigh 50 pounds less than what I weigh today.
  • I will have another published book or possibly two.

These are just two of my goals. I’ve broken these down into 12 smaller increments. This breakdown helps me make these goals habit forming. I’m looking forward to the continuation of this healthy journey.

APRILS ACTION STEPS TO WELLNESS

Last month I went through how I save money because it is linked to stress which in turn is linked to our over all health and wellness. This month I thought I would go through my own action steps that help me concentrate on the wellness I wan to create in my own life, and help other people do the same. I’m calling this month’s blog posts APRIL’S ACTION STEPS TO WELLNESS. 

Since today is the April 1st I am tying the alphabet to the days of the month plus I’ll add four extra action steps that no wellness plan can be without.

do something

ACT: Do something. I want to achieve wellness so I must do something to accomplish this. There are seven dimensions of wellness so I must ACT on each of them to have balanced wellness at any point in my life.

  • Socially: I must DO SOMETHING to relate and connect with the people in my circle, my family, with my coworkers, and through my clients. So I began writing letters and making phone calls to people in my life that I wanted to thank and ask forgiveness for all the wrongs I’ve committed through the years. This helped me in reconnecting to people I haven’t spoken to in many years because of the hurt feelings that were between us whether because of my actions or not. 
  • Emotionally: I must ACT upon my own feelings: Do I let them out? Am I controlling them? Do I give myself permission to feel sadness and cry when I need to? Am I filled with hope instead of stress? Do I share my feelings in an appropriate manner with my loved ones? These are some questions I ask myself lately. Last month was kind of difficult because it began with accusations being hurled at me from a relative and I stopped sucking up the feelings and let them out in a nice but firm manner but the relative took what I said as fuel for the fire that burns within them. I did something! It felt good to stand up for myself. And it was long time coming. We can’t let other people trample our feelings with their words and expect our wellness not to be at stake. If some one is trampling you or your feelings, only you can put a stop to it.
  • Spiritually: I ACT everyday in this area by praying and studying my bible. The Words of God bring me peace. I am calmed by knowing that there is hope in God’s Word. By studying I bring God’s Words into my mind and I’m leaning on Him to help me get through my days.
  • Environmentally: Each day I DO my part in recycling, in not buying items that are over packaged. I also make sure that I water and tend my plants both indoors and out. I also cut down on the use of our vehicle so I’m not wasting gasoline. We are supposed to be stewards of the land (the bible tells us this) each of us need to DO our part in helping our children and grandchildren have an environment they can live in.
  • Occupationally: I love helping other people in making better health choices for themselves. It’s fulfilling when I see the light bulbs go off in people’s lives about something they didn’t know about what could possibly work for them. It brings me joy in knowing that I can make a difference in the lives of the people who work with me. Click here if you want to work with me and experience the joy that comes from loving what you do for a living.
  • Intellectually: I am always actively researching new ideas and paths. Learning is a lifelong joy for me. I love learning and make it a priority every day to learn something new. A long while back I read the books of Leo Buscaglia. He tells a story of how when he sat down at the dinner table he had to tell his father something new that he learned that day before he could eat. I remember that story because I am that same way with my husband. I am always telling him what I read about and how many different health issues are all linked to the foods we eat.
  • Physically: I ACT out in exercising, watching my portions, eating only organically, maintaining my health with no medications. I live a life filled with only 5 supplements (ASEA, my multi-vitamin, Vitamin D, Omegas,  and B-complex). I’ve never smoked or used drugs. Health has always been in the forefront of my mind.

So throughout the course of my day I am working on each and everyone of these seven areas of wellness whether I’m thinking about them or not. Plus for me I think they are all connected with my spiritual wellness because when I’m not on track with my prayer and bible study nothing seems to work for me.

What will you ACT on today that will make tomorrow’s wellness better?
