Feel Good Live Well Be Confident With The New You
During this festive season, try to slow things down. Spend time with the ones you love and care about. Take some time to talk with your spouse and kids about goals and dreams for the next year. Use this as a time to recharge your batteries (and not just by watching TV the entire time), and with excitement, think about a handful of changes or additions you want for your life in the new year. Is it your image or your body or your eating habits?
Well, believe it or not, one month (yes, that’s January) has already gone by. This leaves us with only 11 more months to dream and achieve our dreams. As a lifestyle coach who works with others to improve the quality of their lives through grooming and fitness, I am a firm believer that you will find the act of reflecting, thinking, dreaming and planning to be one of the most gratifying exercises you can do that will positively impact the rest of the months ahead. After all, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
So, let’s all take a moment to gather up the past year of victories and defeats, growing as well as those times of stagnation, and use it to wipe a clean slate and thoughtfully design the road ahead the way we truly desire it to be.
A master once said that people in this world can be classified into three categories. People who make things happen, people who watch things happen and people who ask “what happened”?
Let me share with you how this translates into action or inaction in our daily lives. Hmm…let’s use running as an example.
The person who has not run before but knows that running is a good step to improving his stamina, fitness levels and help him lose weight will put on his track shoes and run. He belongs to the first category of people who take action. Never mind if he starts to pant or perspire like no tomorrow. He just bites the dust and gets the job done by running. They make things happen.
People who watch things happen are those who may be interested to try running but often would adopt a ‘wait and see’ attitude as they are afraid to take the plunge. There are a lot of ‘what-ifs’ in their mind. They would rather forgo the premier leadership position and sit by the sidelines watching others run the first run. If others return safe and sound, they may then decide to try running.
The last category of people – people who ask ‘what happened?’ are the toughest nuts to crack. They seem oblivious to the surroundings and are living in their own self-designed microscopic world. To them, the world revolves only around their own feet and for themselves alone. So often, they are too busy with themselves than to take notice of what happens around them. Even when others have run past them or opportunities have come and gone, they would still be100% clueless. We all aspire to lead a healthy lifestyle free of all diseases and worries. We all aspire to look good and feel good. If you just replied ‘no’, you are lying to yourself. Looking good and feeling good are like two tickets to the front-row seats of any concert offerings. They present us a springboard to a better paying job, promotional prospects and having the qualities to attract the ideal opposite sex.
Pause for a moment and ask yourselves – are you someone who ask ‘what happened?’, watch things happen or make things happen? If you are serious about living your life to the fullest and being a better human being, there’s no ‘ifs and buts’. It’s about chasing your dreams. For where the past lies is but a distant memory, for the future is the seat of stark reality.
Like how I have impacted the lives of hundreds who have attended my workshops, talks and trainings, I still choose to be one to help you create the future of your dreams.That is if you give both of us a chance by taking action today.
See you at the top!
