Want 2018 to be the year you become the fittest and best version of yourself?
Every year we all set ourselves wishes, resolutions, and goals for the year ahead. But sometimes, these new year resolutions just don't come to fruition.
Canadian former ice hockey player and former coach, Wayne Gretzky has some sound advice for setting your 2018 ambitions, to give yourself a great chance of success and follow my goal setting guide below:
'You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.'
Step 1) Choose 2-5 goals & write them down (put them as your screensaver or on the fridge if it helps.) It may be worth writing one list for your fitness/health goals & a separate one for your other life goals.
Step 2) Make sure they are SMART goals (Specific / Measurable / Attainable (within your own personal capabilities, e.g. I am not going to ever be world’s strongest man) / Realistic (fits with your time availability & in proportion to how much you prioritise that goal) / Time Specific.)
Step 3) Get some accountability & support. Tell someone what your goals are and get them to hold you accountable. In my opinion family members are not your best option as they tend to let you off the hook too easily.
Step 4) Put in place an action plan. See below for my 60sec motivational talk - ‘A goal without a plan is just a wish.’
Step 5) Get started on them ASAP and don’t give up – There will never be the perfect time to start and there will never be the perfect week to achieve your goals. Every week has obstacles. It’s up to you whether you choose to use them as excuses or choose to work with or around them.
