I was on a call this morning and a question came up that forced me to examine my own values, goals and dreams for this week and a bigger picture for this year. As we move right into fall some of us are thinking of things we might want to be or have different for this change of season. When it comes to health, fitness and wellness goals I am clear on my “Why”. Why have I made a decision to make these three things a priority in my life and why have I chosen a Health and Wellness coaching business to assist with your goals (and mine)? Here are some things are motivating to me and might be meaningful to you.
- I want to feel and function younger then I am and have fun doing it
- I want to feel and look good in my body
- I want to fend off some of the diseases that hit many people as they age including: Alzheimer’s, Dementia, high blood pressure and a host of other things.
- I want to be around as long as possible to enjoy the milestones in my daughters life.
So if there is anything that you want to be different for you sooner rather then later and if so what is it?
Next what is your “Why”? Without a very strong motivator it will be much harder to stay the course. If you do want something other then what you are currently experiencing for 2015 in the area of health, fitness and wellness I challenge you to get out a sheet of paper and write down what it is. Do you want to get in better shape, get into your favorite jeans, have fun while you workout, get outside more, eat less fast food and more whole foods or drink more water. Perhaps you want to experience more freedom?
Once you have identified this part of your goal you will be that much closer to taking the next step towards change. We all have different motivators for what we do and what we are willing to change in order to achieve a different outcome then the one we are currently experiencing. I know for me I am looking to the future in my health/fitness choices. I want to have fun, I want to feel strong and live a life with no restrictions. I want balance and I want to fully enjoy today and tomorrow.
What do you want that is missing in your health/fitness and wellness program and most importantly why would you want to make a change or changes? Here’s to you and your next steps. Change is never easy. Sometimes we just need to jump off that cliff!
