Are you Lucky or do you Plan for Success?

April 11, 2023

Some people are just lucky by nature. However, 98% of success in any area of life doesn’t just occur by luck. Generally, we go through a process in which we make a decision and then go for it. We start with an idea, create a plan to implement that idea, and then do the hard work needed to make the idea a reality.

  1.  When it comes to weight loss, it’s imperative that you make yourself a priority. We tend to put others before ourselves and put our needs on the backburner. To be successful with a weight loss plan, you must make yourself a priority. That includes setting aside time to accomplish your steps (grocery shopping, meal prepping, exercise, relaxation, rest, etc.)
  2. Next, identify your values and goals: Start by thinking about what is most important to you in life. What is the reason for your goal and what motivates you to achieve it? What values do you hold dear, and what are your long-term goals? Write them down and prioritize them. Find inspiration: Look for role models who embody the values and goals you identified. Read their stories, watch videos or listen to podcasts about them. Let their success inspire and motivate you.
  3. Look at your lifestyle and identify which areas must experience change to reach your goal. Diet, physical activity, sleep, stress, alcohol, social life, and medications all play a part in your weight loss journey.
  4. Know that obstacles will occur. Life will happen. But having a plan B prepared when those things happen will keep you in control and give you the strength to get through them without being derailed.
  5. Celebrate your success: When you reach a milestone or achieve a goal, take time to celebrate your success. Acknowledge your hard work and determination, and use this momentum to propel you towards your next goal. 

By following these steps, you can create a plan that sets you up for success and helps you stay motivated along the way.
