First of all – welcome to our Self-Motivation Page. I know that you understand how important that your comments are to this blog so with that being said, I am hoping to get your feedback. As Morris Massey (described as a socialist, psychologist, historian and stand-up comedian) once said: “If you want to change the world, start with yourself as we’re all in it together.” So…let’s hear from you – please. 

Did you ever wonder why the majority of people fail to meet their objectives or complete their New Year’s Resolutions 95% or more of the time? It is because most people(without knowing it) are only working withwishes!  

Everything begins with a thought and some imagination. And, thats where most folks stop. If they would just takthat thought a step or two further, it would become a goal. So you might askwhat is the difference between a wish and a goal?  

goal is a wish with a deadline.”  The two most important components of a goal properly set is having a realistic idea or wish and having established a deadline for accomplishing that goal. Now depending on how complicated the wish is may require a few extra steps but your basic little goal such as; Ill need to get up tomorrow and go to work can sneak by with a minimum of steps. Such as: (1) get a reasonable amount of sleep and (2) making sure to set the alarm clock or as Zig Ziegler calls it – “the opportunity clock.”

What about a goal or a wish to lose some weight? Now, thats a bit morcomplicated. That requires much more than just a dream and a deadline. Did you know that our country is leading the world in obesityI think that we need to educate ourselves in proper goal setting – FAST! 

Using proper goal setting, I managed to drop 87 pounds in18 months. When my friends, family and coworkers see me they are astonished and want to know how I did it and I tell them that weight loss starts in the mind and not with a diet. You need to have a plan a strategic plan and a couple of other items but it does start in the mind.     

In my next post, I’ll go over some of the basics of what I feel is an organized way to start setting goals and what I consider to be a “Strategic Plan of Action!” We’ll also discuss your belief in “Cause and Effect” and a few other concepts that touch on Goal Setting in future posts.

  1. Hi Les,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving two tremendous comments. You have no idea how much that means to me. Had you not done that, I never would have heard about you and your fitness site.

    I really like what you said about loosing weight being in our minds. I never thought of it that way and it makes perfect sense.

    I need to loose thirty pounds and I want you to help me with that.

    I know Adrienne Smith too. She is an inspiration to everyone who crosses her path. You’re in great company.

    I wanted to ask you did you e-mail me or did WordPress send me your comment via e-mail?

    You have an awesome night!

    Linda
