Being successful at whatever you choose depends on how prepared you are. If weight loss is a goal, then you must be prepared. And that preparation will take several faces
1) How prepared are you to be committed to this goal? Without a level of commitment success is unlikely. You must be committed 100% to your goal. You must not give yourself permission for excuses not matter what they are. Stand fast, stand strong – be committed!
2) How prepared are you to undertake the physical requirements of a weight loss program? Diet alone is not the ideal method of weight loss. A well balanced exercise program that combines aerobic work with strength training will help kick start your metabolism and get you started on the road to a successful weight loss program.
3) How prepared are you in the food department? Having the right foods ready to eat at the right time and in the right amounts is paramount to successful weight loss. When life get busy, as it does for all of us, not having a ready supply of the right foods will lead to either going without or eating junk food, both of which will sabotage your weight loss efforts.
4) How prepared are you for objections and resentment? Quite often when someone undertakes a weight loss program, there is resentment or subtle objections from either family members or friends. Friends may be envious of you and your strength/commitment to your goal. They may make you feel uncomfortable in social situations about your food choices. Family members also can undermine your weight loss efforts without meaning to. Having to prepare different meals for different family members is a reality if you are trying to monitor your own nutrition. This comes back to #1 and being committed to your goal – stand fast, stand strong!
Preparation is the key to success in whatever endeavors you undertake from personal goals to business to life in general. If you have a goal you must be prepared and that preparation in itself takes time to develop. A successful plan takes successful preparation – that will ultimately lead to a goal achieved.
Being prepared is an important element in success of whatever you choose to do.
