“What’s going on everybody it’s about 5:45 am, right before I exercise I want to drop a little bit on you. Want to talk about, new years resolutions and goals in general. I have some notes here so I’ll be looking back and forth, I guess you didn’t need to know that but anyway. Three things to help you, stay on track with your New Year’s resolutions, stay on track with your goals.

First thing is, if you’ve been going around saying “new year new me” for the past 10 years and it’s still the same you, it probably has nothing to do with the year but a lot more to do with you because you’re the one saying it. So the first thing is, you have to recognize that trend, you’re carrying over the same habits from years prior… days prior. You are reproducing what you are, you’re not reproducing what you want because you’re not getting what you want. So the first thing you have to realize is, you’re putting off to tomorrow what should have been done last year.

Second thing: To think you need to wait till January 1st every single year to make a change, make a difference in your life, and change direction, is the most ridiculous thing ever. You have every day to change that.

So today is January 4th, let’s say by Sunday, that’s in two days.. You realize this year is not going the way you planned.. It’s really ridiculous to say “let me wait till next year, 2020 to make a change” or “maybe wait until next month, February, to make a change” You can make a change right now… it is 5:55, at 6:55 I can decide to do a different workout and not do the workout I originally planned to do or decide hey, I’m going to eat an apple instead of grabbing cake… It’s not a hard concept to grasp but people have issues grasping it.

Last and final thing: Write down what’s going right in your life…
I can have a bunch of fans telling me that I’m awesome and the second one fan tells me ‘I suck’ that’s all I remember. We’re programed to only remember the bad things So technically at the end of the year we didn’t really have a bad year we’re just only remembering the negativity that happened because we have such a strong emotional connection to it. What you want to do, is right down everything that went great during that year, that day, or during that week. You want to look at it at the end of the week or listen to it at the end of the day..

That will keep you from naturally focusing on so much negativity that it’s used to focusing on. Bring your spirits up and make you realize you didn’t have such a bad week, month or year..

Do that every so often and by the end of 2019, you’ll be saying “wow, this year was really great and I didn’t realize how many blessings I had..” most years you get blessed a lot and there are a ton of things to be thankful for but the problem is we’re only focused on the negative things that happened.. Which is why we say “this wasn’t my year..”

We say that for the next 10 or have been saying it for the past ten.. You can change your life drastically if you do these three things, I hope this helped someone.
