Instead


Statistics show that most people who set New Year’s resolutions based around health and fitness fail miserable within just a month or two.


Don’t be statistic.


But you are motivated to feel better, look better and perform better in life and it’s a new year, so why not set a resolution and get after it?

I’m not saying not to.


What I’m saying is don’t do what the crowd does because it doesn’t work.

Be smarter and stand out from the crowd.

DON’T post “motivational” memes and images on your socials.


Instead change your habits and get to work.


DON’T set a weight loss goal.


Instead change your habits and get to work.


DON’T rush to the gym at 5am.


Instead change your habits and get to work.

DON’T start a new diet.


Instead change your habits and get to work.

DON’T put pressure on yourself to do EVERYTHING right.


Instead change your habits and get to work.


DON’T invest in lots of fancy supplements, potions and programs.


Instead change your habits and get to work.


DON’T limit your calories and deprive yourself.


Instead change your habits and get to work.

DON’T give up sugar, alcohol, gluten, carbs etc.


Instead change your habits and get to work.


Are you catching my drift?

Long term results always have, an always will, come from intentional and consistent effort over time. Change your habits to change your life. It’s really as simple as that.

Fat Lenny decides he wants to leave his home in New York City and drive to Los Angeles. He is determined and motivated. He decided to leave on January 1st.


On day one he buys the most expensive car he can find, and he get on he highway driving 90 miles per hour. He drives all day and all night because this is the year he is going to get to Los Angeles.

Wait, what?


Yeah, Fat Lenny has done this every year and every year he makes it part way and something goes wrong so be always ends up back in New York broke and deflated.

Smart Sammy decides he also wants to leave New York and go to Los Angeles, except he takes a different approach.


Sammy buys an economical car and sets our on January 1st by driving a maximum of 100 miles each day. He fuels up along the way, does regular maintenance on his car and does sightseeing each day.


Sammy decided to be intentional and to enjoy the journey. After a while Smary Sammy drives into Los Angeles having enjoyed his trip and ready to embrace his new life.


Are you going to be like Fat Lenny or Smart Sammy?


If I were you I would go with Smart Sammy.


Create and maintain good habits. It’s simple. It’s effective. It works.

It may not be flashy but, at the end of the day…. I’ll take effective over flashy any day.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything. I’m here to help.
