Tip #24

 

Goals (never fail unless you stop trying) 

You Never Fail Unless You Stop Trying. If you’ve been on weight loss and fitness plans in the past, and they didn’t produce success for you—it’s OK.  That's over.

Remember, it wasn’t your fault.  You didn’t fail—those programs failed you. They were destined to fail from the start because they didn’t change your habits. Your desire to get Lean may be strong. However, the negative reaction you’ve had by gaining the weight back may be even stronger. Even if you were not successful in the past, keep thinking you can. Your attitude will directly affect your Lean success.

Knowing that your weight and inches didn’t come ON overnight, and realizing that they won’t come OFF overnight, is important knowledge. The idea of thinking Lean is a proven and effective means towards helping you reach your goal.

You must know that having setbacks are part of the process of change. You will make mistakes and slip-ups will occur. Guess what? – It’s OK.

You’re going to have days where you want to give up, not be as healthy as you should, or want to just binge on food all day long, or not do any movement at all. This is a learning lesson. It’s another opportunity for you to advance closer to your goal. These are what I call “So What “ days. We all have them, and it’s normal. It’s a given—they’re going to happen.
