The "Ps" of Long Term Success, Part 4

You've got PASSION. You made your PLAN.  And you are physically PREPARED. The next step?


Pick up your posterior and proceed toward your goal. In other words: Get going!
This logo and its associated tag line says it best.

Your goal won't come to you. It won't be any easier if you wait to start tomorrow, or next Monday, or the sixth Tuesday of next month. If you wait until "The time is right", I can predict two things:
  1. when you finally begin your weight loss journey, you will weigh more than you do now, and
  2. you probably won't start at all.
Procrastinating a difficult challenge is common. The reality is, successfully changing your life will be one of the greatest challenges you will ever face. And it can be scary! What will people say as you make progress? What will people say if you don't make progress?

It's a lot easier to stay where you are. But is that what you really want? (That question is answered by your level of PASSION for your goal.)

"If the mountain won't come to Muhammad. then Muhammad must go to the mountain." Healthy weight loss will not happen spontaneously, just as smoking cessation will not simply just "happen". You need to take specific steps to achieve your goals.

This step is pretty simple. Get started. That's all. Nothing can happen until you begin.

What are YOU waiting for?

Keep coming back for more "Ps" of success. (There will be 3 or 4 more!) And, don't worry, I will continue to post more recipes here.
