Start a Success snowball

The concept here is that succeeding at small goals will lead to you succeeding a larger goals. In other words.

For example, to lose weight typically requires consistent diet and exercise. Instead of focusing on both at the same time. Focus on one specific goal to for a month until it becomes a habit and then expand to new goals instead of try to accomplish everything.

For inspiration read the NBC News article, “How this woman lost 75 pounds: Gradual lifestyle changes were the key to her weight loss success” for inspiration.

Maybe drink a little more water, get a little more activity in. Maybe rather than taking the elevator, take the stairs. Just do a little more, because all of those healthy habits compound over time, and they snowball into big results.


After you’ve had some success expand.

For example, consider what it would take to make Monday’s your best fitness, diet, social, and mental day. Ask yourself these questions:

  • What would your workout routine be?
  • What time would you do to the gym
  • What would you eat for break, lunch, and dinner

Next consider what it would take to execute your perfect Monday. What food would you need to have

Now execute your perfect Monday. During the day, note if there were any issues . For example, you forget your gym bag and couldn’t go the gym, did you have to buy fast food for lunch .

Evaluate how you did on Monday night, did you achieve you goals and what needs to be changed ?
