We’re six days into the New Year, and I would like to take this opportunity to say:
People may question your goals to get healthier or happier. They may question your desire to make 2016 your best year yet, so much so that you yourself begin to question your goals. Do I really need to make a change? Maybe I’m fine the way I am is fine. Why am I doing this again?
I want to stop you right there and let you know that I believe in you. I know that you can reach your goals this year. I know that you have it within you to make those difficult changes in order to reach your goals.
For example, at work, you state that your goal for 2016 is to cut back on your sugar intake. But, your coworkers continually bring sweets and treats for the whole office and tease you when you turn them down. "You’re fine, just have one! It won’t hurt!"
Don’t let people sabotage your desire to reach your goals. Often, these sabotagers are simply jealous that you have realized that you are ready for a change, and they simply aren’t ready to make that change. It’s their problem, not yours.
So continue on, hold your head up, and don’t let others bring you down. Know the why behind your goals and stick to them! I believe in you!
