2: Plan to succeed
Don’t simply hope that you will succeed in reaching the goals you have decided on, plan for them. Take time to plan your week ahead. Plan how your day/week will look ahead of time to support you physically, mentally and spiritually to meet your goals.
This may mean planning your week’s meals ahead of time, blocking out time in your calendar to study, exercise or spend on your goals. Get up a little earlier to stretch or meditate (or both). Have water and food prepared for the next day. Plan to Succeed.
3: Plan for your triggers
Whilst you want to plan to succeed you also need to plan for your triggers. We all have them, those people, events, places, situations that when they happen to push us off the wagon.
Ask yourself “What are the things that turn up in my life that will throw me off my game and cause me to break my promise to myself?”
These could be certain people in your life that send you reaching for the vodka tonic or the ice-cream. These could be events that when you attend them you feel misaligned with the new version of yourself. This could be a certain time of day when you always reach for the chocolate bar instead of simply getting up, taking a break and grabbing a glass of water.
Take some time to think on who, what, when, where are my triggers that when I face them I am not aligned with the new version of myself. Plan for them.
