Your Road to Success

Effort
Achievement
Achievement

One of the quickest, easiest ways to get from where we are to where we want to be, be it a destination on a map or a destination in life, is to make a plan.

Hopefully, you are preparing to travel down the road to a better life  to a more positive life  a life that encompasses the a winner’s attitude. Changing your outlook on life is not an easy task to undertake.

Negativity is like a poison, and it may take a while for it to get entirely out of your system. You’ll find that when you get to that proverbial fork in the road, it may prove a challenge to make the right choice. It’s always easier to stick with what we know and to fall back to our old ways of thinking.

Negativity is like any other bad habit, be it smoking, drinking, or eating too much. Your best approach is to take it one day at a time. If you fall off the wagon, don’t throw all of your efforts out the window. Take a deep breath and try again. Just because you lost one battle, certainly doesn’t mean that you’ve lost the war.

Consider this example, people who have successfully lost weight and have kept it off will tell you that their success required them to change the way they look at food. Now, they eat to live not live to eat. They don’t consider themselves to be on a diet. They’ve simply changed the way that they think about their food.

Rather than eating because they are bored, depressed or because they want to celebrate an event or an achievement, they find healthier activities to fill their time, and to reward them for a job well done. They also work to build a support group filled with friends and family who can help them in their weak moments.

In addition, when they hit a weight loss plateau or regain back a pound or two, they don’t give up the fight. They summon up their resources, beef up their exercise routine, reevaluate the way that they’ve been eating, and continue on.

That’s the way to win the war.

If you’re trying to overcome your negative attitude, your first step is to map out a road to success. Without a plan, your road to success may become a dead-end street.

By strategizing how you plan to become a positive person with a winner’s attitude, you’ll be able to make your trip successfully. And, should you get sidetracked along the way, you’ll be able to look upon your plan to motivate you back on the right track.

  1. Having a plan is better than no plan at all. Making it a lifestyle is very important. I think sometimes we try to do too many things in one go at one time and that is a sure recipe for failure. Making the small changes daily, weekly or monthly will help implement a plan and will help you learn if the plan is on track or requires a new direction. I am working on reinventing myself SIr constantly, that was one of 4 critical steps that you spoke about that they discovered from people who were able to heal themselves. I want people to run into me 5 years from now and to not know who i am because i have improved so much! Thank you for this article.
