Stop Talking and Start Doing: Do What You Intend to Do

Posted by on September 6th, 2012 with 4 Comments

Let me ask you a question, how many times have you started and stopped an exercise and diet program??   How many times have you told yourself this is it… “I am getting back on track” But you just can’t seem to stop the pity party of having absolutely no willpower?  I know exactly what you might be going through, believe me when I tell you that I am speaking from experience.  In 2003, I lost 50 pounds and in 2006 20 pounds found its way back to my butt, hips and thighs. Yes, that was me, I kept talking about wanting to live a fabulous diet free lifestyle without the obsessions but my actions didn’t support my desires.  It wasn’t until I decided to stop playing the victim to “diet programs don’t work” and turned the responsibility on myself to tackle the reasons that kept me stuck, was I able to start putting into action what I wanted!

Here is the deal throughout your life you probably intended to do a lot of things.  You might have wanted to lose those pesky pounds that you keep regaining, pursue a career you are passionate about, purchase a home or change your unhealthy habits.  But everyday life just kept intervening and preventing you from doing what you’d always thought you would do.

And here you are four months until a brand New year— still wishing you can accomplish some of the goals and desires you established when the clock stuck midnight on January 1, 2012.  I'm pretty sure from time to time during the years, you had conversations with yourself that started out like this, “One of the things I’ve always wanted to do when I lost weight was……”,  “If only I had the willpower I would… “  OR "If only I was motivated to exercise I would……"

Here is the million dollar question, how can you stop talking and start doing what you intend to do in the beginning of the yea? What does it take to follow through with your intentions?  Who do you need to become to accomplish your goals?

Listed below are powerful action steps to help inspire you to begin fulfilling your life’s dreams, it is never to let for you to show up and show out:

1.      Pick your top 3 juicy desires at the current time (not in the future but right now) Limiting the goals you plan to work on will help you succeed. Select those that are the most important for you.

2.      Stay focused on those 3 juicy goals and don’t allow anything to get in the way of accomplishing them. When you are focus, you will keep those goals on your mind every single day. You might say you’ll eat, sleep, and drink with those few goals.

3.      Break each goal up into “chunks.” Divide it up into smaller mini-goals and enjoy one success after another as you attain these smaller goals and get closer to achieving your end goal. Breaking up each goal into do-able chunks will galvanize you to get started working toward the goal one bit at a time.

4.      Vow to do something that moves you closer toward each of your 3 juicy goals every single day. For example, rather than spend 2 hours playing on the internet, spend one of those hours working towards one of your mini-goals.

5.      Show flexibility. If focusing on 3 of your desires at once is too difficult for you, then choose just one at a time and work on it until you accomplish the goal. Also, be willing to switch from moving one goal ahead to working on another if you get stuck.

6.      Change your language. Rather than continuing to state you “always wanted to do” something, state what you’ve done recently to work toward accomplishing your goal. Use your discussions and language to remind yourself and others of what your intentions are. Now your talk and your actions are both consistent with attaining your goal.

Won’t it be wonderful when you start avidly focusing on your desires and actively working to achieve your goals? You have, right now, within your reach, the power to stop talking and start doing whatever’s necessary to translate your intentions into actions. You can live the life you’ve yearned to live and achieve your dreams. Begin today to do what you intend to do.
