The holiday season is my favorite time of the year, because I get to see family and friends I haven’t seen for a long while. We get to share experiences, stories, ambitions, and goals. I mean, how awesome is it when relatives bring out dishes you’ve been waiting all year to finally get your hands on, right?
This season, at least for Puerto Ricans anyway, starts in November, and doesn’t end until Three Kings Day, January 6th – that’s two and a half months of pies, cakes, different dishes, and seasonal drinks. By the time the ride comes to an end, if you aren’t careful, you can easily put on twenty pounds – easily! I know, I’ve seen people do it right before my eyes!
Sound familiar? Ever find yourself in this situation feeling this way? For some people this is a yearly occurrence. What follows is the annual new years resolution; or what I call the “confessions.” New Years resolutions are usually made from a place of high emotion with little, to virtually no real, commitment behind it.
Essentially, these resolutions are usually nothing more than confessions of what you feel you’re weak in, or need to improve on. There is nothing wrong with that because we all need to first acknowledge where we are before we can get to where we want to go. However, it’s the questions people choose to ask themselves that cause them to start off the year on the wrong path, and they end up never rebounding from that bad start.
Looking For The Best Ways To Burn Fat?
For example, someone who is looking to lose weight might ask himself, or herself, a question like, “What are the best ways to burn fat?” Seems like a valid question, right? And you get immediate feedback the question is valid because when you search it online, thousands of results pop up, don’t they?
Have you ever heard the saying, “when you become lost in the woods, you end up not seeing the forest for the trees?” I’m sure I butchered it while paraphrasing it here, but it means you aren’t able to see the big picture. You get stuck on details that may not matter.
People start off the year, if they ask themselves that question, looking for a quick fix to lose weight during the first quarter of the new year. The reason I say that is because when you focus all your attention on something like, “the best ways to burn fat,” you don’t ask yourself the key question, which when it’s answered will form the foundation of everything you do for the rest of the year, and that question is, “what exactly am I trying to accomplish?”
What is your overall mission or objective? Why are you trying to achieve this particular outcome? Is your strategy attainable and sustainable; or just one and not the other? The more reasons we attach to accomplishing something, and the clearer we get on what it is we are looking to do, then, and only then, will our likelihood of achieving it increase.
Think of yourself as a special forces commander for just a moment. Imagine meeting up with your team,and getting dropped off at the starting place of your mission; and as the helicopter flies off one of your guys looks at you and asks, “Ok chief, what’s the plan?” You stare back at your team with a confused look and say, “I have no idea, I thought headquarters gave you the plans. You know what? Forget it, let’s just wing it and see what happens”.
