Great Picture of using what you have to Succeed Boundrylessly ~

Hi folks,

A good friend shared this with me, and wanted to share it with all of you.

So here are 11 inspirational tips to help motivate you to
stick to your fat loss plan and transform your body & ENJOY Life !!!

11. Never Give Up

If you fall off the wagon, cut your losses. Don’t let it weigh on
your mind and hold you back because it’s only minor damage that can
be dealt with. The important thing is to get back on track,
immediately. Never, ever, EVER give up. I believe in you.

10. Don’t Procrastinate

Do it now. Whether you’re thinking of cleaning out the pantry or
finally starting to exercise, STOP procrastinating and DO IT now!

9. Identify Exactly What It Is You Want…

…then don’t let anything stand in your way of getting it. By
setting specific goals along with deadlines you are providing
yourself with a measuring stick.

8. Do Your Best With Everything You Have Control Over

Most people fail to control themselves, and end up only with
regrets. We trade minutes of pleasure (i.e. fast food) for days,
weeks, months, and years of regret.

Remember that the pleasure of eating lasts for only minutes, but you
inhabit your body 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for life.

Rather than trying to “out-cardio” your bad diet, you must PLAN
ahead to overcome obstacles. Otherwise, you’ll never succeed.

7. Replace Bad Habits

Everyday you will be tempted to fall back on old bad habits. To
make a lasting change in your health and appearance you must do
everything you can to resist that. Try adding a new healthy habit
each day to replace an old unhealthy habit.

6. Be Consistent With Baby Steps

The best approach is to build your life one positive step at a
time and the way to do this is by taking baby steps to improvement
each and every single day. Be a little better than yesterday.

5. Test

There are no failures, only good and bad tests.

You should always be trying something new, monitoring your body’s
response, and deciding whether or not that food or exercise belongs
in your “tool box”. Do everything you can to learn more about your
body. The more you know, the faster your success will be.

4. Social Support & Role Modeling

You can’t soar with eagles if you’re hanging around turkeys.

By hanging around others who want to lose weight, you can leverage
their knowledge, commitment, support, and success to push yourself
harder than you otherwise would be able to.

3. Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

People will do almost anything to stay in their comfort zones.

If you want to accomplish anything, get out of your comfort zone
and strive to increase order and discipline in your life.

Discipline means doing the opposite of what you feel like doing.
Setting goals and deadlines are the easy roads to discipline.

2. Plan

Planning is the ultimate key to fat loss success.

With a weekly plan of meals and workouts in place, you will be much
less likely to hit a road bump that takes you down the wrong path.
Try setting aside one day a week to map out your weekly itinerary
and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your body transforms itself.

1. Realize YOU Are In Charge of Your Success

Og Mandino once said, “I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or
succeed shall be no man’s doing but my own. I am the force; I can
clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My
choice. My responsibility. Win or lose; only I hold the key to my
destiny.”

Translation Folks- Everyone can succeed and reach their goals. It’s a
just a matter of how badly you want it.

A great friend and inspiration, Jon Benson once told me:
“If you have a strong enough WHY you’ll figure out the HOW!”

Thanks Craig for sharing ~ TRULY GREAT !!!!
