Congratulations, It’s hard to believe that we’re already into week 4 of our 52 week Accountability Challenge. How did you make out in week 3?

Once again, I encourage you to take 10 minutes to review your Progress from the past week.

What is the goal(s) that I am committed to achieving over the next 52 weeks?

It is ok to have several goals on the go, but I recommend that you focus on no more than two major goals: one health & fitness related, and one personal growth goal (increasing your income, business promotion, improving a relationship, etc).

  • What did I say I was going to do this past week?
  • What did I actually do?
  •  How do I feel about it? Briefly describe your victories or challenges from the past week. If you made progress, now is the time to give yourself a big pat on the back If you didn’t make any progress, don’t beat yourself up about it, but be honest in describing the Resistance that got in the way. Recommit to your goal, and move forward. FIDO (Forget it, drive on). 

Week 4 Challenge: The Power of Habits: 

Are your habits helping you or hurting you?

In order to make significant and lasting improvements in our life, including achieving the goals that we are working on, we really only need to change two things

How we think and how we act. Sounds simple enough doesn’t it. Unfortunately simple is not always easy. Our habits are the ways of thinking and acting that we repeat on a consistent basis, until they become “well”, habits. Our habits can help us if they lead us forward in a productive fashion, and are performance enhancing, but they also often hurt, or hold us back when they are non-productive.

  • 1. Take ten minutes to list out all of your own current HABITS, as they relate to your major goal(s) be they helpful in nature or hurtful. Don’t judge them just try to objectively list them:
  • Eating potato chips late at night is a habit that might be considered detrimental to achieving peak physical condition. It is also by the way, one of my own bad habits, which I am committed to changing.
  • Exercising 5-6 days per week for a minimum of 20 minutes on the other hand is a positive habit, which is helpful to achieving peak physical condition.
  •  2. Commit to taking action on one positive and one negative habit this week.
  •  Do less of one thing that is holding you back from reaching your goal. That could mean forgoing your morning muffin in favour of a delicious apple.  
  •  Do more of one thing that will move you closer to your goal. It could be listening to the affirmation or rapid manifestation audios that you received in week one on a daily basis.
  •  3. Just Do It;  Commit to doing the exercises. No excuses, no alibis!
