Dr. Phil has long helped people make any variety of changes in their lives, especially health-related changes. He brings much-needed truth and reality to the struggle of losing weight. He offered some wise advice for accomplishing these changes in your life…
“It is very clear that we are creatures of habit. We get a life momentum flowing just like a river, and rerouting a river is a big job. If you’re going to make changes in your life, it requires support from those around you and a commitment to do what you want until it comes to be. It isn’t a matter of doing it for a few days or a few weeks, it’s about doing it until you get what you want.
“The key is to go from awareness and consciousness to putting what you want on project status. Make it a project. Think about it. If you were just aware that you wanted the garage to be painted, it wouldn’t get painted. But, if you make it a project with a deadline, it will get done. If you want change, make it project status.”
The new year is always a great time for re-focusing your energy and efforts to make your desires a reality. If improving your health is important to you, don’t just think about it or hope for it. Put it on “project status,” with a deadline for making it happen!
