New Year’s resolutions are an annual tradition for millions of people and the odds are good that you’ve made and broken resolutions several times. You CAN succeed with your resolutions and it may be easier than you think.

Sample Resolutions

Some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are:

  • I want to lose weight.
  • I will exercise more.
  • I will eat healthier.

The problem with each of the above is that there is no set goal and no action plan on how to achieve weight loss, fitness, increased earnings or a better relationship. If they were phrased like:

  • I will lose 10 pounds in the next 30 days and 50 pounds this year.
  • I will take a 30 minute walk 3 times a week and lift weights for 30 minutes a session 3 times a week this year.
  • I will include one additional vegetable or salad in my daily meals OR I will replace 1 fast food meal per week with a soup and salad bar meal.

The difference between the first list and the second is the ability to define the goal and set an action plan so success can be achieved.

It’s much easier to see that the second set of resolutions have clearly defined goals. The person that says they’re going to lose 10 pounds in 30 days can measure their progress. Ten pounds breaks down to an average weight loss of 2.5 pounds per week and you can both achieve this goal AND measure your progress.

When you can measure your progress, you can see your success or lack of success in anything and this makes it easier to stay on track.

Will you slip back into your old habits? Absolutely! The trick is to acknowledge that you’ll stay on track only about 80 percent of the time, at most. Simply get yourself back on track and continue without berating yourself for straying.

You are human and you are trying to correct bad habits that have been part of you for months, if not years, so plan for success and work towards it regardless of the resolution or obstacles.

Self help and self improvement programs are tried by many people and unfortunately too many people fail AND it is usually NOT their fault.

Your brain is an amazingly complex organic computer that has its initial programming done by your DNA. Who you’ve become has been mostly determined by all of the programming that has been added since birth.

Everything you’ve been exposed to has been recorded by your brain even if you cannot recall it. All of your senses record all of the time AND the more you are exposed to any sight, sound, smell or touch the more that is imprinted on your mind.

You first learned to speak by first listening to everyone around you talking and you then tried to mimic them. The more you practiced talking the better you got at it.

When you got to grade school and first started to learn how to write, you probably had to practice writing each letter starting with them as very big letters. As you got better at writing, you were able to make them smaller, faster, smoother and more consistently.

I’m willing to bet that you eventually reached a point where you could pick up a pen or pencil and write what you wanted without consciously thinking about the act of writing.

This level of competence means your subconscious mind thinks about the mechanics of writing while your conscious mind deals with the content you are writing.

You can reach this level of competence in almost anything with enough practice on the fundamentals.

Your mind CANNOT distinguish between good, bad, real or imagined.

Because your mind doesn’t have the ability to make these distinctions, you can trick it into believing something you imagine often enough should be your reality and it will help you make it happen.

We all have habits in our lives that we want to break and it IS possible but only if done the right way.

You probably acquired the habit through repetition and you will need repetition to get rid of the habit.

Many self help programs give you positive affirmations that are SUPPOSED to help you build new habits BUT they do NOT include affirmations where you repeatedly give your mind permission to release the bad habit.

I firmly believe you must do both AND engage multiple senses so the desired habit becomes your new reality faster. As you read your affirmations, write your affirmations and listen to them regularly, they will become imprinted on your subconscious mind quicker.

On average, something you do consistently each day starts to become a habit in 28-30 days. When you are trying to release a bad habit and instill a new one with the aide of a self help program, the process may take much longer because the old habit may have been part of your life for years.

Even with the right mindset, actions and self help program, you MUST be consistent and persistent in your attempt to improve yourself.

I’ve used several self help programs with no success and I’m sure you have too BUT I’ve found the programs at Think Right Now do work. Good luck in your quest for a better you and I sincerely hope you find the self help program that fits your needs.

You may wonder about Think Right Now products and whether they really work. I can say that at least one DOES work even when directions aren’t exactly followed.

The product I’m talking about is the I Am Healed NOW CD by Think Right Now. I received this CD as a Christmas gift this last December. I made a back up copy of the CD and started playing it 24/7.

The directions recommend reading the affirmations at least once a day AND physically writing out the 10-15 you agree with the most but I’m not physically able to write out the affirmations and I seldom take the time to open the file and read the affirmations.

I wanted this product in the hopes that it would help with some of the health issues I have as a paralyzed person that’s confined to bed.

I’ve had a recurring bed sore in one my coccyx for 37 years and it has been open this last time for 9 years and was about 9cm deep. Wound care specialists repeatedly told me there was nothing that could be done that would result in a permanent healing. Another that that I have has been consistently open and sometimes bone deep for nine years. This wound is on my left shin and wound care specialists also stated nothing could be done for it.

The recommended treatment for the leg wound was salt packs when bone deep otherwise just antibiotic salve and a Telfa covering when the bone wasn’t exposed. This sore was 3 inches long and about an inch wide.

Since I started using the I Am Healed NOW CD, the sore on my leg has completely healed over and remained closed for a month AND the sore in my coccyx is now 6cm in depth and slightly narrower at the surface.

The ONLY thing that was changed was the addition of the I Am Healed NOW CD to my routine.

I’ve also seen improvements in other skin problems, I don’t crave sweets as much as I did, I’m willing to leave food on my plate when the servings I’m given are too large and other minor health related items that the CD’s affirmations address. Proven result by altering my thinking is the best endorsement I can give this product and I heartily urge you to read the testimonials associated with EVERY product offing from Think Right Now.

Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘You are what you eat.’? It is a very true statement because what you put in your mouth goes a long way towards determining your health. What you think is just as important especially when you are ill and trying to heal.

I’ll bet you’ve seen a lot of people that are consistently talking about their illnesses like they are a badge of honor. You might hear in depth discussions about the disease, the medication being taken, the tests that were run, and a variety of other topics.

What too many people don’t realize is that your mind cannot distinguish between reality and imagination. Because your mind cannot make this distinction, it works to make your reality what you talk and think about most.

This means that everyone that focuses most on their illness or disease is telling their minds they want to be ill or have that disease. Constantly feeding your mind the right affirmations that you are healthy and healing will go a long way towards making that your reality.

If you need proof of this, you need to look at cancer patients. Almost everyone that sees cancer as a death sentence will not beat their cancer even with chemotherapy or other treatments. Those that have the mindset that they will beat their cancer either do or they live longer with a higher quality of life.

You can use your mind to heal, to improve your life or to transform it in many different ways so it is more enjoyable for you and your loved ones. I invite you to register for your free ‘life transformation kit’ so you can see for yourself how powerful of a tool your mind is and how you can harness its power. You may have trouble accepting the idea that your mind can help you improve just about every aspect of your life but I can tell you it has made a big difference in mine. The only thing you have to lose by checking out the ‘life transformation kit’ is a few minutes of your busy life BUT you may gain MUCH more just by looking.

Nutrisystems has been around a long time and they have helped many with short term weight loss. This article discusses using them for permanent loss.

Do you need Nutri System to lose weight? Absolutely Not!

You DO need:

  • To know how many calories you are consuming each day, when they are consumed and what foods you are eating in what quantities. (Reducing your daily caloric intake by more than 20% puts your body in starvation mode so you are burning muscle instead of losing fat.)

  • To know WHY you are over eating. Many people eat as a coping mechanism when they are sad, depressed, stressed or afraid.

  • To know how to reprogram your mind. Losing weight and keeping it off requires a change in your lifestyle and this requires changing your mindset and habits.

  • To understand nutrition. You cannot give your body what it needs to stay healthy without understanding nutrition.

  • To know how to exercise, when to exercise, what exercises are best for you and WHY exercising is so important to your fat loss program.

  • A support group that can help you stay focused without judging you. (Family and friends are seldom good as a support group because they usually won’t be honest when you mess up.)

If you already have everything on the above list, you don’t really need nutrisystems or any other weight loss (fat loss) program. If you lack knowledge in any of these areas, I recommend you give nutrisystems advanced a very serious look because their prepackaged meals can help you with portion control and eating 5-6 times a day so you never feel hungry while you are both losing weight and learning how to keep it off with proper nutrition and exercise.

Wouldn’t it be nice to permanently cross weight loss off your to do list with the help of nutrisystems?
