8 Questions You Should Ask Yourself

Summer is coming and it’s good to reflect on where you’ve been and where you are going as 2023 moves forward.

Are you meeting your goals?
Do you have more goals to achieve this year?
Do you even have goals?

Goals are hard to achieve when you don’t have any and getting results is even harder. The alternative is going through the motions each day waiting for something to happen. The bad news is you may be waiting for a long time.

Start with what you want to accomplish. It can be anything, it’s yours. Make it something small and achievable. Long term goals can be intimidating and seem out of reach. Success with a smaller goal that works towards a larger goal offers incentive to keep going. Don’t concern yourself with what weights other people can lift, their weight loss success or the fancy exercises they do in their workouts. It doesn’t matter. Your goals are yours and they are affected by the things that YOU do.

Your goals may be focused on weight loss, getting stronger or improving your overall health.

8 Questions you should ask yourself

What are you doing that contributes to your success?
What are you doing that is not?
How much focus do you put on your nutrition?
If you don’t know where to start, have you asked for help?
Are you getting 7+ hours of quality sleep each night?
How much water are you drinking each day?
How are you reducing stress?
What are you doing for recovery?

Start by doing the little things right and start small. Don’t try to fix everything at one time, that’s too much pressure. Be aware of what you want to achieve. This is the only logical first step. From there, you can develop an action plan for how to approach and accomplish your goals. If it feels overwhelming, ask for help. It’s closer than you think.
