Focus on the Standing Ovation

I am always intrigued by people who have losing weight as one of the acts they want to perform in the new year, partially because it is normally one of my goals as well. What I have found, however, is that when I focus on the loss side of the equation, I feel defeated. Who wants to lose anything? What helps me stay motivated is focusing on the things I will gain by choosing a healthier eating plan:

  • Being able to out distance my 12 year old daughter in running.
  • Comfortably sitting on the floor with my 4 year old, playing one of her favorite games.
  • Having more sustained energy for my work day and when making presentations.

What about you? What standing ovations will you gain by finding success with your new act?
