Enough is Enough: Become a Better You!

BY

ROSSANA S MOHAMMED.

As you start 2017, do you plan to improve your health, your finances, your relationships and your families? Or are you going to go through 2017 the same like last year? Are you going to do the same thing, keep the same friends who are negative, eat the same food that makes you unhealthy, keep the same job that makes you miserable and expect different results?
According to the Urban dictionary, this is insanity.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.Working a job and expecting to get rich is insanity.

It is time to wake up and take hold of your life and make the changes that you deserve. Enough is enough for you have no excuses. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, today is the day that you change that feeling.  Stop blaming your parents, your childhood, your race, your country, and take responsibility for your life.

Our greatest enemies are the ones within and nobody can stop you from achieving your dreams, only you. You are alive if you are reading this. According to Medina, yesterday, January 17, 2017, about 153, 424 died. So get up today with joy in your heart for you are alive, and become excited with what you can do with  your life today. You can become whatever you set your heart and sight on.

Tomorrow when you wake up instead of greeting the morning with, “Good God, its morning already”, say instead, “Good Morning God, it is a beautiful day and I will accomplish great things today!” Thank you for the many blessings that are coming my way today. There are 86,400 seconds in one day, what are you going to do with them?

Here are 3 ways to change your life today:

Have A Goal.

Talk to any successful man or woman, and they will tell you that they have written goals with a road map on how to achieve those goals. Write down your goals with a date with which you will acquire them. Be specific about your goals and for example, if you want to lose weight, say, I want to lose 10 lbs by June 17, 2017 and write that down. Read it every morning and night.

Take Responsibility.

Stop looking to others for their approval and reclaim your power. Listen to your inner voice as to how you are feeling. Don’t listen to the naysayers who say it cannot be done. This is your life, don’t live it for someone else. What do you want to do right now? Go out and start doing it. Don’t blame others for your situation, become the master of your own destiny by taking responsibility for it.
Enough is Enough.

Everyday do five things that will get you closer to your goals.

 

These can be five small acts but be consistent, and do them everyday to get closer and closer to your goals. At the end of the day, write down five things that you “Must” do tomorrow to get you closer to your goals. Below are 5 things to do daily if you want to become healthier or lose weight.

  1. Start exercising daily.

    Start out small and then increase your time. So exercise for 20 minutes daily and then as the weeks go by, make it 30 minutes, then eventually 60 minutes.

  2. Be conscious of what you eat.

    Keep a food journal and record daily how much you eat as this will help you control how much calories you are eating. Also having it in writing will remind you when last you ate. Studies have shown that people who have a food journal lost twice as much weight as those who did not have one.

  3. Start by eating smaller amounts of desserts.

    Don’t go cold turkey for the more you deprive yourself the more you are going to want it. So enjoy that chocolate cake but just have a sliver of it.

  4. Eat more fruits and vegetables.

    Instead of loading up your desks with candy and cookies, keep cut up vegetables fruits, and munch on those.

  5. Move whilst you watch TV.

    During commercial, move around. Do some pull ups, jumping jacks, run up and down a stairs, dance or lift some weights.

2017 is a new beginning, seize the year, and the day. Reach for your goals and dreams, and stay in the game of life. 153, 424 people did not make it yesterday. Reach out to Families411 in our comment section and let us know how you are going to make your dream a reality.

Enough is Enough! Reclaim 2017.
