I’m sure that you’ve been working hard at following through with your fat loss goals this week. It’s time to recognize your efforts and achievements by celebrating even the smallest of victories.
This is something that we will be doing every Sunday here at the Unstoppable Fat Loss blog and I believe it’s one of the key ingredients of a successful fat loss program, which is often over looked and neglected.
Celebrating your small victories often is one of the best strategies for overcoming self doubt when you experience a setback or get slightly off track. Sure you may have had a bad day of eating, but look at all the incredible accomplishments that you experienced throughout the week.
Learn from the setback. Celebrate the fact that you are more prepared to handle this obstacle in the future. Continue your journey of self growth.
I chose this picture because I believe it’s a very suitable representation of a typical fat loss journey. There is no straight path for achieving your goals. Even when it may appear that you are ‘off track’ you are actually still “ON TRACK”.
Even though you may face obstacles that you have to go around and over, you can still reach your final destination. I believe that it’s these “DETOURS” that make this lifelong journey worth while.
An analogy would be a recent trip that Angie and I went on. We could have easily taken the straight forward route to our vacation spot and arrive there within 3 hours, but instead we decided to take the back roads and pass through small towns that we had heard of yet never took the time to pass through.
Although this added about 6 hours to our trip it was the most memorable and magical time spent during our vacation and now we have new destinations that we would love to visit in the future.
One thing that amazes me is how you can focus a great deal of attention on what you’ve done wrong, how you always seem to sabotage yourself, and how you’ll never achieve the body that you desire… yet you spend very little time acknowledging your achievements.
This is all about to change for you. The Unstoppable Fat Loss blog is now a place where you can voice your successes and give them room to flourish. Bring life to your journey.
I guarantee that your successes greatly outweigh your setbacks. It’s time to prove to yourself just how great you’ve been doing.
I’ll begin by celebrating my small victories and I look forward to sharing in your celebration in the comment box below.
Scott’s Small Victories This Week:
Well that certainly felt great. I really did have an awesome week now that I look back on my achievements.
Now it’s time for you to set aside some well deserved time to celebrate your victories and share them with us here. After you share your victories let me know how you feel afterward.
What a great way to wrap up the week and look forward to the incredible week ahead of us.
Keeping It Real,
