On my site you will find several techniques that you can use to help yourself to reach (and maintain) your weight loss and fitness goals. Perhaps you have tried one or two already, or perhaps you have been afraid to try because you think you might fail.

Every time that you fail means that you are one step closer to success. Failure means that you are taking action and doing in order to achieve your goals. While I do believe in visualization, affirmations, and positive thinking, these tools are meant to lead to physical action of some kind so that you can move forward in your life. These actions can take the form of swearing off all fast food, implementing a regular walking schedule, or learning more about nutrition, just to name a few.

If you are taking action and failing left and right, this means that you are getting closer and closer to success. Don’t ever stop doing because it is possible that either you haven’t found what works for you yet, or you have not discovered the true root of your issue, i.e.: food addiction, depression, or negative, unconscious beliefs, just to name a few.

No matter how often you fail, never ever give up on yourself.

May these thoughts motivate you to take action today in even a small way (i.e.: commit to drinking 2 glasses of pure water to replace 2 sodas). Small changes can be the start of what can build up to lasting, lifestyle changes, even if you fail and begin again along the way.

Every Failure Is A Step Closer To Success

People who try to do something and fail
are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.
Experiencing failure is inevitable on your journey to be successful.
Every defeat is merely an installment to victory.

You’ll find that the number of times you succeed is in direct
to the number of times you fail and keep trying.
You won’t be judged by the number of times you fail,
but by the number of times you succeed.

Failure is nothing but education,
nothing but the first step to something better.

You can’t be a winner and be afraid to lose.
