Happy New Year! Before you move forward to set new resolu­tions for 2020, let’s take a mo­ment to look back and reflect on your results in 2019.

Did you accomplish your goals this past year? (yes or no)

If “no” then answer these five questions for insight into your failure.

  1. Were your goals clearly written down and reviewed reg­ularly?

If you’re ambiguous about what you are setting off to achieve then it will never cul­minate in anything concrete. By writing down your goals in specific, clear terms and review­ing them regularly, you’ll be on track to achieve huge things in 2020.

  1. Did you use the SMART System for defining your goals?

SMART Is an acronym for set­ting achievable goals. It stands for Specific, Measurable, Attain­able, Realistic and Timebound. Don’t skip over this step – set­ting SMART goals is the dif­ference between achieving your dreams and having yet another year slide by without any mea­surable results to show for it. Use the SMART filter for set­ting goals — and reflect on and review your results with regu­larity.

  1. Did your goals align with your values?

If your goal was to lose weight and to finally achieve a lean, fit, healthy body then why did you continue to glorify greasy, un­healthy food? Why did you look at exercise as a punishment to be avoided? Your value system must line up with your goals. In fitness this means having a posi­tive attitude about exercise and healthy eating.

  1. Did you create accountabil­ity around your goals?

Who did you tell about your goal to finally lose the weight and get fit? If you kept it to yourself then you missed out on a huge opportunity for account­ability and support. This support is what you lean on through the tough times when jumping off the wagon seems like the only option.

Take a moment to reflect on the answers to these questions above before answering the next question.

  1. What was the root cause of your failure?

Take ownership of why you did not reach the results you wanted and let’s move forward and change that in 2020. Your results are a product of small ef­forts, every day. Start by walk­ing through the doors of NXPT and let’s make 2020 the year you get results you earned!
