Here are some motivational questions straight from The Biggest Loser - choices that I need to really think about when I'm making decisions.
How is this choice going to get me closer to my goal?
What are your goals?
Run a marathon?
Save more money?
Exercise more in the morning?
Be a better spouse/partner?
Go back to school?
Eat less at night?
Be a better friend?
Get a promotion at work?
How are your choices getting you closer to reaching them?
Are you sticking to your training program when it’d be easier to skip a couple of days?
Are you saying no to eating that Snickers bar when you know it’s sabotaging your weight loss efforts?
Are you putting an extra $100 into savings instead of buying that outfit you don’t really need?
Are you getting out of bed instead of hitting the snooze button every morning?
Are you compromising more and being stubborn less?
Are you willing to give up your free time to learn a new skill/trade/profession that you love and will make you happier in the long run?
Are you “closing” the kitchen after dinner and/or having one planned nightly snack?
Are you listening more and talking less?
Are you staying late to help get a big project done?
Are you giving your life to God knowing that He will provide?
We are solely responsible and reap the consequences, both good and bad, for each and every decision we make.
Are your choices helping or hindering you from achieving your goals?
