I would like to share with you one of my favorite quotes about motivation. “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” ~ Zig Ziglar
We have to control what we can, cope with what we can’t and concentrate on what’s important. Focus is the key. Focus on the motivation you have every single day.
We had a great webinar last week with Head Chef Valerie Cogwell. We also have a great webinar tonight at 8:00 pm with Brower & Brower about a topic that I am truly passionate about… Estate Planning!

I spend a lot of time talking about what it’s like to be working towards your fat loss goal, with your perfect body somewhere off in the distance.
Today I’m going to switch perspectives and turn the focus onto how it feels to BE at your ideal weight.
In addition to getting you pumped up and motivated to work even more diligently towards your goal, studies have shown that those who spend time visualizing the accomplishment of their goal have a higher success rate in actually getting there.

I’m not strong enough.”
