This blog post covers how to become more intentional when achieving your goals and why relying on diet and exercise alone as a weight loss strategy doesn’t work for long term maintenance. 

Do you have a plan for your growth and achieving your goals? Or are you leaving it to chance and just hoping for the best?

I take it you have weight loss goals or goals to learn how to maintain your results, and that’s why you’re reading this right now.

When it comes to your weight loss, maybe you have a strategy that 

consist’s of;

  • eating cleaner
  • cutting carbs
  • going paleo
  • removing gluten and sugar all together
  • restricting your calorie intake by a lot
  • Coupled with exercising more.

Whatever your plan is for weight loss and your goals you’re probably fumbling on the same thing you have tried many times before. And the truth is you don’t have a sound plan to achieve your goals, and you’re leaving your results up to chance and hope. 

Forget everything you know; nutrition is a small piece of the puzzle what you need to focus on first is;

  • Get a clear vision of what it is you want to achieve.
  • Create a new identity, and work on your identity-based habits. 
  • Establish your values
  • Work on your habits 
  • Work on your mindset & personal growth

The person that got you to where you are now will not get you towards where you want to be and achieving your goals unless you work on building the person who is capable of doing so.  

You must be deliberate about your growth!

Admitting that you don’t have a plan may be challenging at first, but it will open the door (if you choose to let it) to achieving your results.

Your current “strategy” of work hard, eat cleaner and move more, in theory, Yes! Amazing! In reality, this approach will probably not work long term until you become deliberate about your weight loss goals and how you are going to get there.

On your weight loss journey, it’s essential to think below the surface and develop self-awareness. You must know yourself to grow your self and accept who you are before you can start building.


Area’s for growth improvement.

Below are 8 areas that could be holding back from achieving your results.

Now you may have an idea of some areas of growth that you may have gaps ins, pick which ones apply to you and work on making improvements in these areas to start achieving your goals.

If you’re serious about achieving your goals and you’re currently relying on hope and chance its time to make the switch to becoming deliberate with your system.

Making the switch from hope to intention

  • Ask yourself the big questions!
    • Where do I want to be and what do I want to achieve.
    • What direction do I want to take?
    • What is the farthest you can imagine going?
  • Do it now!!
    • Not later, not when, NOW!
  • Face your fears.
    • Fears never go away. For anybody!
      • Fear of failure
      • Fear of making mistakes
      • Fear of judgement
      • Fear of trading security for the unknown
      • Fear that success will alienate peers
  • Focus on the process, not the outcome.
  • Be patient!
    • Change and results take time

What are your areas of growth that you can improve? Pick the ones that apply to you and create a strategy of how you are going to work on becoming deliberate with your development.
