Karl Henry: Vision statement - what is your dream?
What is your vision for the future? Where would you like to be? I don't mean some vague idea of happiness, I mean grab a pen and paper and write down exactly what you will be doing, in minute detail, unrestricted and dreaming as big as possible. This is your vision.
Now look at where you are spending your time each week. Allowing for eight hours of sleep each day, there are 112 hours left in the week. How are you spending this time? How many hours will help you to achieve your vision? Adjust your routine until you have allocated time that will make a difference to you and your dreams. Now make it visual, by sticking it up somewhere you will see on a regular basis.
The more you see it, the more your subconscious mind will help you to work towards it.
Research has shown that those who keep food diaries will lose more weight than those who don't. Simply track your food each day and review it at the end of the day. It will allow you to target danger zones and anticipate hurdles, while keeping you focused.
