Goals vs. Resolutions


New Years is right around the corner and what is the number one thing you associate New Years with?


We all have them, we all make them, we all forget them and fail. It happens every year, don’t even try to deny it.

Resolutions were made to be broken. We go into the new year all gong hoe and ready to be the best version of you! New body, new mind set, all new goals to be a different person.

I used to be just like this.

January 1st was around the corner and I was going be 20 lbs lighter, new haircut, new outlook on life and I wasn’t taking anyone’s shit anymore. Than February 1st came a long and I was still standing at the starting line with everyone else, trying to change themselves to be someone new in the new year.

What have I learned over the years?

To just be the happiest healthiest version of myself everyday of every year. You know what happened once I gave up on my “resolutions? I started growing and changing and evolving into the best version of me!

I don’t focus on my looks, I focus on all aspects of life! From personal to relationship, business and money, health and fitness, travel and trying new things. Life is about adventure. It’s is about LIVING every single day as if tomorrow you may not wake up.

If you knew, right now, in this very moment you are reading this, that today was your last day, would you waste it working out, eating lettuce in your cubicle at a job you hate with people you despise? Ya, I doubt it.

Focus on the things that matter most in life. Allow health and fitness to be a part of your life. Let people’s opinions only truly matter when you need help or want guidance. If you are unhappy in your job or relationship, change it! Financial goals…do it!

Be scared! Be unsure! That is what makes life exciting!

Our New Year’s Eve tradition was stolen by a couple that I follow and look up to a lot. I saw them do this about 3 years ago and it has stuck with us ever since! Not only does it help us stay focused all year, but it makes us work on ourselves as a whole, NOT just physical looks! You are more than welcome to tag along in this tradition, I would love to see how you make it yours!

December 31st: Dinner date to Sushi. We have kept it the same each year with Kabuki in Tempe, AZ because traditions duh! After we order, let the goal setting commence! We only use a napkin and pen from the restaurant.

**Deep down I know it’s because I always forget paper and pen, but I like how it fits with “tradition”

Titled: 20** Top 10 New Year’s “Resolutions” (goals)

2 for personal growth

2 for relationship growth (Love, Family and/or friends)

2 for business/job

2 for financial

2 for fun

You are only allowed to write down 1 at a time. Think hard about each goal, you only get two per category!

Only focusing on those aspects that will get you moving on the process! Once those actions are in place, watch the rest just happen!

Post that napkin on the fridge, on your bathroom mirror or even on the wall in front of the toilet. Put it someone you are forced to see it every day. The more you see it, the better chance you have at crossing it off your list!

Don’t make it complicated! Don’t make it unreachable!

Make this new year a chance at becoming better in all areas of life!

Make this new year a chance for you to start LIVING, not just existing every day.

Make this new year better than the last by being present, being motivated, accepting defeat and learning from failures.

New Year’s resolutions are meant to be broken. This year set goals and watch how much life becomes what you want it to be!
