Each day dawns fresh and new, unmarred by errors, slips, or gaffes. For some reason, however, we tend to bring our past failures and worries with us into the landscape of each new day. Why must we always trip over the stone that's behind us?
Every resolution begins with good intentions. The problem is that there is so much information available to us that we've become a society of pseudo-experts. If I'm sick, for example, I can go online, read a couple of articles, and attempt to diagnose and treat myself. If it were that simple, of course, doctors wouldn’t have to spend so many years in medical school.
Unfortunately, that’s how many of us approach lifestyle changes. We set a goal, read a few articles, and away we go. We may be more educated than we were before, but have we really learned enough to reach our destination?
Often, we learn just enough to set us back.
If you want to change, get serious about your goals. If you want to learn to dance, find someone who has built a career in dance. If you want to play piano, sign up for lessons with an experienced teacher. If you want to be fitter, faster, healthier—or all of the above—then seek out guidance from professional coaches and fitness experts.
