The Very First Step To Fitness Success by Elliott Hulse
We know that we need to lose weight and... we know
that joining a gym was a good choice. But, what's next.
Where are you going? What will it look like when you
get there? How will you know if you're there or not if
you're not sure where you are going?
The first thing you need to know about goal setting is
that you must be as specific as possible. "I want to
drop a few pounds" is not going to cut it. You will want
to sound more like "I will lose 20 pound, and weigh 125 lbs.
in the next 8 months".
Notice that the second goal was stated in a positive,

So, it should be obvious that one of your 10 goals
should be "I communicate openly and lovingly with
Write these 10 goals in your notebook every day.
You will be repeating the same goals on a daily basis.
This will activate your subconscious mind to go to
work for you. When you activate your subconscious
mind on a daily basis with positive present-tense goals
you will bring those things which you desire into your
life much faster than someone who is simply wishing
for things to get better.
An old acronym that you may be familiar with is, to
make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T - Specific -
Measurable - Achievable - Realistic - Timely.
Well, there you have it... setting goals
is the first thing that you must do for fast fitness
