The greatest kept secret to achievement is also the most obvious: immediate action.
I started my final weight loss journey in November 2010 just a couple of weeks before the start of the holiday season with all its gatherings and opportunities for stuffing my face.
I could have told myself to wait for the perfect time but I’d been waiting for the perfect time my whole life and it never showed up.
I didn’t know exactly what to eat so I could have waited to research the perfect diet or system. But I couldn’t find it so I just started with a small tweak: no sugar.
What was my secret? I focused on the three habits that would produce the greatest results. I wasn’t perfect but I was moving. Sometimes the journey is two step forwards and one step back but slow progress is still progress.
Waiting is almost never the right choice. Starting small almost always is.
What is one thing you can change today? Be like that snowball rolling down the hill that becomes an avalanche.
Start small. End strong. You’ve got this.
