Set your­self three goals

The Wokingham Paper - - HEALTH - Per­sonal fit­ness with Chris Hunt

NOR­MAL­ITY should now be get­ting closer am I right? Christ­mas may have been and gone but the pre­sents should still be com­ing your way my friend. What pre­sents could I be talk­ing about then? The pre­sents of life and the present that is the knowl­edge that you are go­ing to do some­thing spe­cial this year.

I hon­estly be­lieve that when you put your mind to some­thing and ded­i­cate some time to do­ing it then you will achieve it. Over the last five or so years since I left the Royal Marines I have achieved some amaz­ing things in my life. I have also had the awe­some op­por­tu­nity to help fa­cil­i­tate some amaz­ing achieve­ments with my clients too.

Over the Christ­mas pe­riod, I al­ways take stock of what I have achieved in the last 12 months and then aim to im­prove var­i­ous as­pects for the next 12 months. You can­not al­ways ex­cel at every­thing in your life as there needs to be com­pro­mise at some­times, but I do be­lieve that you can, and you should al­ways have three goals at any one point.

What three goals could you set right now to sky rocket your mind, your body and your life?

How could you im­prove your fit­ness right now? Are you do­ing enough train­ing cur­rently to meet your goals? When you look in the mir­ror, what is look­ing back at you? Have you pre­vi­ously set a tar­get and still want to achieve it? Is there a dream body you have for your­self and if so, what is stop­ping you from achiev­ing it?

Do you wake up and look for­ward to the day on a Mon­day morn­ing? How is your mo­ti­va­tion cur­rently? Could you imag­ine your­self be­ing any hap­pier right now? If you could, what needs to hap­pen to make that a re­al­ity?

When you were younger, and you imag­ined life grow­ing up; what at that age did you think you would be do­ing? Does your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion live up to those thoughts from when you were younger? Could your life be any bet­ter in any way right now?

Could a sim­ple change or fo­cus on your part cause ex­po­nen­tial im­prove­ment in your qual­ity of life start­ing to­day?

Just be­fore Christ­mas, my part­ner and I found out we will be hav­ing an­other child and we will be hav­ing our fourth child in late June, early July.

We al­ready have three gor­geous daugh­ters, Sum­mer, Si­enna and Sofia and we are re­ally ex­cited to be hav­ing an­other child.

My wife thinks it will be a boy this time, but I have that feel­ing that I am go­ing to be even more out­num­bered and it will be an­other girl.

Lit­er­ally, we could not be more ex­cited right now but then I am go­ing to open up to you to­day… this scares me too.

An­other child along­side our cur­rent work and fam­ily com­mit­ments, my masters be­ing cur­rently in full flow, hav­ing to buy a larger car, hol­i­days get­ting more ex­pen­sive, cur­rent chil­dren get­ting older and get­ting more de­mand­ing…the list goes on! But it’s all good, change is good and life chang­ing mo­ments like these should be em­braced.

I chal­lenge you now to do some­thing lifechang­ing!

I chal­lenge you now to do some­thing that scares you!

I chal­lenge you now to get out of your com­fort zone!

I chal­lenge you to in­ves­ti­gate do­ing some­thing that gets your heart rate rac­ing up­wards.

2019 is go­ing to be one amaz­ing year yet again for our fam­ily and I re­ally want it to be re­ally spe­cial and ex­cit­ing for you too. There could be a mil­lion things you could do start­ing to­day to get out of your com­fort zone and do some­thing dif­fer­ent but that has to work for you and be right for you.

As al­ways, the best thing you can do is to start ask­ing ques­tions and re­ally get deep about your life and what you want from it.

I en­cour­age my clients to take 20 min­utes and do some form of in­ner work such as med­i­ta­tion. Tak­ing the time to just re­lax and zone out in this in­for­ma­tion rich era we live in can be amaz­ing.

Ideas and thoughts will come in and out of your aware­ness and then it’s just a case of wait­ing for some­thing in­spi­ra­tional to come into the sub­con­scious which will then come into your con­scious aware­ness… it’s pretty amaz­ing ac­tu­ally.

What do you want to achieve in your life? What do you want in your life that you do not cur­rently have?

What needs to hap­pen to make that one thing hap­pen?

What small step could you take to­day to move you to­wards achiev­ing that goal we set above?

Let’s make 2019 an uber achiev­ing year. To­gether I am sure we can achieve some­thing very spe­cial.

Have a great Thurs­day, let’s smash it!
