The Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 3
This episode is something that I’ve been talking about in my practice for years. Resolutions don’t work. That’s nothing new- the vast majority of people will fail at completing their resolutions by the third week in January (right about now). If you’ve made a resolution for 2017 and are currently hanging your head in defeat – no worries. We can fix that.
But the big question is why? Resolutions are just goals, right? And goals work…right? So am I saying we shouldn’t set goals? Not a chance! Goal work – but how we do them (and when we do them) is one of the biggest reasons why they succeed or fail. (Stay tuned to podcast 4 for the biggest reason why we succeed or fail with goals.)
In this episode, you will learn-
-The real reason people give up on their resolutions so early. (It’s not the office cookies.)
-The exact right time to set goals that work.
-Precisely how to set goals so that they’re as easy as possible.
-Why knowing what to do (and doing it) isn’t enough.
At the end of the episode, I walk you though the exact way to set up a goal and set you up to make an easy one of your own (that you’ll be motivated to do).

A big part of goals is why we’re doing them in the first place. The first and best person I’ve heard talk about this is Simon Sinek in his book “Start With Why”.
**Caveat: Simon talks about great leaders inspiring others. As you know from Podcast 2, I have a slight difference in this belief: People choose to feel inspired by these leaders. The leaders don’t make people feel anything they don’t want to feel. HOWEVER – I do think the drive and internal motivation and creative insights these leaders have is driven by a powerful sense of knowing Why.
