The Way To A Healthy And Wealthy New Year – Invest In You!

New Year is a time when we reflect on what might have been and give some thought about what might be. It’s also a time of reckoning when all those things you’ve been putting off stare you firmly in the face demanding action. Are you going to do something about them or find a good excuse to carry on as you did before?

When you take stock of where you are it’s no use unless you are completely honest with yourself. Think of yourself as ‘Me Inc’. The New Year should be the time that you audit the performance of Me Inc. Is it still a good investment? What can you do to make it perform better?

It’s a sad fact that too many of us run our lives on autopilot and we seldom take stock of our most important investment – ourselves. Instead of taking control of our lives and making things happen, we allow things to happen to us.

New Year is a very good opportunity to take stock of your health and your wealth. Actually, your wealth is your health. It is the most valuable thing you possess, but all too often it is sadly neglected. We invest too much of our time looking after ‘things’ rather than ourselves.

It needn’t be this way. A New Year can be a timely prompt for change. It can be a time when you say goodbye to all your bad habits and start to learn new ones. It can be a time when you realize the true value of your investment and start to pay it proper attention. So, how is your health? How’s your weight? Need to get rid of a few pounds? If you do there’s no time like a New Year to make a start in getting rid of them.

So, if you are overweight, what are you going to do about it? If you don’t want to be going through the same process in 2010, you need to lose weight permanently. Don’t you think it’s time to say goodbye to this annual ritual and make some real changes in your life?

Change is another word for learning. It’s not something that you should be worried about. We change all the time in our everyday lives, it’s what life is all about. There is no need to fear change, you need to embrace it.

Why don’t you ‘grab the bull by the horns’ this New Year? Start by ‘noticing’ more about you. Try and identify the bad habits that contributed to you becoming overweight. This will help you to identify new habits – new slim habits – that will be the drivers for permanent weight loss. Learn new habits and you will be able to change your behavior. Behavior change is what will significantly improve the performance and the market value of ‘Me Inc’. That’s got to be a good start to the New Year!
