VIDEO: Using the 'SMART' principle to follow through with your personal goals

In this week's Health, Fitness and Mindset blog, award winning personal trainer, Seamus Fox talks about setting goals, maintaining focus and following through to achieve those targets . . .

We all set goals at some time or another - in my industry it’s usually January - and the bigger the goal the bigger demand for action and persistence is needed.

Why people fall short on their goals a lot of the time is because they set vague goals, not specific meaningful ones. When setting goals focus on something that has a deeper meaning, for example; "I want to lose weight because I want to be around for my children, to lead by example and to enjoy a happier and more fulfilled life with them”.

This has an emotional connection and it’s hell of a lot stronger than, “I want to lose a stone.

It’s funny that when we want to achieve things for other people we usually carry through, but when it’s for us alone we don’t feel it’s meaningful enough.

The most important person in your life is. . . YOU! Once you look after yourself, what you can offer others is a better version than who you are now.

like I’ve said in the above video, use the 'SMART' principal to set proper goals and targets, and work your ass off until you get them.
