So, you want to achieve a goal. You’ve been thinking about it for quite some time. You know you can do it. Maybe you've done it once before. But now, it eludes you.

All you can think is….

It’s too hard!

I’m too tired.

I’ll start tomorrow.

I have an answer for you that will help you achieve your goals every single time. It comes in the form of one word.


Let me show you how it works.

Let’s take getting fit.

You think about it all the time.

You know you should.

You just can’t get started.

Day 1. Grab a sheet of paper.

What does this have to do with getting fit? Well, I’ll tell you! You’ve been thinking about it for some time now. It’s time to get it out of your head and into the real world. Now go get that paper!

Day 2. Grab a pen.

Really! I have to wait a whole day to write anything down? No, you have to wait two days! : )

Day 3. Write down 1 goal – (hint…To get fit)

Day 4. Write down 1 way you would enjoy getting fit. (Yes, it’s okay to enjoy it. In fact, it's pretty darn important that you do!)

Day 5. Write down more ways you would enjoy getting fit.

Day 6. Write down when you will put the time in to get fit. What time of the day. What days of the week.

You are putting it down on paper, so we can consider it as a contract with yourself. Very important!

Day 7. Rest.

No, I’m just kidding. : ) Today, we prepare. We make sure we have our shoes or our videos or our bike tires filled with air or we check the schedule at the club for classes.

Day 8. Let’s take a look at all the things that will stop us from working out. Make a list.

Schedule change.

Too tired.

Just don’t want to.

etc. etc. etc.

Write down every thing you can think of. This is important. These are the rascals that chip away at your success. You have to know what they are so when they show up you can fight them off. : )

Day 8. Decide what you are going to do to get fit and when you are going to do it.

Day 9. Look at what you decided you are going to do to get fit. Let’s say riding your bike. I want you to create an easily achievable goal for the first day. Enough to feel like you did it but not so much that it was effort. You want to enjoy it. You want a nice, easy gradient.

Day 10. Now, do it.

Did you do it? Feels good right?

Take a win!

Now write it down that you did it!

Apply the same gradient to your actual workouts. Start easy….oh so very easily. Continue to give yourself big wins. You must know that there is more that you can give in the future. You can do this with any goal!

Now you're on your way!

Congratulations! You have just tackled a goal that’s been swimming around in your head for quite some time!

And guess what? We just applied the first three steps of being an artist to getting fit!

Check it out!

1. Accept the challenge

2. Define the rules

3. Master your craft

As your workouts become a part of your life then you can take the next two steps!

4. Infuse you

5. Elevate your skill

You truly have the ability to do anything. You just have to set yourself up to win!

You have created something special today using gradients! A roadmap to achieving one of your goals!

So Very Well Done!

You Are An ARTIST.

I see it.

With Great Love,
