Happy New Year! Top 10 Inspirational Words of Wisdom

This is the opening post for the year 2014. Happy New Year everyone!

First off, thanks to all Her Weight Loss Diary's followers, friends, family and stalker for your support in 2013. Thank you for the encouraging comments, motivation, and the listening ears. May this new year brings all the crazy colors and fun in your life. 

It was so sad and embarrassing to say good bye to 2013 because I DID NOT complete my weight loss goal. Not even close. But to give up? It's way too early to call it quit. I posted this question before, about setting a deadline for a weight loss goal. I believed weight loss deadline could be a great motivation booster. Hence I set my goal to be on my ideal weight before my birthday last November. But that never happened. That soft deadline clearly did not help me to stay motivated until my goals done. It stresses me out, to be honest. Another year goes by without any major accomplishment. So this year losing weight with a deadline is not going to be part of the plan anymore. Giving weight loss a deadline is creating a sense of urgency that sometimes coupled with unrealistic expectations. And when things don't go as planned you may end up with frustration and that will altogether kill your motivations. Furthermore, weight loss is not about exercise and diet but it's about healthy lifestyle. It's a lifetime commitment.

I don't want to apologize for being an annoying blogger. You read a lot about weight loss stuff here but you were like, she's not going anywhere. It's true that I am not a success story yet. Well, MISSED DEADLINE IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE. I don't need to feel bad about myself after not achieving my weight loss goal on a certain time frame. And there's no reason to worry about what friends and family might think. I'm not in a competition to win approval from anyone. I am in my own race to be healthier. And as we're entering a new year, I think it is important to reflect and re-evaluate myself and my weight loss goal. 

Here are top 10 inspirational words of wisdom worth sharing. I hope these wisdom can help you to reevaluate your failed goals whatever your goals might be and I hope it stays with you throughout the year, inspires you to set realistic and obtainable goals you can actually reach.

Imagine becoming successful
1. What you declare, you will achieve. - Abraham Lincoln

3. If I have correct goals and I keep pursuing them the best way I know how, everything falls into line. If I do the right thing, I am going to succeed. - Dan Dierdorf

4. If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. - Jim Rohn

Have faith in what you can do
5. If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. - Zig Ziglar

6. Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you're generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don't make. - Donald Trump

Take action and do your best
7. Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. - Brian Tracy

8. If I had to select one quality and one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick persistence and determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, "Here comes number seventy one."
- Richard M.Devos

Learn from your past experience, and try not to repeat your mistakes
9. If you mess up and learn nothing, it's a mistake. If you mess up and learn something, it's an experience.
- Mark McFadden

10. A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them. - John C. Maxwell
