Fat to Fit: Make 2014 The Year of the Do

I’ve been watching the interwebs and all of the people that are making resolutions for 2014. There are some determined people making some life changing goals out there. I’m inspired. I even have a few of my own.

I only have one thing to add to the conversation.

The fundamental difference between those who will succeed in their resolutions and those who won’t comes down to one simple thing.

It’s not what you think, believe, or feel that will determine your success at change in 2014.

It’s what you DO.

No one stood up and said “I think” or “I believe” or “I feel.”

Make 2014 the year of the do.

Go DO it.

Keep moving forward,
