“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Goethe

Here’s one more quote I like a lot:

“You are what you think. You are what you go for. You are what you do!” Bob Richards, American Olympic Pole Vaulting Champion

The formula for success has three components: positive thinking, challenging goals and fulfillment of plans. Now is the best time to start working to achieve your weight loss and fitness goals.

“To live by another’s opinion of you is to make the absurd assumption that only in someone else’s mind are you real.” Thomas Merton

If you think that you need to get fit first and only then you will be able to join a gym because everybody there will be looking at you, read the quote again. You join the gym to get fit, not to please others. You know what you want to reach so go ahead and do not be afraid of what others may think or say. You will learn how to do all those exercises (this is not a rocket science); you just need some time to get used to them. Do not live by other’s opinion of you. It is your life.

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.” Mary Pickford

Do not treat every setback as an occasion to give up. You can always make a fresh start. If you have fallen down, stand up and go on. It is never late to start again.

“One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping stone to something better.” Col. Harland Sanders

It may sound strange, but every failure brings you closer to success because it makes you wiser. Even if you have a setback, treat it as temporary. It will pass soon. You may need this failure to make a great step toward success.

“The rest of the world lives to eat, while I eat to live.” Socrates

To lose weight, change your attitude to food. Do not treat food as an award or consolation. Food is fuel for your body. Choose food packed with vitamins, fiber and other essential nutrients, not just calories.

“The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.” Ivy Baker Priest

If you work hard in the gym, cut down calories but see no result, do not think that all you have done was useless. It is only the beginning of your healthy life. You will be thankful to yourself for making the decision not to give up. Go to the gym and in some time you will see the positive results of your hard work.

“Sports should always be fun.” Charles Mann, American Football Player

Have fun playing sports. Remember that you go in for sport to be fit and healthy, not to win the World Champion Cup. Choose amateur sport that will bring you pleasure and joy–for example, play ping-pong or take dance or yoga classes.

“When thoughts become action, success is attainable.” Pastor Rick Lancifort

You need to bend every effort to make your dream a reality. If you dream to lose weight, get up and go for a walk. Be active.

“Everyone makes mistakes – the only people who never fail are those who never even try.”

Tape this motivational quote to your mirror:

“Everyone makes mistakes – the only people who never fail are those who never even try.”

If you failed once, do not give up: think why it happened, fix the problem and get back on track. This way you will definitely reach your goal.

“It doesn’t matter how many say it cannot be done or how many people have tried it before; it’s important to realize that whatever you’re doing, it’s your first attempt at it.” Wally Amos

Never let anyone persuade you that you will fail. Find people who can encourage and support you.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” Helen Keller

If you are confident in your success, your will achieve great results. You should never lose confidence in yourself. Be an optimist. Positive thinking is an essential part of success.

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” Jim Ryun, American Athlete

Start your healthy life now. Learn new healthy habits: walk at least 30 minutes a day, eat more fresh vegetables and fruit, believe in yourself. Getting started is the most difficult part. It is especially important to keep your motivation up at the beginning. When you get used to a healthy lifestyle, it will be easier for you to manage your weight.

“If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.” Flavia Weedn

Sometime it is much easier to give up than to make a new attempt. When you think it is the end, it may be only the beginning. Give yourself a chance. You are much stronger than you think. Keep moving, never give up. You are on the right way!

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” Will Rogers

If you made a resolution to stick to a healthy lifestyle, just do it. Be active; keep moving closer to your goal.

“One small step at a time.”

You will reach your goal for sure if you break a complicated task into small actionable steps. Do just one step at a time. To get started, choose something you know you can do easily. That can get the ball rolling for getting more done. These small steps will get you where you need to go.

Another helpful thing is to write down what steps you are going to take. This makes you think your steps over and gives you an obligation to fulfill. One small step at a time. Try to keep that as your inspirational motto, and your are sure to succeed.
