Change Your Mind if You Want

woman-with-ball-and-chainNote: We recently launched of a seminar series, “Five Things You Must Know To Make Your Life Better.”  As part of that series, one of the things we went over were the “10 Commandments of Changing Habits.” This is one of those “commandments.”

Thou shalt be free from long-term binders.

Goal setting is not a prison sentence. Simply because you set a goal does not mean you have to carry it to the end. You are grown-up and you can decide at any time that your goal is not worth it and change your mind.

However, while on the path, go boldly and proudly.

Every Monday, a new motivational memo is posted by Scott “Q” Marcus, Motivational Weight Loss Expert for Baby Boomers and Life Balance and Productivity Expert. Subscribers to 21DayHabitChange.com and Scott’s coaching service get this – and many more benefits – sent to them directly. If you’d like to get these delivered to your email box (and get a free motivational book of quotations downloaded to your computer), follow this link.
