Goals and Aspirations for 2012
Happy belated 2012 to all! I can already feel it. 2012 will be one for change. To be successful in adapting to change no matter what the situation and/or endeavor, you have to have a conviction and passion to what you are trying to achieve. Change is inevitable and we all need to learn how to embrace it and use it to our advantage. Thus, setting new goals or modifying past goals you have made in life is essential and there is no better time to make that commitment to change then the ringing in of a new year.
My TOP 10 goals for 2012 are as follows and not really in any particular order except my #1 goal each year since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s stays the same:
1. Fight back the progression of PD in any way shape or form possible until we find a cure.
2. Be more thankful for what you have because one morning when you wake up it may be gone.
3. To have an impact on others in helping them achieve their dreams.
4. Continue working out 7 days per week for good health, fitness and to slow down or stop the progression of PD.
5. Don’t Give Up, Don’t Ever Give Up”. ATTITUDE matters. One common response to some of my previous posts regarding fighting back against Parkinson’s is what a difference a positive attitude can make if you really believe in it. Talk is cheap, action with attitude wins.
6. Truly enjoy life to its fullest. Tell your wife or significant other you love them every day. Stop and take the time and listen to your family on what is important to them. Just listen. Do not try to guide them in a different direction or mention a fix to what maybe a problem, JUST LISTEN…
7. Make contact and build relationships with other Parkinson’s foundations to all work together to find a cure in our lifetime.
8. Meet face-to-face with Michael J. Fox and Mr. Ali with purpose to increase awareness worldwide of the myths of Parkinson’s. Convince both to do more in our fight against PD by being more outspoken.
9. Stay in better touch with your life-long friends. The ones that you lift up and in return lift you up when you talk or exchange emails or texts.
10. I know it sounds corny, but it’s simple. Be the best you can be at whatever you choose to do.
So, if you have not already set your goals for 2012, what are you waiting for? It is important to write them down so you can look back each year to see how successful you were in achieving your goals. Share your goals with your family and close friends too.
Housekeeping: Over the past month I have moved my AttitudeFitnessWins blog from a Word Press hosted site to a self-hosted site. This has taken a good deal of my time and is one of my main excuses for not having more frequent blogs. Now that I have most of the bugs out, my promise to those that have followed me will be to have a new post every week on either Tues. or Weds. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Note: If you signed up as a subscriber on my Word Press hosted blog, please take the time to re-subscribe on my new site www.attitidefitnesswins.com . My new Attitude Fitness Wins site is easily recognized as the header photo is of the greatest of all time, Mohammad Ali. Thanks again.
