And I want to help you actually follow through so that you can get to the end of 2022, feeling accomplished, like you actually accomplish the goals that you set out to do. Before I dive in, I want to see this review. It comes from Brooke, Marie one. She says everything, a woman needs to hear. I've been listening to Julie consistently for a couple weeks now and everything. She said in her podcast, is everything women need to hear her podcasts are honest and uplifting for those days.

And that's all you got to do and I'll be picking some of you guys weekly to give you a free entry into the town's. Okay. So let's dive in today's episode. I want to start out by giving you a reality check statistic, only 8% of people who make New Year's resolutions, stick to them and those who don't usually abandon them after just one week. That means that about 92% of people who set out to do something on New Years after one week. They abandoned that New Year's resolution and only 8% of people, typically stick to their New Year's resolutions, you know what? This means a new year. Does not automatically mean a new, you just because it's a new calendar year does not mean that anything has actually changed your obstacle.
It will still be your obstacles. Your struggles will still be your struggles, and your weaknesses will still be your weaknesses things. Don't just disappear or automatically get easier, just because it's in a new calendar year. I'm truly not saying this to D motivate you or to be a Debbie Downer, but I do want to be realistic about it. And I do want to help you. So let's be realistic. I should go without saying that unrealistic resolutions are fated to fail. It is unrealistic to think that just because it's a new calendar year. You can immediately overcome a habit that you spent years establishing or can immediately accomplish a goal that you've been trying to reach forever. But haven't been able to, with that being said, my advice to you, is to not just set a New Year's resolution and go into it blindfolded. You need to set your New Year's resolution and make a plan for actually executing on it. This is the biggest thing that most people fail to do. They failed to execute on the goal that they want to reach and that's why you need to make the execution.
Bull and clear, you need to break down all the barriers and create a simple plan of action. Ask yourself these three questions. What are your current obstacles that you're facing? That are preventing you from reaching your goal? Number to what have your previous failures been when it comes to you? Trying to achieve this specific goal and number three, what are your current weaknesses? What are weaknesses that you can identify, and these are things that, you know, you know, that you have a weakness with X, Y and Z and that is preventing you from reaching your goals. You have to first address these so that, you know, that they are a thing because Without You addressing them, you might know that there's something but you're not actually addressing them. So that you can make a plan of action for overcoming every single one of these things your obstacles, the things that our previous failures that have prevented you from reaching your goals or the weaknesses that are preventing you from reaching your goals. Next. You need to write out what habits you need to do daily.
And weekly to reach that goal that you have. So what are the things and what are the habits that you need to start implementing daily? And what are the habits and things that you need to start implementing weekly that will help you reach your goal? And then you need to think about, what are your obstacles and struggles, for each of these habits and make a plan for troubleshooting? He's so when they do arise, you know what to do, but most importantly, you'll prevent yourself from that even happening in the first place. Then you have to focus on the habits, not the actual resolution, the consistency you have with these habits will automatically accumulate and Lead You towards reaching your goal. So you don't need to focus on the result. You need to focus on what ultimately is going to get you. That result. I actually have an entire podcast episode that goes deep into this. If you're like kind of geeking out like I am, I love this kind of stuff because I love seeing people achieve their goals, and I loved it. Even my goal. And I know that there is a step-by-step approach that you
Must take in order to achieve your goals 99.9% of people that achieve their goals you guys. They might make it look easy on the outside from Instagram. You might see all the successes, but you don't know what actually went in to actually having them reach their goals. And so in episode 86 seven steps to setting and actually reaching your goals. I break it down for you. So I will go ahead and Link that in the show notes below. What the best way to achieve the goals that you want to achieve in the new year is acting like you're already that person, your habit is no longer, something that you do. It's something that you are. You don't work out. You are someone who works out. You don't eat healthy. Are someone who eats healthy. Do you notice the difference? The more you tell yourself that, that's what you are. The more it that you will begin to believe it in the more that your actions will align with your identity. So a simple example of this is this past year. I really wanted to become better at running so lifting weights and increasing my way and Progressive overload and getting stronger is something that I have consistently.
Year after year, I'm very comfortable with the weights. I love dumbbell workouts. That's why I have my movement Julie app. But ultimately I wanted to challenge myself this year because I noticed that something was lacking in my functional training and that was just my cardiovascular endurance. And so for me, I wanted to focus on becoming a better Runner. I didn't want to run miles and miles, but I wanted to become better at running like one or two miles without feeling like a totally took everything out of me. And so, this past year, I had to tell myself, I am going to become a runner. So, what does a runner do are run. Consistently implements running into my weekly. Regiment and like I said, I didn't want to run like a mi En Mi. So for me, it was like, okay. I am going to choose two or three times a week to run a mile. I'm going to force myself to do that initially force myself to do that and create the new habit of it. And then eventually I ask myself. Okay, what is a runner? Do a runner takes their time to do different?
Isles of training so that they can get better on endurance. A runner also does hit training, high, intensity, interval training. And so, over this past year. I've had to kind of remind myself that I am a runner because for years and years, my life. I told myself I'm not a runner. I'm not around and I wouldn't consider myself a marathon runner. I have no interest in doing marathon training or marathons in general. I have so much respect for people that do you, but I just love weight training so much, but I wanted to become a better Runner. And so for me, I had to really create that new identity when it comes to that physical gold that I had. And tell myself. I am a runner, I can be run or just because I haven't been a runner in the past, doesn't mean that I can't be around her in the future. And so if that's you, if you're in a place, where your may be pursuing something that you haven't done before, or maybe that you fail that previously, remind yourself that you have the opportunity to pursue, whatever goals it is that you want to pursue. And when you really try to link what your goal is.
To creating that identity and of itself of like what are the actions that a person? Who does that? What do they do? It will help you and your brain kind of connected a lot faster and it will be a lot easier for you to act on the actions that are needed to take. Okay. So I hope that this episode kind of gave you some food for thought when it comes to the New Year. New You mentality, just remember that. It's so important that you focus on breaking down the barriers and creating a plan of action. And again, episode 86 seven steps to setting and actually reaching your goals is a very helpful episode that you can listen to to really get nitty-gritty when it comes to breaking them down because I want you to be successful in 2022, and if you are wanting to start off the year and your healthiest, most vibrant self, I want to invite you to join me on your body challenge.
