Use your family to help you reach your goals

Courtesy of Alan Kerr, a USANA associate in Canada who referred to Brian Klemmer:

Several options to raise your level of intent for what you want, are:

1) making commitments

2) putting yourself at risk

3) visualization

Let’s go back to your goal as we consider making commitments.  Who have you shared your goals with?  If you haven’t told anyone, then the odds are you want the result, but it isn’t your intent.

If you have children, try this:
Make a commitment to them regarding what you will get done in two weeks.  Now ask them what they want when you get it done in two weeks.  Be sure to negotiate if they ask for something unreasonable!

Explain to them that the family is a team and that everyone has different roles.  Part of your role is to produce and part of their role is to be supportive of you.

If you’re like most parents, you would rather do many uncomfortable things than face your children at the end of two weeks and say, “You don’t get what I promised, because I didn’t get done what I said I would do.”

By committing to your children you have raised and clarified your intent.

Give it a go and share your results with us!
