Mind Set 8 Goal Setting

How does your mind react to goal setting?

Does it say, “no way” or “yes, I love to set goals?”

I must admit that my mind balks at goal setting right now because I have been an over-achiever in my past. I’m enjoying a more relaxed approach to living now.

But I do have goals that I enjoy, like improving my level of fitness so I can continue to participate in the annual Labor Day triathlon. These goals seem to fit in naturally and without pressure in my lifestyle.

Goals serve us the best when they help us stay mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually balanced.

Let’s see how we can incorporate goals in a healthy and enjoyable way so our minds will receive and implement them well. Then weight loss comes as a nice side effect of having health building goals.

The media shouts “weight loss” as your ultimate goal. Let’s get rid of that idea. The need to lose weight comes out of something unhealthy going on in your mind, emotions, body or spirit. So overweight is a symptom, not the cause of your weight loss problem.

Instead make your primary goal a healthy you.

Then look at the steps you need to take to get you to that goal.

Review these problems that keep you from losing weight:

Upset glandular (endocrine) balance

Food allergies



Trying to tackle all of those problems at once will overwhelm your brain and it will screech on the brakes and derail all your plans to be the healthiest you can be.

So let’s just take one small step at a time. As the first small step becomes a habit (subconscious and a natural part of your routine), then go to the next small step. You’ll just sneak all of these great habits past your brain to avoid getting it all flustered.

Begin making your changes in small easy do-able steps in a sequence that your brain and busy schedule can handle.

Implementing these health building measures will help take the stress off of your glands and help nourish and rebuild them and the rest of your tissues and organs. Health begins at the cell level. Refurbish, detoxify and nourish your cells properly. Cells make up tissues. Tissues make up organs. Organs function in systems. When all systems are “go”, you are healthy and living comfortably and joyously at your healthy body weight.

These are the foundations for detoxifying and rebuilding your cells:

  • Healthy eating – you will need Dr. Jo’s Natural Healing Cookbook to get you started.
  • Detoxification – take a look at chelation
  • Exercise – just have fun, take a walk.

You can do this. You have a great mind set. Your enthusiasm will propel you forward into your healthy svelte future. You focus on the positive in your thoughts, words and actions. You have a buddy to support and encourage you. Enjoy your journey to health.
