Make sure you start 2013 with a positive attitude to your personal development, particularly in relation to your health and wellbeing. Before the first week of the new year has passed, set yourself a plan for the year. Your plan doesn't have to be long or complicated, it can relate to just a few things that you really want to achieve this year. Set yourself some objectives to work on throughout the year and get started on them right away.
Here are a few ideas for you to think about but remember your plan must be personal to you:
    • To start with you may want to lose a bit of that extra weight you gained over the festive period
    • Plan your life activities to make sure you have time for your own health and wellbeing
    • Commit to your Karate training and push other less important things to one side
    • Set a date to take your next grade and work hard to achieve it
    • Set out your training plan to make at least two classes each week
    • Think about what went wrong for you last year and aim to put it right with a good plan
Just one further thought. Don't do as many others do and subscribe to the 'blame game'. Take full responsibility for your own actions that lead to your successes or to your failures and remember, 'if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail'
Have a great 2013!
