Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to work with a wide variety of people with many different goals. I’ve seen dozens of Karate Kids who’ve spent several years to achieve their Black Belts. I’ve also seen hundreds of adults take off tremendous amounts of weight in just 12 weeks, and 20 different Biggest Loser groups.

What I’ve come to realize is that even though their goals are diverse, the process is pretty much the same. I was reminded of this recently when doing some planning for our new group of Karate for Kids students and our Biggest Loser “21” group which is also just getting underway. So here are 10 steps that will help each of these groups of kids and adults get where they want to go:

1. Know what you want. You have to have a goal. It’s impossible to set course if you don’t have a destination.

Someone I hadn’t seen in awhile stopped me the other say. They’d gained 30 lbs and wanted some help getting going again. I got them started, but couldn’t help but think about the dozens of conversations I’ve had like this before.

Unfortunately, I see this all the time. People will work like crazy for three or six months but then just let it go. I’ve even had several work a whole year to lose 100 lbs, but then put it back on.

What’s so hard to understand is how this happens, especially after someone puts in all that time and hard work. It’s like spending a ton of money for a new lawn and landscaping, and then just deciding not to mow all summer. Or the next year, and the next.
