Mistake No. 2 - “I’m going to be perfect this time.”
This mindset simply breeds failure. When real life happens and things aren’t so perfect, people who think this way throw in the towel fast.
Solution: Set realistic expectations. We are all perfectly imperfect. We will fall on our faces hundreds of times throughout our lives. This doesn’t signal failure. If you fall off your diet or miss the gym, share the news with a friend who doesn’t judge—absolve yourself of the guilt and move on.
