The trouble is, most of us then proceed to set entirely unrealistic resolutions that we ultimately fail. In this short video, Shihan Phil offers insight into his opinion of new years resolutions and his suggestions for how you can smash through your 2017 goals.

Hi, what’s up? Shihan Phil here to welcome you back to 2017. I really want to get you kick started and to get you in the right frame of mind, you know.

There’s a lot of talk about new year’s resolutions. Well, you know what, I actually don’t like new year’s resolutions. Every single day is a new day for you to change. How do you change? Well, one thing is to overcome the mental blockage that stops you from coming to training. What stops you from coming to training? What stops you from looking and feeling your best is you. It’s nothing else, not the external activities, not work, or even family. It’s you.

When you can finally overcome the mental block that stops you personally from living the life that you want on your terms, that means getting fit and healthy, then you’re happy, then you’re going to start taking action in your life. You’re going to start getting a life on your terms.

So this year is your year. The only person that can make it your year is you. We’re here to help you and serve you, but you have to turn up. So get off the couch, get into the classes. Stop blaming or thinking it’s everyone else that’s stopping you from living your life, and get into training and start making a difference in your life right now.
