Use your blog to motivate you to succeed. You don't have to bare your soul or anything - but if you want and need support - that is a great place to get it.
You choose how much information you share, but it is a good place to keep track of your goals and to plan your path. If you aren't using it and you aren't succeeding - give it a try!
I have seen many different blogs out there - and the people that seem the most successful - blog about their journey. Those that aren't succeeding - may not be using this tool to their advantage. Use it to communicate triumphs and mistakes - and use it to help you succeed.
IF YOU ARE GETTING BACK ON TRACK, THIS TIME TRY DOING IT FOR "ME, MYSELF, AND I." DON'T DO IT FOR HIM10, HER32, OR THEM103 ONLY TAKE IN CONSIDERATION THE BENEFITS IT WILL BRING TO "ME, MYSELF, AND I" THIS WAY YOU CAN'T FAIL2249

Don't try to change every aspect of your life in one fell swoop. Choose one small thing and work at it realistically then give yourself LOTS of praise and credit for the healthy changes you are making. Success builds on success. So Choose something you can succeed at.
Too often we set ourselves for failure and self propetuating negativity. Set yourself up for success instead. Choose small goals that are achieved with just a little effort, then keep building on those. Believe that what you have already accomplished proves you can and will continue to do more.
