So, are you?
Remember to use M.A.C.E.!
Motivation – be sure it’s self-motivated, not external
Attainable – make sure it’s within reach. We’re talking days, not months
Controllable – you have to be able to control the goal. Weight loss is not a controllable goal, it’s a potential result of a healthier-living goal
Enjoyable – if you don’t enjoy the process, you wont reach your goal

As most of you know, I launched the TGIM Group Video Coaching Program: 6 Mondays
Here is the intro video to the first section “Emotional Currency”. You don’t get access to the main content of how to determine your daily balance etc… (that’s for members only!) but this video gives you a great insight into the concept.
(And what’s up with my head in the first freeze frame in the video?!?! Creepy…)
What do you think of the concept? Leave a comment below!

- A Stranger
- Smile as you walk past – A smile is so rare nowadays, it may actually stun the person and have them asking “Did I know that person?” I still think it’s worth the risk
- Hold the elevator – Bonus points if the person is with children, or has their hands full
- Smile as you drive past - People think this is weird, yet have no problem staring blankly at other people in cars instead. Stop it, you look awkward
- Say thank-you – Regardless if it’s someone who holds the door for you, brings you a meal or let’s you take a parking space, a “thank-you” can be the two words that changes their day
- Say please - It’s something we always ask our children to say, yet think we get an exemption as adults
- Say “excuse me” when you walk between them and something they’re looking at – This isn’t the “excuse me” to get someone to move out of your way, but said when breaking someone’s view. Falls under common courtesy, but it ain’t so common.
- Put a quarter in their expired meter – The person may never know you did it, but it can be the little nudge that changes their day
- Give them a compliment – Especially if someone just got their hair done, this could not only make their day, but their entire week!

Jason McElwain, nicknamed J-Mac, was an autistic teenager who graduated in 2006 from Greece Athena High School near Rochester, New York. He’s noted for scoring twenty points during the final four minutes of a high school basketball game on February 16, 2006. It was the last home game of the season for the Greece Athena team.
McElwain had actually never made it onto the basketball team. He was considered too short (5′6″/167 cm) and hadn’t demonstrated an adequate skill level during tryouts. But the coach quickly saw his love and passion for the team and made the boy team manager. At the end of the basketball year, inspired by McElwain’s dedication, coach Jim Johnson thought he might take the opportunity to get McElwain onto the floor during the final home game-provided, of course, that the Greece Athena team was ahead by several points. The coach figured this would be a wonderful way to demonstrate an appreciation for McElwain’s constant enthusiasm and all that the boy had done for the team.
