- the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
You want to be successful. Who doesn’t? How do you succeed? What does it take to reach the goals you have set for yourself.
That is assuming you have actually set some goals… you have, haven’t you?
Well, that would be step number one. Decide what you want to do. Be specific. “I want to lose weight” is unimaginative, unmotivating, and not something you can verify. How much weight do you want to lose? When do you want to lose it?
If you can’t come up with something specific then you don’t really want to make a change in your life, you just feel like you should. DECIDING to make a change takes the commitment of action, not good intentions.
The real key to being successful is one thing. It doesn’t matter how smart you are, what program, you follow, how often you workout, what you eat, or what latest fitness trend you follow.
The secret is….NEVER QUIT
If you follow the wrong program, as long as you keep trying you’ll figure out it’s the wrong one and find one that works….
If you are eating the wrong foods to get you where you want, as long as you keep looking for something that works, you’ll find the one for you.
If you get discouraged because you don’t think you’re progressing fast enough, as long as you keep putting in the time, you’ll eventually see results
If you feel like your trainer is always yelling at you and you can’t figure anything out, Be patient, they are there to help and if you listen and take your time, things will get better.
There are a million scenarios I could put in this blog about how the bottom line is to never quit.
No matter the scenario, keep working, keep learning, keep listening to your coaches, keep tracking your performance, keep eating right, keep getting enough sleep, keep spending time around positive people, and never ever stop.
It is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE TO FAIL if you keep working towards your goal. The plan you thought would get you there may change. As long as the goal is the same and you keep working, you’ll figure out a way to get there.
Ask for help when you need it. Look for proven coaches to guide you. Research proven fitness programs to follow. Find solid nutrition guidance and stick with it.
There is nothing as crushing as seeing someone with potential (That’s you) start something, then realize it’s going to take work, only to give up and never become what they set out to be. Don’t be that person.
