Serious about achieving your goal?
If you are then you must know your reason ‘why’ for doing it.
That’s where most people fall down. They pick a goal but there is no real powerful reason for actually doing it.
If your reason isn’t powerful enough you absolutely won’t stick with it when you run into a bit of a challenge…. and you will run into challenges.
- You have to work late
- your kids get sick
- you get stuck in traffic
- you have to travel
- You get sick
- you pick up an injury
You get the idea. Nobody gets a clean run at getting fit and healthy without any hiccups along the way.
Johnny wants to lose 3 stone, get fit and healthy and increase his energy levels.
Great goals Johnny. Now, why do you want to do this?
Option A)- So I can show everyone what a great body I have——–>>>> I’m not joking, this is a real life example!!!!!!
Option B)- I’m missing out on quality time with my children due to my lack of energy. I don’t have the fitness to play soccer with them… I literally have to stop after 1 minute. Also, the time I spend with my wife revolves around eating processed food, watching t.v. and we are both exhausted. I really want to have great memories and experiences with my family, avoid lifestyle related illness like type 2 diabetes and be a great role model for them. I’m not doing that at the moment and this makes me unhappy.
What reason do you think is more likely going to encourage you to achieve your goals?
I’ll leave you to answer that one yourself.
Bottom line is that you need a strong enough reason to drive you forward. When you hit an obstacle, and you’ll hit more than one, remind yourself of your WHY- kids, diabetes, confidence, quality family experiences, etc.
If you WHY is worthy enough (and only you can know that) it will be powerful enough to keep you moving forward.
Train hard, train smart and stay healthy (and know your why).
Go forth and apply guys.
