You have to take some kind of action no matter how small or big to achieve your desired outcome.

I noticed that when I talk to people when they want to get started on there Health and Fitness journey they are sometimes hesitant and want the perfect day to get started or the perfect time to get started.

When is that perfect day or time?original_personalised-textured-quote-print

NOW!

Saying I will start tomorrow or next week or next month or when I get some new shoes or when I get some time isn’t going to change anything for you. I didn’t workout today and it didn’t kill me, so it must be OK. 3 or 6 or 12 months later….and you are out of breath and panting as you walk from the car to your office or up a flight of stairs or running for the bus. This way of thinking will NOT get you closer to your health, wellness and vitality goals. You have to avoid these mistakes and this way of thinking as it will end up costing you.

Now let’s flip it…

Success on the other hand is doing the things we don’t want to do and doing it to our very best no matter what. It’s a few simple disciplines practiced daily. Its like getting up in the morning and following your routine.

Successdul people always have a plan and stick to it no matter what. They know what they want and go after it with drive, determination, discipline and massive action.

You can do the same with your health and fitness by doing the little things on a daily basis. Commit to working out a minimum of 4-5 times a week and for at least 30 mins of intense exercise to break a sweat but not leaving your exhausted and drained. You should feel energized after these workouts.

Plan you meals ahead of time. Know what you are having for each of your meals by taking a day each week to plan your meals for the week. At first this may take some time but to be successful you have to plan for the results you want to achieve.

Start slow and build. Don’t try to run a marathon before you can run. A baby has to learn to crawl first, then goes through the stages before he or she can walk, then run. It’s a process. Be patient with the stages and the process.

We as humans have the ability to take control of our lives. Its through our conscious choices on a daily basis, that we can develop and transform our lives, to what we dream of it being.

Make each day a success with your daily choices to unleash your true potential to be your ultimate best.

Live with Intention, Passion and Courage!

I am trying!!!

I know you have said that before in some area of you life. I myself have said that on many occasions. But what does I am trying mean?

i_am_trying_so_hard-4656

It is neither here or there. There is nothing to it really. There is no commitment to anything when you say try. I am trying to lose weight, I am trying to get back to working out, I am trying to eat right….

Here is the thing….

You are either going to lose weight, start working out and eating right or you are simply NOT going to do so. There is no in the middle of trying.

By saying you are trying, you then have the excuse of ‘you tried,’ if things didn’t workout. That’s what we call being a lamb and not being a lion. A lion doesn’t try to go after his prey, he attacks it with everything he has. He stalks his prey. He sets it up so he is in the best position to conquer his prey. There is no half hearted effort with a lion. It is ALL in.

Start Doing

Are you trying to lose weight – or going to commit to losing weight?

Are you trying to eat right – or going to eat right?

Are you going to try and workout – or commit to joining a training facility to workout?

What to do next?

  1. Eliminate the word try from your vocabulary. There is no substance to the word try. It is not the most inspiring word in the dictionary and it does not empower you or motivate you to be a lion and attack life.
  2. Make a decision. You are either going to ‘do it’ or you are ‘not going to do it.’ Be honest with yourself and it will save you a lot of heart ache down the line. Stop pretending and START DOING!
  3. Make a commitment. There is nothing more rewarding than committing to something and seeing it to the end. The person you become at the of the commitment is where the reward lies.

This can be applied to any area of your life that you want to improve on. Make that commitment today, to doing what you need to do, to unleash your true potential to be your ultimate best.

Live with Purpose, Passion & Courage!
