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?
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!
