Getting in shape can often be an ongoing struggle for most people.
Let me set the scene…
– You’ve tried different crash diets.
– You’ve tried different workout plans.
– You’ve tried different coaches.
Yet you’ve never achieved the results you wanted.
You are motivated for a few weeks, but that begins to die off too, and you eventually fall off track.
– You start half-assing your workouts.
– You start cheating on your diet.
– You start skipping your cardio sessions.
Then the excuses start to surface…
– I have bad genetics.
– I’m too old.
– My metabolism is slow.
THE HARD TRUTH
Guess what the real problem is… Your weak mindset.
You can continue to blame your metabolism or your age until the cows come home, but the root cause of the problem is your mindset.
The story you’re telling yourself is either contributing or hindering you from becoming your best self.
MOTIVATION and WILLPOWER are useless if you lack CLARITY and DISCIPLINE
Motivation and willpower alone will NOT get you results.
Why? Because motivation and willpower do NOT last.
Being CLEAR on your path and building DISCIPLINE is the key to getting long lasting results.
Here are a few things you can do to help when your motivation and willpower eventually dry up… which they will.
Establish where you are TODAY, and where you want to be in 3-6 MONTHS.
Define your NON-NEGOTIABLES (what you’re not willing to accept).
Create a realistic ACTION PLAN and write it down.
Build ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS that keep you held to your goals.
Develop DAILY ROUTINES and be religious with them. For example: craft your morning routine – wake up 1 hour earlier each day to workout, so you don’t “sack it off” at the end of the day when you feel drained.
Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do
