Want to know how I have maintained a fitness lifestyle all these years? Want to know how I keep myself accountable? Want to know how my clients transform? Well, I have five words for you!
Whether you want your body to look a certain way, to get that particular job, or to have a certain quality life YOU have to BE CONSISTENT. What you do each day has a much bigger impact on your life than what you do once in a while.
I promise you, the 20 minutes you give to cardio every day will have longer lasting results then the 2 hour session you do once a month. Consistently lifting weights multiple times a week will have a much greater impact on your physique then trying to do a marathon weight session a few times a month. Trust me friends, it is the daily habits that mold your life.
I cannot begin to explain the importance of being soft with your goals. Be stubborn in your pursuit, but keep close to heart that life is unpredictable. Things happen to us that are often out of our control. We cannot always control injuries, the loss of loved ones, illness, and more. When our life gets hit with chaos, pain, or loss we have to be FLEXIBLE and adjust our approach to our goals.
Even dealing with day to day life can be tough. Life often gets more complicated as we grow. We all have jobs, families, and many responsibilities. Be flexible with how you approach your daily schedule. Make your fitness fit into your lifestyle. You have 24 hours in a day, which means there is tons of wiggle room for that one hour workout (which is just 4% of your day!). You also have time to cook your own food. Simply, make a plan and follow through, but be flexible when needed.
There comes a point in one's journey when motivation no longer matters or is needed to get a task done. All that is needed is determination. Having determination is a HUGE, essential component to being successful. With every competition I had done, it was not motivation that got me into the gym to train 3 hours a day after working 8 hours, it was determination. Determination is all about doing what needs to be done, even when you don't feel like doing it.
Your purpose is why you stay determined. Your purpose is why you allow yourself to be flexible in your approach toward goals. Your purpose is why you decide to have daily consistency in your thoughts, words, and actions. Having purpose is what drives you to be unstoppable. Purpose is what gets you out of bed everyday. It is what navigates you through your life. Purpose is critical if you want success, happiness, and health. Find your purpose and watch your life come alive!
In the end, everything comes down to YOU. No one is going to win the race for you. No one is going to lose the weight for you. No one is going to build muscle for you. No one is going to do anything for you because you can do it for yourself. This is reality. Nothing is owed to anyone. No person deserves anything. You have to work for everything. This is the coach in me speaking to you. You have to grind to get to where you want to go. If you follow my five words to success you will be unstoppable. I promise. You mind-set is everything. Your daily actions are everything. Your attitude is everything. You are everything. Stop looking for the missing piece because it is right in front of you. Look in the mirror if you are unsure where to find it. Do you see? It's YOU! You are the one who can make anything in your life possible.
