Do you have a specific fitness goal that you are hoping to achieve?
This goal could be a number on the scale, or a clothing size. Or maybe you are hoping to wear a certain cut or style of clothes like tank tops, shorts, or a bathing suit this summer.
While having a goal like this is great, it will NOT guarantee success.
You know that, of course, because this isn’t the first time that you’ve had a fitness goal. A goal that you didn’t meet. In fact, you probably know dozens of other people who also have struggled to meet their fitness goals.
Here’s the typical scenario:
You get all excited to lose weight and get into shape and you start out completely gung-ho. Your enthusiasm lasts about two weeks, before old habits and routines slide back into place, cutting your results off before even getting close to reaching your goal. Then you get discouraged and disappointed, and your goal begins to fade from your mind. Then life goes on.
There's a different way to approach your goal, and it can make the difference between reaching it and not. For most people, the initial focus is on the result or end goal, rather than on a sustained focus on the process. Let's break this down…
Success is not about focusing on your end goal. It’s about focusing on the habits that will get you there and making your new lifestyle permanent.
Of course, once you’ve gotten those healthy habits to stick, you’ll end up meeting that end goal!
If you are ready to make some habit changes that will lead you to your end goal, read on. The goal that you’re hoping to reach one day doesn’t matter as much as the daily actions that will eventually lead you there, and here’s why…
IT’S ABOUT LIVING IN THE MOMENTUM.
Can you remember how it felt the last time that you ate clean, exercised regularly and got adequate sleep and water intake for a few consecutive days? A feeling of momentum came over you, didn’t it? There was a buzzing in your cells and a rhythm in your pace. You felt alive, you felt confident, and you felt empowered. You felt motivated, on track and excited. Never mind that you weren’t yet at your goal, you could feel that you were headed there!
Getting to your goal is the direct result of living in that state of momentum for an extended period of time.
You see, the momentum can be felt immediately, once you start eating clean, exercising right and taking care of your health, whereas that “goal number” simply can’t be felt until it is achieved, and so it’s not as powerful a motivator.
My challenge and advice to you is to find the joy of living in the momentum, and keep that momentum going until your goal is achieved. Focus only on the momentum and the daily actions, not on the end goal.
Fitness is a way of life, a lifestyle. It doesn't happen by accident or by hoping. It happens when you make your health and fitness a priority every single day and you take actions accordingly.
You have to think and behave as the fit and healthy person that you want to become.
