With today’s overwhelming availability of nutrition and fitness information, the sharing of data, video, audio, there is no shortage of available knowledge; knowledge equaling potential change, potential weight loss, potential fitness. Still it’s potential. You need to take Action.
ACTION involves consistent follow through of a program, that ensures your ultimate outcome. Implementing what you have learned. Do you do it? Or do you read, concur that was a great idea and then move on without taking action.
In order to move towards what we do want with our health and fitness and away from what we don’t, it requires knowledge followed by consistent follow through until that goal is achieved. In order to stay consistent, try implementing a few of these tips to help you get on track and stay on target.
Create a mental image of what you want. Then focus on this image with positive intent (not with a fearful tone of “how the heck am I going to get there”) upon waking and going to sleep each night.
Tackle one workout at a time. Often accomplishing smaller goals will simultaneously lead to the accomplishment of your BIGGER goal along with the additional smaller ones. This thought process often keeps overwhelm at bay.
Act upon intuition. Even if you feel like you aren’t ready or aren’t prepared or aren’t good enough…DONT let that stop you. What are your options, to try it and know for sure, or never know cause you did not try.
Even if you feel like you will never make it or you are just too tired, keep going. Little by little, day by day, you will be building momentum that will carry you when necessary as long as you start.
There are no magic diets or fitness plans. When you have the passion to seek out the knowledge and accountability you will each your goal.
So don’t be intimidated by the amount of information available and whether or not you will be able to keep up, just keep it simple…decide, envision, act then act again and again and again and again until you get to where you wish to be.
