The One BIG Reason You Aren’t Achieving Your Goals
People are good at creating goals, and terrible at making them come to life.
It’s a part of basic human nature to want to achieve something difficult. Studies show that we are happiest when we have a challenge. So why is it that so many people fail to follow through and achieve what they once said they was important to them?
Having been a trainer now for more than 5 years, I have witnessed 1000’s of people set 10’s of thousands of goals.
You name it I have seen it.
- Getting to a certain body weight.
- Fitting into a pair of jeans that haven’t been worn in years.
- Being able to run around with the kids without experiencing what feels like near death.
- Just being comfortable with what is seen in the mirror.
The list goes on…
The problem is not in setting these goals. Every single person I have met in the last 5 years has been able to envision some form of fitness success for themselves. Most of them needed help with what results to expect and how quickly we would see them, but all of them knew they weren’t content with where they were.
Now I know personally what that discomfort is like. For those who may not know, I have been on the same journey as almost all our members.
I remember very clearly what it is like to look into the mirror and be completely demoralised.
I have experienced the pain firsthand that comes with falling off the bandwagon time and time again.
I also know the wave of inspiration that hits you when you truly connect to a goal that is important to you.
To give you a personal example, mine for the past few months has been my Wedding Day coming up in August.
I set the goal to be in the best shape of my life on the special day, so that I could truly be confident in every aspect of how I was looking and feeling. So that I wouldn’t look back in 5 years and regret.
Setting that goal lit me up.
It inspired me instantly to go out and do whatever I must to make it happen.
I know you have experienced that feeling before too.
That wave of instant motivation is the most valuable commodity when it comes to fitness success.
The biggest mistake you can ever make with your goals is not reconnecting to them.
Everyone sets goals, everyone knows how. Everyone gets inspired.
But they almost never invest any time reconnecting with them.
The only time they do reconnect seems to be AFTER THEY HAVE FALLEN OFF THE BANDWAGON.
If you want to be successful with your health and fitness goals this time around, once and for all. Take the time to connect with them every single day.
Spend 15 minutes on your own with these 4 steps:
- Think of what the achievement allows you.
- How conquering the challenge will make you feel.
- How proud you will be of yourself.
- And how painful it would be to never realise that dream.
Try this, and you will feel the instant wave of energy and motivation, that I can promise you.
This exercise gives you a future to live into and focus on, and I have seen the difference it makes for a winning mindset first hand.
