These are things that I believe will be imperative to making 2022 better. If you take these reflections to heart & put them into play, I can promise that your new year will be a more enjoyable and happy one.
Big Wins come from Small Steps
Anybody that achieves huge success in life will tell you that it was a process, not a single event. Nothing worth having comes with one single action, one single step, or one single effort. You must be willing to put in effort and take action - just a little bit - every day, and the compounded results are enormous.
You could have the world’s best training program & nutrition guide in your hands, but if you do not believe that you will be successful at what you’re trying to achieve, you will fail. And you will continue to experience this cycle over and over again, no matter what methods or modalities you choose…. In order to change your body and your life, you must change your mindset and beliefs.
Your Values Can be Determined by Looking at Your Schedule & Bank Statement
We all operate with 2 currencies- time and money. It is how we choose to spend these 2 currencies that will uncover what we truly value. For example, someone who says “I don’t have the time to exercise regularly or make healthy meals” but spends hours a day watching TV, scrolling social media, or doing other mindless tasks. The same goes for someone who “can’t afford personal training” but regularly spends money on take-out, booze, clothes, etc. Revisit how you use each of these currencies carefully, and you will find exactly where you can make some corrections to get where you want to be.
Life Exists in Shades of Gray
So many people think in black & white when it comes to their health & fitness:
“I can’t eat ANY carbs.”
“If I mess up on my diet, then the whole thing is ruined.”
“I didn’t exercise today, so screw the rest of this week.”
“This wasn’t the perfect workout, so it sucked and didn’t count.”
“I can never eat XXX food. I can only eat YYY food.”
This way of thinking will always result in disappointment & failure. Life isn’t black and white, it is full of nuance. Accepting this fact, and learning how to think accordingly will pay dividends in the long run.
Ok those are my big ones for today….
Wishing you a Happy New Year! 😁
