Getting Back Up
Many people start out on a new endeavour. They are determined to not only start out on their new journey, but also achieve the success they want. Somewhere along the way, they can get side tracked. Changing your mindset for success is the key to achieve your goals.
sHave you heard the saying, “If you set your mind, you can achieve whatever you want in life?” This is also true for losing weight and gaining lean muscle. Regardless of if you failed in the past, these goals can be achieved. The definition of success can be achieved by not giving up.
Many people have begun a New Year’s resolution and joined a gym. He/she may be motivated initially. A few weeks later he/she doesn’t ever go back while still paying for the membership. That was me. I would lose some weight, then make excuses why I couldn’t get motivated to go to the gym. I’d soon gain weight and feel even worse about myself. Once I made the decision to set my mind for success, I have never looked and felt better. Now that my mind is made up, I will continue to train and enjoy the journey.
Don’t quit. Don’t get discouraged. Don’t lose heart. Simply get back up again if you have fallen and start shredding that unwanted belly fat. Make this year better than last year.
Programming Your Mind for Success
Your mind is a blank canvas that requires direction. The mind can be programmed like a computer. The problem for most of us could be that the program that is being uploaded can distort by negative thoughts.
The truth is that you have more control over your own destiny than you have ever thought possible. When you are sure about something, you will be very passionate about your opinion regardless of opposition. Even if the evidence around you suggests that what you are not correct, you will still argue your point in confidence. You have more self-control and can change your mind and set it for success. All you need to do is believe in yourself.
One of the greatest keys to long term success is taking action and being consistent with small achievable steps. Once you have a goal in mind, you will need to have some clear steps on how you will achieve your goal. As mentioned in a previous post, goal setting is vital to long term success. Setting SMART goals enables you to have clear direction in which your mind will be traveling in. Clear direction will make the journey easier as we all want simplicity in our busy and complicated lives. This will mean that you will have a step by step road map laid out for you. All you need to do is follow the steps that you have and achieve your goals.
Never Giving Up
In the age of instant gratification, we want to see immediate results overnight. Truth is, you didn’t get overweight overnight. Same is true with fat loss. It takes time to not only visually see results. Also realize things are also changing internally such as your organs having to adjust to the change in your body.
So if you haven’t seen any results after three weeks of hard work and clean eating, hang in there. Things are happening and change is occurring. Anything good in life takes time to develop. You are on the way to having your own best fat loss journey.
