Results not typical – overcoming slow progress

What if slow progress was actually normal?

I had an interesting conversation with my client the other day. She emailed me her progress for the week and talked about how failing to plan her week lead to failure in the week.

She felt her progress was slow and wasn’t as good as she wanted for the week. However, she did see the positive and said “slow progress is still progress”.

At first I thought: Very true!

I thought it was a great positive mindset about the week. It turned a negative into a positive. This is good right?!

But then I thought a little further.  Continue reading “Results not typical – overcoming slow progress”

Work, the variable of success

We are 3 weeks into January and the sad reality is that many people have already “fallen off the wagon” from their new year resolutions.

This might even be you.

You’ve missed a day, two or even a week already because life is busy and pulling you in every direction.

It seems like you’ve failed already.

However, that just isn’t true. It’s only a failure if you let it be.

You may have failed last week or maybe even yesterday but today is a new day. You get a new chance to get up and put in the work.

The difference between success and failure is how hard you work.

If you give up and stop working, of course that’s a failure. If you’re wondering why you’re not seeing results but you’re putting in minimal effort, stop worrying. It’s the effort, you need to work harder.

Even if you’re working your ass off and still not seeing results, you still have to work harder.

I’m sorry if that’s not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth.

How hard you’re working is the variable dictating wether or not you will be successful.

If you’re struggling, take a step back, review your goal and ask yourself what it’s worth. Is it worth the effort?

If not, that’s ok, but you need to find something else. If yes, then shut the eff up, quit whining and get to work!

If you need a little guidance to help you fit it all in let me know, I’m here to help!

Do your short term actions match your long term goals?

What’s your long term vision of your health?

Do you want to be healthy for the next week? 3 months? 12 months? 3 years? 50 years?

Seriously, this is no joke.

When I ask people this question, most people answer in the 50+ range or “the rest of my life”.

Like it’s a no brainer.

However, their short term actions don’t match their long term goals.

They are only focused on a short term goal, and if they don’t see results within weeks “it’s not working” and they give up.

Sound familiar?

People want long term results but only have a short term plan.

Do me a favor: comment below with your 3 month, 12 month, 36 month and 30+ year vision of your health.

Then let me know if that activity has changed your perspecitve.

The Struggle is Real!

Ever seen an Instagram post or Tweet talking about “the struggle is real”?

It often seems like it’s a way to say “oh, look at how hard this is for me”. Or maybe it’s just an excuse as to why they aren’t succeeding.

Either way it seems like it’s a bad thing that there is a struggle.

And to be honest, that used to be me. I hated the struggle.

However, over the past year or two, I’ve taken a new perspective on the struggle: Continue reading “The Struggle is Real!”
