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!

You know your goal, but are you missing the most important part?

Most people have a goal in mind when they start their fitness journey.

Some goals are super specific, others are more general, but you always have a target you want to reach.

However, what I see missing for a lot of people is a clear recognition of where they are starting from.

Let me explain with an analogy:  Continue reading “You know your goal, but are you missing the most important part?”

Your New Year Resolution Won’t Last! – Here’s why

Your New Year Resolution Won't Last, but that's ok!

It’s January. What that means for a TON of people is that their new year resolution has started.

It’s an exciting time with tons of visions, tons of motivation and tons of goals!

The next exciting time will be when you fail!

I say that failing is exciting because it really can be if you’ve set yourself up for success and planned for that failure. Most people fear the point of failure but guess what – it’s going to happen.

You are going to fail.

I guarantee it and it’s okay.

The point here is to help you realize it will happen and in fact it should! Instead of setting yourself up problems and struggle with failure by avoiding or denying that it will happen, don’t deny it, know it will and plan for it.

How many times have you started something and been perfect at it from the start? Ya, probably not many.

Also, how many times have you really grown or learned from something that was easy the whole time and didn’t push your limits? Ya, probably not many.

When I work with my clients, I always have a plan for when they fail.

It’s never been a matter of if they will fail, it’s when.

I’m constantly pushing them and challenging what they can handle. I’m actually trying to find that point where they’ll fail. From there, we re-work the plan, pick them back up and carry on our merry way.

Your New Year Resolution Won't Last!

So this year, if you’re working on a new year resolution, do yourself a favour and plan for your failure. As the old saying goes: “it’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up”.

If you truly want to make this a new YEAR resolution and not just a new JANUARY resolution, plan to pick yourself up. A lot.
