Having been in the fitness industry for several years now, I’ve seen a lot of success stories but I’ve also seen a lot of people fall short of what they’re capable of and give up on themselves.
I feel this comes down to one key difference around our mindset in the actions we take or don’t take.
Let me explain…
When you have an experience like trying on clothes, seeing yourself in the mirror, or some other type of triggered event that makes you declare that you’re going to get back in shape, it’s very easy to feel determined and motivated in that moment.
You make the plan – “Monday, I’m making it happen!” or “Once the kids go back to school, or after the holidays it’s all about getting healthy!” or “I’m going to start making better choices as soon as I get back from vacation.”
What’s happened is that you have felt PAIN in the moment that has led you to know something has to “change”, but the delayed action – knowing you don’t have to make changes now – has heightened your motivation.
But when the time and day to act comes, it’s your feelings within your mind that ultimately rule.
You wake up and realize how tired you are, how little motivation you have, how many other,
more important things you should really do.
The gym shoes and clothes never make it on. A day passes and then a week and then a month.
The cycle repeats.
Does this sound familiar?
Here’s what you need to know…
You MUST act on PROMISES you make to yourself in those trigger moments versus how you FEEL when it’s time to follow through with action.
So, the next time you feel a trigger moment that leads to a promise for change, take action immediately. Remember, the feelings you experience in the moment when it’s time for action will likely never be the most supportive of the changes you need to make, BUT…
you should ACT ANYWAY. This is the only path to change.
