It’s that time of the year. People have already started a 6/8 week challenge or are about to take part in one. It sounds so appealing… Join a challenge, lose weight and then look great! But are you Committed?
The reality is that a lot of people don’t know what they are signing up for and probably won’t reach the goals they are aiming for. Why? Because they aren’t committed to their goal. I recently went to a seminar in which Australia’s top bodybuilding spoke along with a well-known motivational speaker. When asked why I was there I replied “I need more motivation to achieve my goals”. As the seminar went on I realised that it was not motivation I was looking for, I needed to stay more COMMITTED to my goals. Since then I have taken steps and made changes so I can stay more committed to my goals without having to SEARCH for motivation.
IT IS HARD WORK
Losing Weight or Gaining Muscle is hard work. It doesn’t matter what genetics you have, what substances you take, you physically still must do the work and restrict yourself from putting crap food in your mouth. If you have not fully committed to the plan…you will fail.
If you are committed to a goal, discipline must be earnt. It does not come easy but I have found that once it has been obtained it can be “easier” to maintain. Constantly ask yourself do I “NEED” this or do I “WANT” this. When it comes to cheating on the diet or skipping the gym ask yourself the “NEED OR WANT” question which should then make you accountable for your actions.
GET RID OR RESTRICT SOCIAL MEDIA
Social Media is by far one of the worst things when it comes to people’ self-esteem. They see other people looking great and instantly compare themselves. It is such a fake and superficial platform that can demotivate and make people lose sight of the goals they have committed to.
TAKE SMALL STEPS
It can be better for some people to take small steps when changing their eating or training routines. Jumping straight into an 8-week challenge suits some people where as others work better by gradually making changes and adjusting as the weeks go on. Find out what suits you best then apply this to the goals you have committed to.
USE PERSONAL TRAINERS/COACH’S
Most people in these positions are committed. They follow a regime or lifestyle that requires them to be committed to certain goals which allows them to have information that you can benefit from. Find one that suits your goals whether it be body shape related, interest/goal related or qualification based.
SUPPORT FROM FAMILY FRIENDS
The people around you need to be aware of the goals you have committed to. This means letting the guys know that you can’t go to the pub, telling mum that you must give the chocolate cake a miss or even getting your partner on board as you may have to eat different to them at dinner. The more friends and family you have on board the less explaining you will have to do.
At the end of the day it is as simple as this:
If you are 100% committed to the goal, you will put 100% into the process, giving you 100% results.
If you can only be 75% committed, then your results will show 75% commitment.
If you have a goal in mind or have tried before and failed I am more than happy to map out a plan for you. Through years of trial and error with many different clients with all different body shapes I have a few tricks up my sleeve that can help. The more committed you are, the more committed I will be in helping you.
