Consistency

“There is no magic to awesome outcomes.  Whether we’re looking to build a great career, a great relationship, great health, or a great life, it’s all about consistent action over time.  It’s about coming back after things blow up, over and over and over.  Because they will, and we’ll need a way to reclaim our daily routine.” ~ Jonathan Fields, How To Live A Good Life

5 Habits That Will Help You Finally Stick to Your Workout Routine.

5 Habits That Will Help You Finally Stick to Your Workout Routine.

Coming up with a brilliant workout routine isn’t the hard part.

Google will give you millions of suggestions.

It’s following through and staying consistent that’s the hard part.

I have been lifting weights and following different workout routines on and off for over a decade now.

Like so many others in pursuit of a healthier, stronger, leaner lifestyle, I’ve followed the fads, jumped on the trends, and changed my mind more times than I can remember.

I’ve google searched, joined gyms, joined forces with other motivated individuals, gotten advice from personal trainers, bought DVDs, bought equipment, built machines…

…And have, each time, faded out after a while – regardless of how fool-proof my plan was.

I’d always start off strong, thinking that this (whatever this was at the time) was the routine that would stick for sure!

But, of course, I’d follow it for a few weeks, become complacent with my efforts or results (…or come up with some other brilliant excuse on why I didn’t want to continue) and would eventually slow to a halt and find myself – no more than a few days later – back in good ol’ square one.

“One way to develop faith and confidence is simply to practice using it. If I were to ask you whether you’re confident that you can tie your own shoes, I’m sure you could tell me with perfect confidence that you can.  Why?  Only because you’ve done it thousands of times!  So practice confidence by using it consistently, and you’ll be amazed at the dividends it reaps in every area of your life.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

You Realize That There is Going To Be A Day When You Won’t Want To Go To The Gym, Right?

Too sleepy to go to the gym

…Or a day when you really won’t feel like writing or doing your work?

…Or a day when instead of reading that book you’re going to want to watch TV, check Facebook, read e-mail, or do pretty much anything else, right?

I think we have all been there before and are very familiar with the feelings of laziness, procrastination, and boredom.

So why not plan ahead for those days, now, so that when you’re feeling low, like procrastinating, and/or bored you have a plan?  

Sounds like a successful initiative to me. Continue reading

“Really successful people feel the same boredom and the same lack of motivation that everyone else feels. They don’t have some magic pill that makes them feel ready and inspired every day. But the difference is that the people who stick with their goals don’t let their emotions determine their actions. Top performers still find a way to show up, to work through the boredom, and to embrace the daily practice that is required to achieve their goals.” ~ James Clear, Blog

“The toughest thing about success is that you’ve got to keep on being a success. Talent is only a starting point in this business. You’ve got to keep on working that talent. Someday I’ll reach for it and it won’t be there.” ~ Irving Berlin
