Lasting Change, i.e., REAL RESULTS that stick around.
What do you need to do?
The most common thing that people talk about is how they want to make a change in their life, for example, “everybody” wants to have a rockin’ bod, but no one wants train or eat right to get it.
One of the challenges we have in our lives is that we don’t realize the process of training ourselves. And that process of training ourselves actually feels ah-mazing once you get that initial momentum, but most people don’t.
Why? Why do so many people say, “I lost XX pounds” or “I’m on XX day of dieting and I’m doing really good”.
If you’re counting the days, it’s likely not going to be a lasting change. You’re just counting the days so you can tell people how many days you lasted.
If you want lasting change, you have to give up the idea of “trying something”. Instead, you have to DECIDE that you’re going to commit to mastering something.
What I mean by that is, most people dabble in things. They say, “I’d like to change my body”, “I’d like to change my relationship(s) with ______”, etc., but they don’t know what to do - and even if they did, they don’t have enough detail to be able to follow through.
This means you haven’t made the mental and emotional shifts in yourself to follow through - and it’s actually not that difficult, but there is a path you need to follow and it does require CONSISTENCY.
Everybody over eats, misses a workout, and feels sad or depressed sometimes, but your life is not controlled by what you do sometimes, IT’S CONTROLLED BY WHAT YOU DO CONSISTENTLY!
So how do you do that? Well, whatever you want to improve upon, you need to measure it in some way. Something that is measurable gives you feedback, and feedback is essential to making progress.
All of our success and failures in life come from little decisions, little actions, and little moments.
Failure isn’t an overnight event; it’s failure to say or do the little things, and in this example it’s failure to take care of your body.
It’s failure to invest some time into yourself so you can continue to grow rather than just reacting to the world around you; the world that’s constantly demanding your attention.
Success comes from doing the right things, and also the little things. It’s taking the time for what matters most - your body, your mind, your spirit, your emotions.
Having a plan and measuring your progress, that’s the second thing we need. You gotta commit to mastery first, but you also really need to get yourself involved in coaching/with a coach.
How we gain mastery comes from being an apprentice first, so to speak. And while that sounds easy enough, most of you still won’t get to mastery because of one crucial thing. PATIENCE. It requires a fxck-ton of patience!
You want it “right now” and not only do you NOT commit to mastery, but you rarely ever find a mentor or coach.
You think you have all the answers (been there, done that! #Guilty 🙋🏻♀️), you try a few things, and if that doesn’t work, you run to something else. (#GuiltyAgain)
If you want to improve your quality of life by leaps and bounds, you have to set yourself up to win! You have to set yourself up for the process that allows you to CONSISTENTLY grow, CONSISTENTLY enjoy your life, and CONSISTENTLY produce the results that you’re really after.
(Are you seeing a trend here?)
And it doesn’t matter what area of your life you want to change, coaching is one of the most valuable tools in the world. A coach just has a different perspective.
Think about it, the best had coaches when they were just starting out (Michael Jordan for example) and they still have coaches today!
Why? Because a coach can see what you can’t see; you’re in the forest and they are outside of it.
A coach isn’t better than you. They are there for you, they are somebody that cares deeply about your well-being, but they’re also skilled to help guide you at the moments you really need it.
