Today I wanted to share a few things I’ve learned from the clients who’ve had the most success in my fitness program.
They’re all different women from different backgrounds, with different professions, and different family dynamics.
However, they all seem to follow the same 5 Rules:
Slow Progress > Fast Failure: We have become accustomed instant deliveries and instant results and while it works in many facets of our lives, it doesn’t ring true for our bodies.
Recognizing that progress happens slowly and consistently over time is one of the most important concepts you can embrace.
Enjoy The Process: Sure, it’s important to have goals and periodically evaluate your progress and reassess, but it’s better to stay in the moment.
Enjoy today’s workout and the women you’re doing it wit!
Get the most out of the exercise you’re doing now, really focus on what is in front of you … instead of impatiently looking forward to the next thing. A consistent process yields progress without having to obsess about results.
Don’t Compare: Oh, so dangerous to our psyche. You were made to be unique and you have your own journey. You don’t know what other women have been through to get where they are. You’re here for you, and to derive positive energy from others … not to compare yourself to them. We’re all different. Embrace it.
Embrace Setbacks: There will be bad days. Things will go wrong. You will get into a rut. Remember that these setbacks needed to happen in order for you to achieve your next level of success.
Be Grateful: Gratitude is one of the most important emotions we can experience. Be grateful for all of it- the good and the bad because it makes you who you are. Every day, Audrey and I write down 10 things we are grateful for. It sets the day. Try it.
Given that it’s August, there are 5 months left in 2022.
I’d like to propose that you focus on one of the above rules each month through the end of the year.
If you can follow these 5 rules with 80% consistently, you’ll be ready for a massive breakthrough with your fitness – and your life.
