Working in the fitness industry for over 15 years, I can say that one of the biggest mental hurdles holding people back from real success is a limiting belief system.
Maybe it was the way you were raised, or the people surrounding you, or a lack of self-confidence, or even fear. If you nurture limiting beliefs, they’ll rule your behavior and your life.
To attack your limiting belief systems, realize that you must work on strengthening your mindset first.
If your mental, emotional, and spiritual side (your inner self) is out of shape, you’ll never find the success in life you hope to find – no matter how hard you work your body.
Most people won’t take the time to do this and instead will just do the training program and nutrition tips looking for the “answer.”
These same people will get only a few weeks into the program and lose motivation, and they will be destined to fail because they never took the time to examine WHY they wanted to change in the first place and, more important, what they were willing to do to achieve that change.
You are looking for something.
Is it a feeling you’re after? Is it a look you want?
Whatever it is, it is within you.
Start to peel back the layers to get to who you really want to become.
Set aside some alone time in the next day or two to write and let your soul sing. Without considering whether it’s realistic, write down what you absolutely want to achieve during this journey.
No limits! Be very specific.
Define what becoming fit means to YOU. Mentally, physically and spiritually fit.
For some it may mean moving without pain, having enough energy to play with the grand kids, or even to get through a day without crashing on the couch afterwards.
Perhaps it is to get through the day without feeling the overwhelm of everything you need to do
...to live the life you desire
...to have peace, simplicity and balance
Spend some time with it and be true to yourself.
