Goals Take Time (Water Them)

Goals Take Time

(Water Them)

img_3093

A lot of questions have been coming up about breaking through plateaus and getting results quicker. A lot of times they’re about the frustration that comes along with not hitting goals quickly enough. We live in a “have it now” society, so it’s real easy to fall into this trap:

1) Set your fitness goal
2) See some results
3) Hit a plateau
4) Get pisssed about it
5) Quit

Working on this farm has taught, and continues to teach me a lot. And one of the most helpful lessons I keep learning is this:

“Be patient. Crops don’t grow overnight. Water them and care for them over time.”

When you set your Fitness goal, you’re planting a seed. It’s just an idea that COULD become something. Just like the farmer plants a crop. The seed has the intention of becoming something. YOU have the intention of being in shape, strong, healthy, and happy. The crop seed has the intention to become a strong plant that produces fruit.

When you plant that seed… that idea… You gotta remember- you’re the farmer in that greenhouse. You’re taking trips out to it every day to make sure the conditions are right. This means taking an active approach in your Fitness, learning, and enjoying the process.

This is why I have clients read up on specific subjects, learn, and talk about them. The aim is to BECOME the process- just like the farmer caring for the crop.

The Farmer’s Art

The Farmer has a routine with those crops he planted (the ones above take a short time… about 90 days). He goes out and adjusts temperatures, turns water on and off, checks the soil, pulls weeds, etc. He’s making sure that when the plant really starts growing, the surrounding conditions are just right.

So when you feel like you’re not seeing results or making progress, CONTINUE practicing. Keep learning about Exercise, Nutrition, and all those Mindset techniques. Stay involved in the process and find ways to enjoy it. Why? Well, if you don’t, you’ll quit.

 The best food is grown organically, over the course of months, with proper care. This is how you get the BEST results. And the farmer knows this- with patience, consistency, care, and awareness, the farmer gets nutrition food from a tiny seed he planted MONTHS ago.

ENJOY IT

Fitness is fitness. If you get that six pack, you’ll have reached a goal… but you’ll set another one. If you achieve that perfect physique, same thing. What makes a difference is that process you underwent to get there and how much you enjoyed it.

Take pride in your fitness journey and love it all- the times you’re making progress AND the times you’re not. Keep learning and getting better. As long as you practice that, you’ll keep yourself motivated and inspired.

KEEP WATERING YOUR GOALS

MAINTAIN MOMENTUM: Travel & Get Stronger

MAINTAIN MOMENTUM

Travel & Get Stronger

AW YEAH. There’s a set of questions and common sticking point that comes up all the time- and it involves losing progress. Specifically on vacation.

Here the basic issue: “I get frustrated with myself when I lose progress over vacation. Then it takes a while for me to get back on track when vacation is over…”

***(If you’ve lost momentum and need to get back on track, schedule a Skype coaching session now! TrainHardLiveRight@gmail.com)

To answer this set of questions, I recorded a video while I was in Maine. In the video, I go over the ONE thing you can do to completely overcome this common obstacle.

If your vacation involves lack of exercise and crazy, care free eating… it’s all good. But if that causes guilt and frustration when you lose progress, you gotta work with it.

And luckily, it’s easy to work with. Here it is: Use the Lever Effect. 

The Lever Effect is the coaching method I use to show you how to change just ONE habit or part of your day in order to create big change and make progress…

When you’re on vacation, you can do exactly that- just choose ONE thing that’s in line with your fitness goals.

For General Fitness:

- Jog in the morning
– Meditate at night
– Visualize and write out your goals
– Drink a lot of water

ENJOYMENT:

There’s a Flow State you can reach when you work toward your goals AND enjoy the process. Doing this on vacation will give you a gigantic sense of fulfilment…

At the end of the day, we’re after progress right? We want our hard work to pay off. It’s good to not give a fuck on vacation (and in general), but if it’s gonna cause that progress train to stop, use that remedy: Just discipline yourself to do ONE thing in alignment with your goals. Practicing that discipline will also help you to work with and improve other areas of your Life.
