Do you have a particular goal in mind? Are you working toward that goal?
I mean really truly doing everything in your power to achieve what it is you want to accomplish.
There’s no room in this world to slack your way through life if success is to be reached.
Success isn’t given, it is earned through working hard and never giving up on yourself.
When you really want something, you’ve got to pour yourself into it. Give it your all.
I promise, you are capable of so much more than you could ever dream.
It’s not just about training. It’s about living a lifestyle that is in line with what you want to achieve. Nutrition, sleep, habits at home, and at work, doing what you know is right, being an example for others.
When you live in a way that aligns with your goal, you’ll probably start to notice other parts of your life changing as well. It’s funny how purposeful training bleeds into everything else we do.
Now, your children, wife, or friends begin to see the changes your making. They notice a new attitude. They see that you will settle for nothing less than what it is you set out to do. Look at you! You’re setting the example for people around you.
Now, maybe your starting to change things in other people’s lives. Maybe your giving them the confidence to believe in themselves. The idea that maybe they can begin to change too.
Build a road map to your success..
So write your goal down, whatever it is. New squat pr, getting a promotion at work, maybe your goal is just to be the example in your house. All of these thing require working hard and not giving up in yourself. Both are simple, but not easy tasks.
Now you know two things for certain:
- Where you are today
- Where you want to be
So look at that final product and reverse engineer it all the way back to today. This will help you plan each step of the way.
Set mini goals… daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. Do everything you can to hit those mini goals. Small bits of work add up over time.
If your goal is a 400# squat, set a time frame. Say, 8 weeks. Now, figure out what sort of weight you need to hit for progression each week so at the end of 8 weeks you destroy 400 pounds.
Maybe you you just want to be the example for your kids. Write down the values and beliefs you want to instill in your children.
Figure out how you can exemplify those values every day. Teach by doing. Show them each day how to live the life you want for them.
Over time, they’ll begin to do what you do, say what you say, and see things the way you see them. But the key is living for that goal.
Maybe you’ll find some positive change in yourself also. Progression is always good.
One day you’ll look back on today and realize just how far you’ve come, and how you really are capable of reaching what you set out to accomplish.
Think about how what you do everyday and how that brings you closer to your goal. Cut out what’s keeping you from getting there.
Start by training like a savage.
