How To Be Consistent With Any Goal

Good afternoon my friend.

I hope you had a great weekend.

I know I did.

The Perks of turning clients into friends.

Saturday night saw us having pretty much half a cow and lots of red wine.

Anywhooo.

So todays topic as I’m sure you have gathered is about Consistency.

Consistency may not sound as sexy as perfection and you may not be remembered for all of eternity for being consistent but it will see you reach and possibly exceed your perfect performance.

 
So to help you get started here are a few steps you can take.

If it seems bit overwhelming then just take the one that you feel will have the greatest impact.

A visual reminder:

Whenever you read one of those self-help books (How To Win Friends & Influence people.) they all suggest you write down your goal and definitely if it’s good enough for them it’s certainly good enough for us. But take it further, and write it everywhere; in your phone, on your laptop, in your car. The truth is, a visual reminder at best can be a powerful trigger to keep you on course when you really need it and seeing it when you find yourself scrolling your day away on Facebook can be the kick up the ass you need.

Two steps forward and one step back, is progress:

Achieving consistency is as much about the journey as the outcome. Sometimes on that journey you’ll want to take a day off, have one less rep, lie in a little longer or want to slap your coach in the face. And honestly, it’s okay to feel that way. Consistency isn’t about giving 10/10 every single time. That’s impossible, and a fast way to burnout.

Consistency is giving 7/10 as often as possible and making sure that when you do inevitably dip, your standard drops from a 7/10 to a 5/10 rather than from a 10/10 to a 2/101. Both are 12/20 but one lends more to progress and is amended by small tweaks. Consistency is setting your alarm for 6:30am, planning to be on the road running at 6:45am and still getting up and running even if you’ve overslept rather than pulling the pin.

People are idiots:

Surround yourself with individuals who know what your goal is and those who will happily keep you in check without slapping a cream egg out of your hand. In saying that, remember the vast majority of people are idiots and their opinions really don’t matter.

Be self-motivated:

Weak-minded people perform to prove others wrong or make others happy. This typically results in them turning around and calling it quits once they’ve reached their goal.

Strong-minded people strive to be better than anyone else. However, they stagnate once they are at the pinnacle because there is no one else left to challenge. Elite achievers on the other hand are constantly trying to be better than they were yesterday. Essentially they do it for themselves.

I hope this has gave you some Monday Motivation and you start mapping things out for yourself.

As always If you need some help or want to kickstart your fat loss journey then lets have a conversation, I would love to hear from you.
