Stop waiting on motivation to start your life. Knowing the right thing is easy. But applying it is the key to continued success. Most people don’t continue their diet or lifestyle change because of fear and inconsistency. If you were to stick around long enough, you would see the results. But it takes massive action and massive patience. Here are a few tips on how to get your mind and body right.
Beginning is 90% of making a change. Start slowly with your lifestyle change and decisions and then gradually advance to incorporate the other aspects you’d like to include. Statistically speaking, it takes 21 days to form a habit. Start TODAY. Start with a three-day routine. Start with just cardio. Start with just leaving out meat in your meals. Whatever it is – start.
2. Motivation Won’t Work
“I’ve lost motivation.” You shouldn’t be relying on motivation to do whatever it is you want to do. Motivation is fluid – it comes and it goes. Nobody feels motivated all of the time. Lack of motivation won’t stop you from pursuing your lifestyle change, so push through it and reap the benefits.
3. Hold Yourself Accountable
Accountability is what will keep you going. Late night snacks and skipped workouts will form a habit, too. Make sure you’re creating habits that will help you perform better in life instead of entering a downward spiral.
Plan ahead for your lifestyle change. Make short term and long term goals for yourself so you know when you can celebrate. Set these goals up monthly and track your improvement over a 30 day period. You will feel inspired and motivated to begin the next month.
