Without setting a clear goal, you always see that achieving makes smaller steps than those who setting goals.
“I would really like to drop some weight off.”
You can easily fabricate enough reasons, excuses and justification in your head, why you shouldn’t exercise today or why you’ve earned that beer and pizza. Secretly, inside, you do really know that you keep fooling yourself; but at that time it doesn’t matter. Probably you tell yourself, “Tomorrow I’m going to work extra hard to the bucket,” or “I’m going on Monday or eat healthier.” Yeah buddy, nice intentions. But the chances that you really going to do is extremely small. It gives nothing, only if it comes at the expense of your objective and that is unfortunate.
You must, therefore, ask yourself whether that goal is realizable. Often people say, “I’d would really like to lose some weight.” Or “I actually really need more sports. In both recognizable examples is the number of words that guarantees a fiasco: Would, actually, and should. The first two words say something about it without effort and dedication never going to happen, and the latter means that you will have to force yourself to do so. We both know that something as an obligation which feels like to be postponed to the afterlife. When you think this way, your excuses eventually figure out because other virtues would be more important than your target.
So what can you do to counteract this?
First, set a root target and make this goal concrete. ’15 July I will have a six-pack with a fat percentage of 10. I’m going to start now with this nutrition and training. More concretely, you can hardly do, right? Next you consistently work on your mind objective. The important thing is that you keep your eyes on the long-term remuneration; without making excuses and exceptions. If you keep this progression, success us inevitable. With a poor but consistent plan you’ll see results, you’ll miss some progression but consistent and disciplined proceed is expected.
It is definitely not easy to win the battle of the devil on your shoulder. All the “sins” which they submit to you are in fact very tempting. But just when you go against it here by disciplined and structured to choose the most difficult path, you backbone, character and of course build a damn nice body.
