. . .if you buy any of them and don’t use them.
I overheard one young kid in the gym the other day telling his buddy the container of protein that he bought wasn’t doing anything for him. I also heard him say that he just took it when he could remember to take it.
It reminds me of those people who buy into those”get rich quick” programs and then ditch them when they haven’t made a truck load of money in a couple of weeks.
I see two types of people every single day in the fitness area:
1. Those who know what they want and take action to get it.
2. People who may know what they want but think it’s too much work to get it.
But during the last couple of years being a personal trainer, I’ve learned that there is even a more significant step that comes before taking action.
In fact, the first step to achieving physical fitness success would be to accept complete responsibility for where you are, right now.
You cannot and should not blame anyone at all for where you are right now.
If you’re overweight, it’s because you made it.
Tired of how you look when you look into the mirror, you are responsible.
Do not have the muscles you want or the six pack abs you’d die for?
You are the reason for all of them.
Outside of particular medical conditions or events beyond your control, you’re where you are right now due to the choices you have made.
You see, if you are blaming your current results on everything but yourself, that’s what you will keep telling yourself to the point that you truly believe you’re not at fault.
And if you really feel you’re not responsible for the present
Condition of your body, do you think you’re going to take the steps required to change it?
Probably not, you are going to continue blaming McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, the spouse, the doctor, etc.. . And you’ll continue on your endless search for fitness success.
Taking total and complete responsibility for your current
Situation is extremely powerful. The simple fact is, by claiming ownership, at the point you realize that it’s you and only you that will be the one who changes what you need changed.
Whether it’s weight loss you are after, more muscle, more
So, unlike the egg you can not unscramble, you can unscramble your physical condition if you would like to.
You are the only captain of”your body”, and you’re able to steer in any direction you want to.
