Famous author Zig Ziglar once famously remarked,
‘People don’t tend to wander around and then find themselvesat the top of Mount Everest’.
Creating fitness goals and setting them can seem tedious but is the absolute KEY to your success! You need to have a step-by-step process of achieving your major goal; this step-by-step process removes any fear and uncertainty that you may have. So crush your fitness goals after reading this perfect plan.
Goals are especially powerful if they are time-based, measurable and concrete. This means they need to have a specific start and finish date, goals need to be measured, for example losing 5% body fat in 10 weeks – and it needs to be either written in a journal, covered on the fridge or pinup board or written as the home screen for your phone.
Tell your friends, family and coworkers about your goals. Not only for support but also going public will mean you are more likely to stick to your plan. Accountability is key!
Those who end up not only achieving their goals but also maintaining their goals remind themselves of the benefits associated with achieving their goals. For example, remind yourself, why will your life be better after achieving your goal? Finally feeling unashamed of your body when in a swimsuit or naked.
Don’t focus on how failure to change will result in having to endure the negative aspects of your current situation.
You will be creating sub goals and for each of your sub goals achieved it will put you a step closer towards achieving your overall goal.
You will be rewarded for each sub goal but it can never conflict and contradict with the overall goal itself, i.e. going on an ice cream and pizza binge because you have had a good week of healthy eating won’t help you in achieving your goal. Try getting a massage instead something that feels good and will also benefit you.
