In our last blog post, we spoke about the importance of consistency to your health & fitness success.
Consistency really is the secret ingredient and below I’ve outlined 3 ways to help you be more consistent in this area of your life.
See it: Define exactly what it is you want to be consistent on.
For example instead of saying that “I’ll start exercising,” say that, “I’ll do the 7am session on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.”
And instead of, “I’ll start eating healthy,” say that, “I’ll eat XX number of calories per day divided into 5 small meals.”
The more specific the better!
Keep in mind that you are defining your actions – not your outcome.
Don’t use this step to determine what size dress or belt size you want to fit into.
That outcome is a byproduct of you consistently doing the actions!
Just clearly define the actions that you need to be consistent on.
Feel it: Now that you’ve determined the actions needed, let’s think about that outcome and clearly define it.
What will you look like?
What will that new body feel like?
How will your friends and family respond to the new you?
It’s time to get your emotions all tied up in your quest.
Daydream about getting to that outcome, feel it, emotionally take ownership of the idea of owning it.
Do it: You’re clear about what you want. You feel invested in getting the results.
Now go about the business of taking consistent action toward your goal.
Yes, this sounds simple, and it is simple.
Be consistent and you’ll soon strike gold.
