Dedication and Consistency
I have written about “Motivation and Dedication” and the difference. (click the link to read that article)
Now that you are working on the dedication part it is time to plan and work on the consistency part, as they go hand and hand. If you want success you need to simple daily disciplines. You need to plan this and dedicate yourself to follow through on these things.
When I meet with clients we talk and set up goals to achieve but as in the article link above, goals are dreams until you have a plan and take action. After we set up goals we go through an action plan. This is where the dedication and consistency comes into play. There is no magic diet, no magic workout program, no magic pill or magic potion. There is just math, science and education. It doesn’t matter your goal people have achieved it and more. They did it with math, science and education added with dedication and consistency.
If you have a plan in place that will get you the results you desire and you don’t take action your goals will just stay a dream. You can read this article “Your personal program” here to start getting an understanding of what you need to do.
After a client and I discussed goals we go into the math, science and education part as in the article above to put together their plan. Once we have the specific needs to achieve to accomplish their goal we lay out the consistency part. We set up monthly, weekly and daily goals of consistency to achieve the goal at hand. If your goal is to have ripped abs, I’m sorry to tell you 6 minute abs 3 times a week isn’t going to get you there. Running a marathon isn’t going to be accomplish by walking 20 minutes at lunch every day. Deadlift 500+ lbs isn’t going to happen by doing 5 lbs curls a bunch of times. Rehabbing an injury isn’t going to happen by sitting on the couch. Improving mobility isn’t going to happen by sitting at your desk at work all day. All of this seems very obvious doesn’t it? This is the exact approach to many clients that first walk into our facility, it is not their fault but it is the human condition, we want everything now!
Any goal is going to be accomplished by doing small things daily. This is when our clients really succeed!!! Have a plan in place, follow it daily and work towards that goal daily. We do have a lot of clients that just want to get their butt kicked and not think about their workout and that is completely awesome! If you do have a goal you want to achieve we need to sit down and put it all together. Then the dedication and consistency on your part comes into play. We are here to walk with you on this journey and help keep you accountable and on track but ultimately it comes down to what you are doing when you are not with us that determines your results.
Contact us to sit down and set up this plan so you can get to crushing your goals!
“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t” – Jerry Rice
“ A really good teacher is never a giver of “truth,” but rather a guide, a pioneer to the truth that the student must discover for himself. A good teacher, therefore, studies each student individually and encourages the student to explore himself, both internally and externally, until, ultimately, the student is integrated with his being. A good teacher is a catalyst” – Bruce Lee
