Get Fit — Habits Can Make You or Break You
What is a guiding factor in your effort to get lean? Your Habits
YOUR ARE A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD
You are where you are right now partly from the habits you have practiced. Habits can take you further from or closer to your goal. You need to start feeding the good habits and starving the bad ones. You will be pulled toward whatever habit you feed. When you start a new habit and continue practicing it, you train the clusters of neural connections in your brain to repeat that action, whether positive or negative. When you develop the paved roads in your brain for empowering positive habits, you will naturally change your body and your life.
We have been given the ability to form whatever habits we choose. We are not like animals that just live on instinct. We control, through our repeated actions, what becomes our habits and what leads us to our results. Change your actions and you will change your habits.
HOW PEOPLE USUALLY THINK
Most people usually operate at at the level of wanting more for less. They want much more improvement in much less time with the lowest possible amount effort or money. It is normal to want to be efficient; however, you do need to be realistic. Some people want to lose x amount of weight by working out only one time per week and not changing anything else they do. Irrational or irresponsible people want something for nothing. This gets too many people in trouble with their health, finances, and relationships.
It’s no wonder that the advertisements promising wild results, such as 10 pounds of weight loss in 2 days and six-pack abs in few minutes a day actually get business.
YOUR NEW IDENTITY
A large part of evolving to the next best version of yourself is to choose a better identity (how you see yourself). There are numerous ways to change how you perceive yourself. One of the keys is to take the actions that your ideal self would take.
You must take the actions to get the results. Knowledge is powerless without action.
When you perform the actions that a healthy, lean person takes, those actions make you feel leaner and healthier immediately. You will naturally start to associate with different people, read different material, and notice different things in life–all because you now have the mind-set of a healthy, lean person.
NO MORE SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF
When choosing what program to follow, consider going with a plan that covers the essentials and leaves out the minutia. It does not make sense to put energy into items that make a one percent difference and miss the components and strategies that give 99% of the results.
