The Master Skill of Success

Well,  the first week of the new year is here. Here is a quick post on how to reach your goals. At the bottom of this post I already shared with you my goals and resolutions for this year. Please share with me some of yours.

In a famous study in 1953, the graduating seniors of a major university were asked if they had written goals, and plans to achieve them, after they left the university.

It turned out that 3 percent had written goals and plans. 14 percent had goals but they were not written. The other 83 percent had no goals or plans at all, aside from getting out of university and going on vacation that summer.

Twenty years later in 1973, they followed up on the graduates in this study and asked them, among other things, about their financial situations. They found that the 3 percent of students who had clear, written goals and plans upon graduation were worth more than the entire 97 percent of graduates put together.

What does this experiment have to do with your fitness goals?

EVERYTHING

You see before we start an exercise plan, we must write down our fitness goals.

This automatically starts to program your subconscious towards achieving your goal.

Imagine that you have two drivers, each with a brand new Mercedes-Benz.

They both set to travel across the country toward a distant destination.

One sets off with no road map, navigation, nothing.

The second driver takes the time to plan his trip carefully using road map, navigation and getting advice from people who have traveled that path.

Which driver do you think will reach his destination on schedule??

The first driver might NOT even reach his destination.

Your fitness goals are pretty much the same.

People with clear, specific goals and plans that they work from each day, accomplish on the average, ten times the result as others who don’t have a clear idea of where they are going or when they want to get there.

Getting Your Mind Right

Over the past 18 years I have helped thousands of my clients transform
their bodies.

Here is what I’ve discovered

In my opinion our mind is the most important factor when it comes
to getting in shape or achieving any goal for that matter.

Now, there are thousands of books out there about new ways to exercise and I am not even going to start about books on diet. It seems like everybody and their mother has a diet book.

But then that got me thinking; what other aspects of our lives are controlled by our mind?

The answer: EVERYTHING!


If you tell yourself you will always “struggle” with weight loss, you will. You’re right.

If you believe you are “too busy” to exercise and things aren’t going to change. You won’t make the time – you WILL be too busy.

“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re probably right.” Zig Ziglar

How can we make that adjustment – what we call “the mindset shift?” We need this to be successful on all levels: personal, financial, physical, mental, etc.

At Fitness Concepts, we refrain from using words such as “I hope,” “I can’t,” “I wish I could.” There is nothing positive about these statements.

Think about your own life. A UCLA (Boo I am a Penn State and USC fan) study showed that kids heard the word “no” over FOUR HUNDRED times each day.

Think that influences their thoughts? Of course.

For instance, when things go wrong, instead of criticizing yourself, work on focusing on the positive, your strengths, and talents.

Try reframing your thoughts:

Instead of: “I can’t be successful at weight loss, I have tried so many times in the past-I just wish I looked like my friends.”

Try: “I am in complete control of my body and fueling it with the most nutritious foods that will allow me to feel even better and lose fat.”

Imagine thinking THAT each morning vs. the first statement!

We simply need a mindset shift.

Our minds play funny games and it’s often because of the continual negative messages we hear and the blame we put on others. But in reality, no one can “fix” you, but you.

But just like you are in control of the foods you put into your body, to fuel your muscles, cells, etc, think of the messages you read and hear as fuel for your brain.

Your brain needs the right fuel too.

Feed it junk, and you’ll have junky thoughts. Die fat or get tough by Steve Siebold is the best books out there for helping with that mindset shift.

Leave me a comment and let me know what do you feed your brain. I am always looking for ways to learn from others. Also if you like this post share it with your Facebook friends simply by clicking on the Facebook emblem below.
