Do you ever find yourself blaming other factors, like your environment or your job, for the way certain aspects of your life have turned out? Like your health for example. Do you not have enough time to exercise or the right equipment? Is your diet poor because there are no good food options when you are on the road?
The questions above come from a reactionary way of thinking. It places the responsibility for your health, fitness and life in someone else’s hands. This line of thinking always looks for something to blame. It holds you back from change because there’s always some external force keeping you from achieving your goals. It gives you an excuse to fall back on when things don’t go as planned.
In contrast, a proactive way of thinking looks at the areas you can control. It helps you take responsibility for your actions and the outcomes associated with those actions. It helps you take action and lead the charge. We know that your outcomes aren’t tied to anyone else or random circumstances.
Life is a constant series of events that you can’t predict. How you respond to those events, and how you prepare for those challenges, is what you can control. Over the course of this program, we want to help you shape your way of thinking to be more proactive. We want you to assess what areas in your life you can control. How can you make time? What activities do you currently engage in that waste your time, and don’t make you better? Would you be better off to take a 15 min walk instead of watching another YouTube video? How can you alter your routine to eat a little healthier? We want you to go on the attack.
As you make positive changes in your life, get more fit and improve your nutrition it will give you momentum. You will be seeking out ways to get in a few more minutes of exercise and some of those food temptations are going to start being easier to say no to. When you take charge and control the areas that you are capable of, you turn into a powerful force.
