One of the best ways to make a dramatic improvement in your body and your fitness level is to participate in a challenge. It is a chance to take a hard look at where you currently stand with your health, weight, and conditioning, and to set a goal with an end date for making significant changes and progress.
It’s your opportunity to produce impressive “results” and measurable “success” with the help of a fitness community.
Do you have what it takes to stick all the way through with a challenge? Will you stick with the diet plan and avoid falling for temptations? Will you show up to your workouts day after day, even when your muscles are tired and sore?
The key to your success is to be deeply disturbed by your current fitness condition. Recognize that the body you have is no longer in sync with the body that you are able to accept for yourself.
Why are you still living life in your “before” body?
Sure, you have obstacles that get in your way – your schedule, your job, your family, the weather, your knee injury from college…but ultimately you have the body that you accept.
I’m going to repeat that so it will really sink in.
You have the body that you accept.
Transform from “Before” to “After”
You may not realize it, but you already possess everything you need to succeed in a fitness challenge by transforming your body, and it all starts with taking responsibility for the body that you have today.
You are in your current shape because, until this moment, you’ve been OK with it.
Oh, I know you aren’t thrilled with it, and you even talk about what it will take to get fit again—but you haven’t changed what you are willing to accept.
Here’s how to Succeed in a Fitness Challenge in 3 steps:
Step One: Feel Disturbed
It has been said that emotion creates motion. This is essential when it comes to personal transformation. To transform your body, you must first decide that you can’t live well another day in the body you currently have.
Get your emotions stirred up. Make a list of all the reasons that you’re ready to move better, feel better, lose fat and get more fit. Get disturbed.
Step Two: Decide What You Want
Without clarity, you’ll never get where you want to go. Now that you’re disturbed with your current fitness condition, decide what the healthier body you can accept looks like.
Think in concrete and specific terms. Do you want to be able to travel well on your next vacation? Would you like to get down on the floor with your grandchildren? Drop 50 lbs or lose 8 inches from your waist? What is your ultimate goal?
Get a clear picture in your mind of what you’ll look like in your “after” healthy picture. The more specific the better.
Step Three: Take Action
The time spent between your inspiration (now) and taking action determines whether you will succeed or fail. Don’t allow yourself to get stuck between inspiration and action—there is always something that you can do immediately.
