2011 was the year I first started lifting weights. I was in college at Arizona State. (Yes, it’s a big party school – but aren’t they all?) Anyway, I literally had no idea what I was doing but I did finally understand that lifting weights is how you actually get ‘toned’. During this time of fighting through my fear of the weight room and hoping nobody was watching me while I try to figure things out, I thought about how great it would be to have a trainer show me the ropes of lifting weights so I could achieve the results I wanted with confidence.
But here’s the thing, knowledge and confidence are actually a very small piece of the puzzle when it comes to being successful with your goals. Action is the secret sauce. You see, I literally had it in my head that the simple act of hiring a trainer was going to get me the results I wanted.
Thinking back to my mindset at the time, I was only focused on 1. getting proper direction and 2. getting a certain result. There’s a VERY large gap between the two that I was failing to acknowledge.
Knowledge is only power if you use it. Results are only achievable if you DO THE WORK. Which leads me to sharing what all of my most successful clients have in common:
It’s not rocket science, it’s literally just a matter of doing the work you know you need to do. Your mind actually needs to be your strongest muscle here.
