When I help people achieve their goals, I see some success and some failure. But why does everyone fail? Even when I use the same principles with everyone I help. There are two scenarios that I see happening: one where the goal is set, and the other where the person works on the goal, but does not reach it.
Although many factors can come into play, I believe that the key factor that influences success in the world of fitness is belief. We have to believe in ourselves and in what we do. We have to believe in ourselves and in how we live.
Do you ever feel like giving up on something you believe in? This is the reason why believing in yourself is so important when it comes to making changes in your lifestyle. You could do all of these things if you believed in your strategy 100%. But, if you didn't believe in yourself, then you probably won't succeed.
Believing is not something that comes from a magazine or a trainer. It comes from deep down, and it can only be derived from our thoughts and actions. When I competed in bodybuilding, a lot of people told me I needed to believe in myself; more than anything else I needed to have my own back. And I did, and success followed me every step of the way. My training wasn’t a secret, it was basic, consistent and intense, it was based on years of experience and knowledge I have gained over the years studying and teaching. I believed I was too capable of getting the result and executed it.
I find that my passion for fitness and my faith are in tension with each other. I often find people who are not invested in both. Faith and fitness need daily growth and goals to be effective. Even if you don't know the difference between a barbell and a dumbbell, most people start working out to improve themselves. It's a great way to get in shape and look better. For most people, achieving a long-term goal involves committing to a series of short-term goals. These are usually just goals that require a little bit of effort and patience. We tend to set aside goals for ourselves that are not carried over into faith.
It can be easy to get carried away with the idea that we can accomplish anything we set out to do, especially when we don’t have a long-term goal in mind. Like working on those things, growing in faith is also about having the right attitude and not expecting too much of yourself. While it can be hard to get started on the right path to growth, I have a lot of encouragement and hope that it will eventually happen. Even when we make mistakes, God still has plans for us. He is still here to help us get there.
It has been said that being active helps us feel peaceful and calm. This connection is also good for our mental health. If you’re training for a marathon or just trying to improve your fitness level, here are some suggestion:
Make a Plan: The first step in setting goals is to make a plan. Just as you do in your career, you should also do the same with your faith and fitness. Being consistent is very important in training. Usually, running on the same day is all that's needed to get started. Another important factor is paying close attention to our bodies: what hurts, what needs support, and how we can stretch more. We need to identify the areas of our lives that we can improve upon in order to have the best possible outcome. This could be spiritual, physical, or counseling.
Pray: When it comes to faith, prayer is a great way to start. There are a number of faith-focused podcasts that are great for listening while you exercise. One of the most important things about working out or running is to allow yourself to rest. This can be as simple as taking a deep breath and going for a walk or a run. Prayer is a simple act of love that flows toward heaven. It can be expressed through a variety of expressions, such as a shout of praise and joy, and it can be done while you're running or working out.
Find Community: It is essential that you have a community behind you during any training plan. This can be found in the form of a group of people running together, or meeting new friends at the gym.
Not believing in their own abilities and their strategy was the reason why so many people failed to achieve their goals. This is a recurring theme in our lives, and it can be prevented by acquiring too much information. Plus, we probably won’t have time to follow a strategy that works for everyone.
