In order to achieve, grow and be “successful” we have to accept that life isn’t going to be easy.
At many points in our lives we will be bombarded with with trying times, obstacles and barriers that inhibit us from reaching goals the way we want to.
We often picture the route to success as rainbows and sunshine but its usually sleet, snow, hail storms, a week of beautiful sunshine, a tornado, then sunshine. The cycle of highs and lows will present itself over and over again, but with growth we start learning along the way and pack an umbrella and learn to use shelter when needed.
In those hard times, it's an opportunity to give ourselves grace and the opportunity to learn and once we come out of it. We can then use those tools to tackle a similar issues with a little more insight on how to solve it.
What helps most of us with trying times is the belief that if we work hard, consistently learn and apply ourselves things will get better. It is having faith that what we go through we grow through, but that all comes with putting in the work.
On the flip side if we believe we can’t do something, then we already have already decided our fate.
We have given ourselves an out.
If we actually believe we can overcome the obstacles to reach our goal, then we will be successful.
We have to make a daily effort to be the best we can in the present moment. We have to act out the systems and procedures we know to our heart to be true and listen and implement the advice our coaches, mentors give us.
Once you think you might “try out” personal training, clean eating or for any instance any lifestyle change you put yourself at a disadvantage, you have given yourself, the out.
For drastic change you have to have the believe that no matter what, you’re going to make it happen.
Plain and Simple.
You have to create your future because there is no other option. You know that success is not just a walk down the yellow brick road skipping with todo in your ruby red shoes. It's the walk down the yellow brick road with people telling you that you're not good enough, the witch trying to destroy you and all your family and your friends falling apart all along the way.
Simply put, it isn't easy.
No one can tell us how life will work out or when the good things will come. No one can tell us how hard it will be or all the roadblocks that will come up in our personal lives. It is all about our individual process and our willingness to put in the work day in and day out. We all have our own struggles. We all have our own heart aches.
But that road of belief becomes a little bit more clear when you have a community and guidance.
Find your belief, find your community and become all that you have ever imagined.
Start with the belief and you will be amazed at the opportunities that unfold.
