Yes, it can be as long as you have a game plan in mind and know what your specific goal is.
Over the weekend my son competed in a Jiujitsu Tournament, he has been training for close to two years now.
This was his third tournament and every one before this Saturday he didn’t place.
The week prior to Saturday we were talking about the tournament and I asked him what does he want to accomplish?
He looked at me and confidently said, I’m going to win my division, score high in each match and isn’t going to walk away empty handed and can see it when he closes his eyes.
Sure enough, he did just that. Watching him compete in each match with the confidence that I admired and proud of. He took 1st place in his division and each match scored 8 to 12 points higher than his opponent.
His eyes swelled up with tears when he knew he had won and said “Wow, I did it”!
He set no boundaries or limitations to what he wanted to accomplish, for many adults we set limits as to why we can’t or won’t achieve something.
We want our children to achieve their goal, so now why wouldn’t we place the same expectations on ourselves?
My son had a goal in mind and he went for it, he had a plan.
Below are some tips to setting a basic plan to achieve your fitness goal ==>
1. Set your goal
You want to be in better shape, but that’s vague, go deeper.
How many inches do you want to lose?
What dress size do you want to fit in?
2. Define your timeline
Be definite on when you want to drop those 5 to 10 pounds.
Say something like…Drop 10 pounds by Christmas Day.
3. Name your prize
Specify something that you would like for reaching the goal.
A new dress to wear on Christmas Day.
4. Picture It
See yourself fitting into a sexy black dress or an outfit you’ve
wanted to buy for yourself when losing the weight or firming your body.
My son continues to teach me little life lessons everyday and I share them along to you. I know the challenges we face everyday with life, kids, work.
But don’t lose sight of what your end goal is!
