Your journey to your ultimate goal will probably not be a smooth one. You'll have to challenge yourself in many more ways than you probably initially bargained. The clients who create more hurdles for themselves are the ones with a "fixed mindset". Really take a look at that list from a gym/client/health or aesthetic goal perspective…… This is what I hear out of the mouths of clients with a fixed mindset: - I just didn't have the time to eat healthy/find a way to work out - I'm just too busy - I don't want to be judged in the gym for being there alone so I haven't trained since our last session - I hate that kind of food/ that exercise - It just slipped my mind…. (for the fourth week in a row) If you are so focused on the challenges in your path, you won't find a way around them.
Alternatively, clients with a "growth mindset" invariably are more successful and quicker to succeed or reach a state of self-satification along the way. This is what I hear from them: - I had no time to go grocery shopping this week but I stopped at New Seasons and grabbed a few meals-worth of chicken, veggies, and quinoa from the deli and hit my macros anyway - There was no gym at my hotel so I took a walk between buisness meetings and finished the day with a 15 minute bodyweight routine in my room - I've had a hard time grasping flexible dieting but I downloaded Sohee Fit's book and it makes so much more sense - I was nervous about bugging you with questions between sessions but I'm glad I emailed you, I was able to get over that mental hurdle last night and I feel so much better - Focusing on small successes in my mobility keeps me excited knowing that down the road, I'm going to be able to get where I want to be
I'm always saying, look for detours. This keeps you in a positive frame of mind and allows for answers and growth in difficult situations.
