Your Challenge Today:

Focus on your ‘doing’….

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC

 


 

Success is a journey, not a destination.

The doing is often more important than the outcome.

~ Arthur Ashe

 


 

As we are beginning this Living Fit Lifestyle Game ~ we all have some areas of our lives that we would like to boost!

 

Our productivity, our relationships, our organizational skills, our fun factor, our ability to relax, sleep, cook ~ whatever it is ~ now is the time!

 

Embarking on your personal journey, challenging yourself to learn something new ~ is far more important than the actual outcome. You will definitely have up days and down days … you (we) are NOT perfect nor should you ever expect to be. This journey is like learning to dance with yourself, two steps forward, a turn and sometimes back ~ and that’s OK.

 

  • Learning new habits is a process that takes time.

 

  • Developing new skills takes time.

 

  • Creating a new experience in our lives takes time.

 

  • Finding that perfect house, job or mate ~ takes time.

 

  • Sculpting our perfect body ~ takes time.

 


 

It is vitally important that we embark on this journey with clearly defined goals

— 12 Weeks — what can you realistically accomplish in 10 weeks?

 

  • SPECIFIC

  • MEASURABLE

  • ATTAINABLE

  • REALISTIC

  • TIMELY

 


 

Here is a perfect example of – not realistic – and what are you going to do about it?

 

I have a client that I have worked with for years ~ we frequently would have these regular conversations about “how come I am on the “b” list?”  I want to workout at 7:00 not 6:00.  6:00 is the time that nobody wants and I want on the A list….

 

OK, let’s examine this –

 

First  – I don’t have that time available to offer you for a regular appointment.

 

Second – You have to take the kids to school at 7:20, how are you going to be in the gym and take the kids to school at the same time?

 

Third – After you take the kids to school, you have to go to the office and work, you do have a job, right?

 

So, what’s the answer to the question?  You really only have 6:00 to workout, that realistically fits your schedule and mine – so it’s really a win!

 


 

What change in perspective do you need to make

that will facilitate your successful journey?
