How Can YOU Really Change?
These days my focus is having me look ahead towards our upcoming ‘ALL IN’ Challenge. I am really excited about the potential this has for each and everyone of our members. My goal is to have 100 members participate in this challenge and every single one of you succeed through the entire 30 day period.
For anyone to achieve a goal they must change two major things; the way they think and the way they behave, it’s that simple. However, it is not that easy.
Before every challenge we do at the gym I always reflect back and think about some of the amazing transformations I have been fortunate to be apart of. I begin to think about what it took for each of those people to change. I also think about the one’s who I thought would do really well in a challenge and end up not finishing strong if completing it at all.
What does it really take for someone to change?
There are 3 things that I learned from John Maxwell, need to happen for someone to change for the better.
Hurt Enough You Have Too.
Humans are motivated by 2 things; pleasure or pain. Which is more powerful? PAIN.
Being very successful in FITness (and with anything in life) is HARD! Or all of us would already be ripped, rich and happy. You get sore. You are challenged physically, mentally and emotionally to push yourself to your potential. Imagine when you start CPM you are a Honda Accord and you are being pushed to train like you are now a Ferrarri, not an easy task. You have to have some real goals. But more importantly, you have to be fed up with yourself and want better. It’s gotta hurt more on the inside for you to push yourself harder to be better.
You Learn Enough You Want Too.
Call it an epiphany. Call it divine intervention. Call it becoming empowered. Some of us our fortunate enough to ‘see the light’ and not only figure out how this Paleo thing works but how they finally figure out how it works in their lives. Once you do, you won’t even think about going back to your old ways.
Receive Enough You Are Able Too.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
Through the HARD work, consistency and self sacrifice you begin to see and feel your desired results. It happens when your get first pull-up, when your pants start getting loose or your crush a workout you thought ‘used to’ be impossible and you want MORE! It is amazing to see the transformation in someone when this happens. When this happens you find that this is where the journey to ELITE FITness really begins and you can achieve anything you set your mind too.
Which one resonates the most with you? Comment and tell us WHY.
