I know everyone looks back on their year in December and asks themselves what has changed? If you can genuinely say you have achieved things and changed then it is a good year
"The comfort zone is perhaps our biggest enemy in life."
I have fallen into the trap before and this is plain and simply part of life. However, I am lucky enough to have a certain belief that I am destined for better things and I tend to place my health as a priority
I work with and train highly successful professionals, yet, I often see that successful people do not prioritise health or factor the gym routine into part of their plans. Instead, it is at this time of year the excuses come out and I hear the line "I will start up again in January when I have more time." To this,
my answer is plain and simply that time waits for nobody. All you are doing is adding time on to your potential change and risking your health.
In this situation you need to surround yourself with positive people. People that manage to balance a hectic work life, but still keep moving. Some of my clients are awake before work to walk and yet again after work. Remember it is winter now so you can move more freely outdoors too.
Yes it is difficult, but if you take your drive for work and take just 50% of that then you can make progress with health and fitness.
"Life is not a linear process so don't treat it as such. Road bumps come and go, but you just have to drive over them."
I always tell my clients that exercise is like a jigsaw puzzle, well, success in both life and business is the same. Exercise can also be viewed as laying foundations, as before lifting weights a certain level of bodyweight strength and movement should be achieved.
So when you look back at your year I hope you can stand up proud and say you have taken steps to achieve all of your goals. If you can't, then you need to reassess where your priorities are leading you, but it shouldn't be at a sacrifice to your health. Get out of your comfort zone, stop being average and take the necessary steps to become great.
