Muscle And Fitness -- The Third and Final Key To Successfully Achieving Your Fitness Goals
Before delving into Muscle And Fitness - The Second Key, the final and most important key to success in your muscle and fitness routine, I'd like to remind you about what the previous article discussed.
In a previous article, you were given a number of steps to follow. In summary, Muscle And Fitness - The Second Key is the 'DO' key. This is where you structure your actions to take you to your goals. You must decide which action (Exercise) is the most effective tool to help you achieve that particular goal.
Which brings me to the third and final key:
The 'BE' Key
You already know what your goals are - The HAVE key
You already know what you have to DO to achieve those goals - The DO key
In order to make sure that you carry out the DO key (your chosen exercises), you must BE the type of person that consistently and persistently follows the routine. You must do this without fail, so that you can have the ideal muscle mass, weight loss, fitness goal or whatever your goal is.
How do you become someone that you are not?
By not giving in!
Lets say that you have a chosen goal. Lets assume that goal is to lose 28lbs by the end of three months. What do you have to be in order to make sure that you achieve that goal of 28lbs of weight loss?
You have your goal. You have your exercise routine sorted out that is the most effective way, for you, of achieving that goal. Now it's time to guarantee that you don't stop after a week or so.
Your goals should be on your index card, as described in a the First Key.
As you are about to perform your training routine, go through this little scenario...
1. Read your goals aloud.
2. As you do, visualize that goal having already been achieved.
3. Feel that goal, as if you have already achieved it.
4. Then ask yourself:
* How good do I look? - I look GOOD!
Now say to yourself...
I feel Great - I look Great - I am successful!
Do this daily...
* In the morning, upon rising.
When you repeat this each time, feel it with conviction and say it with conviction. Feel your blood boil with excitement. Feel your heart beat hard. Get right into it. Stir up that passion and throw yourself right slam into the middle of it.
Don't give in. Persist and be consistent with your efforts... no matter whether you feel like it or not.
I have often found that the thoughts of having to do something are horrible at times. But, once I throw myself into it I feel absolutely fantastic and so happy that I didn't give in.
Have you ever found that?
If you have, remember that feeling. Feel it every time you are about to begin your training. Stir it up. Love that feeling and then get stuck in. BEcome what you need to become so that you can DO whatever it takes to achieve the goals that you said you want to HAVE.
That is the final key to successfully achieving your Muscle and Fitness goals.
