Train Your Mind First
“If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.”
How do I train myself to be more consistent?
1. Develop a daily routine and stick to it. Have a plan.
2. One task at a time. (I remember writing ‘multi-tasker’ on my resume at one point, but new studies show that multi-tasking isn’t the most efficient way to get stuff done.) Focus on one thing at a time, when possible, and feel good when you check it off your to-do list.
3. To have consistent behavior, strive for consistent thinking. Now is the time to practice massive positivity and gratitude. Exude self-confidence. Radiate hope & peace.
4. Do it even if you don’t feel like it. Push through the momentary discomfort – your goals are worth it!
5. Speaking of goals, write down your goals, or create a vision board and post it EVERYWHERE. Save it as a screensaver on your phone. Tape it to your mirror, fridge, TV. Avoid shaming-type content – we want to motivate ourselves with positivity and purpose!
6. You are what you do day-in and day-out. How are you crafting you? Remind yourself, “I am an athlete, and athlete’s workout!”
ps If you don’t consider yourself “athlete material”, think again, my friend. It’s time to start owning what.you.ARE!
Urban Dictionary defines ‘athlete’ as “An individual who participates in sports. Characterized by dedication, focus, intelligence and work ethic.” Does that sound like you? I thought so!!
7. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is what Albert Einstein defined as insanity. But I’ve heard it also be defined as SUCCESS. Trust the process, keep that routine, stay consistent, and not only will you see results physically, but your mind will transform as well.
