Oftentimes we fix our focus on the past. The happy memories, the unhappy memories, the good times, and the bad. I believe that (unfortunately) this focus often becomes fixated on missed opportunities and things left undone. Speaking in terms of health and fitness – it’s the workout that you missed; the extra dessert you ate; or five extra pounds you’ve recently gained. We become so obsessed with the past that we often neglect to do anything about our present. “Why bother” and “I’ve already tried” are words that start to permeate our vocabulary. We become disillusioned, frustrated, and ultimately hopeless.
So what do we do? How do we overcome this attitude, keep progressing forward, and ultimately achieve our fitness goals? I’ve got the answer below…
The answer lies in this week’s “Fitness Motivation” post…
“The secret to change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but building the new.”
The past is over and done. There’s no way to change it. There may be regrets, missed opportunities, and remorse in your past, but the harsh reality is there’s absolutely nothing you can do to change it.
What you CAN do is focus all you energy and efforts into the present. Right here and now. TODAY. If you missed your workout yesterday make sure you do one TODAY! If you ate extra dessert last night, make healthier eating choices TODAY! If you have gained five extra pounds recently, you can focus your time and efforts into making healthier choices today that will ultimately take off those 5 pounds in a few weeks! Remember – the steps that you take today will be what you look at tomorrow and next week as the past. Avoid regret by building something new and amazing… TODAY!
