4 Factors for success in training
1. Having a great work ethic- Everyone wants to find the easiest route and path of least resistance. As a society we always look for the next secret diet or magic pill because nobody actually wants to work for anything today. No matter your goal you are going to have to work at it and its not going to be easy to accept the challenge and work each and everyday with your goal in mind. Lets face it if it was easy then everyone would do it and everyone would be in great shape and be successful. Tom Hanks said it perfect in the movie A League of Their Own
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great."
2. Having the right mindset-You must have the mindset to get stronger, lose weight and get better for these things to actually happen. If you start off with the wrong negative mindset you will give yourself no chance to reach your goals.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”
― Henry Ford
3. Having a great support system- Family, friends, co-workers or significant others all are people in your lives who can help build a positive support system for you in reaching your goals. Those people in your life who bring you down and keep you from reaching such goals should be eliminated in order for you to have success.Each of us are surrounded by ‘crabs’ and "haters" who take up precious time and try to ruin our ambitions, motivation, passion and enthusiasm.The best thing to do is surround yourself with like minded individuals and those who will bring out the best in you.
4.Having true dedication-Dedication is bringing work ethic on a day in and day out basis. When things get hard, when results have slowed only those truly dedicated with stick around and fight some more. Dedicate yourself to reaching your goals and doing whatever it takes to get there. Dedication is getting up on a Monday at 6am in the middle of the winter to get your workout in. Dedication is not being " in the mood" to workout but still getting in it anyways. So ask yourself " are you really dedicated?"
“The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication. ”
-Cecil B. DeMille
