We all know where we are now, where we want to go and what we need to do to get there. Sometimes that end goal seems so far away, but time will continue to pass, regardless of what you do…so why just think about it, or even better, why not start doing something about it now rather than tomorrow?
Sometimes we focus on the negatives too much e.g.. it hurts, i feel unfit, i feel slow, etc, but this is just you experiencing what it is like to step out of your comfort zone – the majority of the time, the only reason you don’t like a certain exercise, is not because you are bad at it, it’s just that you haven’t perfected it and to get perfection, you have to practice it (the more you do it, the better you get at it in a shorter amount of time).
So the next time you step out of your comfort zone, give yourself a little credit and if it hurts, tell yourself it’ll hurt a little less the next time you do it and so on and so on. The secret to getting to where you want to be is to keep on taking small steps forward and not stepping back.
