I see so many people get frustrated with their healthy living plans. They try to eat right and exercise for a little while. But then they give up when they don’t quickly, magically become what they want to be – pain-free, mobile, stronger, etc.
So, let me tell you:
Transformation is not an event. It is a PROCESS.
And that process is comprised of countless decisions and choices you make over time. They build on each other, bringing small changes that then manifesting in the bigger results you’re seeking.👊🏽
I’m reminded of the Rule of 10,000 Hours, which Malcolm Gladwell wrote about in “Outliers.” He found that genius-level achievement is only possible after putting in that much time. (And don’t worry – you’re not trying to reach genius level, here!)
For example, he wrote about the pre-fame Beatles moving from England to Germany, where bars stayed open all night and they could play in front of an audience into the wee hours all week. They learned to anticipate each others’ moves. They honed their harmonies and rhythms. They learned how to pace a show.💯 All that time transformed them from being four talented boys into, well, the Beatles.🎸
It didn’t happen magically after they practiced for a few weeks, right? And, what’s best, you don’t have to spend 10,000 hours dieting and exercising to reach your goals. Remember, the Beatles changed the world. You just want to change yourself.
You’ve got to wrap your brain and heart around this impactful idea: Success takes time, no matter the endeavor.
So develop your plans. Align your priorities. Do what you need to do to ensure that you’re exercising regularly, eating right, managing stress, and maintaining a positive outlook. You’ll learn the intricacies of your body and mind. You’ll discover more about your likes and dislikes. You’ll make progress along the way and learn to overcome disappointment.
The rest will come – IN TIME.
P.S If you are an active person being forced to slow down or stop the activities you love because you are in pain and stiff, then you have to do something different than you are now and have patience. It is really important to know where you might be different and get the EXACT exercises that work for you. You won’t find what you need on youtube, in magazines, or from your friend Ralph who has exercises that worked for him that he THINKS will work for you.
