Now, for the 8th Step: Don’t Let Set Backs Set You Back
Many people attempt goals but it seems like the ones who actually achieve their goals are those that keep going no matter how many times they fail or fall off track. Perseverance is one of the keys to success at any initiative.
A short term effort is not going to get you where you ultimately want. In order to achieve any goal, you must stick to your game plan on an ongoing, long-term, consistent basis. Getting off track for a week is no big deal if you are consistent in your efforts. But if you are regularly tempted away from your plan, you will not succeed. Consistency and persistency are the keys to manifesting any goal. Remember that if you want to be 10 pounds thinner 10 years from now, it is not what you do over the next eight weeks that matters,it is what you do over the next 10 years. Researchers have found only one characteristic common to those who succeed with goals including exercise. All such people move towards their goal one step at a time. They are committed to constant, never-ending improvement. In practical terms, it means that regardless of anything else – busy work schedules, lack of energy, lack of time, feeling old, feeling lazy, hating exercise – they made no excuses! They kept moving forward, taking their long-term goals and splitting them up into smaller goals. They took it one day at a time.

After working in the fitness industry for 25 years and helping people achieve their goals, I have discovered that there are common traits that exist between those who succeed and those who struggle. So far we’ve shared how important it is for clients to write down their goals and action steps and create a map for their lives, the critical act of moving their bodies and last week, we reviewed the key to eating healthy so your clients can have the energy to reach for your dreams.
After all, what good is it to be achieving goals if you don’t feel good enough to enjoy your life!
Today, we move on to Step Four (SHARE WITH YOUR CLIENTS!!):
Helping your clients realizing their potential. Achieving dreams means you have to believe in yourself. You can’t set self-imposed limits on who you are, who you can become and what you can do. You’ve probably heard the saying:
“If you believe you can or believe you can’t, you’re right!”
Dreams happen first in the mind so if you dream small, you will achieve small but if you dream big, you will achieve big and great things!
