Do you ever notice that when something goes wrong in our lives, we usually tend to never think that it’s our fault? Most people do this, if you’re not losing weight or progressing in your fitness/fat loss/health related goals it can’t be something YOU”RE doing right?….Well hate to break it to you, but it is.
Let me give you an example, if I’m not progressing and losing fat or weight like I want, I know it’s because I’ve been eating like an asshole and not being consistent with my workouts.
As a fitness professional, I’m blamed all of the time for lack of results. Clients just don’t know why they can’t lose or why there has been no progression, but digging a little deeper into every aspect of their lives, I can usually pinpoint what’s going on and honestly, it’s not hard to figure out.
When you start taking responsibility for everything you are or are not doing, you’ll probably start progressing much faster. I’m here to tell you that you are at the position you are at because of the choices and decisions you’ve made, good or bad. You think you’re tracking everything, but are you? People blame things on genetics, medical issues, and past circumstances, but is it that you just aren’t doing the work? You might be showing up at the gym, but are you really putting in the effort?
Start looking at every aspect in your life and really think long and hard about if you are doing EVERYTHING you need to do to get results because chances are, you’re not. Until you are willing to accept total responsibility for every aspect of your life, you will live in victim mode and live by your excuses.
