We’re past the halfway mark in January. How do you feel your year has started?
And before you beat yourself up, I want you to understand that 2021 has probably had the worst start to any year in recent memory:
- Consistently negative news
- No gyms
- No sports
- Limited social outlets
I get it, it can be difficult to focus on the positives when there are so many negatives but let me ask you a quick question…
What do you do when you’re faced with a significant problem, challenge or limitation in business or work?
Do you just accept it and wait it out? or do you react and pivot?
You see, if you just accept it and stay stuck then the absolute best you can hope for is to stagnate and make no progress whatsoever, but, the worst you can hope for (and unfortunately more likely) is that you will regress, and your business/career will tank!
You need to apply the same level of reasoning with your body and health.
If you just accept that you can’t exercise because the gym is closed or your sport is cancelled, then your body will tank, and it will tank fast.
However, if you react and look at what is available then you can mitigate the damage, and if you find the right environment by pivoting, then you can actually make incredible progress.
This is what all my clients are doing inside my group. They have all reacted, pivoted and more importantly refused to accept that the limitations will impact how they look and feel.
With structure, coaching and accountability they are progressing fast!
Each week they are reporting wins ranging from fat loss, strength improvements, running times, mindset development and much more. They are inspiring each other to keep pushing.
As a busy professional you already know the difference between accepting and reacting.
Do you want this year to mimic 2020, or do you want to take back control?
