The Secret To Lasting Physical Change

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. ” | Socrates

One of the greatest most challenging journeys you'll ever go on is seeing what your body is capable of. There might be a chance you are in shape, wholly out of shape, or just hoping to lose some weight. However, developing a body that you can be proud, one that is healthy, and lets you truly adore every last tiny inch of it really is a dazzling journey to travel down.

So what is the real secret behind making a long-lasting change with your body?

Consistency and commitment.

There’s nothing else like coming to the table every day and giving it your best shot. Your best effort must be yours and yours alone. Don’t start comparing your journey to other journeys or else you will become lackadaisical and daunted by the task at hand. Instead, really try and understand you’re competing against and with yourself and yourself alone. Will there be times on your journey where you try and fail? Yes, many times. But every time you do, you must come back with a commitment to achieving something you’ve always really wanted. Consistency will keep you in the game and on the field each day. Without it, you'll suffer the the unavoidable reality of many new years resolutioners who give up each and every single year on developing the body of their dreams because they are missing the personal power to keep on coming back repeatedly timeand again.

Commitment also is evoked, but not the commitment that you are probably thinking of. In our world, we are fed this strong idea that everything must take place at this time and if it does not actually occur now, it is not worth it. Your body is going to really change throughoutthe years, so why don’t you try and make a real lifelong commitment to remaining healthy? Is that a sexy marketable idea? Not really. But is it something that could truly change the course of your life? Definitely.

When you make a promise to keeping your body healthy throughout your whole life, you will at last reach whatever goal you wish. It is about seeing the big picture than merely the few months in front of you till summer. It is about developing something you can be pleased with for all the years to come. For me, that new concept changed my life as I was able to finally hit my health targets after 12 years of fighting with my body image and food issues. But as soon as I modified my view of what I was making an attempt to attain, everything I had wished for came to me. So try it on for size and see if it’s working for you. Make a lifelong dedication to remaining healthy and watch how much your body will change in the short term too.

Bring some commitment and consistency to the table, in all facets of your life, and things will change drastically.
