When it comes to achieving your goals – whether they’re fitness goals, life goals, financial goals or relationship goals – there’s one factor that is absolutely non-negotiable and that’s commitment. In the fitness realm, there are many things that can derail your success. Boredom, work stress, family obligations, not seeing results quickly – these are all things that can toss you right off the path if your commitment is lacking.
Here are some ways to keep your commitment level high and ensure you keep making progress toward being your best self.
- Go for small and achievable goals. The number one reason people don’t achieve their goals is because they set out to do too much all at once. I get that you may want to exercise 5 times a week, lose 25 pounds, quit smoking, eat more vegetables and drink more water but setting out to do all that at once is not realistic. Instead break it down into small steps that are achievable and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed.
- Put your goals out there. It’s proven that people are more likely to achieve their goals if they make them known to others.
