Getting in shape doesn’t happen overnight. The only way to make it work is to be incredibly resilient, consistent, and excited about your endeavors. Now, that’s all good and dandy, but it’s easier said than done. It’s easy to fall away from a good workout routine—after all, life gets in the way sometimes. But that’s not the real culprit. No, the real culprit is that we point to our past failures as reasons to not try again.
Don’t Be a Victim of Your Past
Have you ever gotten all amped up for a new workout regimen, only to change your mind later because you allowed that pestering voice inside your head to say, “Why bother? You didn’t stick to your last one!”? If that’s the case, just bear in mind that that’s completely normal. We all have those doubts occasionally, but the key is to not fall prey to them.
Just because you weren’t able to complete something in the past doesn’t mean you won’t be able to complete it this time. You’re a completely different person now, with more life experience, more knowledge, and perhaps more conviction to follow through. The only thing holding you back is the idea that you “can’t” do it. So don’t be a victim of your past, create a new routine that works for you now, and get it done!
