What are you willing to do?

Recently, a gym owner friend of mine sent out a survey to his clients, asking them about their goals. He wanted them to rank their current fitness, nutrition, sleep, stress, and happiness levels, and provide one specific, measurable goal for the next 90 days.

Out of the 61 people who received the survey twice within a few days, only eleven took the time (just 2 minutes) to fill it out. That’s less than 1 in 5.

Now, I want to be honest with you, so get ready for some tough love. If someone is not even willing to spare 2 minutes and communicate their goals with their coach, it’s hard to imagine that they’ll put in the necessary work to achieve them.

My own coach and mentor has a saying: “If you really want something, you’ll do whatever it takes.”

We all want a better body, stronger muscles, and more energy. We want to feel confident in our clothes and comfortable in our own skin. We want to enjoy all our favorite activities without pain and to cultivate a healthier mindset.

The question is, what are you willing to do in order to achieve those things?

Most people aren’t willing to exercise consistently and eat mindfully. They chase instant results, and when they don’t see drastic changes within a few weeks, they get discouraged and give up. 

They get easily sidetracked by minor disruptions to their schedule or small obstacles, using them as excuses for not having enough time.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

And if this has happened to you at some point, it’s not your fault.

You already have all the focus and discipline you need to train consistently and make better food choices. You have the resilience to stay committed even when life gets crazy.

So, take a moment to reflect on what kind of person you want to be. 

The kind who merely talks about wanting to change? 

Or the kind who is ready to put in the effort to make it happen?

Remember, the decision is yours to make.
