You work out. You spend several hours a week in the gym. You eat healthy, for the most part. But still... You can't get into the shape that you hope for. What's the deal?!
So how do YOU get fit? I mean YOU. Not what you've heard from other people, but what YOU know to be true. Not what some dude with a six pack on a blog wrote about how to get fit, but YOU personally. What has worked for you?! There are so many variables that play a role in achieving great health, it's often hard to pinpoint what works and what doesn't.
Insanity is defined as repeating the same behavior and expecting a different result each time. So why do so many people wake up, eat the same meals, go to work, get a workout in, and go to bed thinking that tomorrow, they're going to wake up thinner, more muscular, yada yada yada...
I believe a lot of people wake up wishing for that but never achieving it because of this. DESIRE.
DESIRE is what drives all of our behavior. When you truly want something, you just do it. When you want food, you go get it immediately, no hesitation. When you want new clothes, you go get them. When you want to spend time with a loved one, you make the time. It's really simple. When you want to learn and become educated, you put in the time to study and research to become knowledgeable. The things we want the most, we make time for and do regardless of inconvenience. But with fitness, it gets messy. It's so difficult. It hurts. It takes a toll on your body, and your mind.
So what's stopping you from truly getting fit? Is it the work and the commitment required? Is it the knowledge or education? Are other things in your life fighting against this? Is it DESIRE?
I would argue that pure desire to achieve greatness will trump a lazy individual with a great plan. More often than not, the person who doesn't have all the answers and the resources, but works their butt off because they desire transformation, will come out on top. The apathetic "know it all", who's well educated and knows all the latest trends and techniques, yet doesn't apply them, will lose.
So what do you DESIRE? Comfort or results? The choice is yours.
