Growth and Change

In order to grow, we must be willing to accept change in every area of life. And given that our brains are designed to resist and protect us from change, these choices must be conscious! Pay attention to the reasons “why not” your brain likes to trick you with and make those conscious decisions to accept change and do things differently.

Where are you on a scale of 1-10 in your willingness to accept change?

To determine where you are on the scales, you can consider:

**What are you willing to give up to get what you want?

**What are you willing to spend to get to where you want to be?

**Are you willing to let go of truths you might hold and see things from a different perspective?

The above combined with our willingness to accept change and our willingness to learn make up the Teachability Index.

Here’s the thing…

It’s OK if you’re not 10/10 on both scales! We aren’t going to be there 100% of the time. It’s a place to strive to be because that’s where new levels of success are reached. Bringing consciousness to where you are will allow you to determine the actions you need to take and the ways in which you need to adjust your thoughts to move higher on the Teachability Index, the place that we have tremendous growth.

I’d love to know if you have questions about this or how it resonates.

On Failures and Lessons

What’s the difference between failures and lessons?

To me, they are very similar and both rooted, ultimately, in failure. The key difference is turning a failure into a lesson and see failures as steps on the road to success instead of the opposite of success.

You see, you can either let failures stop you in your tracks OR you can take note of what didn’t work, why it didn’t work, and change your approach or plan and keep going.

It’s really that simple.

As a fitness professional, it is my duty to take both my own failures and the past failures of students and mold them into powerful lessons that ultimately move us all forward.

Think on this for a bit – when is the last time a challenge or failure stopped you from moving forward in your life, whether in fitness, career, relationships, or otherwise? When is the last time you used the failure as feedback for a plan to move forward in a more powerful way?

Which produced a better result?

I think we both know the answer. 🙂 Let me know your thoughts on this!

What’s Holding You Back?

You want to succeed, right? You have the desire to exercise and eat in a way that will cause you to gain health and get fit, don’t you?

So why is it SO HARD to actually make it happen?

When someone starts out gung-ho about a program or idea about changing their body, they’re often so excited that they overlook how truly challenging it will be. When someone embarks on a fitness program, they always need to write down tangible goals and then send them out into the universe for accountability.

What I believe is almost as important as setting the goals themselves is making a list of limiting factors – those things that will potentially hold you back and make achieving goals more difficult.

The ones I most often see are family and work. By identifying these limiting factors to begin with, you can come up with a plan for how to get around them so they do not hold you back. This pre-emptive work can truly make all the difference.

Once you’ve identified limiting factors and have set a plan for how to counter them, you should be set for success, right?

Well, again, it’s not that simple because you have to TAKE ACTION.
