Let’s chat about patience & reaching goals!
How many of you have tried multiple different workout routines, multiple different “diets”? How many of you are frustrated with the lack of results in a short amount of time? Let’s look at why.
It used to take 2 months to get a letter mailed to you.
Now it takes 2 seconds to send a text.
It used to take 30 minutes to bake chicken breast.
Now it takes 3 minutes in the microwave.
It used to take 1 week to get milk delivered.
Now it takes 1 minute to pull it off the grocery shelf.
It used to take months and years to build the body you desire through hard work, dedication and consistency.
Now it can still takes months and years with the same hard work, dedication, and consistency.
What’s the difference you ask?
People used to exercise their patience.
Living in an instant gratification society forgets what patience was made for. Living in an instant gratification society takes away from the accomplishment of slow progress. Slow progress is progress that will stay. Slow progress is making the decision every day to become better, to push forward, and with patience as your best friend, you will become who you want to be. The only difference, is with patience present, you won’t give up. You’ll keep going because you know what’s waiting for you – a week from now, a month from now, a year from now, 5 years from now. Patience will help you exercise every other dedicated bone in your body.
Building the health and body you want takes time. It doesn’t take one week to gain a lot of fat. It doesn’t take one week to lose a lot of fat. It doesn’t take one week to build a lot of muscle. It doesn’t take one week to lose a lot of muscle. What it does take, is consistency to a healthy program that will produce a healthy lifestyle full of long-term results. Your body is the most wonderful “machine” ever made. It knows what it’s doing. Give it the right fuel and training and you’ll get there. All in due time.
Don’t fall into the instant gratification trap with your body. Allow your patience to flourish. Remind yourself that every choice matters. Patience can be your best friend that will help push you to your goals.
