Have you met someone who seems to have talent for something but is not getting far enough while other person does seem so talented and having more success?
We all have different talents, we are all good and even great at different things, we all love different stuff but what takes us from where we are today to a higher level and what differentiate us from the rest is perseverance.
We´ve all met very talented people throughout our lives and sometimes we ask why does this guys didn´t achieve much in life and the answer in most cases is lack of perseverance.
Perseverance means continuous effort, putting in the hard work over and over for as long as needed until we reach our goals, if we take action and do what we need to do every single day we´ll get results. There will be days that we don´t feel like putting the hard work, there will be days when we want to stay in bed, there will be times when we want to go out with friends instead of going to the gym, the choice we make those times is what´s going to make the difference.
With just one time that we choose to go to the party or to stay in bed the more likely we will repeat that choice again making it the reason why we doesn´t achieve our goals.
We need to be accountable, know that we will do what we said we´re going to do no matter what. The longer we work and the harder we work the faster we will get to where we want.
Through the journey we will face times that are going to break us or make us stronger, if we let those moments break us we won´t achieve anything worth having, if we don´t show up the moments we know it´s going to be though all our past efforts will go to waste.
Yes we need to work hard and put all the effort and intensity, the higher the intensity (always knowing our limits and keeping our ego outside) the better the results but in days when we feel like not doing it is a lot better to show up and put some work in than do nothing, just by doing it we´ll be working on developing or replacing old habits with new ones and with time going to the gym, or doing that same action will be a habit and it will be so easy to do.
One of the most important things to consider is that it takes time to achieve or accomplish great things in life, the bigger the goal and reward the more time and effort it will take so we need to be patient and that´s why perseverance is important, if we only take action one week we won´t see results, we need to take action 4 weeks or more and even when we can see results in the first couple weeks we need to continue working otherwise we will lose the results we´ve gotten.
Perseverance requires the right mindset, if we want the determination to keep going, keep trying and keep working when things get tough or when we´re not getting the results we need to have the right strong mindset that will keep us pushing forward.
Are you willing to work as hard as you need to get in shape? to get the amazing physique you´ve always wanted? or to achieve any other goal you´ve been postpone?
