We admire your guts to dare to re-imagine your future and snatch that pen from the hands of fate to boldly write the next chapter of your life for yourself.
Because while that trademark courage of yours comes in handy when it’s time to start something new, before long it always seems that your motivation goes MIA and you find yourself right back at square one again.
You know how to create a list of all the things you want to overhaul about your life and you can go full throttle for a few days …
But then your battery dies from all the effort to become someone who is wildly different from who you are.
It feels like you’ve tried everything and found nothing that works for you long-term.
This cycle, repeated time and time again, has left you feeling beyond frustrated with yourself and convinced that you’ll never be able to make the change you want.
But, in reality, white-knuckling your way through massive change is miserable, stressful, exhausting, and it doesn’t even work (trust us, we’ve tried too… sooooooo many times).
The problem is thinking the lifestyle transformation you’re after is a choice you make one day and then convincing yourself to “buck up” and “be disciplined” so it sticks.
If you’ve tried everything out there and nothing has stuck, it might be because you’re treating your goal to get strong, fit, and healthy like a “diet and exercise” problem—
But – and we say this with love – if your struggle is not being able to stick to things long term, that’s actually more of a behavior change problem— specifically, a lack of behavior change skills.
And without building a rock-solid foundation of behavior change skills first, you’ll likely keep sabotaging yourself.
Instead of trying to change everything dramatically and all at once, we suggest learning small but mighty habits to build skills for lasting behavior change like resilience, motivation regulation, and cognitive flexibility (aka the opposite of all-or-nothing thinking).
This means don’t try to jump straight into the deep end just because you want to be “there” already or because you used to “do it all.”
Small habits build strong foundations.
Your 1% effort today will compound over time.
