Are you one of those people who set up the goals and then never achieve them?

You are not alone. In fact, the majority of people never reach their full potential.

It’s sad but is true.

It’s sad because there is nothing better than fulfilling your dreams and reaching the stars. And it can be done, everyone can improve and get better, in anything, almost infinitely.

Yet we can find 1000 reasons to hold us up. We would need a whole book to discuss them all, so let’s focus, in my humble opinion, on the most important one.

What’s your WHY?!

Let’s take the most common goal for my clients: burning fat.
When I ask them why they want to burn fat, they may say
“Well, in 2 months I am going for holidays to Spain”.
Ok, but why slimming down is important?
”Because I want to fit in this blue swimming suit I’ve bought before I got married 5 years ago”.
That’s better but still not quite.
What will happen after the holidays? They will put all fat back on because the goal was too short sighted.
So I ask again, why?
Then they may say because they want to look good.
Close but not enough. I like them to dig deeper, much deeper.

At the end of our chat they might come up with something like this:

“I want to drop the fat percentage because I want to be healthier and have more energy so I can live longer and happier life with my partner.”

That’s the half of the battle, right there. The mission statement like this will keep them going not only for a month or two but for years to come. It will also be harder, if not impossible, to get distracted or sidetracked.

By knowing your TRUE WHY you are doomed to SUCCESS.
