Are you in a Rut or a Groove?
Ask yourself this question? Are you in a Rut or a Groove? You may be saying to yourself, Life is great, I am happy, healthy, but no forward progress. But do you have a groove? Do you have something that motivates you everyday? Something that keeps you going...something that makes you a BETTER version you? Get into a groove" is a good thing and "stuck in a rut" means you're kind of not able to change directions without a lot of effort.
Ruts can destroy you. A rut is that place where forward progress stops. You are spinning and it can eventually drive you crazy.
A groove can take you to new heights. Grooves are when things are great and you feel a sense of accomplishment. Are you in the same place you were a year ago and feel like you have not accomplished something you set your mind to? Did you tell yourself I am going to get in shape, but you start and stop several times and now you are stuck. If you are in a rut and can't seem to get yourself out.
Take a risk: Try something new, try a new workout, find someone to motivate you. Try doing something different and stick with it.
So I challenge you with this question...Are you stuck? Or, are you in the groove and need to keep removing the barriers in order to keep your momentum going?
Today is a new day. A day for you to make what you want of it. You have to ask yourself the question, What are you doing? Are you happy? You only have one life to live and you need to make the most of it. Life is not easy but full of obstacles and challenges. Are you willing to take on a challenge and put in the hard work to feel good?
Start Simple...and pick one thing you know you can be consistent with! I know this is not easy, but if you focus on just one thing you can do it. Did you know it takes 66 days to form a habit? Most people say 21 days, but according to science to form a habit you must do it for 66 days.
At the end of the day, how long it takes to form a particular habit doesn't really matter. Whether it takes 50 days or 1000 days, you have to be willing to put in the work. I have clients who have realized when they focus on work and not just try to count numbers to hurry up finish, they feel a sense of accomplishment and reward and actually have a much better workout.
The only way to get to Day 500 is to start with Day 1. Forget about focusing on a number and just focus on the work!
So what are you waiting for? ....Get started today!
