What the f£$k does this image have to do with “finding yourself” you ask?
– Imagine being in his position.
– No way out but to live and fight another day.
– Nothing other to focus on than himself and surviving. He needs to find himself, and fast. Identify what needs to be done, focus solely on that and WIN.
– So given your current fitness circumstances… what do you need to identify needs to be done.
– How are you going to become the person to achieve that goal.
– How are you going to WIN!
Want to lose weight?
Identity: Become the type of person who moves more every day.
Small win: Buy a pedometer. Walk 50 steps when you get home from work. Tomorrow, walk 100 steps. The day after that, 150 steps. If you do this 5 days per week and add 50 steps each day, then by the end of the year, you’ll be walking over 10,000 steps per day.
Want to become strong?
Identity: Become the type of person who never misses a workout.
Small win: Do pushups every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Want to become faster?
Identity: Become the person who has increased explosive speed over.
Small win: Endeavour to hit the treadmill and do HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) on an incline gradient of 5.0% and speed of minimum 14.0 kmph using a 20:10 ratio of 20 seconds hard work and effort and 10 seconds stationary rest. This will be performed 16 times over an 8 minute period (totalling 10 minutes with a 1 minute warm up and 1 minute cool down).
What is your identity?
In my experience, when you want to become better at something, proving your identity to yourself is far more important than getting amazing results. This is especially true at first.
If you want to get motivated and inspired, then feel free to watch a YouTube video, listen to your favourite song, and do P90X. But don’t be surprised if you burn out after a week. You can’t rely on being motivated. You have to become the type of person you want to be, and that starts with proving your new identity to yourself.
Most people (myself included) will want to become better this year. Many of us, however, will set performance and appearance–based goals in hopes that they will drive us to do things differently.
If you’re looking to make a change, then I say stop worrying about results and start worrying about your identity. Become the type of person who can achieve the things you want to achieve. Build the habit now. The results can come later.
