Imagine It, Achieve It, Dream It, Become It!
I received an sms from one of my clients this morning. No, it wasn’t an April Fool’s Day joke. Rather it was an update from him to me on his body condition.
I always believe that if one is serious about achieving great success in life, one has to put in some effort. You can’t just hire a personal trainer and then expect him to weave magic on you if you refuse to cooperate or completely go off tangent after the workout is over.
Now, this isn’t the case with this particular male client of mine. As a complete novice who was totally new to the world of weights and gym when he came to me on 14 Feb 2011, his faith in my training programmes, coupled with his own determination has paid off handsomely.
What I particularly admire about him is his consistency. He religiously ran twice a week and dutifully sms-ed me the details of each run. Now how many of you can identify with this? For many out there, wanting to run even once a week is already a Herculean task. But not so in his case. How he does it is to set aside time each week to do it. Well, just think of it as “me-time” where you do something good for your health and yourself in the long run.
I teach people sustainable skills which they can apply on their own. It’s no point fishing for you as you will be too reliant on me. Instead, if I show you the way and guide you along initially, you will find the journey more enjoyable. Yes, exercise is all about fun! Whether it is to build muscles and gain weight, or lose weight fast – my philosophy remains the same. It is pointless for you to gain 10kg overnight only to lose it just as quickly. Sustainability is the key to a healthy lifestyle in today’s context.
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it. It all starts with planting a seed of hope in your mind and then working on it to get that state you want to become. Life is all about being, it’s not about dreaming or wishing.
