1 Step Forward or 2 Steps Back?

Hello Fitastic Family!!

I hope this week and summer season has been serving you well. Im coming at you short and sweet this week. This week we are going to focus on what direction you are moving. As we all know real goals, true goals, take time. A real goal will not happen overnight; especially if that goal is health and fitness related. Its going to take a lot more than a few salads and a handful of trips to the gym to build the body that you want. I know sad but true.

So this week I want you to do what I did. Go to your bathroom or bedroom mirror and ask yourself out loud are you honestly taking the right steps nodump-and-load matter how small they may be everyday to reach your goals. Go ahead, ask the question. Then give yourself the honest answer. Truth be told my honest answer was NO! Yes, you heard right me, Wild Will himself was taking steps backward heading in the wrong direction. I wasnt doing it because I was lazy or didnt want to achieve my goals. I was going backward because I wasnt focused on the prize and I wasnt being honest with myself. I looked in the mirror and had a good long heart to heart with myself. Im sure my wife was very confused as to why I was talking to myself in the mirror, but whatever that stuff works. Its just you vs. you when you are talking to your reflection.

I admitted a lot of things I did not want to admit. Similar to how an addict has to say the words out loud. Hi my name is Will and I am addicted to….whatever it may be those words are freeing. Say your short comings out loud, say your addictions out loud, and admit the truth out loud to yourself right in front of yourself. I am telling you, you will feel so liberated, so free.  In any situation honesty is always the best policy and it is so important to be honest with yourself. Otherwise those skeletons in your closet with just eat you up day by day. Destroying you from outside in till you finally give up; giving up cannot and will be an option for any of us.

download (1)Remember to ask yourself each night as you lay your head upon your pillow this question. Did I take another step forward in reaching my goals? If you can answer yes to each day then I promise you as the days go by, the goal, the win, the victory gets closer and closer. Vice versa that more days you say “no” the further and further and further your goals fall away from you.  Take a step, no matter how small it is, just take it. Do what you need to do to reach your goals. Now go in the bathroom or bedroom and talk to yourself in the mirror. Have a good long talk with yourself. I promise you that you will feel so much better about everything in your life once you and you have a good heart to heart.

Have a great week everyone!
