Nothing in life comes easy! It’s our perception that makes us believe some things are easier to achieve than others. That is because of the knowledge, experiences, and training that we have already gone through, not so much because the skill is easy. Think back to when you took your first gymnastics/tumbling class. You were probably a toddler without any flipping, stretching, squeezing your body experiences or even ideas how to do so. A handstand, forward roll, cartwheel or even a bridge seems like a hard skill. You had to train your body and mind in order to get them. Some took longer than others, but most skills you didn’t gain over night. As this is true for physical skills and ability, it is also very true for mental ones. In fact, it is much harder to train your mind than your body. Remember that your body does what your brain commands. Working out daily is not hard for your body, but can your brain get you to the gym every day? Not eating fast food is not hard for you body, but can you fight your urge not to drive through that drive-in?
I would like you to adopt and be conscious of this mentality throughout The Pre-Hab program. It will not be easy. Expect that and be ok with failure along the way. Wise man – Winston Churchill once said
Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.
Failure will come in different shapes and forms. Unexpected things will happen and you will not be able to control the situation. That is perfectly OK! It’s how you handle, overcome and what you take from these situations that will either break you or make you. Remember, it is your brain that controls the body and it is you who controls your brain. Training your brain is essential and crucial for success.
I would love for you to be successful, not only in The Pre-Hab program but also in other aspects of your life. To ensure your success and increase the likelihood that you will succeed, here are some basic principles and rules to follow:
I will dive into explaining each law more in depth along the way, however, to sum it all up…When you set a goal it takes commitment and preparation in order to become accountable and stay consistent. Being honest to yourself, patient with the process and conscious of all that is happening inside and out, will shape you as an individual and significantly improve growth and development of a better you.
