Why do some people find it easy to go to the gym everyday, whilst other people struggle to go once per month?!?!
Why do certain people get amazing results whilst others stay exactly the same? or even worse…go backwards!?!?!
In this post i’m going to delve deep into the differences between Fit and Unfit people. The truth may surprise you…
The Ultimate Difference…
I’m not going to beat around the bush here, the number 1 difference between fit and unfit people is how they feel about exercise and nutrition.
Fit people have positive associations with exercise, they focus on how good it makes them feel, and how much better they look. Whereas unfit people see exercise as a massive effort, the money it costs (gym, clothes, personal training, etc!) and all of the sweat involved!
It all really comes down to how much pleasure and pain you associate to a habit as to whether or not you will embed it into your daily life or not.
Positives and Negatives Of Diet & Exercise…
I think it’s important to look at both positives and negatives…
Positives Benefits of Exercise & Diet:
- Improves health
- Burns calories
- Positively affects self-esteem
- Makes you feel good mentally
- Helps you live longer
- Improves circulation
- Enhances quality of life
- Allows you to do more (activities like backpacking with a solar charger through the wild, movement, etc)
Negative Effects of Exercise and Diet…
- Takes up time
- Costs money (gym membership, equipment, clothes, healthy food, etc)
- Requires discipline and focus
- Must be kept up (at least 70-80% throughout the year)
- Exercise makes you sweaty!
Where do you sit on the spectrum?
I guarantee that if you are exercising regularly (3-4x per week) you focus more on the positive aspects? and vice versa… if you haven’t exercised for ages I bet you are focusing on the negatives? or even worse not thinking about it at all!
How to Develop a Positive Relationship with Your Health and Fitness…
You’ve basically got to focus on the benefits! It may be difficult to start with, because your mind thinks otherwise but with time you can get there.
One of the most important lessons i’ve learned over the past few years is that when you set out to achieve a goal you must always focus on your INTENTIONS – the reasons for why you want it!
Focusing on losing a couple of pounds just doesn’t cut it for most, you’ve got to go deep and develop a burning desire so that nothing can stop you.
Law Of Attraction…
Rather than focusing on feeling happy when you achieve your goal, focus on feeling happy right now, and train your mind to believe that you have already achieved your goal – read more about the Law of Attraction.
Everything starts with a thought, I love this quote…
You can attract amazing things into your life by doing visualisation exercises, for example take a moment (1-2 minutes) and close your eyes. Imagine your body looks exactly the way you want it, notice the shape of your legs, muscles in your arms. Imagine the nice clothes you are wearing and the confidence you have walking around. Notice how good you feel about yourself.
The above is just a simple exercise, but done everyday can be extremely effective. You’ve got to get good at feeling good about yourself otherwise you’ll continue to attract limiting results based on the current beliefs you have about yourself right now.
Pain & Pleasure Associations…
What you need to do is associate pleasure to what you want and keep reinforcing it. It can also help to associate ‘pain’ to what you don’t want i.e. if I don’t exercise 4x per week I will get sick, gain weight, die young and not be there for my grandchildren! That’s pretty deep right? but it can also be pretty motivating too?
Make-sure to focus more of your attention on the positives and what you do want, but be aware too of what will happen if you don’t take action.
Everyone needs and deserves 20 minutes of ‘YOU’ time per day…
Whether you’ve got 10 kids, are the president of the United States, a Hollywood actor, business man, teacher, doctor, dentist or police officer – it doesn’t matter! Everybody should allocate at least 20-30 minutes per day focusing on themselves, basically quality YOU time!
For the next month give yourself 20-30 minutes each day where you invest quality time on your mind and body, whether that’s meditating or exercising at home (or in the gym!) give yourself YOU time.
After you’ve completed your YOU time notice how good your mind and body feels, give yourself a pat on the back and positively re-enforce this behaviour. I can guarantee that after a month you’ll notice such a BIG difference to how you feel and look that you won’t stop!
