Is This The Reason You’re Not Seeing Results?
Today I wanted to bring you a blog article as to why you’re REALLY not seeing the results that you want to see with your body and it’s not because you don’t WANT to see improvements.
Or that you’re not doing enough Zumba or eating enough superfood salads 😉
When we’re talking about achieving kick ass transformations or even if we’re at the start of our journey, the ONE THING that is isn’t going to help us get into awesome shape is having a goal.
What? Having a goal is a bad thing?
Well, maybe it is my friend.
Cos, here is the thing;
I’ll have you consider that goals are surrounded in ambiguity and really have NO IMPACT on whether you’re actually on track to see the changes that you want.
So statements like
- I want to lose weight
- I want to tone up
- I want to lose cellulite from my thighs
- I want to lose inches
- I want to feel better about my body
They’re all missing one thing; TARGETS.
There is nothing that is measurable about a ‘goal’ or a statement.
Which means you’ve no chance of hitting the bullseye.
Targets are the quickest way to change your body
Targets allow us to measure and set deadlines.
And deadlines allow us to assess whether we’re on track to achieve our targets.
So what happens next is that instead of hoping and wishing that you’ll lose weight, tone up or drop a dress plan, we’re actually PLANNING ON IT HAPPENING.
One thing that I like to do with my own personal clients to ensure their success and ‘goals’ become a reality is to have them follow a target set for their body transformation
Where we can set targets that need to be hit at 30 days and 60 days in order for the outcome goal to become a reality by the 90 day mark and so on.
Say for example that your goal is to fit comfortably into a size 14 but you’re currently a size 18, what targets might you need to hit to make that goal a reality? and is it realistic?
Maybe, maybe not
But for arguments sake, lets look at it here;
90 Days Target – Tight Size 14
60 Day Target – Comfortable Size 16
30 Day Target – Loose Size 18
Start – Size 18
Now obviously we’ll be measuring inches, body fat, taking photos, setting food diaries and have a structured exercise program within the system but now we have CLARITY on what the goal is and FOCUS to execute giving us a better chance of success.
And we’re simply going to take a huge target and break it down in manageable small chunks that you can cope with and not get overwhelmed by.
By each 30 day target it simply becomes a case of asking…
have you done the work – YES or NO
Remember to set targets and NOT goals.
