Persistence + Focused Effort = Success

I thought I would share a Monday Motivation post… …What you see in these pictures apply in fitness, health, business, or any other goal. The pictures show three recent dates but those who know me would tell you this work started way back in 2016.

From 2016 up to recently this year, when I mentioned that I worked out, the person who didn’t know me would think I was lying. In fairness to them, I didn’t exactly represent the results of the hours I was putting in so why should they believe me. I constantly reminded myself I was doing this for myself 1st and my family 2nd not for others to believe that I was working.

I honestly faced road block after road block, obstacle after obstacle, injury after injury, and many months in a row without losing a single pound on several different occasions. I stayed at it and I stuck to the plan…

How does that apply to business or your other goals? Its simple, most failure is not the result of the inability to complete an impossible task. Rather, it’s the result of the inability to continue when things don’t go as planned, or the lack of willingness to continue when it takes more time than expected.

In business it’s the decision to make call 213 after you’ve heard “No” 212 times. In health it’s sticking to the healthy eating habits when you’ve been eating right for six months and your blood work is still not in the best range. In fitness it’s sticking to the workout routine when the six pack doesn’t come in three months. In any goal you have its continuing to push forward when your initial efforts don’t end with the intended result.

Life is teaching me that almost anything is obtainable with persistance and focused effort.

Persistence and Focused Effort have served me well in fitness, health, and business so I thought I would pass the word…
