It amazes me how much people already knew.
Many will come up asking for some friendly advice on perhaps nutrition, training or maybe sorting an injury and improving mobility and always give the answer of –
“Oh yea, I know that”
Often followed by –
“But what else can I do?” or “But what about XYZ”
I’m often left stood there like ‘Well, fuck me. They know as much if not more than I do, perhaps I should be hiring them’.
Yet even though people always seem, and claim they already know what to do, their overall aesthetic, performance and visual evidence often lead one to an opposing thought process.
Almost as if they don’t know…
I have a question I often come back with.
– If you know what to do, why are you not doing it?
Usually there is a plethora of excuses as to why they’re not doing what they need to be doing, yet they obviously could, if they really wanted to.
Do you know what you should be doing?
If so, why don’t you do it?
Do you really know what to do or is that perhaps a little porky pie?
I suppose that is a little unfair of me to say because it might try well be the case that people do in fact know what to do and have some crippling self esteem issues that sep them from executing the lifestyle changes they need, my apologies for being so brash.
Here is something to try.
Write down 3 things you know that you should be doing that would improve your quality of life (and fitness results too).
Now for the magic element.
Step 1: Re-read the three things you know you should be doing.
Step 2: Do them.
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 & 2 for continued results.
Give it some thought.
