Imagine that you’ve gone back in time.
You’re somewhere around a year old.
You’re trying to learn to walk.
Most likely, you first started to crawl.
Then you learned how to pull up to a stand.
You were wobbly at first, but you were brave.
You started taking a few steps.
Then you’d fall.
Then you’d get up and try again.
Then one day, many falls later, you walked like a pro.
Eventually, you’d start running and jumping and climbing!
Now imagine if you’d given up after the first few falls.
“I can’t do this.”
“It’s too hard.”
“I’m just naturally not a walker.”
“This walking thing doesn’t work for me.”
That would be ridiculous, right?
Yet, that’s exactly what so many of us do when it comes to our nutrition and exercise goals.
It gets hard, we mess up, we fall.
And instead of getting up and trying again and again until it all clicks, we give up on ourselves.
Let me tell you a secret about changing your eating and exercise habits…
You ARE going to mess up.
You ARE going to have bad days.
You ARE going to give in to temptation.
You ARE going to fall.
But if you get up, dust yourself off, and keep trying, you will start to fall less.
And before you know it…
You’ll be walking, then running, jumping, and climbing like you never knew anything different.
PERSISTENCE is the secret to success!
