Don't focus too much on the future, enjoy the process

I understand fully that it's easy to stick to something when it's your passion. I understand you can stick to something if you really want to achieve great results (and if you've clearly decided that it's something that you want).
In many cases, getting in great shape isn't actually someones passion, it's a short term goal, and often it's not something people give great thought to.
Now this short term goal, could well turn into a passion further down the line, I've seen it happen so many times.
Often people think that they've got to plan way further into the future when they even contemplate making some changes to their body shape.
I can guarantee that many people who are in great shape now (and find it easy to stay in shape), at one point simply decided to start eating a little healthier, and joined a gym, before it escalated into something that became a big part of their life.
Many people dip in and out of getting in shape, for months, if not years, before it finally becomes something that's easy to manage.
I think many people over look the fact that getting in shape is all about change, it's all about adapting your life, social networks, daily habits, and who you are on the inside.
We spend so much of our time, helping people when they dip back into their old habits. It's inevitable when you work with people who are trying to change.
My point to this short article, is to not focus too much on the future right at the beginning. Get started, surround yourself with people who have been through the change that you want to become. Learn bit by bit, don't get frustrated, enjoy the process, and I can assure you it'll all become a huge part of your life before very long at all.
If you focus too much on the future at the beginning, it all becomes way too daunting, and you often pull out for the fear of the change you can see ahead.
Enjoy the journey, it's truly life changing.
