Focus on small habit changes for bigger long term results

We know that it's easy to stick to something when it's your passion. We also understand that 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 someone's passion, it's a short term goal, and often it's not something people give great thought to.
You may think that you've got to plan further into the future, or make big drastic lifestyle changes, before getting started on your journey. However, this is not the case.
Those who are in great shape now (and find it easy to stay in shape), at one point simply made small positive changes like deciding to start eating a little healthier or joining a gym, before it escalated into something that became a big part of their life. This is why making small daily habit changes is key to seeing long term and sustainable changes to your body shape.
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.
Many people also overlook 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.
The 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 we 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.
