"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right." -Henry Ford


Hello, health and fitness enthusiasts!

If you're reading this, you're probably looking for ways to jump-start your fitness journey or break through a plateau you've hit. We are all guilty of the faulty mindset of when-then thinking....WHEN I'm more comfortable THEN I will do some cardio....WHEN I am less busy THEN I will make time for the gym. WHEN I lose weight THEN I will take more steps to getting fitter. The reality is that thinking is exactly what is stopping you. Our brains want to put things off and our circumstances only change when you put things into action. The good news is that there's more to progress than just physical effort. Your mindset plays a crucial role in determining how far you go and how fast you get there. That's why we're here to share 5 tips on how to hack your mindset to start making progress!

1. Set 'DUMB' goals.

You may have heard of SMART goals, the problem is there is not enough burning desire built in them when you write them. However, 'DUMB' goals (destination, uplifting, method driven, behavioural) set you up to change you day, weeks and months with a burning desire to achieve. Write your ultimate dreams down with this method. refer to Brendan Bouchard's video on DUMB goals here:

2. Break it down into phases.

Once you have your big goal in mind, break it down into smaller actions that you can achieve every week and every day in your calendar. If you don't have a calendar use google calendar! Writing down your actions for the day in your calendar will protect that time for you against randomness in your day! This will help you track your progress and give you a sense of accomplishment as you reach each milestone. Celebrating these smaller wins will help keep you motivated and energised.

3. Create a routine.

A routine helps establish good habits and creates a sense of structure in your day. Whether it's waking up early to hit the gym or doing a quick workout before bed, make it a part of your daily routine. This will help make exercise a habit, rather than something you have to force yourself to do.

4. Stay positive and focus on progress, not perfection.

Nobody's perfect, and everyone has bad days. It's essential to stay positive and focus on progress, not perfection. Remember, progress is progress, no matter how small. Celebrate your successes and learn from your failures. Don't let setbacks discourage you. Instead, use them as an opportunity to learn and grow.

5. Surround yourself with positivity.

Surround yourself with people who support and encourage you. Join a fitness community or find a workout buddy. Having someone to share your progress with and hold you accountable can make a huge difference in your motivation and mindset.

In conclusion, your mindset is just as important as your physical effort when it comes to making progress. Set clear and specific goals, break them down into smaller goals, create a routine, stay positive, and surround yourself with positivity. With these tips, you can hack your mindset and start making progress towards your fitness goals! So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
