Hi Mia here,
I was having a 1 on 1 nutrition call with one of our clients last night, celebrating a new habit she's been able to successfully implement and then figuring the next best step to take for her lifestyle as well as multiple ways to accomplish it.
See, I know that the way to success isn't throwing yourself into someone else's diet, making all these drastic changes at once, depriving yourself of everything you enjoy and shocking the mess out of your body. Not to say those things don't work. I mean drastic times call for drastic measures and actors do it all the time for their jobs. But take a look at most of them after the role is completed.
So do you remember the story of The Tortoise and The Hare?
There once was a speedy hare who bragged about how fast he could run. Tired of hearing him boast, Slow and Steady, the tortoise, challenged him to a race. All the animals in the forest gathered to watch.
Hare ran down the road for a while and then and paused to rest. He looked back at Slow and Steady and cried out, "How do you expect to win this race when you are walking along at your slow, slow pace?"
Hare stretched himself out alongside the road and fell asleep, thinking, "There is plenty of time to relax."
Slow and Steady walked and walked. He never, ever stopped until he came to the finish line.
The animals who were watching cheered so loudly for Tortoise, they woke up Hare.
Hare stretched and yawned and began to run again, but it was too late. Tortoise was over the line.
After that, Hare always reminded himself, "Don't brag about your lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race!"
Stopping and starting and stopping and starting does not win. It's impossible. It only leaves you standing still.
But if you're looking for long term success, if you're looking to win, that's when you have to become the tortoise. You have to take your time, find what works for you, then be consistent. NEVER STOP! Be consistent in your new habits. Be consistent in creating new ones when ready and/or pushing yourself in some way or another.
Each day builds upon another. Each time you push outside your comfort zone, you grow a little bit more.
The change you seek, whether physically, personally or professionally all begins with one step. The key is to keep taking steps even when it's challenging. Some steps may be peppy, fast and long and others may be dragging, slow and short, BUT each step counts. KEEP MOVING!!!
Dedicated To Your Success,
