Coming from a training background, I had to be creative with figuring out different ways to get my clients on track and excited about their goals. After years of experience competing in meets and shows, I discovered the power of setting a date. Out of all the tricks & methods I attempted, something as simple as committing to a date and writing it down, worked the most consistently. Agreeing to your date changes the inner thought process to take seriously focus in on your goal.
You may be thinking, “Cory, I don’t want to enter a bobybuilding show or enter a powerlifting competition.” Well guess what? I do this for both my training and non-training goals… it works inside and outside the realm of fitness! You always need to have something in front of you to work for if you want to consistently progress forward.
What lights your fire?
Are you going on a trip or vacation this next summer? Maybe you want to upgrade your car if you hit a certain bodyweight or body fat percentage. ONLY YOU know what drives you to kick your butt in gear.
Set the goal, then put it on the calendar, immediately. Once I have the date figured out, I’m locked & loaded with a tunnel vision that is hard to break. From then until that date, it’s all about achieving that goal. I’m confident you will find that same tunnel vision by simply putting your pen to paper. Let’s get started.
