Do you find that you spend so much of your time worrying and scrambling? You spend your time trying to figure out what you need to eat to get the results that you want, how to fit in the gym in between shuttling your kids to practice while working . Let’s not get start on the thoughts about paying your mortgage, or what they’ll need to do to be able to go on vacation. Is your mindset so focus on what you’re not versus what you are?
People who are successful don’t need to scramble when they want or need something, not just because they have money, but because they’re in the right mindset and have planned accordingly.
You shouldn’t have to develop a whole new plan every time you want to do something or an emergency arises, because that can cause major setbacks in your path to success.
When you are always feeling like you are scrambling to pull plans together you’re making yourself unnecessarily stressed out, but you’re also setting yourself up for failure.
Raise your hand if everytime you scrambled it worked AWESOME!
Are you picking up what I’m putting done. Nothing good gets done at the last minute, and those plans will usually fall apart early due to hasty decisions.
I challenge you to start working on creating a long-term outlook. I get it, it can be a bit challenging, but you will be ahead of the curve because 80% of people in this world fly by the seat of their pants. Have ever not prepped your meals saying that you know what to eat and then life happens and you’re pulling up to a drive through ordering a burger and fries because you are just too hungry to think.
Successful people stay away from this kind of behavior because it typically slow down your results.
Instead of each week sit down and create a menu so you know what you are going to eat. Hit the grocery store to stock up and then do some form of meal prep. I’m not saying you need to spend hours in the kitchen, but know your downfalls and what makes sense to prep.
Typically, when I would come home form work the time to dinner was endless. I could easily mindlessly pick on stuff OR I could know that’s my downfall and make sure I have something prepared, so I can just come home and heat it up OR I could chop up piece of fruit and eat that while I cooked.
Another thing that successful people tend to do is have back up plans. They sit down and determine when they are going to workout in a given week. Then have a contingency plan in place in case life throws them a curveball. Maybe they work out in the morning and that’s not possible they will shift to later in the day or weekend. They have a contingency for food, they may have shakes or bars that they keep in their cars, gym bags or desk so they don’t skip a meal do to take.
Don’t let things like this set you back in life. Start thinking to yourself what are some “plan bs” you can come up with to help you hit your health and fitness goals.
