The end of the year is upon us, and we all are doing the holiday thing! We are eating, drinking, shopping and thinking about how next year is going to be great! You are most likely planning out all of your New Year’s resolutions and the actions that you will take in 2021 to make it the best year ever! This year they are going to be serious because after 2020 we all need an amazing year!
The truth is that most people don’t stay committed to their New Year’s resolutions for many reasons. One reason for this is that they make too many broad goals and when you try to accomplish everything you achieve nothing. By focusing on and achieving one thing even if it is small the results will begin to compound!
The reason I like fitness and martial arts as the one focus for the new year is that it encompasses so may components that will have a resounding effect on other aspects of your life. It doesn’t matter whether you are five or fifty, getting into optimal physical shape and mental condition will change how you see yourself and any situation that you may encounter – here is how.
I am sure that you have a lot of plans for 2021! I know I do, but it all starts with your mental and physical conditioning. If you don’t have your health you really don’t have anything. Joining a gym or buying a treadmill is one thing but making a commitment to join a team where the mission is to help you achieve your goals is totally different!
Being part of a smaller fitness center, gym or martial arts academy puts you around other people that are similarly focused. You will always be like the people that you are around the most, but if you are with team that want to help you improve every time you see them you will be much more likely to accomplish your goals.
Remember, start small! Instead of saying I am going to lose 30 pounds this year, I am going to train every day, I am going compete in a tournament or fight in the UFC. Just commit to coming to a class or two every week. Set the day and hold yourself accountable for making it there no matter what. Tell your team about your commitment and they will hold you accountable as well.
Happy Holidays Everyone – I hope to see you all on the mats next year.
