Transformation Is a Process, Not an Event
I see so many people get frustrated with their triathlon training or healthy living plans.
They try to follow their training programs and eat right for a little while.
But then they give up when they don’t quickly, magically become what they want to be – a fast triathlete, thinner, stronger, etc.
So, let me remind you: Transformation is not an event. It is a PROCESS. And that process is comprised of countless decisions and choices you make over time.
These build on each other, bringing small changes that then manifest into the bigger results you’re seeking.
I’m reminded of the Rule of 10,000 Hours, which Malcolm Gladwell wrote about in “Outliers.” He found that genius-level achievement is only possible after putting in that much time. (And don’t worry – you’re not trying to reach genius level, here!)
This is true for any of the great athletes of our time.
They did not start great!
Mohamed Ali, Serena and Venus Williams, Mark Allen, Katie Ledecky, Michael Phelps, Michael Jordan
It didn’t happen magically after they practiced for a few weeks, right?
And, what’s best, you don’t have to spend 10,000 hours swimming, biking and running or eating clean to reach your goals. Remember, these athletes changed the world.
You just want to change yourself.
You’ve got to wrap your brain and your heart around this impactful idea: Success takes time, no matter what the endeavor.
So develop your plans. Align your priorities. Do what you need to do to ensure that you’re following your training plan, eating right, managing stress, and maintaining a positive outlook on a daily basis.
You’ll learn the intricacies of your body and mind. You’ll discover what moves the needle and what doesn’t. You’ll make progress along the way and learn to overcome disappointment and set backs as those are part of the process.
The rest will come – IN TIME.
