How you can be more consistent: Consistency over intensity

Let me know if this has ever happened to you before. 

I’m about to start something new.

  • A hobby
  • Diet
  • Exercise program
  • Relationship
  • Job

It could really be a host of things. I come out like a bat out of hell. I’m so excited to get started, I’m reading everything I can related to the “new” thing and I’m buying up any resources I might need.

  • Supplements
  • Gear
  • Clothes
  • You name it and I’m on it. I’m ALL IN baby!

Then it happens…

Two weeks later I’m ALL OUT baby! I’m either burn’t out, no time, other stuff has come up, this happened, that happened, someone else is to blame, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Insert excuses right here ______________________.

A few weeks ago I started practicing Yoga again (mostly to spend time with a cute girl) but hey, I’m doing it right? Turns out I really enjoy it. I’ve already noticed so many benefits.

My big fear is that I won’t be able to stay consistent with it long enough to continue to see these benefits.

So I got to thinking. How can I make sure I’m consistent with it?

You probably already know what needs to be done to achieve the results that you’re after but it’s failing to execute those things consistently enough to see those results that is holding you back.

I’ve been taking a look at other areas of my life where I’ve displayed consistency and using some of the success stories on Limitless to see what they did to stay consistent (thanks all).

I even read a frick’n book about it.

HOW TO START DOING EVERYTHING WELL BY CHANGING THIS

What does it take to do anything well?

Man, that seems like a loaded question doesn’t it?

I don’t know about you but there have been MANY occasions where I’ve thought to myself, and even worse actually said things to myself like:

  • I never do anything right
  • Damn, I’m such a sh*itty writer. My grammar and punctuation sucks!
  • There’s no way I’ll ever be able to do this.
  • I’m just too busy to worry about even trying that right now.

Maybe you’ve told yourself what a poor student you are. How you’ll never be good at this subject or that subject. Or maybe you’re a parent and are second guessing your parental skills.

Or just maybe you’re stuck in a plateau on your health and wellness journey and keep thinking to yourself that it’s pointless to even try anymore.

All of these thoughts, words, and expressions are not unique to you. We’ve all been there, said this, thought that, and have had similar experiences. The on key difference between those that are able to push through these things and those that do not is the way respond to them.

There’s good news, you can learn to respond more positively to these things today.

HOW TO BECOME A SUPERHERO. OR MAYBE YOU ALREADY ARE ONE.

QUICK NOTE: I just want to thank everyone that supported the launch of the Limitless365 Fitness Program. It was a huge success and it’s been really cool connecting with a bunch of you that picked it up this past week.

Now on with the show :)

Walk into my bedroom and you’ll see a pair of Captain America underpants, sketches of superhero kids, and a host of superhero logo t-shirts covering the walls. It’s fairly safe to say that I’m a little superhero obsessed and deep down I actually still think I can become one.

To me superheroes are symbols of perfection. Let me elaborate a bit.

They typically, but not always have the perfect body, hair, attitude, look, charisma, charm, and intelligence. Some of them have had to overcome what seem like insurmountable odds, tackle huge fears, personal demons, and distractions like Froto, Harry Potter, or Katniss Everdeen.

But what really draws me in and gives me hope for my own superheroness (yes this is a word) is the fact that they all have their own flaws, vulnerabilities, and confusions about themselves and life in general.

I find it easy to relate to superheroes not only for the reason mentioned above but also because much like you and I they play so many different roles in life.

  • Father/Mother
  • Son/Daughter
  • Significant other
  • Friend
  • Student
  • Career/Work

They always seem to shine in those moments when we picture ourselves struggling – they are able to handle problems us mere mortals can’t take and they are able to do so with no real agenda, judgement, or influence. It’s simply because they find value in what they are doing, are courageous enough to try, and are willing to accept any outcome.

My obsession led me to Joesph Cambell and “The Heroes Journey;” an understanding that there is a pattern of narrative that can be found in storytelling, drama, religion, mythology, movies, television, psychology, and philosophy that outlines the typical path all heroes must take.

What I realized is that all of us have the ability to create our own superhero story just like Superman, Batman, Froto, and Harry. In the face of adversity all of us can achieve great feats in life either for ourselves or for a group if we follow a similar path.

L365 FITNESS PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE + A SECTION OF THE PROGRAM FOR FREE

The other day I received an email from a person in the L365 community referencing a quote from the L365 Fitness Program.

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

She went on to elaborate a little bit and I wanted to share that with you all today simply because it gave me the goosebumps. It sums up what the program is all about.

“I think this quote is a really good reminder to stay true to myself through this process and into my new and improved life as well. I truly believe we teach people how we wish to be treated, so unless I put myself first – no one else will either.” -Kelly

IT’S HERE AND I COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITED :)

The Limitless365 Fitness Program: Building Healthy Habits for Busy People is finally here. After two years of on and off work it is now available.

This would have never been possible without you and the rest of the Limitless365 band of crazies. These last six months in particular are when I really put my nose to the grind stone and finished it up. Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 9.35.08 PM

For your dedication to the growth of the site and its community I wanted to give the L365 community a FREE section of the program. You can get the 28 page Nutrition Introduction Guide Book right here.

I always felt like something was missing from the program until your emails, questions, and all the comments that the community has sent helped me to add that little extra something :)

I’m now confident that the program answers all the questions I’ve received about how to build the healthy habits that lead to a life full of limitless health and wellness.
