The first step to meeting any fitness goals, is allowing yourself to be reinvented. As you progress in your fitness routines, you will reach milestone gains, and along the way, you will change-inside and out. By the “end” of your transformation, you will not be the same person, with the same body that you began your journey with. Your body will be new, and it’ll have new capabilities. This is a POSITIVE.
However, there will be great resistance.
Your own psychological barriers you have set for yourself will resist the idea of change. How could you possibly be ok with changing? You are who you are. The person you become after reaching several of your fitness goals will still be you, just a STRONGER you. The “weak you” won’t like this. You will have to get over this.
Then there is the more pronounced psychological prison that comes from the outside. People in your life have come to know you in a certain prism. They may even keep you around because you either make themselves feel greater, or you reaffirm their bad habits. They will not want this to change, because then they will be left vulnerable. Resistance on their part is an understatement. You will grow stronger as you stay committed to your transformation, and they will grow ever more insecure. You will have to ignore this. People will throw every negative vibe your way, with total disregard for your happiness and even safety. Don’t think of theirs. They are on their own journey. Yours is one of strength, character, and self betterment.
Don’t allow the detractors get you down. They know you’ll leave them in the dust. This is a good thing.
