Here's Why Setting Goals Doesn't Work

Are you casting your mind back over the year that has passed
and towards the year that is beckoning us?

What most people focus on is goals they had and didn't achieve.

"I still want to get on stage"
"I still want to be confident in myself"
"I still want to win a fitness show"

"But I didn't do it this year."
"So I need to set some goals for next year and then I'll finally get there"
So we write down these goals yet next year when we reflect
those goals remain unfulfilled once more.
Next thing you know you have been thinking about it,
setting goals and not getting there for two or three or four years.

Most people just don’t get past the goal setting phase.

That goal is really just a nice thought that we have projected into the future and create positive thoughts around.

It's a dream
“My dream is to get on stage and win a fitness shows that iIcan finally feel confident in myself”

We have lost the plot when It comes to motivation, goals and positive thinking.
We have started to believe that just THINKING positive will make things happen, that BEING positive is the way to achieve our goals and ambitions.

Just "putting it out into the universe" is not going to make it happen

We get so focused on goals and dreams
and the negative flip side
which are worries and anxieties
that we totally neglect the things that actually create change.

So what actually creates change? It’s our daily habits.

It’s the things that we do over and over again.
It’s the things that actually have control over.
What we eat
What time we go to sleep
What thoughts we think
What we do in the gym

Setting goals will not change what you do each day
but if you set your daily habits up right you will inevitably progress towards your goals.

The trick with creating new habits is not to change too many things at once.
You’re a human just like the rest of us, changing too many things at once leads to overwhelm and it also leads to doing a poor job of allot of things rather than nailing a few things and ingraining them in your psyche.
Pick one or maybe two habits that you want to adopt.
Work on those habits for two weeks.
Aim nail those habits 90% of the time so that over a two week period you’re nailing 12 out of 14 days.

If you’re successful pick another habit and try nailing it AS WELL for the next block two weeks.

If you don’t nail your habit 90% of the time sit down and do a little analysis using the simple 5 Whys Formula. I

Essentially keep asking why you didn't hit your habit until you get to the root of has stopped you. Often it's not what you imagine.
Ie: "I only meditated 4 out of 14 days"
Q: Why didn’t I mediate?
A: "I was too busy"
Q: Why were you too busy?
A: "I had heaps of work on and the dog ate my homework"
Q: Why was work so overwhelming?
A: "I didn’t organise my calendar the week before and all of this stuff piled up on me."

Q: Why didn’t you organise your calendar
A: "I don’t have a habit of doing it."
Outcome: "I actually need to start using a diary to organise my work training and life. I'll nail that for two weeks and then start my meditation habit"

That should be the habit she adopts first so that she can organise her time and then fit in a ten minute meditation each day

You have dreams
You have goals
The next step is to learn the habits that will make you successful.

That’s what I teach the girls in The Sports Model Project:
How to make dreams and goals a reality by tasking control of your daily habits and your mindset and at the end they are transformed physically and emotionally.
I only accept girls who have been training
HARD with weights for at least 12 months
sorry F45 and bootcamps don’t cut it.
