Top 5 reasons you're not progressing

TOP FIVE REASONS YOU’RE NOT PROGRESSING...

We all have great intentions at the start of the New Year for changes we’d like to make in our life, not least in the Health and Fitness sector. By March, perhaps some of these resolutions are starting to slip... If so, perhaps these tips will help you stay on track.

1. Your goal isn’t compelling enough

If you feel low in self-confidence, frustrated or embarrassed you need to use these emotions to fuel you into taking action! You don’t want to feel this way forever, so you must make changes and focus on how good it will feel once you’ve succeeded!

2. You’re unaware of your own habits

If you fail to see why you’re not progressing, it’s because you’re completely unaware or in denial of your current habits. For a few days, make a journal of everything you do, and you’ll realise that you must make changes to your lifestyle in order to move forward!

3. You value short term pleasure and comfort over long term health and happiness
If you are using food or alcohol as a reward, or to mask negative feelings such as stress, this needs to stop. The root causes of unhappiness ultimately need to be addressed, but you can start by responding with breathing or mindfulness exercises, for example, instead of eating or drinking.

4. You doubt yourself and are afraid of failure

Fear of failure can lead to too much time in your comfort zone, but you will soon become bored and frustrated. Start by setting a small but meaningful goal that excites you, not others, and build confidence gradually.

5. You let other people’s opinions dictate your actions

Are you doing what you truly want to do, or are you trying to please others first? Failure and being judged by others is something you must get used to in order to progress, as all successful people experience this.
