Working Class Fitness LogoAttaining goals – especially physical goals (losing weight, getting stronger, etc) – seems like it should be a fairly straightforward process.

You’re here.  Your goal is there.  You want to go from “here” to “there.”

The old saying is that the shortest path between two points is a straight line.  So that’s what you do, find the straight line between here and there, then take that path.

But it’s not always that easy.

When you’re talking about physical goals, you’re generally tackling two different types of obstacles: physical and mental.

The physical obstacles are obvious. You need to eat less, work out more, do more cardio, lift heavier weight, hit the bag more, grapple more diligently, or whatever.  Those physical obstacles are the actual steps you need to take in order to accomplish your goal.

But you can’t ever accomplish anything physical if your head is jacked up.  And that’s where overcoming mental obstacles comes in.

At first, when you’re attacking a new goal, you’re always motivated.  You’re hungry.  You want that achievement.

But when the motivation wanes and that proverbial “honeymoon period” is over, the mental blocks can take over.

And the bigger the goal you’re trying to achieve, generally the bigger the mental obstacles you’ll have to overcome… especially in the long-term.

So sometimes, a smart plan of action is to work those mental blocks into your plan so that you don’t have to overcome them – at least not at first.  Worry about the actual doing of the thing (whatever will help you accomplish your goal) first.

Once you have a handle on that, you can address any mental hang-ups or habits you might have.

Check out the video below, where I go into greater depth about how to accomplish your goals your way… enjoy!
