Fitmark Ambassador Mike Lepree gives advice on the keys to lasting success
At some point everyone starts a journey to do something. No matter how big or small it is, the fact is you have a beginning, and an end. Whether it is to lose weight; build a Mr.Olympia physique; train for your first marathon or even climb a mountain, it is all a journey. It takes a lot of hard work, and dedication to accomplish these things, and you are likely to come to a few bumps in the road along the way. This article will provide you with a couple of keys to ensure success even when the gets bumpy.
The first key to success is Accountability. Most people don’t have a strong enough mindset where they can be completely 100% be dependent upon themselves to reach all goals and tasks that need to be done to reach their ultimate destination. So you need to hold yourself accountable to others. Let your friends and family know what you’re doing. Tell them all details, and then ask them to stay on top of you. They will be more than happy to I guarantee it. The more people who know, the bigger of safety net you have if you start to deviate from your intended path. For instance something unique is Bodybuilding.com’s BodySpace. If you are on a weight loss journey and don’t have anybody to help keep you accountable, this is the place you want to be. You’ll be surrounded by like minded people who are nothing but positive, and helpful. Seeing daily pictures of people busting their butts to make changes will keep you coming back, and keep you on your path. Give it a try…it’s free!!!
One of the biggest overlooked keys to long lasting success is Passion. Whatever you are doing, it must become a part of of you. It must be an extension of your soul. You must live and breath what you are doing. A lot of times when people start something, they don’t finish it, for a variety of reasons. But I can bet you one of the biggest reasons is they lost their spark. That is why when you make your journey a passion, you will become driven to want to finish it all the way to the end. Passion can be that final thing that pushes you over back on the road towards success. Don’t just be apart of your journey. Live it!!
There are a lot of keys to success, and I’m only just getting started with the ones you may not notice right away. Accountability will help keep you in line, and having Passion will keep your fire burning deeply, and help you light up a pathway towards the success of your journey.
