Little goals leads to big goals

The hardest part to attaining goals is pre-payment. The goal is attained only after you?ve paid the price or done the work. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Attaining a goal requires effort and you get what you put in. The life you lead today is a reflection of the work you put in up to the present. The life you lead in the future is determined by the work you put in between now and then.

Many people bite off more than they can chew. They set lofty goals usually while they?re caught up in emotion, work hard for a while, don?t see big returns, get discouraged and quit. Achieving big goals is a lot of work and fitness is no different than any other aspect of your life. There is an old saying that if you save your pennies, the dollars take care of themselves. We need to set and achieve smaller goals and gradually we?ll realize bigger goals.

To reach a big goal, one must set small goals. Remember, every journey begins with one step. Simply take your big goals and segment them into smaller, more attainable goals. Look at these smaller goals as rungs on a ladder. Not only does each rung get you one more step toward the top, you must hit each one to safely and effectively reach your destination.

Without the right mindset, it’s not worth the aggravation — and in some cases the expense — to initiate a change in your life. You must first exercise your strongest muscle, your mind, and put yourself in the right direction on the right path. How far are you going to get, driving a Porsche 911 Turbo the wrong way down a one-way street? Ultimately, will it matter if you used a Porsche or a Taurus, if you’re headed in the wrong direction?
