Habits and Carryover
Good training habits make good life habits.
One of the most important things about fitness training is the person it makes you into. The challenges you face in the gym are good models for other problems in life – from work to business to personal struggles.
We all want to be able to work harder, build more determination and stay on our grind when it matters. Fitness, strength and endurance all help here.
The models of progress – setting goals and working at them, before setting more goals – is applicable everywhere. When you know that you can achieve things by breaking it down into smaller goals and daily practices, you start to see life a bit differently.
That business project you didn’t think you could do? Well, if you put a bit of time in every day and work towards small goals along the way, maybe you’re on the path to success.
When we look at the best athletes, the best fitness models, and the most successful people there’s a lot of overlap. Tenacity, determination, and accepting that big goals are long-term all adjust your perspective and set you up for life’s challenges.
Big muscles are great, but the confidence and carryover that come with training are the real gains you benefit from most.
