The 2nd Law Of Success

Hey gang, back again with this week’s edition of the 4 Laws of Success.

Last week I listed those laws, expressed my belief in the difference they make for me and my most successful clients, and shared a bit about the 1st law, The Law of Possession. In a nutshell, it’s this:

We must each take full responsibility for our own fitness journeys.

We at Inspire are your guides, your cheerleaders, your co-pilots. But make no mistake. YOU are the pilot, the captain of your team. Own that, and be awesome!

Today, let’s take a look at the 2nd law, the Law of Effort.

Seems pretty straightforward? Kind of a “no pain, no gain,” “just do it” thing, right? Absolutely.

This law dovetails nicely with the Law of Possession, in that as captain of your team, YOU choose the intensity with which you work out, the amount of effort you expend. Not just the amount of effort you put into a workout, but the amount of effort you put into fully executing a positive, life-affirming change in your life.

You’ve heard this before:

“Anything worth achieving is worth working for.”

Eating well and working out on a regular basis takes commitment (“show up” daily), discipline (train hard, eat well), will power (don’t eat junk), and a willingness to accept delayed gratification.

There’s also MUCH to be said about not just showing up for workouts, but really putting forth your best effort each time. I ran across this today:

“All that you do, do with your might.

Things done by halves are never done right.”

Bottom line? You get out of your workouts exactly what you put into them. So really bring it at every training session, every class. Make the effort to eat well, get good rest on a consistent basis. The rewards of doing so are life-changing!
