Perhaps you have heard someone say “people don’t change”. The truth is you can change, at least some things anyways.
As a personal trainer it’s my job to help people change themselves for the better. Healthy changes in life are good for you. Things like changing the way you eat, or how much exercise you do, maybe changing your busy schedule to make more time to better yourself. These are all changes that you can control. I know how hard making some of these healthy changes can be; I wasn’t always as fit as I am now. So perhaps I can share a few things that I have learned about making positive changes.
First, you need to know you have to change. Whether your doctor told you to change something about your health or you noticed its on your own, it’s the first and most obvious step.
Next, you need to be willing to change. Knowing you need to do it and actually being willing to can sometimes be a big step.
Third, you need to learn how to change it. Maybe it’s high blood pressure or being overweight or perhaps too weak in certain areas of your body that you need help changing. Finding the information to help you can be as simple as one click, phone call or visit to your local gym.
That leads me to the next point of getting help. A lot of us want to do things on our own. I thought I could lose weight and get in shape by myself but the process went ten times faster once I got the help of well informed professionals.
Lastly, you need to stick with it. If your’e in the process of making a big change in your life, often times sticking with it can be the hardest part. Sometimes deep down you might not want to make the healthy changes and whether you know it or not, you can sabotage all your efforts. So stick with whatever plan you are on and never give up! By staying positive and always moving forward you can’t possibly fail.
