What if I told you you're five feet from gold?

What if I told you you're five feet from gold?

There is one reason why most people haven’t yet reached their goals, and it’s a simple one. It’s something I struggle with as well, so I know it just may be the one thing that’s holding you back from your big breakthrough.

 

That one thing is consistency.

 

This doesn’t just apply to our wellness program, but how we approach our jobs, our parenting, our relationships… think about it. The difference that separates a fitness star from a couch potato is the consistency with which the former applies to their nutrition and exercise routine. The same is try with any other aspect of life. That’s it!

 

Look, I know you can do good things for yourself like eat well and exercise. You’ve done it before! But a plan only works when you consistently stay with it (given that it’s a good plan to begin with.) When you start, stop, start again, take a few days off, then get back on track, the haphazard effort will never lead to any change!

 

What if I told you that you’re 5 feet from gold? That if you simply dug in a little deeper, and stuck with the program with consistency, you’d finally achieve the big results that you’ve been hoping for all along.

 

You are 5 feet from gold; don’t stop now!

 

The fact is that anyone can stick with a fitness and diet plan for a little while. Anyone can complete a challenge. Anyone can finish a 30-day program. Anyone can put in 2 weeks of solid effort.

 

It’s those who click into consistency that see the big changes and experience the joy and triumph of real accomplishment. I want this for you.

 

I know that you see how valuable consistency is, and you want to do it, BUT if you find yourself getting off track time and time again, how do you tap into the consistency you need to make a real improvement in your life? Use these three steps…

 

See it: Define exactly what it is you want to be consistent on. For example, instead of saying that “I’ll start exercising,” say, “I’ll do the 8 am session on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.” And instead of, “I’ll start eating healthy,” say, “I’ll eat XX number of calories per day divided into 5 small meals.” The more specific the better!

 

Keep in mind that you are defining your actions – not your outcome. Don’t use this step to determine what size jeans you want to fit into. That outcome is a byproduct of you consistently doing the actions. Just clearly define the actions that you need to be consistent on.

 

Feel it: Now that you’ve determined the actions needed, let’s think about that outcome and clearly define it. Be specific! What will you look like? What will that new body feel like? How will your friends and family respond to the new you?

 

It’s time to get your emotions all tied up in your quest. Daydream about getting to that outcome, feel it, emotionally take ownership of the idea of owning it.

 

Do it: You’re clear about what you want. You feel invested in getting the results. Now go about the business of taking consistent action toward your goal.

 

Be consistent and you’ll soon strike gold. Yes, this sounds simple, and it is simple - but that doesn’t make it easy. This is why we at 5:17 exist - to help you break down the mental, emotional and physical barriers keeping you from living the life you want.
