Here’s the thing on quitting. You do live with it in your head for a long time, and one thing you don’t need is regrets to play with your mind.
 
So many of you who initially quit (for whatever reason), regret the time you quit you tell me in messages, but may not realise it until a year or two later, after you realise that short cuts and fads don’t work.
 
You tell me that even 2 years later, you are glad you got the fire in your belly to join again and finally achieve your goals but you also say that if you HAD kept it up, imagine where you would be now.
 
The ones who didn’t quit are people you see in the gym each day. They are not big talkers. but they are big achievers.
 
They thought of quitting too, but somehow managed to get through it the tough times, and developed the mindset of a champion.
 
I think everyone at the gym has special ability, but that ability hasn’t got any chance of coming out UNLESS you stick at it.
 
People aren’t a lot different, most of us have 99% the same DNA but it’s the 1% between the ears that ultimately makes the difference, keeping going when you have every reason to quit.
 
Everyone’s journey is different, but often the ones with the least advantages are the ones who succeed the most. They started off with little, and with each run up the ladder they appreciate how well they are doing, how well they are feeling and how far they have come.
 
With any effort in life, whatever path you choose to follow, it’s the QUITTING you need to avoid, because every time you will go back to square one and live with the regrets of what could have been.

Have you got the nerve to do this and stick this out? Really, it’s not that kind of superhuman effort it all, it’s all about sticking it out.

Sticking it out until you get better bit by bit.

Sticking it out when times are dark, but you need to know it’s often darkest right before dawn.

Sticking it out when you think you’re not getting anywhere, when in fact you are only just short of the finishing line, and one more nudge would do it.

The people who you see having great success with us aren’t superhuman, they are super people but nobody is super human.

They have cried many times, been fed up many times, we have had words on occasions, but we have sorted our differences out for the better.

It’s good to tell you the truth, no success story goes perfectly, and often goes in a zig zag way, up and down all the way, but work hard enough, do the right thing often enough and your good work will always come through.

So having the “nerve” is all about sticking it out, not falling for faddy rubbish and not being satisfied with just 2 months results, how about measuring yourself after 2 incredible years, now that would be incredible for me to see, and it will be incredible for you because people would be in awe of your progress.

Until you commit to living a healthy lifestyle, then the true greatness within you will never be realised. You have choices to make, you either be the person who comes and goes or you become the one who knuckles down, transforms your body and then automatically transform your life.

Waiting to work with you to get the best out of you.
