At one point, you were taught how to do every single thing you know how to do.
Once you were taught something, you had to train yourself to become better at it.
You trained yourself to brush your teeth.
You trained yourself to tie your shoes.
You know that you must train to get stronger. To build muscle. To lose body fat.
To be able to lift 100 pounds, you have to train yourself to do it.
At first, it might be challenging to lift 50 pounds. But you know you’ll never get to 100 if you don’t keep training.
So you keep training, and eventually you are able to lift 100 pounds.
Whatever it is that you start but always have trouble sticking to, happens because you are not approaching it as training.
On day one, two, and three of your diet you may have no trouble staying on track. But at the end of week one, and into week two is when things begin getting difficult.
You think to yourself that this just “sucks,” but it is really that you are right in the heat of training.
This is how it should feel. And it should feel like this for a while. For a lot longer than you think it should.
You have to train yourself to be disciplined.
You have to train yourself to eat right.
You have to train yourself to drink more water.
You have to train yourself to get enough sleep.
It will never be easy to lift heavier and heavier weight.
It will never be easy to run faster or to jump higher.
Don’t expect being able to eat the right things or being able to avoid eating the wrong things to be easy.
That is training.
