Hey everybody, and welcome back to another Trainer Tip Tuesday, your source on all things health and fitness, directly from a certified personal trainer. So jumping straight into today’s Trainer Tip Tuesday. My tip for you guys is if you’re not achieving failure, then you’re probably not pushing yourself enough to reach your goals. Now you’re probably sitting there thinking that failure is the opposite of success. However, I’m here to tell you that failing is a part of success and it’s an absolutely integral part of succeeding.
The reason why failure is so important is that it shows that you’re pushing yourself past your comfort zone. Because if you think about it, if you’re operating within your comfort zone, you’re going to be doing the same thing that you’ve always done and that’s going to yield you the same results that you’ve always gotten. You see, in order to grow, you have to be uncomfortable and do something that scares you. Furthermore, failure is important because it shows a desire to change. Think about it.
Somebody who’s overweight and goes out to eat isn’t going to view that as a failure versus somebody who is trying to lose £60 is going to see eating out as a failure. And that signifies a paradigm shift. And that paradigm shift can help you use failure as a motivating factor. It will help you take on the mentality that I’m on the right track. I’m failing because I’m really trying to push myself past my limits.
Now all you guys need to do is pretty simple. You need to just fail forward, do something outside your comfort zone, and do something that scares you and challenges you on a daily basis. That’s how we grow as people. And the second that you stop growing, you’re dying. When you guys realize you have nothing to lose, that’s going to give you the freedom to choose.
Choose a better life, a happier you, and a healthier you. I want to leave you guys off with this one quote that stuck with me for a long time. It’s they say shoot for the moon because if you miss, you’ll end up among the stars. So guys, get out there, fail forward, and challenge yourself. I know you guys can do it.
