It’s resolution time.  The time where many people are looking to make changes to their lives, and specifically, their bodies.
 
As most us know, many of resolutioners will ultimately fall short of their goal, becoming discouraged and quitting their newfound routine.
 
Why is that?
 
There are many factors, but the most important, in my opinion, is mindset.
 
If the desired change is built on a negative emotional script, sticking to the process required becomes much more difficult.  This might sound something like “I dislike ‘this’ about my body, therefore I HAVE to exercise to change ‘this’ about myself.”
 
In my personal experience, people are far more likely to stick to a process long term when they come from a place of self-love- “Man, life is a precious gift, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to waste it.  I’m going to do everything in my power to be the best possible version of myself.”
 
The mindset that we go into an endeavor with is imperative to our success.
