Three Mindset Shifts You Need To Make While Chasing Your Goals

We all know people who consistently achieve their goals… No matter how high they aim or how hard life’s cards may be stacked against them. They just have that terminator mindset and keep going no matter what. On the other hand we all know the people who consistently try to make change but no matter what they try it never pay off for them. Now if you’re reading this you may be one of these two people or you might be somewhere in the middle. Sometimes you get the win, but other times you try but just can’t get over the line. After working with hundreds of clients for the last 6 years and training for the last 12 years in Newcastle Strength Training, the habits and mindsets of the people who are successful or stuck have become more and more clear. This article will focus on how you can make small changes in your mindset and your responses which will have a large impact on your results. How Can I Make This Work This is one of the common questions I’ve found with people who are successful at Newcastle Gyms is instead of asking how to change the plan, they ask how they can change to follow the plan. Now I’m not saying you need to learn to follow strict rigid chicken and broccoli meal plans to get results. But, there’s a reason why your current preferences and actions have only got you so far and to make it to where you want to go some of those actions are going to need to change. Successful people realize that and ask for help of how they can change rather than asking for permission to lower the standards of their actions. Sure you might be busy and cooking is hard after work, but instead of resorting to takeout or easy meals successful people find when they could prep their meals in advance. Having trouble getting to the gym after work? Find a way of getting to bed earlier so you can go in the morning. There’s always a way to make change but the first step needs to be with changing yourself, not the plan. PEAKING TOO EARLY One of the most common problems a lot of people struggle with is looking at things from a micro level rather than at the macro level. The thoughts come too much on will this action help me lose weight right now rather than will this help me be at my goals in 12 months or 5 years. Successful people place their focus on where they will be over the longer term. They set goals that are way out of reach and day after day chip away at them. There’s no guess why most of these people are doing marathons, weightlifting or mastering gymnastics skills. The single workout matters that they are present during it, but if it’s a bad day they don’t carry that into


tomorrow. They just turn up, start from scratch and know that only they can be responsible for their own success. Likewise they know yesterday’s successes don’t earn them a cheat meal or a free pass to move further away from their goals. It’s the masters of the mundane that have the most success. DROPPING ANCHORS how do you make sure you stay strong when the world is pulling you in every other direction? Most of us just try to brave the conditions and wait for life to settle only for us to be pulled away from our goals and then to realize that life rarely settles down enough for you to focus on starting again. Successful people use these in every aspect of their lives. They book holidays that make them save money and want to look good for it too. Sign up for competitions and hold a high standard of them. You can find many ways of doing this but the main thing is that you actually do it.
