It has been expressed for a long time that it really does take 21 Days to create a habit.
As one of my motivational coaches once told me… “the habits you train are the habits you gain”.
If you wish to be a fighter you need time. Time in… training… drilling certain things over and over and over again. Nothing fantastic or special… just over and over and over again.
My grappling coach, Marc Ritacco is great about always expressing this. “There is nothing that will speed up your progression.” You have to put in the time.
This is the same for my other instructor Guro Ron Balicki. He always says, “everyone wants everything fast… fast internet, fast food, fast martial arts!!!” They want to move to the next thing without putting in the time to digest the technique or drill they just learned.
The same is for our eating and health.
We don’t get out of shape over night. It takes time…. and in my experience it will probably take three times the amount of time to get back to where we were.
But it all starts with the first day…. and then the next.
It takes one step towards being healthy.
Then it takes the big “C” word…. “Consistency”.
To do something over and over again… just like the fighters.
To set your plan, prepare and then hit it with precision is the key.
“You got to plan your work and work your plan!!!”
Take at least 21 days and challenge yourself to form new habits.
You can even join many of us as we take the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare starting next Wednesday. 24 Days to better health, energy and fitness. Sign me up 🙂
Either way, start soon…. because time keeps on moving forward.
Now you just have to get moving with it and make something happen. Enjoy!!!
