Why Nike's slogan "Just Do It" is so powerful
We love the latest and greatest. We love to explore new strategies. We are always trying to "figure out" the best way to accomplish something. In this episode, Caleb is here to briefly discuss the immense power behind Nike's slogan "Just Do it". In an odd sense, it is freeing because it drowns out all the noise and self talk that can be so inhibiting towards our fitness success! Stop the excuses, get up, and "JUST DO IT".
Create A Reward System
It is proven that habits will stick when there are built in, structured forms of satisfaction with the habits. In other words, when you create consistent and attractive rewards for your habits, then you are much more likely to perform them. Fitness is no exception to this rule. Caleb breaks down what he simply calls "Level 1" and "Level 2" rewards when it comes to fitness and how they are so crucial to pulling you along in your fitness journey, while at the same time making the process significantly "lighter" and more enjoyable!
Set Yourself Up For Success
We often fail in life because we rely too much on our willpower. Well here's the reality...your willpower ain't that great. If we can learn to set ourselves up for success in our fitness journey, we will be well on our way to making some real change and getting consistent. How can you change your environment? What simple changes can you make that will lower the resistance to getting your workout in? In this episode, Caleb discusses the power of setting yourself up for success in life and how that directly applies to your fitness journey!
stop negotiating on what you KNOW you can do!
Another silent killer of your fitness journey is negotiation which by definition is "discussion aimed at reaching an agreement." We like to stay in the discussion phase but really struggle to move on to the agreement or decision phase. We so often say we are going to do something but then we allow ourselves an out by engaging in this back and forth, teeter totter type of mental game. MAKE A DECISION and STICK WITH IT. It's awfully simply, but not easy to actually execute. In this episode, Caleb breaks down the 3 primary ways in which we must make a firm decision with our fitness journey and how this will give you clarity and structure in order to move forward and reach your goals!
