Putting in the work…

I’ll be blunt here….. I will never learn how to surf.  I like watching it on TV.  I think it’s cool.  I like the idea of surfing.  It looks like so much fun.  With all that in place though, I will never learn how.  Why?  I don’t have the time, inclination, or desire to learn.  First off, I live in Memphis, not many oceans around here.  Even if I moved somewhere with an ocean, I’d probably live on the Gulf of Mexico which doesn’t have many waves.  The truth of the matter is, I’m not a big fan of waves in the ocean.  Actually, I’m not even that big of a fan of the ocean.  Yes I like it for a little while.  It’s nice to visit, but I don’t know if I could spend all my free time out there.  I could find things I’m more interested in.  So, looking at the big picture, I probably will never learn how to surf.

Why do you care?  Because, training and results are correlated with this example.  If I hate working out, I won’t put the work in, and I won’t get results.  If I don’t spend time studying the craft and working on the things that I’m not good at, I won’t get results. If you don’t take an interest more than just checking off your 2 days a week of ‘working out,’ you won’t get your results.  

If you want results, you have to take up an interest in what you are doing.  If you’re not engaged, you won’t succeed.  If you don’t take the time to put in the work you won’t succeed.  If you REALLY want results, you need to focus on the ancillary things.  Are you doing the homework that we’ve programmed for you?  Are you following the nutrition?  Are you using your coaches for all their worth?  When they put together a plan for you do you follow it?  If you want results….. I mean REALLY want results, don’t just say you want them.  Put in the work, or take up surfing….. your call.
