Sometimes, more likely more times than not, things don’t go as you plan them to.  The weather might change unexpectedly, the economy may shift in a blink of an eye, or you may find yourself lost and not even remembering what you planned for.  An endless number of challenges will arise that you may not be able to foresee.  That’s when improvising, adapting, and overcoming come into play.  We humans are masters at that.  But, we are also creatures of habit and we don’t like change.  The reality is that we don’t have to like it, but we better be able to accept it, because change is the only constant in this world.

Very few people are able to develop a clear vision of their goals and how to obtain them.  Even less have the courage and conviction to pursue them.  Beyond that, what I feel separates those that are able to achieve success and those that are not, is the ability to embrace obstacles and be flexible in finding new ways around them.  You are all already doing that be committing to this lifestyle.

The next time your in a workout that didn’t go as planned, tell yourself “Welcome to the New Plan.”  We are all on a journey of constant improvement, and that means constant change.  Everyday in the gym is an opportunity for you to train your ability to embrace change.  All you have to do is make sure you’re heading in the right direction; if you get lost, you have a whole community to help you out.
