If you want to consistently feel like you’re getting better, then you’ll want to follow these steps. Know that you are more than enough, just as you are, yet, you can always learn new things about yourself on this journey.
1st – Identify what it is that you want to improve. Maybe you see a gap in your training or your mindset. You might realize that something is holding you back. It’s important that you become aware of what exactly you want to change. You can start right now by making a list what you’d like to improve (both mentally and physically). It’s important to that you know yourself and can see where your weaknesses are.
2nd – Understand your gaps. If you’re always speaking negatively to yourself, know when, how and why. If you’re having trouble with your cleans, seek to understand what you could do better. Recognize why it’s important to you to change a certain habit. You can start now by working with a coach or a training partner who can help you learn more about yourself. If you want to be the best, you have to start digging in and understanding why you have certain thought or movement patterns.
3rd – Get help. Ask for direction from someone you trust. Seek out a coach. Do whatever you can to build a support team of like-minded individuals who will challenge and encourage you.
4th – Make changes. After you know what you want to change, and why you aren’t as successful as you’d like to be, then you can begin to try new strategies. Remember, not everything that you implement is going to work like magic the first time. You will need to practice, and learn, as you continue to work on your skills. You’ll want to be proactive, but also patient as you challenge yourself to make improvements.
It’s important to understand that real change takes time and effort. Follow this process, so that you can get the most out of yourself and your workouts.
