Do you know what is the biggest mistake made by beginners when they just first started exercising? Not the diet, not the postures in lifting the weight. But their determination. Most people quit after going to gym after few months.
It is common to see crowds flocking to gym early of year, especially in January, after people have made new year resolution to slim down, lose fat or build muscles. After first few months, the situation is back to normal because most people have already dropped out.
The saddest thing is that most people quit right when they are about to make substantial progress. You don’t fail when you are still working towards your fitness goals. But, the moment you give up, you are a failure.
Quitting should not be an option. Make fitness as a lifestyle. Don’t go to gym because you want it as a new year resolution, or want to show off your body during your beach vacation or wedding. You have to think beyond that – getting a healthy and in shape for life.
Don’t just try. Once you have this mindset “let’s just try”, you may have made quitting as an option. When you start make the first peddle on your bicycle, you know it is always tougher. Similarly with working out, the initial stage is tough when you don’t see obvious result. Do not expect too much too soon. Do not get discouraged.
And do not ever quit.
