Want to improve on something? Then do it consistently. Don’t just talk about it. Don’t announce it on Facebook that you are gonna do it. By talking about the final outcome before you even begin working toward your goal, you set yourself up to fail. You fool yourself into thinking you already have what you want. Success comes from doing, not talking. So stop fooling around and go put in the work.

For example, if you want to build muscles and be strong, don’t begin by buying fancy clothes or gadgets. The process isn’t going to be pretty. Go to the gym. Don’t keep posting pictures on social media. Get down and dirty. Wear yourself out. Then go eat and sleep. Then do it again the next day. Keep it simple, don’t make the process complicated than necessary.

The most important thing is be consistent. There is no magic food or workout that will give you your ideal body overnight. You have to keep hitting the gym and take care of your recovery. Trust the process and the result will come.

Being lazy isn’t gonna take you anywhere. Find your thing. Show up. Be at the place that allows you to do what you love. When the time comes to go do your thing, drop everything and go.
