Let’s imagine for a second that you’re training someone at work. They’re brand new and it’s your job to show them the ropes.
Immediately they start peppering you with questions like:
“Hey, when do you think I’ll be eligible for a promotion?”
“So, uh, how long do you think it will take for me to get that promotion?”
“How much money will I make if I can get your job?”
If you didn’t roll your eyes, you’d probably be thinking (or saying), “Dude. Slow your roll. The only thing that matters is that you master your job NOW. That you do your best NOW. That you do the work that is in front of you right now…If you do that well, the promotion will take care of itself”
Patience, right? You gotta do the work. If you focus on doing the work, you don’t have to worry about the promotion or the speed of advancement. If you’re too busy thinking about where you want to go, you’re missing out on the opportunity to master where you’re at right now. And THAT is what is required to get where you want to go.
Invest in the process, not the outcome.
That, my friends, is the one thing you’ll need for fat loss. Patience.
Dude, slow your roll. The only thing that matters is that you master what you’re working on NOW. That you make good choices TODAY. That you practice consistency TODAY.
Stop worrying about how quickly you can lose 10 lbs or how you’ll handle that party next weekend.
Handle THIS moment. Do your best RIGHT NOW.
Focus on doing the work. That’s the one thing you’ll need for fat loss that you probably don’t have. Patience.
