You have heard this over and over, setting goals is extremely important to your success in whatever it may be. You hear this so often simply because it is true.
If you set out in your car to drive somewhere, but have no idea where the place is, odds are that you will never get there. The same is true for fitness goals! When you start a workout program you have to know where you want to go, or you will end up nowhere.
Find a place you want to arrive at, whether that is 30 pounds less, 15 pounds stronger on a certain lift, whatever it may be.
The most important thing is setting goals to reach
The most important thing in the world is setting goals to reach, and doing everything in your power to reach them. However, reaching your personal goals is not always easy, and that is a good thing!
GROWTH HAPPENS OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
If you only do easy lifts, or find the easy way out of work all the time, you will never grow and get better at what you are doing. It is so imperative that you push yourself to be uncomfortable and do things you normally would not do, in order to get places you have never been.
With all that being said, enjoy the process!
Thrive off of the difficulties, be hungry for more growth. No matter what it is that you are aiming for, appreciate the process and embrace all the struggles you have to go through, it will make the end result much sweeter!
