It’s not a surprise when people reach the targets they’ve set themselves. Success doesn’t happen overnight and neither does failure. But how does one become successful and see the results they want to see?
What separates these people from those that don’t?
1. Build good habits
Habits are natural to us, whether we choose to have good ones or bad ones starts right from the very first second of the day.
Do you hit that snooze button? (Is that a guilty nod?). Thing is, that’s the first habit you’ve already rejected. You’re basically saying ‘I’m not ready for today’. If you’re not ready for today how can you get out there and smash it?
You gotta realise these habits are what sets you up for success or failure. Tony Robbins calls them rituals. He’s a pretty good guy to listen to. Check out his video here:
He says it so well. Focus on a few habits for now and really make them stick. A few good options would be to drink 2.5l a day, or getting up 30 minutes earlier, or increasing your number of vegetable portions. Whatever it is, pick one and win with that. We live off positivity and so the more you ‘win’ and the stronger the habits are created, the better chances you have of making those stick!
2. Set high standards
You have a goal and you have the habits (or rituals as Tony Robbins says) and now you gotta make sure you keep them. Don’t let yourself slip by missing the day of a workout or a meal. If your standards drop, so will your results.
Find a way in which you can keep these high standards and begin to follow them everyday. It’s pretty obvious the higher standards that you set yourself, the better your results.
Successful people never let their standards drop. They’re used to continued success day after day because they strive to hit the high standards that 99% of us don’t want to know about.
A great way of setting high standards is by following The Miracle Morning rituals. Along with your affirmations and your visualisation you’ll soon realise that in order to keep up those standards have to constantly evolve and improve.
There aren’t excuses and if a workout needs to be done, it’s done. Here’s a great way to exercise at home to keep those high standards if you feel like you may miss a day.
3. Focus on YOUR goals
Successful people don’t get sidetracked by a birthday or a few friends. They know that in order to get the results they truly deserve and want, they gotta keep focused.
I’m not for one second saying you have to go to T total and be extremely disciplined. Far from it, but when these situations do arise, what separates those that crumble to those that stay on track is the ability to see through to the bigger picture.
It may be simple in swapping the chips for a plate of veg or salad or swapping from a glass of rosé to a spritzer. These small changes keep your high standards and solid habits as mentioned previously and still align perfectly with your goals.
It may take 6-12 months for you to hit your goals but you have to remember that’s ok, keep the thoughts at the forefront of your mind and realise why you’re doing it. At the end of the day it’s all about self improvement and who doesn’t want that?!
4. Understand you need help
You need help. Simple as that. Just like you employ people to look after your tax as you have absolutely NO IDEA what to do, you have no idea when it comes to exercise.
You’re probably one of those that does an hour of cardio in the gym. You hit all the machines, cross trainer, treadmill, bike perhaps and feel you’re working extremely hard but the results don’t show.
Cut to the chase and get people to fine tune your exercise for you. They have the knowledge and understanding of what to do and what will get you results. The quicker you see them and the more involved you become, you soon begin to realise that all these habits and standards play a huge role in determining the true success and whether or not you’ll achieve them.
There’s nothing worse than spending all this time and money on going to the gym and changing your eating habits if in a few months you won’t be getting anywhere.
It’s demoralising and you’ll end up going backwards. Talk to us or join an active group who are doing what you need to be doing. Which brings us nicely to the next point.
5. Be the least intelligent in the room
There’s a saying.
If you’re the smartest in the room, you’re in the wrong room. And I believe that to be 100% true. In fact, I couldn’t agree more.
You have to surround yourself with people who are where you want to be. Go out there and find them. They may be at the local gym, sports club or private fitness studio (AKA uFit). It’s your opportunity to go there and get to know these people. Understand what it takes to truly be successful. It may shock you.
Learn what they do day in day and day out. Copy those habits and follow the blueprints. There’s no faster way to success than modelling what’s already proven. We don’t have time to waste.
Look around yourself at the moment. Who are your closest friends? Do they smoke, drink or lead an unhealthy life? However harsh it sounds, if you truly want to be successful, you gotta move on.
We’ve seen it plenty of times here. People come, they set high standards, follow solid habits that are in line with their goals and as they evolve as a person their circle of friends change. It’s great to see. But what you will find though is that those that aren’t happy with themselves or are unable to make the life changes required to be successful will try to drag you back down to the level where it’s comfortable and you’re unhappy.
Never be sad you’re evolving as a person. It’s what life is for right? Constant progression.
I enjoy getting the most out of myself and that transfers on to my business and clients. I enjoy stepping outside of my comfort zone in order to test myself and grow as a person. You'll soon realise it's not that scary!
As well as keeping fit and training regularly I love travelling and experiencing new cultures and new worlds, it gives me a buzz and is a massive motivator to make sure everyday is better than the last.
1.1 THE PLAN(S)
All the meals contained within all the company’s online/offline meal plans are pre-set and therefore new recipes will never be created upon request either in advance of receiving any cycle (month) or during.
The set meals will be tailored in line with the company's own unique formula - this formula is confidential to the business and will never be disclosed. The company’s ethos is sustainability and enjoyment of food for what it is and not being a number to live by. Therefore, we do not disclose calories/macronutrients until graduation when a full report will be sent out.
When an allergy or intolerance is present the plan you receive will either be amended and/or a covering email provided detailing how you can manage things which could either be by removing specific ingredients or replacing them with others. We can only deal with certain allergies all of which are detailed on the questionnaire you complete in order to receive your plan.
It is important that you fully understand that the advice given from Team uFit regarding allergies is followed at your own risk and responsibility. Although Team uFit will recommend the use of products in line with your allergies or intolerances you must ensure that both you and your GP or consultant is comfortable with all the ingredients.
Our approach to calculating what we believe is optimum for each client is unique and by signing up the company's online/offline plans you are trusting this approach and whilst feedback is appreciated – disagreeing with our methods on the basis of other professionals point of view will not result in any aspect of the plans being re-designed or warrant a refund.
The training contained within the plan is also pre-set when you purchase ultrafit plan online. You will receive details on the exact structure to follow meaning the duration, rep range and amount of sets. This also includes guidance or correct lifting techniques through video links. Due to strength being such an individual consideration, weight on the resistance training section will never be specified and this is something you will have to discover through carrying out the exercises. The best results will come by following this and only this. Training is only permitted once a day and no more. If you wish to carry out your own training in place of ours you must specify this on the questionnaire by selecting the appropriate tick box. In this event the training contained within the plan will still be the same however you will not be following it. This will also be taken into account when tailoring the calories and macronutrients of the recipes. Please ensure you complete your age, height and weight on the questionnaire. We need both the completed questionnaire as well as clear body shot photos before a plan can be booked in and created. The pictures will need to be taken in swimwear or equivalent so that body composition can be assessed. Once your chosen plan begins you will be in complete control of the results. In order to achieve with this program you need to stick to it 100%, this includes, portions, meal timings, training, alcohol consumption and with eating out. It is not the responsibility of the company to chase you for any information. You upload through your own unique record link sent your updated weight and measurements as well as including up to date photos so that your body composition can be assessed – this is the only way to submit results. It is only when the company receives all this information that a new CYCLE can be designed by the plan development team and sent out within 3-5 working days. If we receive these details after 20.00 hours, the timescale will begin the following day. During the interim period between and cycle you remain as you are on the current one.
Once you purchase the ultrafit plan through Team uFit you have 12 months to complete. The plan is valid for 12 months from the initial sign up and needs to be completed within this timeframe. After this time your login details and membership will expire.
