I used to think success meant building companies as fast as possible and making loads of money. Then I went bust. Twice.
Think about how many other businesses do the same thing. They make loads of cash and then collapse.
That’s not what success looks like.
You can apply this to weight loss too. How many people lose weight and then put it back on? You might have done it yourself.
Here’s the key – fast isn’t always best.
Solid is best. You need a solid foundation or everything will fall apart. A business without a foundation collapses. A person trying to lose weight without something solid behind their efforts puts the weight they lose back on.
Fast is temporary.
We’ve got to be so careful about how we view success. There’s so much of this win, loss, win, loss stuff. It’s all fast and you want it right now. But if you get it fast, you’re not going to keep it.
Success comes from playing the long game. It comes from figuring out how to make yourself happier and working towards it.
That brings me back to the mindset point that I’m always making. Get your mind right and you’re building your foundation.
The weight loss will come from there. It may not come straight away and that’s okay. It will come.
And once it does, you’re going to be in a place where you escape that cycle of weight loss and gain. You’ll have the mindset you need to keep the weight off and live a happier and healthier life.
That’s what true success looks like.
Now here’s the challenge with true success.
It looks slow because you don’t see it right away. When you’re doing all of that foundational work, you’re not seeing these massive changes that you want to achieve.
But it’s the stuff that people can’t see that’s going to get you where you need to go. It’s this stuff that’s going to help you sustain your success, rather than giving you a quick win that goes away as fast as it came.
Building your mindset foundation is the key.
I believe in you.
