Commit to Your Goals
By: Loic Joseph
Every so often, I listen to members, friends or even family members mentioning to me that they didn’t reach their goals. After talking to them about it, it is clear to me that along the way, things didn’t happen the way they thought.
First and foremost, we should all set goals for ourselves. They need to be attainable and reachable. You also need to make sure you can quantify them. As an example, just getting better is not enough to truly get it.
Set goals in your private life, your business life and any other areas you think are important to you. Have some short and long-term ones. Always have your list close so you can look at it often, especially when things may not work out the way you thought. It is ok to change goals as you see it fit. But remember that you only live once so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Set yourself up for your own success!
Second, I think it is important to have a plan. I do believe in the saying (“if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” – Benjamin Franklin). So, take a moment to think about your plan. That plan will change over the course of time but you need one, like a road map to show you directions on the path you are taking.
For instance, here at Soco, in a very near future, we will have some added templates for our members that want to get a bit more out of their fitness. It is extra work dedicated to improving members skill in Gymnastics, Weightlifting, Strength and Conditioning.
Next on my list is your drive and commitment. Once you define what is important for you then it is time to go! Don’t settle for average if you can go to the moon! There is so much wasted talent in this world. We all were born to be great and we believe in your ability to achieve greatness! Things are going to get rough at times but you need to know they will also always get better. Your commitment to success should be your drive to achieve greatness!
Fourth, I do believe we all need a support group to help us at those rough times. You cannot do this just alone. It is ok to have support. For me, I would not be able to do what I do without the complete support of my wife. She is there for a lot more than just being my wife: she is a confident, my physical therapist, meal preps, mother of my children, etc…But with her help it makes me want even more in my life. No member of SoCo is alone; you have all of our coaches, staff, and members to contribute to your support.
Soco, set your goals and dream big!
Together Everyone Achieves More!
