I doesn't matter how motivated you are, or how driven you are. Not even how profound your goal is. Often times these things provide you with false hope for the future. All of those qualities require a certain level of willpower.
As we're sure you already know, willpower dies fast.
Think about those New Year's resolutions you have had in the past. How successful were you? If your answer is “very successful”, then congratulations, keep up what you’re doing because it’s working. For the vast majority of us, however, the answer is probably that you didn’t last more than two weeks.
If you’ve been battling behavioral change for what feels like a lifetime, willpower simply isn’t enough. If you’re serious about your goals, a change of environment is what you need. What better environment to be in than with people on a similar journey as you? Below are a few examples of communities you could join:
- Group fitness classes
- Small group personal training
- Crossfit or crossfit-like gyms
- Running groups
- Biking groups
- Swimming groups
