So you’ve hit a speed bump, come to a fork in the road or just simply got outta practice…

If you’re anything like me and how I knee-jerk react to such situations, you’re probably beating yourself up about it, at least to some degree.

Now, I don’t understand this insatiable need to punish oneself for making poor choices. I can distinctly remember a handful of potential clients during the consultation phase who’ve told me things like, “I need to be punished for eating bad” or “I need you to work me extra hard because I slipped up” or “Make it so I have to crawl out of the gym” or anything else that fits in the category of repercusion for you falling off the path of your goals and plans.

Really? You’ve fallen off, gutter ball’d a few days (or weeks, or months or hopefully not: years!). Is that not hard enough to deal with?


Stop. Now. Stop whining about it. Stop talking about it. AND PLEASE for everyone’s sake stop Facebook’ing about it!!!

Forgive yourself. Learn from it. Get back on the horse so to speak. Make choices that are guaranteed successes. Build on that.

Forgive yourself!

    There is nothing more important in life than learning from our choices. Even if having “choice” brings you fear of making the wrong one. Most people see choice as a negative, but the reality of it is choice brings us freedom. Forgiveness also brings personal freedom, as you can’t undo what has been done and you have no choice but to look forward and move in that direction. Life’s mistakes makes us who we are today and that shouldn’t be a bad thing. That pertains to all aspect of life, if you are training with Adrian he will work you to the bone no matter what cause that’s why we pay him.
