9 (surprising) signs you will FAIL your health goals

This information is going to sound harsh.
It’s honestly delivered with care, to save you time effort and heart-ache. After 20 years working in the health and fitness industry, I see these signs time and time again.

Prefer to watch?


1) You still believe there is a magic formula / quick fix.

Pills, potions, gadgets, etc. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if there was a magic solution, everyone would do it and be fit and healthy, end of story. Please vote with your wallet and STOP purchasing this stuff.



2) You are addicted to your comfort zone.

Now I don’t love the other extreme either. Ie changing EVERYTHING.
But the fact is, some things will have to change in order to improve.



3) You don’t realise, you only get the result while you do the actions.

Think about showering to stay clean,. You don’t do it for 4 weeks and the job is done. You get the result whilst doing the actions.

Sure you could enter The Biggest Loser house (or do a similar program ) for X weeks and achieve a dramatic result, but what happens AFTER that is the most important factor.


4) You don’t accept personal responsibility.

You want someone or something to SAVE you.

Don’t get me wrong, a coach can HELP you, but YOU ultimately need to do the work.

You can’t outsource push-ups and saying no to the second serving.

I know this meme is meant to be funny. But it represents a lack of personal responsibility.


5) You expect perfection, or you don’t bother at all.

Life will NEVER be perfect. You need to accept that.
Roll with the punches and keep moving forward if you hit a speed bump.

Your perfectionism is causing you to fail.


6) You don’t want to learn anything.

“Just tell me what to do Chriss”
“Just write me a meal plan”


That’s like me saying to my high school geography classmate … “Just give me the answers to the exam”,  but never actually learning anything about geography.
Guess what happened?
I got a short term success, but I still SUCK at geography 30 years later. It can be quite embarrassing at times.
^^^ True story ^^^

Learn the skills and knowledge for long term success.


7) You ONLY want to learn.

Learning without doing doesn’t get you anywhere. By all means take the time to learn, then please, take the time and effort to IMPLEMENT.

Information is not the same as TRANSFORMATION.


8)  You are waiting for motivation.

I love this simple story from straight talking Craig Harper (someone I highly respect).

Young baristaCraig, how do you stay motivated to work out every day?

Craig Harper I don’t, but I work out anyway. 


Motivation is fleeting. Discipline always works.


9) You do it from a feeling of hating your body and wanting to punish it.

I can guarantee this won’t last long term. Please choose to exercise and eat well because you love ❤️ your body and want to treat it well.

If you recognise yourself in any of the above signs, I urge you to question your thoughts and try for a re-frame.
