Why Track Your Progress?

Whats up Motiv8ers,

Coach Ty here again

So for the past couple of weeks we having been giving you tools to help you improve your diet and help you take control of your health.  

How has it been going so far?  Are you counting your fiber? Are you starting to make a few healthier food choices and have more real whole foods in your diet? Have you started feeling better and having more energy?

Post below with comments and questions.  Let us know how you have been doing.  Remember we are all in this together and if you have any questions more than likely someone else has that same question too.  So ask away so we can start helping each other.  Starting challenges on your own is hard but together we can be great.

Ok, lets talk about another tool that I have been working on with myself that I feel is so important in this whole process of improving yourself.

This Tool is a Journal!

Lets kick this off with first talking about your goals. How many goals have you accomplished so far since you started Motiv8?  Well many of us might not be able to answer that question because most of us just don't keep track of our progress.  Well yesterday we took the Fit Test and that is one way to track your progress but another way is to keep a journal.  Remember the more you plan and keep track of the more successful you will be.

I just finished this audio book called "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" and my biggest take away was this.  

"What You Track Will Grow and Improve!"

Crew you can connect that phrase to so many things. Your budget, your diet, Your activity, Your productivity, your business income, your fitness etc.  If you don't track the important areas in your life how will you know what needs to improve or what changes you need to make.

With that Crew Your goal for today is too.....Find a place to Journal the information that is important to you so you can track your results and start growing.

Why you need a journal!?!?!?

As you make steps toward daily change document your experiences in a daily journal. By doing so you'll be able to look back on your Motiv8 experience and gain a clear understanding about which exercises and ideas worked for you, and which need more of your attention. Journaling is a good problem solving tool. It helps to provide valuable self-knowledge. We often examine ourselves "on the fly" but usually never devote time in order to get a clear assessment of the big picture of ourselves. Ask yourself where you want to go in your fitness/life journey. Spend time each day documenting the food you eat, the activities you're engaged in and what feelings or emotions are associated with those experiences. Remember, feelings lead to thoughts, thoughts lead to actions and your actions lead to the consequences that you are currently experiencing.

Select a convenient method to document your journey, one that is easy for you to get to each day. Whether it's a store bought journal, a blank piece of paper, a notebook, a word document, or an app on your iPhone, use what works best for you.

So Remember 'What You Track Will Grow.' If you don't track your progress you will still grow but you will more then likely not have a clear picture of the areas in your life that need work and need to improve.  So try your hardest to pay attention to what you do each day and lets start being GREAT together.

Crew Stay EPIC and Don't Forget to Be Awesome!

Coach Ty Out!
