Fitness Formation column

A favourite quote of mine is by Henry Ford, where he was talking about doing things that seemed impossible at the time.

He is quote as saying: “If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”.

Think about that for one second and think what it means. Another favourite of mine is the story of Roger Bannister breaking the four minute mile barrier to set a new world record in 1954. Again, people’s limiting beliefs were that it would be impossible for a human being to run one mile in less than four minute. However, on that day in 1954, Roger proved them wrong.

The point of this column is what happened next. Just days and weeks after the record was achieved, countless other athletes who’d previously never accomplished such a feat, began breaking all the records.

Why is this possible? One word, belief. People started believing it to be possible.

Back to to Henry Ford, with his innovation. Had it not been for his thinking and belief system, we might never have had cars and the freedom they give us.

Same for the airplanes, ships, spaceships, so on and so forth.

All limiting beliefs that are imprisoned within our mind and our self imposed glass ceiling. You want something in life? You can go do it. Do not let your limiting beliefs hold you back, or you will never release the brakes and get to where you want to be.

We are over half way in the year now, so you theoretically should be half way to achieving your New Years resolutions. However if you are not, do not panic. Just take a day out, think of your goals, hold yourself accountable, go seek guidance and work relentlessly every single day until you achieve said goals.

We are twenty three weeks away from 2015. That is more than enough time to get in the best shape of your life. Just think, come New Years day, I guarantee you that you’ll have wished you started on your journey twenty three weeks earlier.

The time is now. Go get it. We have a new team member at Fitness Formation, meaning we can now offer even more sessions. If you would like a free no obligation seven day trial, then just come to Fitness Formation’s studio on North Road in Lancaster and we can get you started right away.
