This is fitness. Well, actually its a tree...stay with me. The tree represents your fitness level. The soil is your mental state (whether positive or negative). The hands are your source of direction (magazine, trainer, coach etc). What most people want to do is try to rush the growth of the tree. Unfortunately, you can yell at it all you want but you can't MAKE it grow faster. If you water it too much, it drowns. Too much sunlight and it burns. That's similar to fitness shortcuts like fad diets, harmful chemicals and overtraining. If the soil is contaminated, it won't grow no matter what you do. If an inexperienced set of hands tries to nurture it, the tree is doomed. The point is, you have to be patient on your fitness journey. You have to maintain a positive and healthy attitude about yourself and your body. And you simply can't just let anybody guide you. Changing your lifestyle requires you to stick to a simple routine over a long period of time. That's how you got out of shape right? You ate poorly and exercised rarely over a long period of time.Thats exactly how you get back IN shape. You'll eat better and exercise regularly over a long period of time. You're not going to make the tree grow faster than its capable of. One of my business mentors says "give me HALF as much time as it took you to get IN trouble to get you OUT of trouble. Let's keep it simple.
