If you’re focusing on fat loss, building muscle or improving your health in some way, keep this in mind: It will likely take you months, and possibly years to get the results you want. Most people don’t want to hear that, and I get it. Try not to let this discourage you because time will pass anyway, you might as well get off the couch and do something.

It doesn’t help that we live in a society where every convenience is at our fingertips and our needs can be met in a matter of seconds with the touch of a button. In 2022, there’s no reason to delay instant gratification and cultivate discipline, which is the biggest problem we face.

If you can set your bad moods aside, exercise when you don’t feel like it, and stay consistent with everything (while expecting setbacks and rolling with the punches), you will get the results you want.

You can’t expedite good health. If you’ve spent decades living a sedentary life, and eating whatever tastes good, it’s going to take at least a year to unlearn specific habits, and adjust your mindset.

The good news is, it’s never too late to adopt healthy habits. You can start today. If you mess up, wipe the slate clean and begin again. It’s as simple as that. As long as you are alive, you are a work in progress.
