Simplify Your Process

Stop Doing What Doesn’t Work!

The things that you struggle with the most are more likely the important things you need to achieve your goals.

Most people I talk to find it hard to maintain consistency and drop off the wagon when life becomes too hard (aka lockdown, and life itself)


So how do you gain consistency on the things that you want, rather than the things you don’t want? Doesn’t it suck to stay consistent on struggling all the time?!

Let’s be honest, if you want to achieve sustainable results with anything in life, you need to be consistent for more than your typical 6 challenges!

No podcasts, Facebook group content, or online diet plan and exercise program can get you sustainable results unless you’re taking the right actions, consistently over time!

The road to success is not easy, but it is simple when you have the right actions to achieve the outcome that you desire.


Here are 4 reasons why you need to stop your approach:


  1. The Quick Fix Mentality


You can’t expect to fix a 5, 10, 20-year struggle in weeks! Not if you want the results to stay a lifetime.


It’s about changing your lifestyle, habits, and mindset and all these takes time.


Your commitment for the long term and sticking to the process despite seeing no changes in the scale is key to staying consistent.


Lose the “instant gains” mindset and stop expecting results to magically happen without the effort, the challenges, the ups and downs of your journey towards a healthier lifestyle.

There is nothing more exhausting than trying all the different diets and exercise plans, only to find yourself back to the same struggle.

What you create today is creating your tomorrow, one day at a time, one habit at a time, achieving small wins at a time.

Embrace those small wins, it might take longer to achieve your goals, but it’s much shorter than the time you’ve spent struggling trying get fast results over and over and over again.


  1. Perfection over Consistency


“I tried running 3 days a week and I couldn’t keep up after 2 weeks because I work long hours.”

“I cut sugar and carbs for a few weeks, but I didn’t lose any weight and I feel mentally drained.”

Sounds familiar?

Aiming for perfection will always throw you off your plan, it's why many people struggle to stay consistent to achieve long-term goals.


The truth is, you will fail, you will fall off the wagon, you will face challenges.

You will not be perfect. Accept it. It is part of your journey, your transformation, the path towards success. 

Aim and focus on consistency over perfection. It’s what will give you sustainability and longevity in what you do.


  1. ‘Go Big or Go Home’ Approach


As humans, we like to overcomplicate things. And then we get overwhelmed and lost in the process. Which leads to anxiety and frustrations.

Eventually, we think that’s it…we’re just meant to be overweight, depressed, lost, and feel like crap.

Why are we so hard on ourselves?

Because we expect too much, too quickly. We do things in big chunks. The harder we go, the faster we get to the results, right?



  • Simplify the process. 
  • Take smaller steps.
  • Celebrate small wins.


Doing less will make you so much happier than chasing more.

You can’t fix everything all at once within a short period of time.

You will only find yourself back to where you started.

It’s much better to stay consistent on the small actions that make the biggest impact.




Be honest with yourself, if you can do it by yourself, why are you still struggling right now?

Wake up peeps, weight loss is NOT the problem.


The problem comes down to your self-limiting beliefs, your doubts, lack of confidence in yourselves, and giving too many f*cks about shit that doesn’t work out in the first place (and probably never will).


All this has a negative impact on your health, your relationship with food, and your overall approach to getting healthy.

It’s hard to stay consistent if you continue accepting your excuses, and the BS stories you keep telling yourselves.

Personal transformation is about the consistency of action, amid the inconsistency of motivation.

And when you have found consistency in doing the actions that serve you, you become a fucking badass human who no longer look for the “next best thing” for your health goals.


Health goals are no longer what you work towards…it just becomes who you are, it’s part of your being.



There you go…

I hope that helps.


Like many things, it is easier said than done.

So, if you are still struggling, STOP doing what does not work.
