Stop Falling off Track and Take Responsibility

performance coaching

Are you someone who frequently feels like you've "fallen off track" on your fitness journey? Do you find yourself using figures of speech that distance yourself from taking responsibility for your actions? If so, this podcast episode is specifically for you. It's time to challenge these language patterns and reframe your perspective.

Let's address the notion of "falling off track." When we use this expression, we unknowingly shift the responsibility for our actions or lack thereof to an imaginary track or wagon. By attributing our failures or setbacks to these external factors, we diffuse our personal accountability. The truth is, there is no physical track, wagon, or effort flying out of the window.

Instead of saying you fell off track, it's crucial to clearly identify what actually happened. Did you stop exercising? Did your nutrition slip? Did you neglect other aspects of your goals? By acknowledging the specific actions or lack of action, you can regain control and create strategies to overcome these challenges.

Language plays a powerful role in our ability to transform ourselves. When we use figures of speech, we dilute our responsibility and hinder our potential for change. By replacing these expressions with direct statements about our actions, we empower ourselves to take charge and find effective solutions.

It's time to break free from the common habit of using figures of speech on our fitness journey, or any other goals we strive to achieve. By embracing responsibility and clear communication, we open doors to new possibilities and solutions. So let's eliminate phrases like "I fell off track" and instead focus on identifying what actions we haven't taken.

Take a moment to reflect on the impact of your words and commit to eliminating these figures of speech. By doing so, you'll create a mindset that empowers you to navigate challenges and find success. Remember, this shift in language isn't limited to fitness but can be applied to any goal you set for yourself.
