Just because something is simple doesn’t mean it’s easy.
Think about it.
If you want to learn to learn German, for instance, there’s a simple way to do it: Just enroll in a course and practice vocabulary, right?
But is it easy?
It takes steady attendance, concentration, homework, and commitment over time before you’re ready to fly solo in Berlin.
It’s the same way with achieving your “perfect” body. It’s not that complicated: Eat right, exercise, follow the patterns to get the results you want. But it’s the discipline, motivation, and consistent work that keeps most of us from getting there.
There’s no solution that’s both simple and easy.
Actually, let go of the expectation that it’s going to be easy. And JUST SAY NO to anything or anyone who promises it will be.
So, before you set off in pursuit of your ideal physique, visualize what is necessary to get you there. Do you truly see yourself doing what it takes, for as long as it takes?
If so, then go for it, and good luck.
But if not, remember it’s OK to consider how much time and effort you’re willing to put into something, and then decide to pursue progress over “perfection.”
That’s probably a healthier goal for most of us, anyway, to make it really simple.
