People will tell you that getting started is the hardest part

 

This unfortunately is people trying to make you and themselves feel better

 

Getting started is hard but it is far from the hardest part

 

Showing up consistently is the hardest part

 

In a day and age where it’s easier to just start again

 

Where it’s easy to just blame what you’re doing

 

Or things outside of the gym

 

Where taking responsibility is too hard

 

It makes starting something new is easy

 

Staying with something to go from the beginner stage to the intermediate stage is rare

 

It’s why when we see someone good at something it’s easy to label them a natural

 

I have met a lot of naturals in my time

 

All of these “naturals” having something in common

 

They show up consistently

 

They trained when they didn’t feel like it

 

They listened to their coach when they disagreed

 

They kept coming

 

If you want results

 

You need to stick it out

 

You need to keep moving forward

 

Consistency will always be the hardest part

 

But consistency is where the magic happens

 

And where you turn into the “natural”
