People get frustrated because they just never seem to be able to get going. They get the "ready", and they get the "set". But they have no "go!". The go really is the most important part.
The problem is, they don't really have the "ready" down. What I mean is they aren't ready for change. They might think they're ready, but the reality is change is very difficult.
It's true, if you keep doing the same things expecting a different outcome, you are not getting it. And you're not ready. You might even have the set and the go. But if you don't have the "ready"...you're not going to get anywhere.
It's hard to describe but you know when you are ready to accept change. You know when you are willing to do things differently, to stop being defensive about your behaviors, to accept that what you've been doing might not be serving you well.
Those things take courage, humility and the ability to take direction. It's hard to come to the realization that you might not have been treating your body all that well. Seriously, no harm, no foul. You just make better decisions one by one. That's how you accept readiness.
If you've been wavering on readiness to change, think about making a small change today. Just a small one. You don't have to tell anyone about it, just do it for yourself. Small changes add up, leading to big changes. That's how you create "ready"!
