"There’s a Difference between Knowing the Path and Walking It" – Morpheus (The Matrix)
The fact that this quote comes from a fictional character doesn’t make it any less profound. In fact, it directly applies to why many people struggle in achieving their health and fitness goals.
For example, if I asked you, “What do you need to do to get into great shape?” You would probably list some common advice, such as: exercise 3-4 times a week, eat 3-4 well-balanced meals per day, get ample sleep and stay hydrated. These are all correct answers and great ways to maintain your health. In fact, you could probably even lay out a solid plan for how to do these things, which brings us to the big question: if we are armed with the right information, why aren’t we all in peak health? For most of us, we know the path, but walking it is another story altogether. Fortunately, this is where coaching comes into play.
Coaching isn’t just about introducing new exercises or pushing you outside your comfort zone. Working with the right coach creates a culture of accountability, which is crucial to achieving success. Without accountability, the path to our goals can become lost in life’s day-to-day challenges and before we know it, our health has been pushed to the bottom of our list of priorities. Accountability can mean the difference between just knowing the path and walking it so that you are always taking steps towards reaching your goals.
Show me someone who is thriving in any area of life and 99% of the time, you will find a mentor, coach, family member, or friend who has helped that person stay the course on their road to success. Instead of trying to go it alone, why not enlist the right help and create a support system? Sometimes stepping back and saying “I could use some help” is all it takes to get on the right path and stay on it for good.
