Setbacks…Whether it’s sustaining an injury in the middle of a big race or coming down with a cold on the first morning of your vacation, we’ve all had them. And like anything else in life, things don’t always turn out according to plan. setbacksYou’ll go through highs and lows, successes and failures. Don’t fret. We come out of these experiences on the other side–better, stronger and more adaptable from the experience.

Living a balanced, healthy and ultimately successful lifestyle is a constant process of learning. Remember these simple keys the next time life throws a monkey wrench at you!

  • Stay determined. The most successful people don’t get that way because they fail less than others. They just accept that failure is part of the process, and they never stop trying to learn and grow.
  • Learn from your mistakes. Put on a few pounds on your last vacation? Next time, don’t let your hard work go to waste. Incorporate exercise into your next vacation.
  • dont give upRemain positive. Setbacks are temporary. Stay optimistic in your thinking, and it will be easier to find a solution that will get you back on track.
  • Have a plan. For instance, having an exercise plan that’s right for your body type and goals doesn’t just get you better results—sticking to the plan will actually help you avoid many of the setbacks and injuries that others suffer. Don’t just “wing it” or follow something you read in a fitness mag; do some research and consult a professional.
