Changing for Results, vs Being Changed

Many times we implement changes when we are motivated to see a
given result from them.

But this is about more than just
getting results. This is about being
changed.

The whole process that you are
going through, is not something
that you execute just to see a result on the scale or in your body
composition.
At least I hope you see there is
more to it than that. 

This process can be life changing if you allow it to be. But it only can
change you to the extent that you
persevere through the obstacles,
challenges, and times of no
perceived progress. 

We talked about that element of
faith, and that this all starts with
faith. Think about this, what has
been your biggest stumbling block mentally? 

Were there times when you
consistently executed, but didn’t
see the changes you may have
expected?

Did you have doubts?

Did you wonder if there was even a point to continue?

Did you wonder if what you started
this for was even possible? 

Not everyone has the same
experience as they go through the
process.

There are some people who
execute and see immediate results, on a daily basis. And there are some who don’t see them as rapidly. 

When you see yourself progressing physically directly related to your
execution, having faith in the bigger picture is easy. Because you see
how making changes directly
creates change. 

But that doesn’t happen for
everyone, and everyone will have
seasons where that does not
happen.

Everyone will have seasons were
they don’t see the immediate
returns. And that is the time your
faith is truly tested.

When you feel like you’re doing
everything “right” but nothing is
going the way you would like. This is my reminder to you, that faith is
what takes people to the next level.

Because because if you continue
pressing forward despite the lack of perceived progress, you will have
your breakthroughs. 

And it is this process of continually executing when you haven’t seen
immediate changes, that remolds
us. Changes us. Because this is not
just about getting results. It’s about breaking the old so we can become new.
