You’re probably thinking the only thing the Superbowl can teach you is what NOT to eat.
And that’s sort of true.
If you watched the Superbowl closely last night there was more going on than just bad food, a brownout and expensive commercials.
I like to watch sports to see how top performers handle themselves in tough situations.
It’s interesting and instructive to see how top performers handle themselves when under a ton of pressure.
You’ll see similiar winning behaviors amongst nearly all professional athletes that leaves clues to how you should handle the inevitable dark days, bad meals, and missed workouts.
Joe flacco the MVP and winning quarterback in the Superbowl knows a lot about winning and losing.
He’d lost the last 4 out of 5 games coming into the Superbowl.
And it’s how he handles the set backs and defeats that’s informative and instructive.
As he said post game “There were a lot of things I had no control over, butI kept pushing and adapted and overcame”
Lesson 1. Expect there to be adversity and adapt and overcome it.
When you see a receiver race down field and miss a catch, or even be involved in an interception. He’ll quickly recover a get himself mentally set up for the next play…
There’s not a lot of dwelling on what just went wrong, there’s an almost automatic recovery a resilience against set backs.
Champions are always looking at the big goals and never loose sight of keeping their eye on the big win.
Lesson 2. Recover quickly from setbacks and develope a resiliency and speed to quick recovery.
Look at how the 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick kept pushing to win, coming back from a deficit, after the lights in the stadium came back on.
He did not look up at the scoreboard and walk off the field.
He kept pushing.
A never give up attitude will overcome a lot of temporary set backs.
Lesson 3. Never ever Give Up.
Use these same winning techniques with your fat loss and fitness program.
1) Expect there to be adversity and setbacks. Adapt and overcome.
2) Build up a habit of recovering quickly from a set back, and getting back on track quickly.
3) Never Give Up!
Make the best plan to have your food prepared before the week begins
But when you find yourself stuck in a drive
thru later in the week. You don’t give
up the whole plan!
You make the best choices you can make, and get back on your diet as fast as possible.
Quick recovery leads to moving toward your goals faster and more consistently.
Stuck at work and miss a workout?
Your program hasn’t come to an abrupt end, you simply get up the next day and make it a priority to get to the gym.
Fast automatic recovery can only help you stay on track.
While a never give up attitude insures your success.
It CAN be done and YOU can do it!
