Ever heard the story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree?
Don't worry, not everyone has, but you know i'm going to tell you it anyway.
Are you sitting comfortable?
Then i'll begin.... :)
You see this remarkable tree is different to most trees.
You see it doesn't grow in the usual way.
Most trees will steadily grow over a period of time.
But not this special little tree.
You can provide it with the most perfect of tree growing conditions - plenty of sunlight, plenty of rain, perfect soil
you will see nothing pop out of the ground for the first 4 years of its existence!!!
Can you believe that?
4 whole years - 48 months!!!
But then in year 5 something special happens.
.....in fact almost magical.
This tree pops it's head out of the ground and starts to grow at an astonishing rate.
In fact, over a period of just 5 weeks it can grow up to 90 feet!!!
Why do I share this?
Because this is what life can be like at times.
It can be what goals are like at times.
Sometimes we feel like we're putting so much effort in to the achievement of our goals yet not always seeing fair results to justify
We give up.
When it comes to health and fitness, this is usually around mid Feb.
Don't give up on your goal.
If one method isn't working then try something else.
For me, I had been searching for 27 years to find a means of earning a decent living doing something that I absolutely love.
So that it actually doesn't feel like work.
I've tried so many different jobs.
I've been close to bankruptcy on this journey.
I've had to move back to my parents, to get my life back in order.
I've lost thousands of pounds trying to figure this out.
- even when I started in the fitness industry, I was making no money for the first 2-3 years.
Buying budget / value food.
Working 16 hour days.
...and now I'm finally doing what I love and enjoy.
I run the Perth Fitness Camp and KEBOfit an online coaching business.
Since 2009 the Perth Fitness Camp has been Perth's number one outdoor fitness programme and KEBOfit is my online body transformation programme. I now work in an industry that first of all saved me from myself when I was an overweight & out of shape guy and it's an area i'm seriously passionate about and I love every second of it.
Even if you've been trying different things on and off for the last few years, keep trying.
Just like that bamboo tree.
Be consistent and be persistent.
Then all of a sudden something will click.
And you will also see something quite magical.
If you found this little article helpful, spread the word and share it with friends, family, work colleagues, whoever!!
Obviously if you think its a load of old shite don't do anything.
