This is probably why you aren't seeing results in the gym, in your happiness, in your business, etc.
You started off creating new habits or just doing MORE of the things that you used to do and the results were great.
You were getting more views on your website, getting in way better shape at the gym, starting to feel better after changing your diet, feeling happier, etc.
But then after a while you realize the results just aren't the same or you can't get any better results even though you are doing the same work as you were before.
Because your mind has gotten comfortable with these new habits and it is just another part of your day, you really aren't pushing yourself or trying to do more.
Our minds gravitate towards what is easy and comfortable and that is why a lot of results plateau.
People think they can just be doing the same amount of work and be "patient" and the results will come, that is just not the case when you aren't pushing yourself anymore.
This is how to get out of that mindset trap.
If you are new to the blog, thanks for stopping by! With MMNTM (mo-men-tum) my goal is to help you level up your mind and mindset with effective "workouts." Much like you would train your body, this is the gym for your mindset, everything from your happiness and mental clarity to mental discipline and productivity. These are the things that have helped me the most and I love sharing them with you daily on yourmmntm.com/blog so be sure to stop out daily!
Now let's get back to what you started reading for.
A Quick Glimpse At What to Expect
Why You Are Reading This Post
Are the results not coming like they used to be?
Well, obviously there is a reason many of you stumbled on this post.
Whether you were trying to figure out why you just aren't getting any results or aren't getting the results you were previously in any area of your life.
This can be applied to every area whether it be your fitness, your health, your relationship with your partner, in business or even in your happiness and mindset.
We get to a point where we can't be doing the same actions and getting better results.
It happens to all of us, without doubt, in some area of life and we just have to recognize it and change.
It's almost impossible to be constantly trying new things and pushing the boundaries in all areas of your life at once and that is why we all see results plateau at some point, so don't worry.
Whatever the next area you want to focus on is, this post is going to help you do so.
Showing Up Might Not Be Enough Anymore
It worked at first, that time has come and gone.
When you first started this new habit of yours, incorporated something new into your life, or simply just started doing more work to see better results in whatever area of your life it may be, you essentially had to just show up.
Because you went from doing nothing in that area to doing something and that is sure to bring about results.
The beautiful thing here is that this is always the starting point, so don't worry when you really weren't doing anything too complex and seeing results, sometimes the simplest things in life get the best results (actually this is most of the time).
But that time has come and passed and showing up isn't doing shit for us anymore...
I'm not saying that you have to go and create some elaborate plan new that the simple things aren't working, maybe you just need to start doing different things and breaking some patterns that you have created for yourself.
Why We Just Keep Showing Up
Our mind gravitates to what is easy and comfortable.
A lot of people end up just constantly showing up for their whole lives and wondering why they aren't seeing results anymore.
The thing is if we do this for long enough we train our minds to think that this is what it takes and we just have to be patient and let the results come.
While being patient is true, you have to be aggressive in changing patterns short term that aren't working.
Because our minds gravitate towards what is easy and comfortable and once you start showing up for long enough, that is what becomes easy and comfortable.
No longer is this a new and challenging action, no matter how hard it is, it eventually becomes more and more comfortable.
And that its when we need to start to change.
How Our Mindset Plays A Role in All of This
As in all the blog posts, mindset is at the foundation of everything.
If you are new to the blog, I'll let you in on a little something I always like to reiterate because it is so important and essentially the foundation of what MMNTM stands for.
And if you read daily, you are actually the best and I'll let you hear this again:
Your mindset is the foundation to every area of your life. If your mind isn't right, you are going to struggle to see results. So, start changing your thinking and start changing your life.
No matter how much action you are trying to take, your mindset determines the results you can be getting, whether you are consciously aware of it or not.
Just think about it, if you are working super hard to build a happy mindset yet you have nothing but negative thoughts and aren't subconsciously aware of the negative light you see the world in, then you are never going to really change.
Your mindset is like a current, if you are trying to swim against the current, you aren't going to go very far, even if you are swimming very hard. Switch directions and go with the current, you are going to go forever.
You can't see the current usually, but it is always there and same thing with your mindset.
How Our Mindset Needs to Change
Time to make the change if you want real results.
Instead of just doing the action one time and then repeatedly doing the same action over and over again for years, how about we teach our minds to continually test and test.
What exactly is this going to do for us?
It is going to keep our minds from getting too comfortable in one habit, to constantly be pushing the boundaries and that is where we get results.
Instead of just doing the same things day in and day out, train your mind to figure out how to achieve that year goal in a couple of months because I'm sure there is a way to get close at least.
This is the way we have to start to think, to constantly test and push ourselves, rather than just feel good after changing a few things in our lives and coast for the next couple of months.
This just leads to mediocre results.
Why would you want mediocre results in anything? Average happiness doesn't sound fun to me, I don't know about you guys...
