Why Small Gains = Success

When it comes to making changes with our physique and gaining muscleour mind immediately goes to the end result. What we want to look like, how we want to feel etc. This is good because we need those goals cemented in our minds in order to make forward progress and remember where we want to be.

But just the same, it can get frustrating when we aren’t seeing the results we want to see. I’ve worked with different people who all have different goals and I can tell you the ones that have reached their goals or are close to reaching them are the ones that kept going despite not seeing progress some weeks or months.

You don’t always see the progress. Darren Hardy wrote an amazing book called the compound effect that talks about how small changes done every day add up to huge changes a year or more down the road.

When you start working out and eating healthy you won’t see immediate change, this is NORMAL. Keep making the hard and small every day decisions, to eat that healthy meal, to make it to the gym, and change will come.
