It's all about me

Look at yourself, not others. Do not waste time worrying about what other people are doing. everyone is working for different things, and whether someone can do more or less than what you are doing is not important. All that matters is that you become healthier and achieve your goals, not someone else's. Training with other people can be a great motivator, but it is important to stay focused on what you want to achieve.

Having someone else helping you along and pushing you to achieve what you want is a great tool for success for many people, and if you want to find someone to go through the changes with you, consider these points:

  • Choose someone who is equally motivated. If you start out with someone who is not really into what you are doing together, they will likely drop out and this may lead you to following them.
  • Choose someone suitable. It is usually best to choose someone in a similar situation to yourself, so that you can work at a similar pace and fit your timetables together.
  • Avoid the chatter boxes! Having a good friend to train with can be great, but if you spend all your time talking and not doing what is in your programme, you won't get very far. Find someone who is interested in what you are doing and motivated, but when it comes to doing your training, they get down to business.
