After six years of weekly videos, we decided to try something new this week!

As 2022 kicks off, we find ourselves having numerous conversations with students and clients about RESULTS.

While we love how quickly Z-Health tools can create life-altering changes, most long-term results will come from two things:

CONSISTENCY and PATIENCE.

The basic truth is that the best rehabilitation, training, nutrition, and education programs in the world will fail if they are not applied consistently. For this reason, a crucial part of creating the right program for a client is setting realistic expectations for how much work will need to be done to reach their goals and helping them build the skills needed to perform it with regularity. Inevitably, though, clients will come to a point where they struggle to stick to dietary changes or exercise frequently enough, and when they do, many immediately fall back into their standard mental program of blaming themselves for a lack of willpower.

In our experience, MOST people can be consistent for a period. The trouble happens when they run out of PATIENCE before they start to see the true fruits of their labor.

If you want to change how you feel, perform, or look in the mirror, it is vital to give yourself time. In most cases, three months of consistent work should be a minimum baseline to start seeing noticeable differences, and thinking in years, instead of months, is an even better mindset.

As you jump into 2022, here are a few of our favorite thoughts on consistency and patience:

“When building habits, choose consistency over content. The best book is the one you can’t put down. The best exercise is the one you enjoy doing every day. The best health food is the one you find tasty. The best work is the work you’d do for free.”
-Naval Ravikant

“Successful people have a bias towards action. This is because action provides feedback—it gives you more information so that your next decision is an even better one. But at the same time, successful people are also absurdly patient. They wait for years—decades even—to watch their planted seeds grow into trees. They always find a way to stay in the game and out-wait almost everyone until they win. They’re patient, but they move quickly.”
-Thomas Waschenfelder

Most people need consistency more than they need intensity.

Intensity:
– Running a marathon
– Writing a book in 30 days
– Going on a silent meditation retreat

Consistency:
– Not missing a workout for 2 years
– Writing every week
– Engaging in a practice of daily silence

“Intensity makes a good story. Consistency makes progress.”
-James Clear

Have a great week!
