I think it’s safe to say, that we have all experienced failure, one way or another and sometimes it has gotten to us more than we intended. It can be too easy to give up when we fail our first fitness goal, or even our second, or third. But what if we told you that failure is a vital part of succeeding your goals? Failure can be viewed in many ways, such as not reaching your run time or distance when you wanted to, or even not hitting your weight target. It is important that whilst failure can be disheartening, you do not give in - for failure helps us to recognise where we went wrong, and how we can improve it for next time.

When failure has reached us, we’ve used it as a chance to better our exercise routine to help us get closer to achieving our fitness goals. The challenge is to not let it beat you. Whilst self-pity may be at the forefront of your mind, it is important to realise that you need to move on, even if that means hitting another failure straight afterwards and facing that enemy time and time again to reach your fitness goals.
Focusing on your strengths won’t make you develop physically and mentally. Whilst it can feel great to be good at something, it is our weaknesses that need that need to be at the focus. It is when these areas are exposed, that you can strengthen your ability and mentality, but also bring you one step closer to your fitness goals.
Our biggest competition will always be ourselves, so work hard, fail, get back up and succeed.
