💪 8-Week Body Transformation Challenge! 🥗

Sleekgeek Belief System

What are some of the key beliefs that you need to have to build healthy habits and be a successful Sleekgeek?

After coaching hundreds of clients in the Sleekgeek Coaching Program, seeing thousands of transformations in the Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge, and learning first-hand from our own personal successes, we can’t help but notice a few common factors that stand out over and over again.

We sat down in Episode 02 and Episode 03 of the Sleekgeek Health Revolution Podcast to discuss them what they might be and came up with 25 Sleekgeek Beliefs:

1) Design your environment

Your environment sets you up for success or failure by default. If you keep lots of healthy food in your house, you’re more likely to eat lots of healthy food. If you keep lots of junk food in your house, you’re more likely to eat lots of junk food.

2) Life is better when you’re healthy

When you are healthy every aspect of your life improves.

3) Be your own hero

No one is coming to save you. It’s up to you to make it happen, no one will do it for you.

4) Let health be your anchor

When life gets tough and you want to quit, it’s even more important to double down and invest in your health.

5) Health is a habit

You are what you repeatedly do. Fit and healthy people don’t follow plans, they have habits that they repeat day in and day out.

6) Bounce back quickly

Everyone makes mistakes, but winners get back on track ASAP. They BOUNCE back, they don’t take their time sloooowly waddling back to where they were. You’re only one healthy meal away from getting back on track.

7) Your actions express your priorities

Words are cheap. It doesn’t matter what you say or believe are your priorities, your actions tell the truth.

8) You can’t pour from an empty cup

To give others your best, you need to take care of yourself first. It may seem selfish, but if you don’t look after yourself then you can’t be the best version of yourself that others need you to be.

9) Have a growth mindset

You have to believe that you CAN improve with practice and effort. You are not suck, you are not in a fixed place, you can grow and learn and improve.

10) Commitment beats motivation

Motivation is fleeting. It comes and goes over time. But commitment is reliable. Don’t only do what you need to do when you’re feeling motivated, stick to your commitments and get it done. The motivation will come back.

11) Motivation is optional

You don’t have to be motivated to do something. Very often simply getting started, even when you don’t feel like it, makes you feel more motivated.

12) Health opens new doors

Getting healthy leads to new opportunities and experiences. Lack of health closes a LOT of doors.

13) Focus on a bright future

Run towards the rewards rather than away from the fear.

14) You are who you have coffee with

The people who you surround yourself with shape your life. To be successful and build healthy habits, you need to spend more time around those who you want to be more like. Similarly, you need to spend less time around those who drag you down and make you worse.

15) Progress requires practice

If you want to get better, you need to practice over and over again. It’s usually hard in the beginning, but it gets easier with practice. If you’re struggling right now, then you just aren’t good enough YET – keep practicing!

16) You are who you think you are

The labels that we give ourselves and the identity that we wear have a huge influence on our confidence to do things. Decide the type of person you want to be and prove it to yourself with actions. Even if you aren’t that person yet, you can become 1% more that kind of person each day through taking consistent action.

17) The debate doesn’t matter

All that matters is the end result. Your excuses are valid, but so are the consequences. Don’t give in to your excuses, no matter how valid, because all you win is no results. Find a way to be stronger than your excuses and “win” the debate about why you can or can’t do something in your favour.

18) No failure, only lessons

Every setback is an opportunity to learn and get better. The only failure is if you never truly learn from your mistakes.

19) There’s always a solution

When you believe there is always a solution, you will make the effort to look for it. If you don’t believe it’s possible, you won’t try hard enough.

20) Quitting is not an option

When you quit on your health, you quit on yourself. Giving up and quitting is just not an option, so keep on fighting.

21) Getting started is the most important part

You can learn and plan and wait for the right time, but if you don’t actually start then it’s all a waste. Get started sooner rather than later and figure it out as you go. Start small and scale up from there.

22) Be less “all-or-nothing”

Trying to be perfect is the enemy of progress because nobody is perfect and it often results in failure. Consistency beats perfection, so try to be less “all-or-nothing” and more “always something”.

23) Focus on BIG wins

Spend more time focusing on the 20% of actions that will get you 80% of the results. Don’t major in the minor.

24) Your schedule doesn’t lie

The things you schedule are your priorities. If it’s truly important, find a way to make sure that it happens. If you “forget” or “don’t have time” then it’s simply not a priority.

25) Health is the real wealth

Without your health, you have nothing. It’s good to chase different goals throughout life, but don’t sacrifice your health to achieve them.
