Challenger’s Journey – Day 2


Vault menu: Home | Instructions | Nutrition | Exercise | Challenger’s Journey | Prizes | Resources | Support


👋 Welcome to Day 2 of the Challenger’s Journey!

Each day for 8 weeks we’re going to help you think, eat, move, or sleep better.

  • 💡 Each week we will be focusing on 1 of the 4 pillars at a time.
  • 💡 Each day we will challenge you to take action with a daily mission that you need to complete.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what Week 1 looks like:


Today’s 🎯 Mission:

This is what you need to do in order to successfully complete today’s challenge mission.

  • Ask yourself “WHY?” you want to change. Then keep asking yourself “WHY?” until you’ve done it five times in order to get a better understanding of what’s really at stake if you quit on your goals.
  • Write down your 5th Why (and anything else that stands out for you) in your Mindset Journal
    • If you are just here for the Challenger’s Games team challenge and not doing the full Challenger’s Journey, you won’t have a “Mindset Journal” from yesterday’s task. Instead, you can just write it down on any piece of paper for your own reference.
  • Write underneath that “If I quit when it gets tough then I’ll be quitting on…” and then complete the sentence with your 5th Why again.
  • 🤩 [OPTIONAL] Share with us what your 5th Why is in the Sleekgeek Facebook Group (feel free to share all of your Whys if you want).
  • 📋 Complete the form at the bottom of the page when done.

More 🔔 Info:

Perhaps one of the most important things that you can do on this journey is to figure out exactly WHY you are wanting to change.

Success is not a straight line. It’s actually a really messy process that involves a lot of ups and downs.

We all go through tough times where we are low on motivation, time, energy, or willpower. It happens to all of us. It WILL happen to you too.

The problem is that most people tend to give up way too easily when the going gets tough.

Most people think that when they quit on their health and fitness goals, they are quitting on things like their goal of:

  • Losing 10kgs.
  • Running 5km without being out of breath.
  • Wanting to look good on the beach.
  • Wanting to fit into smaller size clothes.

But it’s so much more than that!

What will losing 10kgs mean for your future? What will being able to run 5km let you be able to do? How will looking good on the beach make you feel? What will fitting into small size clothes represent?

Look, these are all great ways to get started…

Imaging yourself thinner, fitter, better looking, and more comfortable in your clothes can easily give you a big boost in motivation!

In the short term…

But what about when life gets “messy”?

You know, when work is stressing you out, you’re sleep deprived, finances are tight, emotions are all over the place, and willpower is at an all-time low?

It’s times like that where “wanting it” is just not enough. So let’s dig a bit deeper.

FINDING WHAT’S REALLY AT STAKE:

I’d like to take you through the EXACT exercise that we do with our Sleekgeek Coaching Program clients to help them figure out what is really at stake.

It’s called the “5 Whys?” and is a system originally pioneered by the Toyota Motor Corporation.

If you’re getting flashbacks of your 3-year-old son or niece asking you “Why?” all the time, don’t worry, this is not like that.

OK, actually it kind of IS like that… But turns out it’s a really really good way to learn more about stuff (especially yourself).

It’s very simple and really cuts to the core of why we want or do something.

When you want to accomplish a goal, you ask yourself “Why?”.

Then, with whatever answer you come up with, you ask yourself “Why?” to that answer. So on until you’ve asked yourself “Why?” 5 times.

I think you’ll be surprised with what you find…

The “5 Whys?” Exercise:

Here’s an example of the “5 Whys?” exercise in action from a coaching client.

She said that she wanted to lose weight, so we asked her “Why?” 5 times:

WHY #1) Why do you want to lose weight?

  • “Because I want to fit into a smaller size of pants.”

WHY #2) Why is that important to you?

  • “Because when I’m wearing smaller pants, I think I’ll look better.”

WHY #3) And why is that important?

  • “Because when I look good, I feel good about myself.”

WHY #4) And why will that make a difference?

  • “Because when I feel good about myself, I’m more assertive and confident.”

WHY #5) And why will that matter?

  • “Because when I’m more assertive and confident, I’m in control and better able to get what I want out of life.”

WOW! As you can see, that’s a LOT of insight for a few little questions.

For this client, wanting a smaller size of pants really meant being in charge of her life and living it to the fullest.


That’s how you stay motivated!

For that client above, if she quits on her goals, she doesn’t just lose out on the smaller pants size…

She loses out on being more confident, more assertive, more in control, and better able to get what she wants out of life!

When you have a much deeper and more significant reason behind why you are doing something, it’s so much easier to push through when times get tough.

If you can find a way to remind yourself of your 5th “Why?” every single day, then it will help you stay motivated on the bad days and get even better results on the good days.

Set a reminder on your phone, stick a post-it note on your mirror, put a picture that signifies your end-goal on your fridge. Do whatever you have to do to keep this top-of-mind.

So…

I wonder what YOU have really been quitting on every time you have given up in the past?

All those people wanting to be thinner, fitter, better looking, and more comfortable in their clothes ACTUALLY wanted to:

  • Be thinner, so that they could feel more respect and loved.
  • Be fitter, so that they could live long enough and be well enough to play with their grandchildren.
  • Be better looking so that they could have a better relationship with their husband.
  • Be more comfortable in their clothes so that they could have a successful and fulfilling career.

Now it’s your turn:

  • 1) Ask yourself “WHY do you want to achieve your health and fitness goals?”
  • 2) Then ask yourself “And WHY is that goal important to you?”
  • 3) Then ask yourself “And WHY is that important?”
  • 4) Then ask yourself “And WHY will that make a difference?”
  • 5) Finally, ask yourself And WHY will that previous thing matter?”

Today’s 🎯 Mission:

This is what you need to do in order to successfully complete today’s challenge mission.

  • Ask yourself “WHY?” you want to change. Then keep asking yourself “WHY?” until you’ve done it five times in order to get a better understanding of what’s really at stake if you quit on your goals.
  • Write down your 5th Why (and anything else that stands out for you) in your Mindset Journal
  • Write underneath that “If I quit when it gets tough then I’ll be quitting on…” and then complete the sentence with your 5th Why again.
  • 🤩 [OPTIONAL] Share with us what your 5th Why is in the Sleekgeek Facebook Group (feel free to share all of your Whys if you want).
