Welcome to part 4 of this web course.

Say good bye to punishment, frustration, and feelings of being overwhelmed and say hello to your new life.
Are you ready to insulate yourself from mistakes and guarantee you achieve your fitness goal? We are talking about saying good bye forever to the wishing and praying method. This next part is by far the most important step which is practically always overlooked.
Have you completed part 1, 2, and 3 of this article series? If not, follow the link at the end of this article to pick them up. Missing them is like trying to build a house that only has a roof.
"Make sure you get your foundation and walls in first."
As you found out in article 1, not having a target is your sure fire, absolutely guaranteed direct path to failure. So, technically you could say that having a target is the most important step. However, most people have at least a vague idea of what they want. Generally, this is not enough to bring them success, but at least they are not dead in the water.
Have you ever made a mistake? How about feeling like you are wasting your time? Maybe you were stopped by indecision because you were not sure what to do? Not a fun place to be and it’s definitely eating away at you being consistent.
So how do you get your very own guided missile to success?
It is quite simple and it involves having a system of tracking and reviewing your results in place before you start your goal.
Most people judge their success only by whether they have hit their target. Simple enough and that is fine for very small goals, but what about larger goals? Do you want to spend years of your life with no clue about whether you are even getting closer to your goal? Years? Who wants to spend months or even weeks? Once again, that is not fun and is guaranteed to leave you with that sinking feeling that you are missing the boat.
We attacked half of this problem in the third article of this series where we developed your next step. Now we will address the 2nd half:
What if you choose the wrong next step?
This is where having a system in place that tracks your daily results is critical. Not only do you want to record the actions you’re taking daily, you also need to have a system that will prompt you to review what you are tracking.
If you are not interested in building a whole tracking system yourself and want it to be super easy, fun and automatic, check out Accountability Buddy via the link at the end of this article.
Some people actually get to the point where they are tracking the results they are getting, but then never take the time to review those results. They end up getting way off track, start to feel frustrated and end up quitting on their goal.
Sometimes it is even worse! By simply looking at their results, they would have realized they are almost there or just about to have a huge break through. But they give up when they are only steps away from the finish line. They didn’t realize the finish line was so close and they stop, only to end up starting at the beginning all over again later. Ouch!
By consistently tracking your progress and then reviewing what you are tracking, you quickly discover what is working and what is not working. You dump the bad and keep the good and move on. No more ringing your hands in frustration, not knowing what to do.
There are many "demons of the mind" that can stop you on the road to your success. Having a system of tracking and review in place before you start is awesome protection against those demons. Not to mention, it also ensures you get your goal!
You have made it again and are well on your way to becoming rock solid consistent with your fitness goals. Make sure you join us in part 5:
