December 21, 2019

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s fitness guru Emmet Rushe explains how you can achieve your goals this Lent. We have entered the season of Lent.Over the next 6 weeks’ millions of Christians will commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries a form of penance. Lent is traditionally described as fasting for 40 days in commemoration of the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the desert.This is something that most people who set out on can complete.Their faith is the driving force behind their goals and this faith is what keeps them on track when things get inevitably difficult during the 6 weeks of abstinence.In a normal situation, when someone sets out on a goal, quite often the goal is never reached. The difficulties that arise can be their downfall and lead them off course and eventually into giving up.Why is it then that when it comes to Lent, people seem to have more will power?It is because of their faith.With this, they have something that is greater than their wants and needs.When you abstain from something to achieve a goal, the goal must be greater than the pull of what you are abstaining from. If it isn’t, you will inevitably fail.During lent, the goal is to follow what Jesus did, and to abstain for the 6-week period.The thought of straying from this, the guilt of failing during this time and the sense of achievement that they have carried out something for their faith and for God is enough to keep most on track.This can be used to your advantage during this time. If you normally struggle with goals, Lent could be what helps you to succeed this time.You will have a reason greater than what you are abstaining fromYou will have likeminded people who are starting similar journeys. You have a reason that people WILL NOT question. Once you say why you are abstaining, there are no questions asked. All 3 of these combined, will increase your chances of success tenfold.So, get started, find support and use these next 6 weeks to break habits, achieve goals and finally find success.#leanin2019We are always welcoming new members into our Lean in 2019 program.Our course starts on April 1stIf you would like to pre-book your place you can contact me though the link below * Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: How Lent can help you achieve your goals? was last modified: March 2nd, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dd fitnessemmet rushelast_img
