I thought I would share this with readers because I really resonate with what is written here. Goals are great if you actually have a plan to obtain them. You can still have great discipline to be in the gym when you need to be or be there consistently but if you have no plan for how to get there your efforts will not be as effective as they could be. You need a PLAN for how to get there. And, it needs to be reasonable. For example, if you are student athlete and you are working 40hrs per week during the summer you better figure out when and how the workouts will be scheduled and exactly what you will be doing related to your goals.
Hard work is great but without having laser like focus with a plan you might find yourself disappointed when it comes to reaching your goals.
Goals are an End, Not the Journey
