People always ask me about lifestyle changes, knowing the big transformation I went through years ago.

And there’s a question that always pops up, one question that I really have a hard time answering concisely.

They ask, “how did YOU do it?”

I usually ramble, without getting to the point of my story. The people that ask that question are looking for a specific solution, the one miraculous thing that will set them right.

In reality, there’s so many layers to it, that is hard for me to convey in a straight answer.

Since I founded LUX, it has been my mission to find a good, concise, satisfactory answer to that question. It’s an ongoing, and constantly evolving journey that has created an amazing community of members and trainers that share my same passion for finding new ways of achieving healthy bodies.

So, guess what? I don’t have the ultimate key to success, but allow me to share some common themes I see in our success stories:

1. Small consistent steps are better than huge random sprints

This one is a tough one for me, being as impatient as I am. I have learned to slow down and accept that, to obtain a great long-term result, you have to start small and keep going. Don’t think you’ll get it done in 30 days. Expecting to reach the end goal in a short time will only bring you frustration. The problem is that we all want to see results immediately, and it takes some time until you see improvements. But if you have the courage to stick to it even if you don’t see the numbers moving, the payoff can be immense.

2. “Trying” something sets you up for failure

Do or do not, there is no try--right? For me, it depends. I’m not a proponent of punching through and muscling your way through everything. I agree that doing anything half-hearted will only bring you halfway of where you want to be. But if you don’t truly believe the path you’re taking is the right one, then pick a different one. Don’t just go through the motions expecting a miracle to happen. Choose a road that matches your view of life, one that sparks your passion. Take your time, be picky. But once you find that path, don’t “try it”. Follow through relentlessly until the end.

3. Learn from your failures

Failing sucks, I know. It is painful and probably embarrassing, but don’t let that stop you from fully committing to your path. Most likely, you will fail at any point in time. That’s life. Evaluate what went wrong, looking at the actions you undertook, rather than judging yourself as a person. For example, you didn’t lose the weight you wanted. It wasn’t because there’s something wrong with you or because you didn’t have the willpower. It was because the actions you chose to follow, or not to follow. The problem is in those activities, not within you. Make a list of those things you missed and start again!
