Don't focus on the short-term results

  • The goal is not to lose 40 pounds in the next 12 weeks, but to regain your health for the rest of your life.
  • The goal is not to bench press 300 pounds, but to be the guy who never misses a workout.
  • The goal is not to sacrifice everything to get your fastest time in next month's race, but to be faster next year than you are today.

Workouts should be easy in the beginning
