How durable is your success?
Did you complete the 6-week ab program, but then stop exercising afterward?
Did you lose 10 lbs before vacation, then bounce back to your old eating habits when you got home?
We should stop thinking of success in terms of only short-term achievement, and instead, judge success by long-term sustainability and lasting effect on our lives.
We should then approach goals not just with the aim of a short-term, high-yield result, but also with a mindfulness for not burning ourselves out in the process. The process is lifelong.
