The intricacies of a well-thought-out program are only going to be as good as the execution of each part – that’s the plan and purpose. The plan you put in place to succeed in your goals all relies heavily upon your actions, your motivation and your desire to force change. Deciding upon which factors will elicit the greatest return on effort, must be at the forefront of your thinking. Being consistent in your approach with respect to your mindset, your intensity and your purpose must come next. When all considerations are established and you are ready to start, only then will you be able to see the path ahead.
Plan It Perfectly
You can plan and purpose everything perfectly right down to the minute of the exact day. While this may prove to be a prudent approach, it may cause significant stress when things just don’t go your way. As much as you would like to see the outcomes of each decision you make, each measure and every countermeasure you make provide the desired outcome, in bodybuilding, it doesn’t always work out that way. Planning each step you take will give you direction and structure within your program. Being able to shift and troubleshoot when the plan doesn’t go accordingly, is what will continue your results.
Ensure Productivity For Your Efforts
There has to be a plan and purpose behind everything you do in order to ensure productivity and the extension of your efforts. There’s a reason you’re in the gym each day you train; knowing that reason and being steadfast in your determination to win each day will be the fuel for the purpose behind everything you do. Your commitment to the game, the grind you put yourself through, the grit you showcase and all of the attributes you possess all culminate into that purposeful way you have about you. When you walk with purpose, people know you mean business and you’re in the business of being great.
Plan And Purpose Work Together
Can plan and purpose exist without the other? Of course, many will tell you they act first in most of their endeavors and leave it all up to chance. There are lots of people out there right now, training away as hard as possible, without any solid plans in mind whatsoever. Then there are those who over-plan and spend far too much time trying to be perfect with everything they choose to do and forget that the act itself of training is far more important than building everything precisely to their needs. When the plan works in synergy with your purpose, and each compliments the other, you will then begin to realize the power of it all.
The Final Thought
Some will tell you that it really doesn’t matter what you do in the gym but rather how you do it that matters most. While there is a lot of truth to that there is also a lot to be said about having direction and an outline to follow. The plan should always be considered your blueprint for success. Your plan and purpose is the level of work behind what needs to get done. Know what it is you want to accomplish and build, know how to go about doing so, find the right approach, establish clear and attainable goals and then act and execute accordingly with every move you make.
