The Freedom in 'Failure': How Habits Can Still Lead to Success

We want to share a liberating paradox about habits that has brought many of our Method3 Fitness clients immense freedom, and we believe it will do the same for you.


Here it is: Habits offer us freedom, even when we "fail" them.


Sometimes falling short of your exercise and eating goals isn't a failure at all. In fact, it's a natural part of the journey toward a healthier you.


Life throws curveballs, and we all stumble or face unexpected challenges. It's how we respond to these moments that truly matters. When life knocks you down or circumstances derail your plans, it's not a failure as long as you get back on track and resume your intended behaviors.


Habits breed success over time and after continuous effort. Within that definition is the freedom to “fail” sometimes. Your goal isn’t 100% perfect adherence – because no one can meet that standard! Your goal is to steadily do the right things, over and over.


It you suffer a slip, don’t beat yourself up. Learn from it if you can, and make a backup plan should the same circumstance come up again.


Or maybe you need to add a new habit to the mix. If so, connect it to a current habit, like brushing your teeth. Before long, it will seem just as natural.


Remember the 80/20 rule. If you're doing things right 80% of the time, that's a significant win. It applies to exercise, nutrition, and other habits too. 


Remember that you don’t have to go it alone. Check in with an accountability partner. Seek help if you need it.


Finally, keep the long-term vision in mind, NOT yesterday’s “mistake.” You’re running a marathon, not a sprint.


If you wanted instant success, we’d tell you it’s impossible.


Well, so is instant failure!


Hang in there and keep moving forward. You got this!
