DD Fitness: What Conor McGregor can teach you about your goals

first_img“Doubt is only removed by action. If you’re not working then that’s where doubt comes in.” – Conor McGregorIn 2008, an 18-year-old Conor McGregor began his professional Mixed martial Arts career.After an 8-fight winning streak between 2011 and 2012 he was a 2-weight world champion in Cage warriors, the first European to do so. By February 2013 he was signed to the UFC and the McGregor era began.“There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that’s that. I am not talented, I am obsessed.” – Conor McGregorConor has had one goal from the start, to be the best.He wants to be remembered as one of the greatest of all time and he is on course to do just that.Love him or hate him, McGregor didn’t get here from just his ability to talk. He has natural ability, there is no doubting that, but he is also willing to put in the work. He studies his opponents. He trains to match their strengths and take advantage of their weaknesses. This doesn’t come from talking, this come from hard work.“My success isn’t a result of arrogance. It’s a result of belief.” – Conor McGregorWhat can this teach you about what you want to achieve?For most when they set a goal, no matter what it is, two things will happen.1. They will set the main goal and overlook the steps needed to get there.2. They will let doubt and the doubters steer them off course. When you set out a goal, you cannot just have an outcome.You must have behaviour goals and steps in place to help you to achieve your end goal.Outcome goal Win the UFC Lightweight World title and become the first 2 weight world Champion in the UFC.Behaviour goalsTrain, take on lower classed fighters, move up in the rankings, train, study your opponents, take on higher classed fighters, promote yourself, train, study the champion, win. These steps would not be taken lightly and there will inevitably be roadblocks.> An ACL injury got in the way.> The Featherweight champion pulling out of the 1 st title fight got in the way> Taking on an opponent from another weight class got in the way.So, the steps may have changed slightly along the way, but the Outcome goal never changed.When you set your goal, no matter what it is, expect difficulties along the way.These will happen, it is called life and it will inevitably change.If you only have an outcome and don’t have the appropriate steps in place to help you to reach your goal, what are you going to do when life gets in the way?You will fail, and probably have many times before.Does that mean you should give up?No, it means you need to re-set and set the appropriate step in place to help you to reach the end goal.“I am cocky in prediction. I am confident in preparation. But I am always humble in victory or defeat.” – Conor McGregorThen you have doubt.This is twofold, as you not only have self-doubt, but you also will have the doubter and the fear of failure and how they will react if you do can be paralysing for people.Self-doubt is a normal.This fear is what keep you from harm, it keeps you from pushing further into the discomfort that you will feel whenever you start to change yourself and your current situation.Just know that this discomfort is a natural feeling, do not shy away from it, you need to embrace it and use it as motivation to push you closer to your goal.“Nothing good ever comes from worrying or sitting there feeling sorry for yourself… keep positive and keep pushing on and things will turn good.” – Conor McGregorThen you have the doubters and naysayers.The fear of failure and how you will look to these doubters, can stop you in your tracks.THEY – DO – NOT – MATTER!“Doubt is only removed by action. If you’re not working then that’s where doubt comes in.” – Conor McGregorWhy are you worried about how you will look, to people who would get joy if you failed?This is madness.This should be your greatest motivation.Even if you do fail, learn from it. Find out why? What happened? What you can do better next time?Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE UP, ever.#TrainSmart“I never lose, either I win or I learn.” – Conor McGregorFor more information, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessDD Fitness: What Conor McGregor can teach you about your goals was last modified: July 16th, 2017 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:conor mc gregorfitnessGoalsrushe fitnessweight losslast_img
