About This Show
Do you feel like a failure when it comes to your wellness and fitness journey? You've tried the diets, the countless fitness programs, and all the superfoods, but nothing seems to stick. Hi, I'm Ali Reti, former national fitness trainer turned wellness and fitness activist, and I'm here to tell you a secret: You're not a failure—the industry is failing you. After working in the fitness industry for over a decade, I realized people weren't in pursuit of losing those last 10 pounds, but rather they craved something deeper. To achieve self-acceptance and freedom from the tightly wound restrictions they'd placed on themselves. The Progress Over Perfection podcast will help you release the societal shame of looking perfect and being perfect, so you can live a life free from diets, restriction and shame. Are you ready to let go of the false hope that's being sold and the empty promise that a perfect body will somehow heal you? Then join me each week as I address taboo topics with thought leaders in the industry who are paving the way to a new standard. Say goodbye to the "rules" once and for all, so you too can choose progress over perfection.

Ep 047: The journey to your DREAMS

Episode 47: What if I told you that tomorrow I was going to gift you the VERY thing you've been dreaming of day after day? Would you be ready? The truth is, this topic comes up so often with my clients who want to lose weight, be more fit, stop thinking about food and finally develop an effortless routine. I want you to think about that dream I'm about to hand you, do you believe with all your heart that you'd be ready for it? Could you handle it? Knowing that you hadn't taken all the daily steps you knew you needed to take. Knowing that you were unsure of how to maintain it. Think about people who win the lottery. Typically, many of these people wind up spending all their money within a year of winning it. I think about this ALL the time as an entrepreneur, would I be ready if tomorrow Oprah showed up on my doorstep to collaborate? Maybe. The whole point of achieving your dreams is that the JOURNEY is what allows you to carry out the result you are dying for. But Ali, the process is hard. It feels like a roller coaster, it feels like I'm never going to get there. I GET YOU. I've been there, I'm still there in certain areas of my life. But you know what? I know that if I stay the course, if i can find a way to become wildly obsessed with the process, that is what will get me there. I've never known anyone who became so excited and enjoyed a process to not reach their goal. You know why? They commit, every single day to doing one thing that will move them forward. They know that imperfect action trumps staying where they are. They know that by putting in the tiny efforts each and being consistent, that is what ultimately leads them to their dream. So I'll as you again, if you've been feeling impatient and wanting your dream to happen TOMORROW, would you be ready? Or do you have some work to do? Are you taking action? Are you putting one foot in front of the other? Are you throwing in the towel when things get hard or are you asking yourself more productive questions so that you can discover a different answer? Are you wildly obsessed with ENJOYING the process? If you'd like to watch this Facebook Live video for more juiciness, you can find it here!
