A lot of the time when I come around to sharing pictures of my transformation or my ongoing journey, I am asked a very difficult question, ‘What motivates you?’.
The reason why I believe this is difficult to answer is very simple. I’m not always motivated. I have fluctuating weight, I skip training sessions and I occasionally struggle balancing all the various aspects of my life and ensuring I still squeeze in my daily workout. It’s hard to be strict, disciplined and consistent. It takes true dedication and focus and that’s something a lot of people have to learn and understand. Doing so takes time.
I answer the question as honestly as I can. I say “I am my biggest motivator and I am also the last person I should ever disappoint”. That statement sums me up very clearly and concisely. We should all hold ourselves accountable for our actions and the disappointment that may follow. Whenever we perform an action of any sort, we should always be aware of whether or not the action falls in line with our goals and the things we’ve set to accomplish within that given time. If not, then there is a need to recoup and re-evaluate the situation.
My motivation comes from the desire to be an all-round healthy person. Mentally, physically and emotionally. Exercise helps bring me closer to achieving that goal and that is precisely why I chose to become a person who promotes health and wellness.
I challenge you to sit down and think deeply about what motivates you. What are your goals and what ways do you thing you can change to help bring you closer to achieving those goals?
A lot of people do not take such practices seriously but I speak from experience when I say they have power. Give it a chance and be sure to come back and share your experience.
