This The Power of Knowing Your ‘Why’
If you want to get fit or stay fit, then you need a good motivator — a primary reason why you want to exercise, eat right, and live a healthy lifestyle.
We talk to people about this all the time.
We all have powerful, compelling reasons why we lift weights, run, swim, take yoga, ride bikes, and more. Here are just a few of the most universal:
Maintaining a healthy weight
Enjoying sports, hobbies and playing with kids
Maintaining physical and mental health
Treatment of chronic pain or conditions
Better quality of life
Do any of those strike a chord with you? They sure as hell do with me……all of them apart from playing with kids as now I get to train in the gym with my son
Any reason is a good reason.
Heck, you don’t even have to have one. But many people like to remind themselves of their primary driver. It can give you a boost when you’re not feeling motivated. And it can guide your choices about how to spend your time and energy.
The next time you say to yourself, “Why do I even bother doing this…” remember the power of your very own WHY. It can save you from eating foods that aren’t in alignment with your goals, skipping workouts, & even quitting altogether.
Remember, those who achieve GREAT things aren’t motivated all the time…or even most of the time. But their WHY is more important than their comfort.
You can create that for yourself too, my friend.
