How to Motivate Yourself to Work Out

Here is what can be an all-too-common pattern:

You get all fired up, and set some goals.

You’re going to work out every morning! Or cut out the after-dinner snacking! Or drop the two beers every night! Or whatever else …

… and you do great, for a little while! … but then one, two, three weeks in, you fall into your old habits … and you feel like you’re right back where you started.

Clearly, there are a LOT of factors at play here.

So I’m just going to tell you what works for ME.

See, six or seven years ago, I was super super focused on work.

I was driving like a maniac, and that’s pretty much what I thought about all day, every day.

How can I get better, how can I succeed, how can I grow my business.

At that time – my workouts and nutrition were all about optimizing my performance so that I could get a little more productivity and that extra “edge”.

So if this is your current season of life – maybe that’s YOUR reason why!

OR – maybe you’re in a similar phase that I am currently.

I do think about work and improving the business and growing, don’t get me wrong … but my priorities are also now on my family.

So now it’s about balancing out providing for them, while also being able to spend time.

Balancing out work with health, because I want to be around for them, for a long time to come.

This is a HUGE motivation, when maybe I don’t feel like working out, or cutting back on the beers, or getting to bed early, or whatever else.

And if you are in a similar time of life – maybe this is your “reason why” too!

There are SO many other reasons why. Maybe it’s a health scare. Maybe it’s to be able to play with your grandkids. Maybe it’s to have the energy and zeal to travel. Maybe it’s just to feel great and improve your confidence and change your outlook on life.

And no reasons are right or wrong.

They are right for YOU – and that’s all the matters.

Bottom line – I hope today’s message gets you thinking, and possibly spurs you to action.

Let’s make this a great week, and get it done!!!
