Do You Struggle With Motivation? Focus On This Instead
We all wish we had more of it, don’t we?
Motivation tends to be the one thing that we try to rely on to get results. Many of us wait to feel that burst of inspiration before we can get the momentum necessary to achieve the goals that we set.
What if I told you that you were focusing on the wrong thing???
It turns out that commitment (you can also think about it as having discipline) is more important than motivation.
Motivation comes and goes, but if you make a commitment for the right reasons, it can last a lifetime.One of the biggest lesson’s I’ve learned is that consistency is the most important factor when it comes to getting results.
No one wakes up 7 days a week with an equal amount of motivation, so to get results with anything, especially fitness, you have to make it a priority, make time for it, and make it into a habit.
Another important point is to be honest with yourself. Lying to yourself is especially bad because it prevents you from making the changes necessary to take you to the next step of your fitness journey.
If we’re really being honest, “I don’t have time for the gym” really means “The gym isn’t a priority for me.”
Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day, it’s just a matter of what you do with your free time.
The takeaway: Making the commitment in the beginning is the key step. After that, you can put your habits into place. It will then be much easier to persevere through the inevitable challenges that life will throw your way.
That’s the only way you’ll succeed.
I’ll be talking more about habits in a future post. Stay tuned!
