Please stop waiting for motivation to change your body, it’ll be a long wait!
Motivation comes from results, but most people waste time thinking the opposite.
When you build beneficial habits…
Not temporary changes
Not fashions or fads
Not quick fixes
but proper HABITS, then they are what will start you on your path to results.
That’s where motivation suddenly appears, because you enjoy the first sign of results and you want more.
Let’s use a business example.
You don’t get results from motivation; you get it from consistent positive habits.
- Turning up early
- Hitting deadlines
- Working hard
- Offering insights
- Managing your schedule
- Assisting colleagues/employees
You don’t wait for motivation to carry out these tasks. You carry out these tasks as a matter of good habit, and then comes the motivation by itself
You are rewarded for those good habits through recognition, promotion, revenue generation, etc. And this motivates you to continue.
The same happens with your body and physical mindset, and these are habit upgrades I push to all of my clients
- Being active
- Eating nutritious food
- Drinking water
- Getting plenty of sleep
- Managing your stressors
- Protecting your energy
- Upgrading your peer group
Carry out those few simple tasks and watch the results start racking up. Then, as if by magic, you’ll be MOTIVATED to keep doing them.
