19 Jan “How do I get, and stay, motivated to eat well and work out?”
Motivation is needed, right? If you want to get fit or transform your body, you need the proper motivation to get your butt in the gym and making good choices in the kitchen. Let’s bring this to life with a visual for how most people view motivation.
What most people think happens:
motivation → action (i.e., motivation comes first, and that leads to action)
What, oftentimes, really happens:
action → results → motivation → more action …
Oftentimes action heads motivation. Prosperous people know this, and it’s why they act, especially when they’re void of motivation. “Results” don’t have to be crazy, like losing 10kgs. With working out, for example, it could be learning a new exercise, doing a little better than the previous workout, moving and feeling better, etc.
Steady action produces results. That is what leads to motivation, which generates more action, which leads to greater motivation. It’s a powerful force once set into motion!
Irrespective of what you want to achieve – be it fat loss, gaining muscle, or something completely unrelated to health and fitness, the solution is obvious: ACT NOW! Do something that will lead you to your goal; do it today, especially if you don’t feel like it. The results you achieve from taking action will likely evoke the motivation you crave.
I hope this helps you!
