At this time of year, a lot of people suffer from the blues and feel unmotivated.
I mean think about it …
It’s dark, wet and cold outside.
You’ve possibly over indulged at Christmas and feel sluggish.
Maybe you’re behind on sleep and out of routine so you’re all over the place.
You probably look at those fit, lean people and think, ‘I wish I was that motivated’ and then this wears you down even more.
Whatever the cause(s) we all know that being in this unmotivated space sucks.
Overcoming inertia and actually getting going is definitely, by far, the hardest part of any transformation journey.
For example …
Starting a training programme when you’ve gotten out of routine, getting going with a healthy eating plan when you’ve got into the habit of riding on sugar waves, doing your food prep when it’s just so easy to grab something at the garage.
It’s not easy.
And the trouble is what most people do is they wait until they’ve got the motivation to do something. Which means often, they never get going because …
It gets harder, and harder, and harder, the longer you leave it right?!!!
Can you relate? I sure can.
Here’s a great quote by Leonard Cohen, and also it’s my ‘go to’ strategy for getting myself moving when I’ve zero motivation.
“ACT the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you act”
Breathe that wisdom in.
It applies to everything in life.
It’s pretty scary for some people because it actually means that you can be whatever you want IF you’re prepared to ACT. There’s no room for excuses.
If you want to be fit, lean, and healthy then START ACTING LIKE A FIT, LEAN, HEALTHY PERSON.
Do the things they do.
Take the actions they take.
Make the decisions they make.
Success leaves clues so mirror yourself on them.
For example …
Get a PERSONAL TRAINER to keep you accountable like myself.
Get a proven training and nutrition plan like my 21 DAY WEIGHT LOSS PLAN.
Get up early and go to the gym.
Get organised and prep your food.
Basically, take the actions like you ARE one of those fit, lean, healthy people who other people look at and think ‘I wish I was that motivated.’
Motivation COMES from getting going and getting results.
Don’t wait for it.
Go get it.
