If you want to lose weight or get in shape but can’t seem to stay motivated, and regularly fall off the wagon, this one’s for you.
If you’re in this boat, you likely aren’t tuned into what we like to call your “why”, which is the deep-seeded reason for wanting to achieve a fitness goal. Here’s what we mean and how to discover it.
So when we encounter a client who is struggling with motivation we will often take them through an exercise to help them discover their why, by following these simple steps:
#1- Define what you want to achieve (your 'on the surface' goal - like "fat loss", or "increase flexibility")
#2- Think about why it’s important to you
#3- Then think about why that’s important to you
#4- Repeat the process, peeling away layers, until you feel a bit of an ‘a-ha’ moment
This process can be uncomfortable – and sometimes takes time. But there’s a ‘why’ is inside all of us, waiting to be discovered. If yours isn’t immediately obvious, that’s ok. Think on it for a while; if you’re honest and you stick with it, you WILL get there – and it WILL pay off in the form of motivation, positive results and lasting change.
PS. This process can also be applied to other areas of your life – including career-related, personal development, and personal/family goals.
