Finding what it is that motivates you is definitely part of the key to success. Find what it is you desire and let it be the fuel to channel your passions into creating the lifestyle you want. For me working out is a way of life ..a lifestyle I have adapted so that I can freely enjoy all activities and never feel limited because I am not fit enough. I like being able to enjoy all that I can with my family, friends, and feeling confident enough to take on new challenges. This motivates me and keeps me focused. That being said there are so many things that can motivate you. I have some clients who are motivated by keeping up with their children and others who are motivated to compete in racing or competitions because it makes them feel alive or accomplished. The key is to sit with it ... to go deep within and find what makes you tick... once you figure it out you need to be sure to implement activities that bring you joy, that feed that inner drive or genetic make up.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself ... maybe they will help you discover your Motivator!
What do you enjoy doing day to day .. are you an avid rock climber or a dedicated sport enthusiast ? Are you most comfortable in the kitchen whipping up elaborate recipes? Do you find satisfaction in creating art ? What hobbies do you enjoy ? Are you a team player or a lone wolf? When do you feel the happiest? Think back over the years what type of activities made you smile ?
Now dig deeper.. what is it about these activities that you enjoy? Is it the satisfaction that comes from making something from nothing? Is it the sense of accomplishment? Maybe its the warm feeling you get from helping others? Maybe its how accomplished you feel when you learn something new?
Discovering the truths under these types of questions will help you reveal what is required or most effective in keeping you on track and staying motivated! For example if your a lone wolf and enjoy the satisfaction of challenging yourself maybe weight training would be a good fit. If you love being with others and working as a team maybe joining a sports team or fitness class or some form of group training would bring you joy!
