“How Do I Motivate Myself and Keep The Momentum?”
A friend of mine recently asked me this question. Although a fair one, I have avoided answering this with many people in a truthful way, because I have been skeptical of the way it will get perceived.
But maybe my honesty might help someone out there to look at things differently. So here it is in exact words what I told my friend –
I don’t see motivation as an external thing but more from within. My go-to thoughts are the hard times I have been through in my life and thinking that my back is against the wall. I keep my aim to be present for my family with full energy and presence of mind. I think of training as something to help me channel all my energy into becoming a better version of who I was yesterday and more so to be in control of my own internal environment in order to survive in the external environment.
I truly believe that the way I show up in one area of life, I will do the same in every other area of life. So if my health is not in check them my family, career, finances, purpose, passion, and relationships will also go out of alignment. Training to me more like an anchor to get up and take control of life instead of others taking control of it.
To extend it further, it makes me a leader of my own life as I take charge from the get-go. I want to be prepared mentally, emotionally and physically before I step myself into the daily grind of working life where the battles of dealing with human emotions are constant.
Well, I hope this makes sense and helps some of you to start thinking about your life and health differently.
