Know Your Why
You know what you want; Health, look good naked, increased energy, cross the finish line in a triathlon, get faster, etc, etc.
It’s just as important to know WHY you want it.
Check-in with your values and motivation for the answers.
It’s simply not enough to just WANT to be healthy, to be at the right weight, to do an Ironman, to stay fit and strong.
If that’s all it took, then we would have no health problems in a society of lean, supple people achieving all their goals simply and easily.
Yes, it’s important to want to develop healthy habits, but without knowing WHY you want to reach a goal, you’re less likely to reach it.
So, think about it right now. What drives you? What is your why?
What keeps you going when things get hard? How will it feel to achieve that goal and tap into the emotions of it now!
- Maybe you want to train for a triathlon, 5k, or marathon
- Maybe you want to slim down to be able to move with freedom and love the way you look
- Maybe you want to prevent future health problems your parents had
It doesn’t matter WHAT your WHY is — only that you know what it is and can clearly focus on it whenever you need to.
When you know your why you are much more likely to do the hard things that come up on the journey to accomplishing these goals and dreams.
Now, get to work. You got this.
