If you have a clear and solid fitness motivation, you have already achieved 90% of the path to the goal. In other words, even if you have the best equipment, the best trainer, and great support from people around you, but you don’t have motivation, probably you won’t even take the first step! So how do you get clear and solid fitness motivation? Here are some suggestions.
- What is your fitness goal? This must be really clear and measurable.
- Why do you want this goal?
- Do you really want to achieve this goal? Or someone told you that you should? If the latter, you should set a different goal
- What are the benefits you get if you achieve the goal?
- What will you miss if you don’t achieve the goal?
- What will be the reward you will give to yourself if you achieve the goal?
- What is the penalty you will give to yourself if you miss the goal?
- Find people who will help you to achieve the goal, and tell them what you are going to do.
- Set a step by step plan to achieve the goal. Each step must be small enough to be achievable.
- Write down the goal, the plan, benefit etc and post or carry it around so that you can see them several times a day
- Visualize yourself fail to achieve the goal and see all the things you will miss because of that.
- Visualize yourself achieve the goal, and get all the benefits.
- Read the goal statement, and do the visualizations a few times a day until you achieve the goal!
