It’s not even me, there is a voice deep within,
Which makes some dance and makes others sing.
And when the time is ripe, it makes me type.
The tools of fitness motivation have to be learnt so that it can become intrinsic. When it becomes intrinsic it seeps into other parts of your life. The patience, resilience, and dedication which you learn at the fitness arena can be recruited throughout your life in every sphere.
One of the tools of fitness motivation is being comfortable with failing. Only someones who has the bitter taste of failure will push himself beyond and do whatever it takes to succeed.
Defeats make you humble, help you realise that hard work can never be taken for granted. ONLY when you suffer you will move beyond your comfort zone otherwise you will stay cocooned. Even if the cocoon is at a high level still it won't do justice to your infinite potential. Thanks @tombilyeu you are doing a great job with @impacttheory #dragonfly
Fitness Motivation – The Critical Crowd
Trying all the complex movements which I do have taught me that the people around you will always laugh. First at you, then at themselves and then with you.
There are people around you who are too afraid to try anything new. Fear has crippled their lives into empty existence. All they can do is play the role of an audience. An audience doubts and laughs at others who try something new, but when these people get better, the audience starts applauding and cheering them on.
The critical crowd will eventually be proud, till that time allow let their abuses to be mute and their cheering to be loud.
Fitness Motivation – Fail early
The earlier you fail in life the better it is. You will understand that after a while everything become alright. You adapt, learn your lessons and get better at the thing you failed at.
However if you live your life avoiding failures and risks you will prevent yourself from growing and live a crippled life. Even with your fitness goals, if you don’t focus on progression and try different things fearing failure, you will never leave your comfort zone.
Failure teaches you humbleness, makes you resilient, dedicated and patient. Along with this failure fills you with the necessary fire required to surpass your previous attempts. The earlier this mentality develops, the better it is.
In the fitness motivation video below you will see how I kept trying and eventually put in a good skipping routine, Although I failed many times, if I had stopped, been embarrassed or quit, I would never have been able to do it.
Belief over Doubt
So once you discover what you are after in the gym or in life, shut your eyes and ears to the doubters. Only be around ones who will fill you with confidence to chase your goals.
Most people don’t have it in them to leave their comfort zone so they impose their fear on the people around them. Sad part is, that it can be your parents, your partner and your friends. But you have to make tough decisions in life to fulfill your human potential. So silence everyone who saps your belief although it might cause you temporary grief.
Don’t read or see things which make you doubt or spread, do things which make you believe.
My purpose is to spread fitness motivation and from there let it percolate to all parts of your life. I see potential in everyone, don’t restrict yourself by what others think about you and reach the zenith of your potential.
