What Does this Mean for You?
The most important part of the process is to simply decide that you want your future self to be healthier, happier, and more physically capable.
This state opens the door to success in so many other areas of life.
So, if you’ve been thinking about “losing a few pounds”, or “getting into shape”, I strongly encourage you to look closer at WHY you want these things?
Is it simply to fit into your designer pair of jeans, or is there a bigger purpose?
The bigger purpose will help you put your journey into perspective, provide more joy, and make it much more likely that you will fit into those jeans over the long term!
For me, I want to be able to experience all kinds of fun adventures across the world with my wife, children, and future grandchildren.
I want to be a role model for them and be able to keep up with them as they grow up.
I want to age with dignity, grace, and to navigate life on my own terms.
Sure, I realize that there will be some things outside my control. However, it’s important for me to take ownership of the things I DO have control over.
This includes the mindset, habits, and daily actions that will determine my health, happiness, and fitness over the rest of my (hopefully long and vibrant) life.
This is what drives me to stay active.
People often struggle to motivate themselves to exercise. Experience has taught me that these situations are a sign that the person doesn’t have a purpose or strong reason to be exercising.
Next time you find yourself in this situation, I encourage you to step back, take a deeper look at what’s important to you, and what you want your future self to be like.
Here’s an image that I’ve used in many of my presentations. It’s always a good one to spark internal contemplation. Hopefully it helps create the spark of change in your life.
If you are ready to take control of your future health and fitness, I would love to help. Just email or call to see what that might look like for you.
