Become UNSTOPPABLE: How To Maintain Motivation

Become UNSTOPPABLE: How To Maintain Motivation

One of the hardest aspects of any fitness lifestyle – is maintaining the kind of motivation needed to consistently make improvements. It’s not easy with the general hurdles life throws at you – let alone when the injury bug comes around. The secret to staying motivated is hidden in plain sight – it comes down to discipline. Let’s get into this…

I don’t care who you are…

We’ve all had moments where the LAST thing we want to do is go to the gym.

Whether we’re tired from work or simply just plain tired…

There are times when we KNOW we need to go to the gym – but we simply don’t have the mental energy to put on the shoes, get in the car and head over to your local iron temple.

That being said…

There are other people that seem to be able to do this daily – without ever skipping a workout (or a beat) – and are able to maintain steady gains because of this seemingly supernatural gift.

What is their super power?

What gives them the ability to do what they NEED to do (not what they want to do) day in and day out?

The truth?

There is no super power.

They’re not magic…

They’re not even tougher…

But they do have something a lot of people don’t have: a plan.

Are you struggling to find the motivation to hit the gym?

Do you often skip workouts – succumbing to the siren call of comfort and laziness?

You’re not alone…

But it’s time to put the excuses away and adopt a relentless mindset.

That’s what it comes down to really…

A shift in your mindset.

The Secret To Staying Motivated Is Hidden In Plain Sight

Here’s the other truth that not many people want to talk about…

When it comes to maintaining motivation – there’s no secret.

Motivation is an EMOTION…

And like all emotions – it’s unstable.

That’s why those people who seem to have a super-human power of motivation don’t worry about or count on motivation…

They rely on something even better – discipline.

The Gym Warrior Mentality

In the gym, it’s not just about lifting weights…

It’s about tapping into something deeper.

Every person that’s alive today – has a warrior as an ancestor…

Or else they wouldn’t be here.

So, tap into your warrior lineage…

Imagine each workout as a battle and you’re the fearless soldier charging headfirst into the fray.

Understand that you’re NOT going to like what you’re about to do – but that it has to be done in order to survive to fight another day…

That’s the mindset we need to find – so the choice can be removed.

It’s either workout or die…

And we should all choose life.

That being said…

You need to KNOW that you’re not always going to enjoy it.

Embrace the Suck

Nothing worth having comes easy.

Instead of dreading the discomfort – change your mindset and EMBRACE it.

Recognize that the gym is not meant to be a cozy retreat…

It’s a forge where you shape your strength – both physically and mentally.

Embracing the suck is the first step toward becoming a true gym warrior.

Change your thinking…

Change your attitude.

Discipline Equals Freedom

As Jocko Willink preaches – discipline is the key to freedom.

It’s the freedom to achieve whatever goal you decide to shoot for.

The “freedom” aspect comes from being free from the chains of procrastination and excuses.

Discipline means showing up when you don’t feel like it, pushing through the pain or the tiredness and knowing that every rep brings you one step closer to victory.

Discipline is freedom because the choice is REMOVED…

So, you’re not enslaved to your body’s natural inclination towards comfort.

Find Your Why

Your “why” is your secret weapon.

Dig deep and discover what’s driving you to improve yourself in the gym.

Is it to boost your confidence?

Do you want to be healthier for your loved ones?

Or is there something you need to prove to yourself?

Your “why” will fuel you like nothing else can.

Write it down where you can see it…

Remember it – turn it into a mantra.

The Art of Non-Attachment

Taking a page from Mark Manson’s book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F#@k, maybe it’s time for you to learn the art of not giving a “F#@k”…

Especially about what others think.

Focus on your progress – not external validation.

The only opinion that truly matters is your own.

Crushing Plateaus and Pushing Limits

If you’ve been lifting long enough – odds are you’ve reached a plateau.

Plateaus happen when you don’t get any better – or any worse…

You just stay where you’re at – seeming to make little to no progress.

Here’s a nickel’s worth of free advice.

Plateaus are part of the journey…

So, instead of fearing or dreading them – use them as opportunities to prove your mettle.

Break through those barriers by staying consistent…

Odds are – it’s just a matter of time till you burst through.

If that’s taking too long – then maybe it’s time to set new goals so you can keep pushing your limits.

It may be in a different direction – but sometimes – a little bit of a break from the “same old, same old” is just what the doctor ordered.

The Aftermath: Keep The Momentum Going

Now, that you’ve changed your mindset…

Let’s talk about some little success keys to keep in mind.

First, celebrate your victories.

No matter how big or how small – we need to acknowledge our wins.

Success fuels us.

So, pat yourself on the back, then set your sights on the next challenge.

Next, if you celebrate your victories…

You should navigate your setbacks.

Setbacks are a natural part of any fitness journey.

The truly tough don’t give up at the first sign of trouble…

Just by understanding it’s a speed bump – and not the end of the road will go a long way to keeping you on track.

This is how you stay “motivated”…

By not using motivation at all.

If you want to improve your body and your mind – put motivation away in favor of a warrior’s mindset and you’ll never be tired again.
