Good morning FITTNation!
Rise and definitely shine, because it’s time to get to work!
I know I know, you’re feeling a bit lazy, kinda tired, unmotivated because your goal seems so far away and you’re feeling like time is running away from you. SIGH!
I know the feeling…which is why now is a GREAT time to review your “WHY” and renew that drive again.
Just think – a year ago, you weren’t where you are today. Sometimes I even go back 5, 10 years to really see how I have progressed. Maybe it’s time again to do the same, this time not focusing on what you haven’t achieved yet but what you have conquered.
WHY ASK WHY
“Really Coach, what’s the point? I don’t even think I have a ‘why’ any way!”
Thing is you do have a “why”…matter of fact, everyone does. The only difference is simple: those with a strong “why” keep going despite the challenges, setbacks, discouragement, and moments of missing the mark. They are driven and determined to go forward even when the wind is pulling them back. They do not allow anything to stop them, even if the journey is delayed for a bit.
They’re persistent, consistent, and patient. Period.
But if your “why” is somewhat weak or what I like to call a “surface ‘why'”, the wind will blow you over with ease. Once the mark is missed, the effort is gone and discouragement sets in…sometimes leading to the proverbial “throwing in the towel.”
Ask yourself: which one are you?
There’s not one person that I have met that hasn’t had the desire to succeed; but I have met many who allow obstacles to derail them. Now that’s not with saying that those obstacles are understood and can be quite challenging to manage…but here’s why your “why” needs to be strong.
Life will throw everything at you, both good and not-so-good, light and as heavy as the weight of the world. But if you keep your “why” in place, firm and unmovable, your goal will be your next destination, even if it takes longer than you expected.
Prove yourself right
And make your “why” solid

“when one says “I can’t”, they cease the process of possibility in their minds. When one says “how can I?”, the process continues, opening their minds to unlimited potential” – unknown
Until next time…
