Everyone wants to have a beautiful body, but few people buy a gym membership.
If you really want to have a beautiful body, but do not find the strength to start, I have bad news for you. What separates successful people from those who will never achieve anything is ACTION.
1. NOT ONLY DOES MOTIVATION CAUSE ACTION, BUT ACTION CAUSES MOTIVATION.
Appetite comes with food. Motivation comes in the process. Just start and make a promise to yourself to exercise responsibly for at least a month. When the first results appear, you won’t need to find ways to motivate yourself. You’ll want more, and more. Believe me, nothing motivates like results.
2. LOOK AT THOSE WHO HAVE ACHIEVED
Find people showing their “before and after.” Constantly seeing impressive examples of the transformation will be deposited in your brain. With each passing day, losing weight and exercising will seem less and less difficult, and the possibility of having a figure like the one in the picture will seem more and more real.
Find examples of older people exercising, find examples of people who have lost 40-50 pounds and become athletic models. The more amazing the examples, the better. Against their backdrop, losing a few pounds and pumping up your glutes will seem easier. Overcome the fear – already half the success.
3. LOOK FOR BAD EXAMPLES.
Most people only take action when they have an urgent need. You can normalize your diet before you get diabetes. You can exercise before you have back pain or shortness of breath.
4. FIGURES FOR VS. SPORTS
Argue with a loved one about something really meaningful. Multiply your motivation by 2. Let you be motivated not only by the desire to have a beautiful figure, but also by the weighty bonus in addition.
5. CREATE THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT.
Make friends with people who are already exercising and watching their diet. Be around them as often as possible. They will not persuade you to eat a hamburger for company. On the contrary, they will support you in your endeavors. In the right company, getting used to a healthy lifestyle is much easier. Plus, you have someone to compete with.
Join a friend and go to the gym together. It will be harder to turn down a workout if, in addition to yourself, you let a friend down as well.
6. DIVIDE THE BIG GOAL INTO MANY SMALLER ONES.
Don’t try to write down your goal point by point. Write down the first 5 steps. What small goals you need to start with in order to move in the right direction. For example, going to the gym and giving up sweets. Small goals don’t look as scary as one big and distant goal.
7. REWARD YOURSELF.
Spent a week without sweets? Celebrate the occasion. Didn’t miss a single workout in a month? You deserve a gift.
Most importantly, don’t reward yourself with food. It’s a road to nowhere.
Music in itself is a great motivator. The right playlist will help you be active in the gym, giving you strength and energy.
9. WRITE DOWN YOUR RESULTS.
Results are the best motivator. Make it a habit to write down your accomplishments and completed tasks. This simple habit will focus your brain on your successes, increasing your motivation to exercise.
Write down all your accomplishments without exception: how long you lasted without sweets or what new weight you gained. It’s enjoyable and useful.
10. DON’T FORGET YOUR REASONS.
Everyone has their own reason for going to the gym. Some are afraid of getting old, some want to get rid of health problems, and some want to like a certain person. When the thought of skipping a workout, eating a tempting chocolate bar or just giving up the gym pops into your head, remember what you started it all for.
Beauty and health to all!
