What's your purpose for working out?
As we embark on this new year, it's the time of New Year Resolutions. New goals, new attitudes, new ideas, you name it!
However we are aware of how those goals fall by the wayside early in the year. We create these resolutions and a lot of the times, they don't even make it out of January.
So how do we change that?
One of the most common resolutions we make are fitness goals. We want to lose 'X' amount of pounds, or have 6 pack abs.
That's great and all, but in order for that resolution to stick, it has to be much more than that. Your goal has to have a purpose. What happens when you reach that weight loss amount? What happens when you get that 6 pack? Do you all of a sudden stop working out? Do you stop exercising?
When it comes to our fitness resolutions, the way to ensure we stick with it past January, is to instead focus on the journey, and not a singular destination. Focus on wanting to workout to better your overall fitness. Focus on wanting to workout to better your overall wellness.
There is nothing wrong with having a physical goal that you are trying to reach, but make sure that there is more behind it. Make the change to better yourself for not only you, but those that are around you. Make the change for those that depend on you.
When we make that simple shift, we are then able to commit to the journey and that's where we will see the results. And when we are on that path, stay focused on it.
Proverbs 4:25 says "Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you". Stay focused on the journey, don't veer off of it and you will see change for the better!
Let's adjust our thinking to our resolutions. Let's Be Greater!
