Working out can be tough. As we talked about last week there are plenty of distractions that could get in the way. There are plenty of excuses that can attempt to enter our mind. Even when we do get to working out, we may find a little groove and stick to a routine for a few weeks, or a couple of months.
But then it stops. Why is that?
Well why do we workout in the first place?
It may be to lose weight or to put on more muscle. That's great! It gives us some motivation, some reason as to why we want to commit to working out in the first place.
And we can rundown all the physical benefits of working out. But there are so many other benefits it has for us.
One of those being the impact it has on our mind. And our mind is the most important. If we can get our mind in tune, our body will follow.
We shouldn't just workout to reach a certain weight lost target or to have 14 inch arms.
Working out shouldn't just be a destination, it is a journey.
How we keep that journey going is renewing our mind each and every single day. We have to think positive thoughts, we have to think confidently about who we are. We have to block out any and all negative sources of energy that are in your atmosphere.
Because when you have your mind on your side, there isn't anything that you cannot accomplish.
So to make change that will last, start with your mind. Get your mind right. When you get your day going, speak out loud how your day is going to be. Speak how you're to have a GREAT day. Speak out at least one step of how you are going to reach that goal that you set.
Let your mind work for you, it's waiting to be used.
