As I Look For The Spark
Posted on February 13, 2011
No one in this world could ever say that they haven’t been unmotivated at some point.
What can be really hard is we all get caught up in the things were doing – school, work, being tired, over working our bodies…the list goes on.
I often find myself in this situation a lot. I have these huge goals, I work extremely hard to get there, but then the bad habits kick in and I lose motivation. I still work really hard, however, things just don’t turn out the way they are supposed to when your at an 80% motivation factor.
How do I stay at 100%?
Maybe I can? Maybe I just haven’t reached a level I am truly capable of acting in yet?
I really have no idea, but I know that I need to find it soon.
It’s hard to stay motivated when you get injured. But most importantly, you have to take care of your body and let it recover. I have a big problem when people who are out of shape make fun of people who are in shape as being “infatuated” or “losers that spend all of their time working out.”
Thats just stupid.
In fact, it is an obsession, but a healthy one. If you spend your time efficiently, work hard, and do it the healthy way, then it is more than okay to be doing what you are doing. What happens however is that people are always looking for a quick and cheap answer.
YOU CAN’T do that.
Before you shove pills, potions, or powders in your mouth to make you lose weight, think of what you are doing to your body.
Don’t take the easy way out.
It takes lots of work and discipline, but most of all you have to want it.
It’s so easy to drive down the street and pick up a huge burger and fries. But in the long run, those temptations add up and you end up not being where you want to be.
Impossible is nothing.
If you want an 8 pack, go get it. Don’t let anyone tell you you cant do something. It doesn’t matter if you are overweight, unmotivated, or anything else that may be holding you back from your dreams.
Take this message to heart – impossible is nothing.
Above my door in my room, I have all my goals posted.
Write one goal, in huge lettering, on one piece of white paper. Then keep writing all your other goals. Make it in a place you can see so you can look at it all the time. Make your goals vivid, see yourself accomplishing them.
Inspiration can help you do anything.
It can help you achieve monumental things that were never thought possible.
It all starts with one thing though – be who you want and how you want to be.
Become the person you want to be.
Don’t let yourself fail, just go get em’.
