PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINING
TIP OF THE WEEK
What is your “Why?”
If you have been around the block a time or two, more than likely, you have heard the phrase, “Why?” It could simple be “why are you doing that?” or, my personal favorite, “but, why?”
In this post, I want to take some time to clarify the difference between having an unbreakable ‘Why’ vs. having one that will halt your progress instantly.
More often than not, in the fitness industry, clients get really distracted with the ‘how to’s’ and the action of being in the gym, and the “inner game” gets put on the back burner.
The fact of the matter is that, if you get the inner game mastered, the how to’s will fall into place.
Here’s why this is…
- When you are committed to living a healthy life, some people will call you crazy. As long as your ‘Why’ is strong enough, you won’t let the naysayers stop you from achieving your goals.
- It takes risks sometimes to achieve your dreams and goals. If your ‘Why‘ is strong enough, you’ll be willing to take those risks.
- You will come face-to-face with your fear along the way as you set out to live the life of your dreams. Fear shows up whenever we try to push our boundaries and grow. The best way to overcome fear is to have a very strong ‘Why’.
If you have a really strong desire for this growth (A.K.A. a powerful ‘Why’), this is what will move you through your fears and your excuses.
Okay, so now ask yourself,
“Why am I doing this?”
How strong is the desire you mentioned when answering that question?
If you find a desire that’s strong enough, you will be able to overcome any obstacle that crosses your path. If the desire (the ‘Why’) isn’t strong enough, you will get stopped dead in your tracks when faced with obstacles or excuses. Here’s the key. When you’re thinking about your ‘Why’, remember that it has to be a well-structured ‘Why’ with strong roots.NOT something like, “I want to lose weight”.
Think about what the weight loss and how it will change your life. Go as deep as you can, and then you can discover your real ‘Why’.
