Very rarely do we stop to ponder the powerful motives behind our actions. Instead, we focus on what we want, when we want it and how to achieve it. We never address the ‘why factor’ and thus, we don’t tap into the burning desire that will push us to success.
When you dig deep and embrace the true intentions behind your fitness pursuits, you gain a sense of clarity. You understand why you’re taking the steps that you’re taking and you become deeply anchored to your goals. This keeps you on path and centred, as opposed to wavering between different goals, workout programs and nutrition plans. You also begin to gain perspective and start to accept that the only logical reason behind getting in shape is to enhance your life in a multitude of areas. To obsess about your training and dieting is to undercut the very benefits that getting in shape provides.
