Finding Motivation


How many people in this world who are so eager to lose weight but just within few weeks, you'll hear the same lame excuse again, "I easily get bored", "I don't have time" or simply just being lazy. Your motivation just disappear in thin air. You feel frustrated and find yourself in the old routine.
If you are a beginning to exercise person, then finding the right motivation at the right time can be critical to your success. You might get motivated when you want to lose weight to have the bikini body. Whatever the reasons for starting exercise, congratulation on just starting.

Now, the hardest part is to continue to exercise. The key is to keep in mind what is work for you. You must find your own motivation, deep inside yourself. I can yanking or blabbing about the importance of exercise but if the motivation doesn't come to you, then nothing will work.

In my opinion, exercise motivation is unique for each person.

PS : This post is inspired by Lance's Sunday Thought for The Day : "The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others, it is in yourself alone."-Orison Sweet Marden--

I think the quote above can be applied when you need exercise motivation when you need it most.

Hi Alia,
Yes, I also think motivation (to exercise, to work, to learn, whatever) is unique to everyone. And the key is to finding what it is, deep down, that makes it worth it for you. Otherwise, you're right, all the people starting in the gym this month - will be gone by March. It's within each of us...we just have to find it...

Thank you, Alia, for including that quote - I'm honored by your words...

People get motivated naturally once they start to see results. In the meantime they can get daily motivation by reading books, blogs or information that lines up with their goals.
