4 Stages of Motivation to Stay Fit

Go for full immersion. The best way to learn a language is to be immersed in the culture. Replicate that philosophy by surrounding yourself with the right people that will help you grow and develop your emotional fitness. Create an environment around you that is fruitful and uplifting on a daily basis.

Here are some ideas:

  • Do a pantry and/or fridge makeover by going through and reading the ingredients list. Clean out all the foods that contain chemicals and preservatives that you cannot pronounce.
  • Join a local running club that will help keep you be accountable.
  • Create a blog or Facebook page to post your daily activities, and invite others to join your page.
  • Set yourself up for success. Carry an extra pair of running shoes in your car, and pack an igloo to have healthy snacks on ice.

Stage Four

Living a fit lifestyle, opposed to temporary on-again-off-again habits, has an organic force that automatically replenishes its motivation. Stage three is encompassed in service. Living as the example can inspire friends, family and neighbors. When you live your truth, you become a sought-after volunteer with knowledge, and skills to be shared. Motivating others will continue to ignite your drive and instigate a renewal of goals and achievements of your own.

There is an important link between all four stages that must not be ignored. You can intellectually know all the right foods to eat, and the proper training you've learned through reading, but courageous action is the glue that holds your emotional drive and knowledge together. When you think with vertical mobility; always striving for continued growth and learning, your motivation will always be plentiful.
