There are many of you in the gym that are working towards a specific goal (I think just about everyone is…) Recently I have been listening to a ton of podcasts in my car. Between those and the Frozen soundtrack (I have two girls…what am I to do)…I have been able to find a considerable amount of motivation and encouragement to do things better and smarter.
One of the best pieces I have been given, has been to approach everything with the attitude of:
“Will it make the boat go faster?” (If you want some more detailed information on this, a simple Google search will help you out)
As I listened to the speakers discuss this concept, it became clear that no matter how different we all are or how different our goals are, this simple question (or rather a slight variation of it) can be the motivation we need to either continue what we are doing or stop what we are doing and re-assess.
If you have nutrition goals…
“Will eating _____________ help me lean up/ bulk up?” Yes…eat it! No…walk away!
Have training goals…
Will doing 3 workouts today help me (insert goal here)? Yea…do it! No….STOP, walk away!
Take a minute and look at how you can use this approach to reaching your goals.
