Motivation: Your Eyes on the Prize


obese_13778tIt is really difficult to motivate people to do something that they don’t want to do. Really! We all know we “should” maintain our weight, (or lose weight, if necessary) work out regularly and focus on nutrition. But why isn’t that so?

Health and time are really gifts that we need to appreciate. The rest of life is just an outcome of our productivity and our capability. When we feel energized, have confidence and feel secure in who we are, we push to new levels of personal achievement. The well-known check list as I refer to it: Financial success, a nice apartment, nice clothing and a special car. We all have our own lists.

But all too often, we take the gift of health for granted.  When we feel well, the last thing we focus on is health. Ironically, the only thing that really matters when you’ve lost health is to get it back.   Yet how many people do you know go beyond the basics and cherish the gift of health to reach an abundance of energy, a lean defined body and maintain this till older age? Look at the general population and you will have your answer.

There are two reasons for this. One is because for most of us, motivation for change results from something bad, such as a cancer diagnosis, a heart attack, a stroke or perhaps an accident. And the second reason is because if you have good health you think it will just continue. And why fix it if it isn’t broken?

Health needs to be added to your top priority list. It’s not an optional; “I’ll do it when I get the time.” It’s a daily, on-going commitment. Then you truly can enjoy your personally created empire without the aches and pains people assume will come with older age.

We all need reminders like this to stay focused on our real goals. And the real prize.

Here is some homework for you: Revisit your value system.  What is your number one priority? And where does your health come in relation to this (nutrition, activity, fitness, vacation, time out)? Write down your list and post it where you can see it daily. If you care to share, pass it along to the rest of us!

Stay well and focused,
