If you’re reading this right now then it means that something has motivated you. Motivation can come from a number of places and almost all are good. However if your motives are hate, revenge, or any other external force, then that is a start but not sustainable. So, some dude stole your girl and now your gonna get huge and you’ll show him right? Sure, that might carry you for a few months, maybe even a year but what happens when you get over that girl, or over that problem in your life, then your motivation is gone. Say your buddy is pushing you to go to the gym with him and your doing it but hate every second. Good for you but you’re wasting your time. I truly believe that the only way you will make progressive in anything in life is if You are are happy doing it and internally motivated. That being said, we all have to start somewhere. I myself got started with bodybuilding and fitness after years of being the chubby, weak and insecure kid. I decided it was time to make a change and the “I’ll show them” mindset kicked in. That probably carried me for a year and a half, that pain of being the weak kid was enough to kick me into gear and carry me for over a year! But then what, I was no longer weak, chubby, or anything to laugh at so now what? Give up the gym and healthy eating go back to how it was? Maintain what I had (stand still)? No! At this point fitness had become my passion. I have lived and breathed fitness from that point on for no reason other than internal motivation. It is simply put, a part of me now. I do not crave chips, chocolate or candy anymore I crave hitting the gym, having a protein shake and seeing results! Where ever your motivation comes from, stick with it until you become so internally motivated that nothing and no one could stop you! “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Eric Thomas
