What pushes you? What inspires you? Why are you challenging yourself?
Motivation and goal setting are key ingredients in your recipe for success. And determining your “why” is the secret sauce to staying motivated and focused. Because harnessing the why behind your actions will set you up for the most sustainable lifestyle changes.
Your ‘why’ is the path that leads to “what is your goal?” and “how are you going to make it happen?” To find your ‘why,’ start big. Think of your long-term dreams and aspirations. Where do they stem from? What’s the overlying goal that’s led you to F45? That deepest truth will reveal your ‘why.’
Next, determine the steps needed to achieve your goal. What do you have to do? How are you going to do it? When are you going to do it?
Breaking your ‘why’ down into small steps is super satisfying, especially giving something a big check mark when you’re done – so make sure your progress is measurable! Plan meals ahead of time, and create a workout plan. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help from a health professional who can assist in creating a specific and realistic goal, in a timeframe that allows your development of sustainable healthy habits.
Most of all, spend some quality time understanding what you want to achieve, why you want to achieve it, and how you’re going to get it done.
Spend time for some soul searching. Your ‘why’ makes it all worth it.
