Want to get motivated?
Jim Rohn, a motivational speaker, is often quoted saying, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Dr. David McClelland, a Harvard social psychologist, says, “[the people you habitually associate with] determine as much as 95 percent of your success or failure in life.”
4 Things You Need To Know:
1. Be Intentional With Your Sphere
Do the five people closest to you know your goals — personal and professional? Do they support your progress towards your goals?
If you set a goal to exercise three times per week, would your significant other encourage you to get moving or give you a hard time for taking time away from them?
To be successful long-term, you need to be intentional with the people you surround yourself with. You need people who will support your progress towards your goals and get motivated!
2. Separate Yourself From Negativity
Misery loves company.
Controversially, if you surround yourself with positive people you will also see more positive.
What topics do you discuss with your circle? Are you lifting people up or talking about people behind their backs? Are you encouraging each other or breaking each other down?
In a season of chaos and uncertainty, like this pandemic, it is easy to get frustrated. You must be intentional with your positivity. Find things to be grateful for. Part of your daily routine should be finding something that you are grateful for. Positivity breeds positivity.
I end my workday with writing down one thing that I am grateful for. As a family, we are intentional about finding bright spots. Every day at dinner, we ask the kids, “What was the best part of your day?”
This practice works in all aspects of your life– personal, professional, and spiritual.
3. Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone
I remember the first time stepping into a CrossFit gym. I was scared.
From the outside looking in, it felt like a cult.
But I had met some of the other members and they were all nice and very welcoming.
Over the years, CrossFit has changed my life forever.
That first step was the scariest, but I found my purpose because of that first step and also..I often hear CrossFit referred to as a cult.
The CrossFit community is not a cult. They are people who care about their health and taking care of their bodies to become the best versions of themselves.
4. Set Boundaries
This sometimes happens with nutrition clients.
Is it important for you to start eating healthier and get motivated?
WHY do you want to make exercise a part of your daily routine? How will this impact them if you are successful?
For most people, get motivated to regular exercise is a form of stress management.
The release of endorphins makes people feel better and be in a better mood. If you are exercising regularly, you are less stressed and in a better mood, which means you will be happier and a more delightful person to live with.
Being intentional with your sphere of influence.
