Everyone who enters the fitness world has a reason. Maybe they want to get in shape to attract the opposite sex, or perhaps for a special event, or maybe they want to be able to see their children grow up. They know what they have to do, and how they are going to do it, but why are they doing it?
After many weeks or months in the gym, people start to forget why they are training in the first place. Somehow life gets in the way – work gets too busy, events start coming up, or they are just too tired. Training starts falling down in the priority order, until they fall off the wagon and quit.
This happens because people forget their why. Your why is what motivates you to keep carrying on when times are tough. You, and only you, know your why. A why is very personal and will differ from one individual to another. You cannot continue to do something if there is not a goal that drives you forward.
Take the time to reflect on your why. The journey towards what you want to achieve will always have obstacles. But as long as you remember your why, it will spur you on to greatness. Work hard at it and be consistent, and you will end up where you want to be.
