So this question goes out to all the people who are losing motivation or who have already lost it and are settling for mediocrity because it’s the easy way out and they can live a comfortable lifestyle doing a normal job where they don’t have to think too much, and if they are into training they are just doing enough to scrape by in the gym, and thinking I don’t need to do any more, that’s enough to keep this average level of fitness up and I’ll settle for that.
I have been guilty myself now and again of this, thinking I will just take the easy route and settle for what that brings. But then I suddenly asked myself.. why wouldn’t I want to be as good as I can be!? really try to reach my best self? Sure it’s a harder path but think of all the rewards you will get if you put everything you have into your training, your social life, your work or any passions that you have and once wanted to pursue but it seemed to hard or someone said it might not work out.
So we all get one life, and we can end up wasting it living a boring, easy life with barely any challenges and hardly any achievements because we decide “ah why do I need to push myself too much? I may as well just enjoy what I have”.
Now don’t get me wrong enjoying what you have now is great and you definitely should always be in the present moment and enjoying the here and now, but ask yourself “WHY WOULDN’T I WANT TO BE THE BEST I CAN BE?”
By following this path you will have amazing experiences, push through fears you once thought you couldn’t deal with, meet amazing people, reach levels of skill you never thought possible, earn more money than you could ever have wanted and live a life full of challenge, fun and incredible experiences.
If you still need motivation think about the people you can inspire by being the best you can be at your chosen passion, they have that same love for it and may have just started out and they could be looking to you for inspiration thinking “Wow, look what this guy has achieved through hard work and dedication, he/she is so passionate about what they do they just ooze inspiration just by looking at them” so in the end it’s all bigger than just you and your path, by allowing yourself to push forward and try achieve all you have wanted you may just inspire people along the way to do the same.
Why would you not want to be the best you can be!?
