Whether you are an elite athlete or striving for a fitness goal, one of the best things you can do is stay on top of your own motivational fire. Believing you can is half the battle and you need to keep a few great thoughts in the back of your mind when you are thinking that you need some extra support !!
-Set goals. Make them achievable within the next 3 months. You don't want to have a HUGE goal that you are looking to accomplish because that becomes super overwhelming in the beginning. Set yourself up for success by making small attainable goals along the way !
-Turn off the media and DO work. Think of all the time you waste in your day looking at Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat? You can easily turn those things off and find something to do with your time that is productive and helpful for your goals. All those things are just empty space fillers which won't get you where you want to be anytime fast.
-Don't be in your own way. Whether you can or can't it's your choice. Don't be the one thing standing in your way to greatness. We all do it, we doubt our ability to achieve things. You can accomplish more if you try and believe in yourself that you can do it!
-Be your own cheerleader. Tell yourself good job for the things you accomplished today. Look back at where you were to where you are now and be excited to keep moving forward. Little successes are still positive movers forward!
-Take care of your body. Overtraining can be a huge motivational killer: when you’re overtrained you’re tired, sore, sleepless, grumpy, even depressed. Worst of all, your results come to a standstill. Take time to listen to what your body needs and it will repay you in PR's .
At the end of the day, you are in control of your destiny. You have the power to make small achievable goals that leads to larger ones in the future !
