We all have times when we lack motivation or inspiration. Maybe you know you SHOULD go workout or follow your diet…
But you just aren’t FEELING like it. So how do we keep ourselves in a mental state of motivation so we reach our goals?
Where do you get your motivation from?
Maybe you get it from watching YouTube videos, or looking through Instagram or Snapchat…
or maybe you’re a part of an online community that keeps you accountable.
How people stay motivated is different for everyone. What’s important is that you keep yourself surrounded by people and things to motivate you to accomplish your goals.
You may have heard this phrase before: “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”
Let me explain what it means and why it might be the most important thing you read today 🙂
In any area of life (health, fitness, career, love, etc.), you will naturally mold to the habits and mindsets of the 5 people you’re around the most.
What’s interesting is that this rule doesn’t apply just to the 5 friends you’re with the most. You might be forced to be around certain people for work, school, or even family members that aren’t necessarily the best of influences for you.
The trick is to control who you hang around to the BEST of your ability, and here’s why.
Imagine you’re trying to get in better shape, so you start doing the BodyEvo program and making healthy food choices. Now, imagine the 5 people you’re around the most are also doing the same thing, so you’re all able to motivate each other and workout together and share healthy recipes.
Alternatively, what if your 5 people have no interest in working out and are constantly eating junk food around you and poking fun at you for trying to get in shape? That would make it nearly impossible to achieve your goals.
Think about it, if the 5 people you’re around the most are all supportive of your goals and are also trying to improve themselves as well, how much easier would it be to stick to your nutrition or workout plan?
The thing is, it’s easy to talk about these things, and even to KNOW how important they are…
If we don’t have the right resources of information and people around us to push us and hold us to our goals, it’s hard to ever reach them!
If we want to become the best version of ourselves…we all need a little help from others.
Surround yourself with likeminded people, and you’ll reach your goals much faster (:
