Nathan's Corner: How To Deal With Motivation

Today, I want to talk about something we all deal with: motivation.

We've all had those mornings when we feel like we can take on anything. But let's be real with each other, those days don't happen all the time.

Motivation is great, but here's the catch: it doesn't stick around forever. So, what do we do when we're not feeling it? This is where discipline comes in. Unlike motivation, discipline doesn't depend on our mood. Even when you're not feeling pumped up to train, discipline is what will get you through and help you stay consistent.

Discipline is what gets us to the gym on those days we'd rather skip. Think about those athletes who always seem to be on top of their game. Their secret isn't endless motivation; it's discipline. They've trained themselves to keep going, no matter what.


Here's how you can build that kind of discipline:

1. Set Clear Goals: Know what you want to achieve and why. Your goals will keep you focused when motivation fades.

2. Stick to a Routine: Make a consistent workout schedule. Treat it like a non-negotiable appointment.

3. Track Your Progress: Keep a log of your workouts and achievements. Seeing your progress, even the small stuff, helps a lot.

4. Find Accountability: Work out with a friend, join a group fitness class, or get a PT. Having someone to answer to can give you that extra push.

5. Celebrate Wins: Don't forget to celebrate your successes, no matter how small. It keeps you motivated and reinforces your discipline.

Remember, it's totally normal for motivation to come and go. But by building discipline, you make sure your goals stay within reach, no matter what. Keep pushing, stay committed, and let's do this!
