"I don’t know how you do it."
I don’t either. I just do it.
I think a lot of people think there is a secret to being committed to training. Guess what? There is no secret. You just have to do it.
There are things you do every single day. Just add training to the list. Why? Because there is a pay off to training. You’ll feel, look and live better. That’s worth it to me. I don’t have to be passionate about it. I just have to do it. Some days I can’t wait to work out, other days, not so much. Those days, I do it because it makes my life better.
Think about the things that you do daily that you don’t love doing but you do them because they have an effect on your life. I don’t have a passion to wash my hands, take a shower, do the laundry, wash the dishes, take the garbage out, etc. but I do them all the time. I don’t miss a shower. I don’t leave dishes sitting in the sink. I don’t let the garbage overflow. I just take care of them. Why? Because they make other things in my life better. I don’t smell. My house doesn’t smell. My hands are clean. This makes me happy. It’s not a passion. I’m not a neat freak. It’s just life.
So yes, wash your hands, take the garbage out, do the dishes and go to the gym. Even it doesn’t excite you all the time. Even if you’re not a gym rat, add it to the list. You and your life will get better and better. Promise.
