Everyone in this world aims to be successful. But in order to be successful you need to build yourself a path. This path should be a plan, a guideline, to help you get to your goal (success), helping you out at every step and problem that comes your way. Not all people define success in the same way, but we all are aware that in order to become successful you need to follow a plan.
Let’s say that you know a person who has a daily routine for exercising. His entire exercise cycle may take two hours or even more but no matter how long his exercise routine is, he will never miss out even a single day. What is that one thing that is driving him to do so? You ask him why he does it and he responds by saying he enjoys doing it and looks forward to it every single day. At first, it may sound a little awkward to you and you start to think that maybe he has something for self-motivation or self-discipline, after sometime it starts making sense to you. His explanation sounds somewhat logical to you. This individual has the level of motivation that is not prevailing in most us.
Motivation is the driving force for any person in this world. Motivation is the reason you will undertake any task in your lifetime and make sure that it is done so you can enjoy success. It can also be defined as the force which pushes you to achieve your goal. The root of motivation is totally psychological rather than any other dimension. Staying in shape requires you to be motivated so you can follow that routine every day and the practical world is no different either.
Establish what your main goal is but make sure you follow a specific guideline. This plan of yours should have many little goals which you will achieve on the way to fulfill your full and final goal, getting you nothing but success. The main thing that one needs to ensure is that he/she never stops doing something in the middle of it. Being a quitter is not something that anyone would want to become. Once you start quitting, it will definitely become a habit. Having the support of people around you will help you stay motivated and, hence, successful. Talk to people around you that have the same interest as you so you can adopt some of their positive ideas and attitudes. Creating motivation leads to determination, and it is determination that helps you get where you want to go.
Exercising and working out according to a certain routine is no different from all this. Such daily activity also requires a plan which you must follow, and it can only be followed if you are motivated. Staying away from junk foods, doing specific exercises, and moving away from your diet and exercise plan all requires motivation. Relate this to the real-world and you will see how the planning and motivation involved in staying in shape is no different from what is required of you from in this world.
