Self-Motivating Mind Trick #1: Pinpoint Your Motivator. 

Motivation stems from having a goal. What is your goal? Why do you want to get into great shape?

Once you uncover your personal motivator you’ll find that motivation flows quickly your way. 

Take a minute to really uncover the reason that you want to lose the weight. Don’t say something vague like you want to ‘Be leanerr‘ or ‘Look more attractive.‘ Dig deeper – there is a very specific motivator in your life, you simply need to uncover it. 

Here are some possible motivators… 

  • I want to have more energy to keep up with the kids.
  • I want to improve my health through weight loss to extend and improve my life.
  • I want to lose 15 pounds before my vacation.
  • I want to restore my confidence to wear sleeveless shirts.
  • I want to regain my figure to impress and attract my significant other.
  • I want to exercise so that I feel better about myself and improve my confidence and self-esteem.

Self-Motivating Mind Trick #2: Make It Official.

When you write something down it suddenly feels official, doesn’t it? Write down your motivator for getting into great shape, and post it where you will see it often—next to your alarm clock, on the bathroom mirror, or in your car. 

Each time you see your written motivator take a moment to visualize yourself accomplishing your goal. Try to make the scene as clear in your mind as possible. This is a powerful tool for maintaining your focus and direction. 

Self-Motivating Mind Trick #3: Be Practical.

It’s game plan time. You know what you want, and now you need to map out exactly how you’ll achieve it. It is important to be practical in your planning, rather than throwing out ideas that you know you won’t stick with.

With any fat loss goal it is important to 1) maintain a healthy nutrition strategy and 2) participate in a consistent and challenging exercise program. 

Plan a routine that will fit into your schedule and you’ll be more likely to stick with it. Also choose an exercise program that you enjoy—don’t force yourself to jog everyday if you hate jogging. 

Self-Motivating Mind Trick #4: Call For Backup. 

Enlist the support of your friends, family and co-workers. Tell everyone about your goal to shed body fat and get fit, you’ll be surprised how supportive most people will be. By being open about your goals you’ll likely be an encouragement to others to make healthy changes in their own lives. 

The most effective way to ensure that you meet your goal is to enlist professional support. If you need help, reach out. We’re here for you.
