How are you all doing? Everyone's doing great? Hope ya'll are enjoying yourselves everyday.
Today's post will be dedicating to the man, the myth, the legend - Bradley Martyn.
I'm sure you all in the fitness community know who he is. If you don't, check him out on his social media accounts: @bradleymartyn / @bradley_martyn
Alright, let's get into the topic. If you follow Bradley, you'll notice he is constantly reminding people about "why". Why did you start this journey? Why did you do this? Why are you still doing this? There's a million why that you could be asking yourself. Whenever you feel down, not feeling the game today, always remind yourself why. This way you're always motivated to pursue your goals without hesitation. The constant reminder helps you to keep in mind what's important. Think about it, let's put you in a situation where you're stressed at work, not feeling it for the day, and it's time for you to hit the gym; some people would just skip the day without working out. Unfortunately, doing so would hinder your progress, and if there's a day that you would skip, it is most likely that there will be more skipped day coming on. So before you even think about skipping the day off, think about why you started and you'll get back the inner motivation back to continue work your ass off for your goals. This is not only in terms of fitness, but anything else in life. You should not skip or quit when you're feeling tired, you should stop when you're done. But that being said, this is not encouraging you to stop when you're done, bear in mind that when you're done, it should only be ONE OF YOUR GOALS and then move on to the next.
A simple 'why' can keep you up and running your engine hot all day. Trust me. Believe in yourself that you can do more than you think you can. Basically, if you're trying to lose weight, your 'why' is because you want to lose weight. if you're trying to achieve a certain level at your job, you 'why' is because you want to move up the ladder. Get what I'm saying? Simple as that. Fuel yourself with that special drive by asking yourself a simple 'why'.
*Disclaimer: This post is just a personal opinion from my own interpretation. You might have another interpretation from just a simple 'why'. But it should always be something positive that could be the special drive that keeps you motivated all day, everyday.
Thanks Bradley Martyn for all the inspiration.
