There are two big driving factors when it comes to making progress in your health and fitness: Getting started and staying consistent. And each of those things requires a certain type of motivation.
There are two different kinds of motivation we experience: Internal and external. People who rely on external motivators usually fall short of their goals and fail to make much (if any) progress in their fitness journey. But people who learn to draw from internal motivation have the capacity to generate lasting change and actually exceed their goals.
So what is the difference between internal and external motivation? How can we learn to identify and cultivate the right kind of motivation to begin seeing progress in our own journey? And maybe the biggest question of all, how do we generate ANY sort of motivation at all if we are in the middle of a season of life where we feel completely unmotivated? We’re breaking it all down today for our Motivation Monday pep talk!
And as always, I’d love to hear from you! Are you finding these Motivation Monday videos helpful? Are there any topics you’d be interested in hearing about in the future? Let me know in the comment section here or on YouTube!
