I am asked a lot, how am I interested? There are many ways to be interested. I will discuss some of the main ways in this article.
If you can find a burning desire, why you want to practice or be healthy, then you will be unstoppable. If you keep your mind on this burning desire, all excuses will fall, never find again. As you stop thinking about that great desire, excuses and fears are put in. Make sure you write it down along with some other things we're going to review today. Carry it with you, read it and find it daily. So what could possibly be a burning desire? Everything you get, you know, raises your energy; the desire to be slim, healthy, energetic, where the kids are older, around grandchildren, running 5k, competing in some sports concerts, fit into a small sports car, to touch your toes again, to swim your personal best, etc. Just make sure it is the most creative thing for you.
Another way to be motivated is to write down goals. Writing boundaries is so important, and without them, what are you shooting at? Without limits how do you know where you are going and how to monitor what you are doing? Make a goal, set goals that you will be holding this week (I will practice daily this week), reach the goal for next month, 6 months, 1 year and 5 years! Write them down on the same paper and your burning desire and be sure to carry them everywhere and read them daily. Don't forget to change them if needed. Many ask me why it's so important to do it … here's why. You eat food daily to energize your body, hopefully you are eating your body healthy foods. The same needs to be done with your mind, it needs daily motivation to continue energy!
On the same paper, do a few confirmations and read them daily. Verifications help you change your mindset, so if you don't like exercise, you need a confirmation statement; The exercise makes me emotional and I exercise daily!
Reading 10 pages of motivation or health book a day is another great way to be interested. My wife and I try to read at least 10 pages of good book a day. Yes, we miss the day here and there, but we are very consistent! Reading describes you with new things and new ideas, and that's great for the brain. If you can believe this, I never read a book I hadn't read all my life. I would even read the chosen own adventure book so I didn't have to read the whole book. It wasn't until I started to desire to improve myself that I started reading sustainable books all the time. Now I'm reading with my wife, listening to interesting CDs in the car and often reading on my phone.
The last way to be interested, and this is very important. Notice the thoughts in your head when you don't feel like doing a workout or even when you're down. This can be a great eye-catcher for you, when you begin to discover that some of your unconscious thoughts cause you to damage yourself. This one is the hardest of the list too, you have to pay attention to what the brain is thinking at all times. It is like weeding out the garden so that the extraordinary crop can grow. You need to weed all the limiting thoughts so that you can truly prosper and live a healthy life.
You've taken a big step in the right direction now that you've read this newsletter. The next step is to actually do what is listed and watch the magic that happens! I use the iLog1 application for iPhone / iPad / iTouch to track my goals, write down affirmations and even monitor my mood! If you don't like using electronic equipment, make sure you eat paper with you everywhere!
Say this: I love practicing daily!
