Hello there,

So tell me, whats your motivation?  Do you need some?  Good.  Prepare yourself, you’re going to get some right here, right now, from me. {que the music} Risin’ up, back on the street, did my time, took my chances, went the distance …

Have you ever tried to “get motivated” to workout—but nothing works? You start to feel terrible, like you’re sinking deeper into couch potato land. You’re bored, lethargic, and you don’t want to meet up with your friends because you don’t want to talk about what you’ve been doing. (Or, more accurately, what you haven’t been doing.)

I’ve totally been there, and I’ve felt the frustration that comes from a lack of motivation.  So get ready for my mini pep talk.  Its time to turn it up a notch!

 motivationQuit complaining about how tired, you are.

We are ALL tired.  It doesn’t matter. The world doesn’t care.

We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are. Action speaks louder than words.  Take Action!  Ultimately your action or inaction will determine your success.  Did you catch that? It’s the secret to life. Seriously.


If you’re tired…quit staying up late.

Nothing like exhaustion for provoking de-motivation.  Take a power nap, go for quiet stroll, meditate, go to bed early tonight, turn off technology.  I wont be the social death of you, I promise.  Take a week off from exercise, catch up on some rest, its simple and it works.

Strive for Excellence

Quit believing that you have to be perfect.  

Nobodies perfect.  Nobody.  I’m not perfect, neither are you.  No matter how well you perform, nothing creates disappointment like failing to be “Perfect”. Nobody likes to fail. Strive to be excellent.

Alwasy Keep Learning

Quit being a One Trick Pony

Learn something new.  If motivation is fuel, new ideas are the gas station.

Read something, meet interesting people, enroll in a class, enjoy a new experience. Go forth and share your knowledge and experiences.  Now GO!

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger
