If you struggle to find motivation for training and ask yourself 'why can't I stay consistent with working out?' then this blog post is for you.
I want to start this blog post with a quote that really sums up my philosophy in the whole approach to achieving body transformations that last.
Focus on the inner game and the outer game takes care of itself.
I first come across this idea when I was wanting to get into a relationship actually. When I lost the weight I didn't gain the self-esteem and everything that I needed to be out there and be more appealing, talking to girls and building that part of my life.
And there was all these things about techniques and the pickup lines and the fashion and how to sound better and come across better and doing all these things, but it seemed like a lot of work to pretend to be that way and this is what you might call outer game. All the techniques and tricks and things that you could do.
Working on the inner game building self-confidence and building a better relationship with yourself and ability to connect with others and doing all these sorts of things is working on the inner game. And then when the inner game is good when those things are there you just naturally connect with people more, you naturally want to be in a relationship in a better way that's not just serving yourself it's serving you know the both of you, and you just become a more attractive person.
Once the inner game is sorted out all the actions just fall in line and even though it seemed like a lot maybe more work to some degree to work on the inner game, I couldn't just do the quick tricks and get what I wanted. You had to go in and do the hard work but ultimately in the long run if we're just pretending and not representing myself truly as I am in the world then that's ultimately a lot more work. It would be easier really even to just do the inner work and then what happens on the outside it just happens and I don't have to worry about it.
And this is kind of the essence of what is the way to make it last.
In regards to fitness and body transformations this idea I think really holds well in that these days, people are just saying let's do this trick, or technique or let's do this hack and then you start trying to focus so much on 'oh am I doing the right technique?' 'am I having the right diet?' 'am I doing exactly the right thing?' and worrying about all these sort of outer game things and trying to track all the pieces it's very exhausting.
So if we do the inner work we align ourselves with health and wanting to be stronger and fitter and we really really want that, our values are in align with that in terms of discipline and motivation and all that stuff when you work on those things the outer game just takes care of itself.
You're going to naturally be drawn to be doing more of these many things and spending more time building those aspects of yourself because you're aligned with that. So it's when it's in you it's part of you it's who you are now and this is how it can really last and I think you can really if you just have a think about it you know yeah what it just naturally exudes out of you it's you have to fight yourself not to do it and that would be cool and it is cool.
So I think you absolutely by getting into this material and really getting into the process and all the different ideas we're going to go through I think that that can definitely be your reality as well. So if you'd like a more personalized experience of that coaching process where we get you connected to your reasons and really get motivated I do the coaching services and you know we can go through down the road of fitness and weight loss and body transformations.
