When you start any new task, it's easy to be positive.
People cheer you on and the days go quickly. As time passes, though, our upbeat attitude can wane. It is in those moments that the rubber meets the road. When your job or other obligations seem to keep you from exercising your mind can turn sour. It is so important to remain positive during these downturns. You must continue moving towards your goals no matter what stands in your way.
As you become more fit from what may have been decades of being unhealthy, those same friends and family that supported you could slowly turn against you. Your success points out their failures. No matter the obstacle or no matter if anyone supports you, you continue for yourself. The only way fitness will take hold is doing it for you and no one or nothing else.
If you change to satisfy someone else it will never stick, it has to be for you and for it to work you must remain positive.
As you see, changing our body is dependent on changing our mind. A positive mindset will do wonders for fitness. Your body goes where your mind takes it. It will follow down a dark path or one lit with light and wonder. Take time each day to think of all of the positive benefits being healthy will bring to you and those who care about you. Go online to read motivational people and websites (start with this one).
Head to the library or grab your device and download a positive book to keep you upbeat. Drum the negativity of much of the world from your mind and your life. The more positive you are the more you attract positive energy to you. Like a snowball down a hill, this positive energy as well as your fitness will build over time.
Start today and always be positive!
