Working out is something that takes quite a bit of time to get used to. It’s something that you’ve always got to work at and is also something that is never going to be easy but I can tell you right now that the more you do it the easier it will become to start and that’s what I here to talk to you about today. This is something that I’ve always thought about when I wake up in the morning for my daily runs and is something that really makes a lot of sense to me now as well. I think the more and more I run the easier it becomes to make the decision to keep waking up every morning to do it.

It’s something that’s never really been easy to do and I think that running does get easier but I think what does get easier is the decision to run, and the will-power aspect of it because will power is a muscle and it’s something that must be slowly cultivated over time. Sure it’s going to be easy for you to quit sometimes but the ability to just keep going is what’s going to push you to do great things and is what’s going to get you in shape.

Getting used to working out is something that takes time and experience and is something I can tell you from experience is still going to be difficult. You’re still going to have those days where you don’t feel like getting out of bed but once you start doing it more and more it’ll become less and less common and is something that you’ll really find a lot of use out of as you get older. As we all know working out is really good for your body and is something that’s going to get rid of a lot of the stress that you might be feeling from time to time. Exercise is a great coping mechanism and is probably one of the most healthy next to humor and is something that I really think more people would benefit from doing. You’ve got to understand that exercise is a lifelong achievement and is something that you’ve always got to push yourself to do. If you can make this push tough and really go hard you’re going to notice a ton of great things in your life as a result of this and are going to have some amazing things come your way in light of working out.

Building Momentum

Building momentum is the next thing that I want to talk about and is something that’s really helpful for anyone that’s trying to work out. When you first start working out you’re going to have a lot of doubts about whether or not you can continue on and I’m here to tell you that that is completely NORMAL. There’s nothing wrong with having doubts about your abilities when you first start lifting because everyone has them and it’s something that will go away over time.

The great thing about doing this three to four times a week though is the concept of building momentum and it’s something that I’ll go over now.

Building momentum is pretty much like rolling a snowball down a hill. When the snowball first starts rolling (when you first start working out) it’s going to be small and easy to slow down and stop. However, if you keep pressing that snowball down the hill soon it’ll take flight on its own and be too big or moving too fast to stop it. This is the idea that I like to push onto people that are first starting to work out and is something that I think everyone would benefit from doing a little more of Everyone can workout more but it really takes a lot of effort to consistently work out day in and day out. This is where the real effort comes into play and is where you’re really going to start seeing great results in your life if you can just keep continuing on.

It’s going to be tough sure but if you can just tough through it you’re going to see so many benefits that it’s going to be amazing and you might just be surprised at how easy it actually gets.

Building a Lifestyle

After you’ve built momentum for a while you’re going to finally do what I call building a lifestyle. This is where you build your life around your work but still do it in a way that’s fun and easy to walk away from at a moment’s notice. This is how you get the most long-term of the results and is how you really start supercharging your life in terms of getting things done.

You see this is a marathon not a sprint and that’s something that you’ve got to realize. If you can just pace yourself and always keep going you’ll come to enjoy the path much more and won’t always be getting in your own way whenever you go to work out.

Soon you’ll have so much momentum that this is just another part of your life and you won’t even think about how hard it is to work out because this has just become part of your life. This is what you do and this is the way you live. Ultimately, that’s the goal that I envision with everyone that I lead on to this blog. I really want people focusing more on the LIFESTYLE aspect of doing this and not the other way around because that’s a defeatist mentality and is going to get them nowhere fast.

You’ve got to always be thinking about how this is going to build your lifestyle and how this is just another day in the life. Once you’ve done that you’ll soon see that this is exactly what you thought you for yourself and you might even be a little shocked at how it all came together. Just make sure that you’re always taking it one step at a time and aren’t stressing yourself to much on the smaller details. If you can do this I’m sure you’re going to have great results and will probably switch over to the lifestyle mentality much, much quicker.

Of course some people don’t want to have a lifestyle built around working out and that’s completely fine, they just want to do it a few times a week and even then you’ll still be building a lifestyle around working out with just not as much focus on this aspect of things. This is completely fine as well and is actually what I stress most people to try out first. I think the more that people can get their feet wet with the whole process and find out what works for them the sooner that they’re going to be able to switch over to this lifestyle way of thinking and in my opinion the more effective they’re going to become.
