Motivation… Either you have it or you don’t. I’ve always been a self-motivator. Fitting that I’m a Personal Trainer! But like anyone, there are times when I’m down and out. So, when you don’t have the motivation. Try borrowing it from someone… someone like your kid!
I had a really bizarre experience the other day as I was looking into my 3 month old’s eyes. It felt like God was telling me a message. I saw into his eyes and saw him 10-12 years from now telling someone (a friend),
“My mom is so awesome. She really worked hard when I was a young. She’s inspired so many people, and is a Rock Star online fitness coach. She inspires me.
Imagine your son or daughter telling someone, “My mom is amazing. A few years ago she lost over 30 pounds walking, lifting weights, and eating right. She got fit so she could care for us. My mom is an inspiration.”
Your little ones think you’re superwoman already, so borrow their confidence in you to get your goals accomplished!
When you’re down and out, picture your child bragging about you a few years later! Let me know if you try this out and how it’s worked. Comment below!
