I wanted to share this because many people ask me about my motivation and I wanted to be truthful that I struggle too and this how I am getting past that.
The last few months, I have been juggling some injuries as I recently have started training Parkour and started Snowboarding which is a lot of fun but I did not listen to my body and I hurt myself. These injuries have thrown me off my game and the motivation for my health and fitness is at an all-time low.
I asked for help. "Create a vision!" They all tell me... "Start with your WHY and create a VISION for your life. You must read it every single day. It has to pump you up so much it pushes you through all your excuses!" They say, start here: "If time and money were not an issue, what would your life look like in the next 2-3 years?" OK... Sounds easy enough, right?? Well fucking A... I have been trying for MONTHS to create a vision that moves me and POOP!
Yesterday, I found myself sitting on my bedroom floor, quietly sobbing to myself because I just couldn't seem to get it together. I looked at the vision I created and it was SO BAD, it made something click.
My vision was entirely based on the material aspects of life. I wrote all down all the THINGS I would have but I didn't equate them to a feeling or emotion so they had no real meaning.
We're emotional beings. Our actions are not based out of logic but we act based on how we feel.
I failed to create a mental image of WHO I WOULD BECOME.
Who am I? How do I show up to the world? How do I deal with hardships and irritations? Am I unapologetically authentic in myself? How am I impacting other peoples lives? How do I lead and inspire others to better themselves? What does that look like? What does that feel like?
This is the vision I was lacking and THIS is what fires me the fuck up! Not the home, or car, or how much money I am going to make. This is the stuff that is worth the pain and discomfort from living my life out in the open with aspirations to help people reach their lifestyle goals. This is how I will push past the daily rejection and wake up on fire, ready to lead by example. This is where my motivation comes from! at Portland, Oregon
