Let’s face it, when life gets in the way, the first healthy habit that disintegrates is your exercise routine. After a hard day at the office, the last thing you want is to go for a run, deadlift or do Yoga. At this point, just putting on your sneakers can be a test of willpower and motivation.

The other day, I was asked a question by a reader and friend.
She asked: “It’s hard for me to stay motivated and consistently make progress towards my goals. How do I get motivated and stay motivated?“

When we understand and implement these fundamentals we create unstoppable motivation and achieve our goal.

I was working on my taxes at the time and the thought of doing more “chores” was about as appealing as getting a prostate exam from my doc. I said no. He stood there clearly not budging, indicating that it was really not a request. After an awkward pause, I agreed. I’m almost 30 years … Read More
