We had such a great crew for our Femme Fatale Finale on Saturday!
Every Monday, I usually bust a myth, but today I'm inspired to diverge from my regular blogging routine. Today I want to write about motivation.
Motivation is an essential component of our spirit. It's what guides our choices. It's the wind in our sails.
Many people believe that those who are successful have a deep wellspring of motivation. However, I firmly believe that motivation is developed through a small series of successes. That's right, I think motivation is the product of success, not the other way around.
Think about how you feel today, after a phenomenally successful Femme Fatale Week. This is just another Monday. Or is it?
Do you feel motivated to tackle today's training with new aplomb? That's because you had a success (or several) last week and now you're motivated.
See? Success breeds motivation.
Motivation ONLY comes after a win. It rarely precedes it.
Think about how you felt a week ago when we all did Gwen (our first Femme.) There was no prescribed weight. All you had to do was pick a weight that was right for you and hold onto that bar! How did you feel when you finished? Yep! Like a super star!
That feeling kept you motivated for Karen, Annie, Christine, Fran and Marguerita!
Keep your success from last week in the front of your mind as you prepare and plan your training days this week. Remember what you learned.
You are stronger that you think.
You can make tough choices.
Working hard has rewards beyond the physical.
Let your success last week be the motivator to tackle this week.
