Motivation is a very mysterious lady. You know she exists, and sometimes she comes in so strong and whips you into shape, and sometimes she takes a vaca to some remote desert island without cell reception.
Research has proven that Will Power is exhaustible. Yep, that means that even with every ounce of determination, you will eventually run out of will power. If you deny yourself the chocolate or pizza that you are craving, you will eventually cave if you don’t give Will Power some time off to join Motivation on her desert island. This is one big fat reason why restrictive diets fail nearly everyone! YOU didn’t fail. The restrictive diet failed you.
While Will Power absolutely must take a vacation from time to time, Motivation is a bit more amenable. If you entice her the right way, she’ll pretty much always come back to you and be ready to play.
One of the best ways to keep Motivation off her desert island, and in your back pocket, is to show her results from your fitness efforts. Nearly every person that I’ve worked with has said: If I see results I’ll stay committed to my plan and goals
So what does it take to ensure results? Check out this week’s video to learn my top 3 reasons why you might not be seeing the best results possible from your fitness and diet efforts.
