Motivation

What motivates you?

Sorry…no training or nutrition post today, but instead, something that might be more important.

Seriously though…what gets you out of bed in the morning, because every day I wish I could take the day off and just lay around, but for some reason those thoughts dissipate and I move on.

It’s Sunday as I write this.

I don’t need to be at my gym Forge-Rx putting in a little extra work, but I want to.

Want to know why?

I love my parents, but I was spoiled freaking rotten growing up.

I could get away with everything.

I never really got punished.

I wasn’t taught how to work.

Now, I saw my dad do it. He has that immigrant edge. He came from nothing and is a highly successful OBGYN.

When did things change?

One day my dad said he was going to kick my ass if I don’t get a job.

So I got a job and over time I slowly learned work ethic.

I learned I didn’t want to work for someone the rest of my life.

I started watching videos and reading books of highly successful people in my field of health and fitness.

I wanted what they wanted.

My family opened a gym and I have never looked back.

We started out great and then hit our bumps with a lot of drama inside the facility.

I wasn’t being a leader. We had employees leave which was what I needed to take ownership.

What motivates me is to never go back to where I was. A lazy ass kid.

I want to prove people wrong.

And I will admit I want to build a massive business that will impact a lot of people.

What motivates you to get out of bed every day?

Email me, because I want to know, and if you lack motivation email me as well. Let me help you.
