Do You Love Yourself Enough

That title might seem a bit strange coming from me; I mean, what does it have to do with exercise?

I’m the guy who tells you what exercise to do, not how to feel and all that other mushy stuff – right?

Well that’s not true!

Most of my work is very deeply woven into your emotions and psychology.

Let me show you (answer the questions in your head):

What is your main Health/Fitness Goal?

Why is that important?

Does that answer relate to how you feel about yourself?

Of course it does! If it doesn’t, then you’re probably a competitor in a sport – which, by the way, is also very much to do with how you feel.

We are completely emotionally-driven creatures and so it’s inevitable that, when you choose to look, feel or perform better, that it’s relating to how you feel.

Not a lot of people know this or think about this and that is why my first two questions for anyone that enquires about training with RAW are those very two which I just asked you a second ago.

You instantly start looking into your goals and their motives, and into what emotions are driving you.

So, now I’ve covered that, let’s look into whether you love yourself enough.

When answering that question, it’s important we consider the words ‘for what’ in response to that question:

“Do you love yourself enough?”

“Love myself enough for what?”

And this is where it starts to get a little uncomfortable because I’m going to touch on a subject that you’re probably avoiding right now.

Do You Love Yourself Enough to:

– Take your health and fitness seriously

– Actually do what is needed to achieve your goal

– Invest In Your Health

Whenever we approach a new goal, we look at the end product and see how green the grass looks – we get excited about what it will be like to be at the other end of the journey.

But what we fail to think about is the journey itself.

What you’re going to have to do, go through, and dare I say sacrifice in order to reach the end.

The thing is, for every fantastic achievement, goal and end product, there is an equal and opposite challenge, struggle and sacrifice in order to get there.

That’s the way it works

In order to achieve your goal, you’ve got to be willing to do what is required to get there..

and if you’re not aware of what the journey entails then I seriously suggest you find out before you get started because, if it pops up on you and you’re not ready, it will seem overwhelming and you’ll get stuck in the moment, telling yourself that it’s too hard, too painful, not worth it.. and you’ll quit.

It’s all gloomy when you look at it as its own individual entity.

But if you just start to appreciate it as part of the journey, you’ll start seeing obstacles as opportunities

Opportunities to harden yourself, prove your commitment and have some crazy accomplishments to look back on when you get to the end of that journey.

So, take some time to create that end result in your head

Get it vivid and naked in your mind, and then start thinking about what it will take and what sacrifices you must be willing to make in order to get there. (if you’re a ‘doing’ kind of person, you may want to write it down)

Once you’re clear on this, you’re ready to ask yourself the big question that will put you dreams into action, or cement them as the dreams they are:

Do You Love Yourself Enough?

Now it’s Christmas and I knwo you don’t want to do a lot of reading on this stuff, so I’m not going to go any further on this post; I can do that for you in a goal analysis when you enquire.

But for now, I just want to give you the opportunity to enrol onto our 8-week course starting in January where you will drop a jean size, guaranteed.

It’s a fantastic course that I designed entirely myself, and I put loads of hours into making this into the excellent program that it is.
So – regardless of your height, weight, gender or fitness level – it’s totally worth the investment IF you love yourself enough.

Well I’m off to spend time with family and get some time away from all screens and internet.

I hope to come back online to see your name popped up in my inbox, asking about RAW and the training package that matches your goal.

Have a very merry Christmas and remember to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday.

Until next week!
