share. learn. thrive!
Inspired by the lifestyle changes recommended in Thrive and Thrive in 30, the Vega Community is here to keep you on track, share in your successes, and inspire even greater change to help you achieve optimal health.
Whether we were ready or not, 2012 is here. It may take a few days to recover from the holidays, but thoughts will inevitably return to what we’d like to accomplish this year. The Vega Community has been discussing goals for 2012, but even goal setting requires a certain level of motivation; so what exactly ignites that fire?
That’s the burning question, yet something we can only answer for ourselves. While our goals throughout the Vega Community may be somewhat similar, the motivation to both set and reach those goals is unique and individual.
Motivation is literally the desire to do things, and the reason we hit the trails instead of sleeping in. It is also the cornerstone of reaching our goals, and we have a big influence on our own level motivation and self-control. So yes, we aren’t just our own worst enemies- we are also our own biggest motivators.
Perhaps you’ve recently seen Brendan Brazier speak and are inspired to make some lifestyle changes; how are you going to turn that inspiration into motivation? There’s inspiration everywhere, so what inspires you to get motivated? Is it being healthy enough to keep up with your children? Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you want to take your fitness to the next level? Seeking more endurance, strength, or flexibility?
Take some time to reflect on these questions, read what motivates other Vega Community members, and then share your thoughts with us. Even just writing down goals can boost motivation as you lay out a set of instructions for your subconscious mind to carry out. Plus you’ll get lots of inspiration and motivation throughout the Vega Community to boot.
Your challenge this month: Share your secrets about what motivates you.
