Motivation is learned. It’s a result of reps on reps on reps. It’s about an excuse arising in your head and your ability to counter that excuse with an opposing solution.

I’ve created a nifty chart below. Blow that shit up, print it out and paste it somewhere you will see it often. When an excuse arises, use the chart’s applicable solution. And keep grinding at that. If you keep going, it gets easier. Your motivation will get stronger and eventually, exercise will be a habit just like waking up, brushing your teeth, going to work…
