Most people don’t exercise.
Do you know why?
Because we don’t have to. Why would you do something that is not a need for your daily life?
If you don’t eat since morning, you won’t be able to work all day but if you don’t exercise, you can still go on with your day.
Now, what if you had a health condition where your mobility would depend on you keeping up with a workout plan?
Suddenly, exercise becomes a need like eating. And you have to workout your entire body, not just your mouth and stomach.
Most of us have the luxury of not needing to exercise often because we don’t have such health conditions.
But why do we have to get to that point before we take action?
I think the lack of inspiration matters a lot.
A couple of days ago I was watching a live Facebook session by Sean Stephenson. Do you know who Sean is? You’re about to find out.
His session was called “gym talk” and I figured he was just going to talk. I had no idea what was about to happen in the next few minutes.
Do you want to know what Sean gave to about 3,000 people watching him live?
The biggest source of inspiration anyone needed to get off the couch and workout.
You missed his live session but I’ve embedded the video here so you can see it.
If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, at least watch after the 26th-minute mark and check out how Sean does his workout.
While Sean was doing his thing, hundreds of people were commenting about how inspired they were to look after their health.
People were left with no excuse.
Do you know what punches excuses in the face?
But where do you find it?
Inspiration can come from everywhere. We just have to look for it.
When I started watching Sean’s video I was not planning or expecting to get inspired about exercising.
But watching his video makes you remember all the excuses you ever came up with for not exercising in the past.
We all need to feel inspired to take action and one of the best sources of inspiration could come from things we take for granted. Like a healthy body.
I hope Sean’s video has inspired you to move your body because if not, I don’t know what else will.
Changing your habits is one of the hardest things you can do. But it can also be one of most rewarding thing you can do.
When you change your habits, you inspire the people around you to do the same. It’s a chain effect and that’s what makes it rewarding.
Now I’d love to hear from you. What are some of the excuses you’ve come up with before? And where do you plan to find the inspiration you need to exercise?
