What's your motivation? Some find it in the form of support, but me, I find it in the form of competition. Once that word is mentioned, my game face is on. What makes it a competition for me is the reward that is at stake. Whether it is money, bragging rights, or proving the doubters that I can and will win, all get me that motivation I need and want to succeed. So in my journey to lose the weight I gained from my graduation and birthday celebrations and finally achieve my dream weight of 130Ibs, my main weapon will be competition.
I need to surround myself with it, eat, breath, and go to sleep with it only to wake up with it still on my mind. Motivation, its what I need to achieve my goals, and I will achieve it all through competition.
I know what you might be thinking, too much competition can turn a person into a compulsive competitor, but when I think of competition its more of a mental game I play with myself. For example, whenever I see a Beyonce music video I think to myself "I want a body like that" and turns into me trying to prove to myself that I can have what I want. In my mind I try to out do Beyonce (I know it will never actually happen but its a good mental motivator. Or when I watch I Used to be Fat I see that they can do it, so it becomes a competition with myself to prove I can do it just the same.
LESSON OF THE DAY
You know the saying "You are your worst critic" well in this case I will say "You are your best competition." If you can beat yourself then you've won in more ways than one.
