You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction. -George Lorimer
This is a pretty powerful quote if you ask me. Personally, I like relating this quote to fitness goals, although it could obviously be power to drive any type of goal. How great would it feel knowing that every night you went to bed, you were completely satisfied with the day? Maybe it’s satisfaction from the run or the workout you had that day. Maybe you’re satisfied with the fact that you prepared meals in advance so therefore ate very clean that day. Whatever it is, it’s important to take a second each day to mask in that feeling of satisfaction.
If you find yourself not satisfied, why? What didn’t get accomplished? What did you miss? Take note of it, & change it. You will always have those days that unfortunately won’t pan out exactly how you had wished. How do you react to situations like that though? Was the event that caused such dissatisfaction even in your control, making it worth being up-set about?
Everyone has their own thing that may work for them but here’s what I like to do (& it’s just an idea)…
Know what you’re going to do tomorrow. Plan your workout and what time it’s going to happen. Plan your meals. Make a list of other things that need to get done that day so that you know they do.
I truly believe that doing this gives purpose to days, drives motivation (as well as determination) and allows for small goals to be reached daily with the big goal always in sight as well.
