â€œGet over itâ€ is one of the most useless statements in the English language. Itâ€™s meaningless. It has no value. And itâ€™s used by parrots who simply echo what they hear. No mind of their own. Hereâ€™s why: First, try telling them exactly how to get over it. Secondly, not getting back to it is powerful motivator. â€œNot getting over itâ€ and â€œnot want to get back to itâ€ has been my most powerful motivation. Hereâ€™s a great example:
- I have never gotten over being an obese, dysfunctional 12 year old and never will. Itâ€™s driven me during a seamless, uninterrupted workout career because I have vowed never to return to obesity. If I had â€œgotten over itâ€ I would have gone back to it.
Trying to escape hell is a driving force for next-level athletic performance. If you want something bad enough, you have to not want something else even more. The Law of Survival â€“ something has to be done to not let the worst happen. If you donâ€™t take drastic action in the face of danger, the worst will happen. If you donâ€™t do something to stop a threat, it will happen. The return of fat is a real threat in my life. If I donâ€™t take action every day, history wonâ€™t repeat itself, I will repeat history. Fat will make a comeback. My job is to stop the comeback.
My point of this article is to find a driving force that will motivate you from within to achieve your goal of losing fat or not getting fat or both. Getting in shape starts at the top â€“ mindset.
