THIS is why you are failing

passion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a pretty safe bet that at this very moment you or somebody you know is really “into” their fitness and nutrition program.

 

These people are exercising consistently, choosing healthy foods and living an active, healthy lifestyle. They may not have their “ideal” body (yet) but they are making inroads each day through consistent hard work.

 

Then of course there are those people who are simply going through the motions and doing some half assed form of exercise a couple times per week while lying to themselves that their diet isn’t “that bad” simply because they put some lettuce on the cheese burger they ate for lunch.

 

Both of these groups are exercising and eating with some form of awareness yet one is making progress while the other isn’t.

 

The reason for this really boils down to one word- PASSION.

 

The problem is people confuse this with another word- PROCESS.

 

You see, process is the “what and how” of a nutrition and exercise program.

 

PROCESS consists of;

The amount of protein, fats and carbs to eat and when to eat them

The types of exercise to do and how often

What supplements to use and how to use them

 

This is all well and good but it sure isn’t something anybody gets too fired up about. And that’s the problem- if you only focus on PROCESS it is really easy to get bored of it all and say “screw it” and go back to doing what you did before.

 

PASSION on the other hand is something else entirely. It is THE thing that will get you up early in the morning and keep you going long after everybody else has called it a day.

 

PASSION is what makes it easy to say no to desserts and other shit foods and yes to some more broccoli and chicken breast.

 

PASSION will get your ass out of bed in order to get that workout in before you go to work or keep your ass off the couch and in the gym after your work day is done.

 

PASSION will cause you to dig deep down inside and find out what you are really made of when the going gets tough and everyone around you has quit.

 

PASSION is going to get you through all the hard times and keep you going on and on and on until you reach your goal.

 

The truth is you gotta have it on the inside before you will EVER see it on the outside.

 

No pill, infomercial gadget or guru can do it for you- it is up to YOU.

 

In the words of what may be the greatest company slogan of all time- just do it.

 

P.S

Here is a an awesome video clip from one of my favorite movies. In this scene actor Alec Baldwin talks about getting the job done. I warn you, the language is rated PG but it is worth watching!

    GREAT article Bruce. I had this exact same conversation the other day with our President at work. I’ve forwarded your link along to several others at my work, so they can read, and hopefully understand.

    Cheers!

    Great post!! It’s soooo true!! People ask me all the time about fitness and why I’m so fit and what motivates me stay incredible lay lean, ripped, and strong. The honest truth is that I want it!!! BAD!!! I LOVE the way it makes me feel and all the other benefits that come with it. In the words of Achilles, ” I want what all men want, I just want it more.” AKA I want it enough to DO something about it and embrace the hard work and effort it takes to make success happen and NOT to make excuses!!
