One of the keys to success is consistency, but as we all learn at one time or another, maintaining motivation and staying focused on a goal can be difficult. I seek motivation of all types, but my most rewarding source of motivation is from my clients.
I can preach the benefits of BAM Logic!, but unless someone is willing to put in the work and take responsibility for his/her own motivation and plan, we are limited as to the results we can achieve. The dedication and drive I see in both my individual clients and my boot campers keeps me going and challenges me to always keep things interesting. Life happens, injuries happen, and yet my guys and ladies show up and give whatever their 100% is for that day. You have to show up.
The common denominator of my sources of motivation, they are all self-made success stories with humble beginnings. THE ROCK, has worked tirelessly to achieve the level of success he is experiencing; Tony Robbins, grew up in an abusive and impoverished home; and Les Brown started his life by being born on the floor of a building. All of the people with whom I work are inspirational in their own way. Each client is overcoming something and working toward his/her own goal. They show up, they follow their program, and when they get off track, they refocus and start again. There many clichés and quotes people use, but the bottom line is, success comes to those who work for it!
Every day, I work with people who are focused on changing their lives, their health, and their bodies. In order to make these changes a reality, they have to create a goal, create a plan to achieve that goal, and make a concentrated consistent effort. A perfect example of a transformation and consistent effort is #FresnoFitChef, Barb! Barb is someone who has changed almost every aspect of her life to achieve her goals. When she started her journey 3 years ago, she was a completely different person both mentally and physically.
If you Google “Transformation Tuesday,” over 40 MILLION results come up in less than a second! This is an incredibly inspiring number and a great resource to see so many others taking control of their future. A common piece of advice to help anyone achieve a new goal, is to surround yourself with like-minded people and those who have succeeded on a similar path. I would love to see your transformation pictures! If you want to share your fitness journey, show off your success, and inspire others, share your photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #CoachRobJsTT! I just might use it in a future Transformation Tuesday blog!
A public figure that I truly admire, is Tony Robbins. After growing up in a household run by an abusive alcoholic mother and being abandoned by his father, Tony decided to mold himself into the inspirational man he is, with no example in sight. He has transformed his life from that of an underprivileged child to that of a man focused on giving back to the world.
He is an incredibly well-round and intelligent man who has built his life on a firm foundation of education, hard work, and gratitude. His unique brand of life coaching has been sought after by celebrities like Leonardo di Caprio, sports figures, such as Serena Williams and MMA Champion Chuck Liddell, and even Presidents of the United States.
What I admire most about Tony is that he has created a platform truly designed to help people move forward, overcome personal obstacles, and learn to come from a place which is centered in GRATITUDE! He is making a huge impact. His relentless pursuit of personal development and contributing to make our world a better place, make him just the type of man I would like to sit down and have a beer with. Take 20 minutes to watch this Ted Talk by Tony, which has been viewed over 20 MILLION TIMES! He must be doing SOMETHING right! BAM!!!
