Motivation to inspiration by getting beat by a girl

Motivation. It is a curious phenomenon when something outside of you provokes a new way of engaging in your world. The real power of when motivation turns into inspiration, which is an internal force that provokes you to move toward your desired vision. I had this experience when I was provoked (aka motivated) by Angela Manzanares of Fitlosophy (www.getfitbook.com). I would never have been there on that beach in Corona Del Mar doing an insane workout at 6:30 AM on a Saturday! I was motivated by her taunting and challenges of being beat by a girl. The great thing is how great I felt later on that day. Motivation turned into inspiration for a new habit in my life with or with out the taunting of a really fit girl (hopefully without!).

So, whether you are motivated to a better body, better bank account, or a better life, know that much of your motivation is coming from who and what you allow yourself to be influenced by. Surround yourself with the people that will push you to the life say you want. The great business philosopher Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” So with that in mind, chose them carefully. Worse things can happen then ending up working out at 6:30 AM on a Saturday morning! … But far more wonderful things can happen too. Make your thoughts and words and conversations and relationships count. Every one of them. After a bit of time, you may find yourself turned into the someone with so much inspiration that you are now the one that motivates “provokes” everyone else to step it up. It only takes one person to make all the difference in your life. It might as well be you!
