All or Nothing: the Motivation Killer
All or Nothing thinking abounds in the fitness industry. Effective but erroneous marketing leads us to believe that we must workout hard for an hour 5 days a week or there’s no point; that we must sweat and be sore or we did it wrong; that we must lift the weights, do the cardio, and we must do it fast, heavy and with intensity…. Otherwise we’ll never get healthy.
I’ve met countless women who feel so stuck because they believe they have to do it all and do it perfectly, and when they can’t achieve or sustain the idea, then anything less seems like failure and they give up.
It’s not a very motivating feeling.
Our guest today is a participant in my Right Body for Me program, who has been able to transform her all or nothing thinking into creating a game she could win. She’s discovered joyful movement and feels motivated to chase health on her ters.
Listen in to hear how she made this transition and got un-stuck.
