Action 125 - Fake It.

Contrary to popular belief, I don't walk around happily thinking about health, nutrition and fitness. And most mornings, I don't want to go to the gym. But I do want the physical benefits of working out, and that only comes when I put the work in.

So, Action 125 - Fake It. When I need motivation, I just pretend I already have it.
If I had motivation, what would I do?

If I was Super Fitness Dude, what would I do?

If I was my own personal trainer, what would I do?

And then I do it. I act as if I am already happy and pumped up and ready for a workout. Until I feel motivated, I fake it.

And before I know it, as I begin to feel the sweat pour down my face and the blood rushing to my muscles, I discover that I've faked it so much, I've actually started to believe it.

And that's how that gets done.
