THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: I can't tell you how many times I have tried to start a regular exercise regimen but I always end up getting distracted. How have you motivated yourself to stick to your routine all these years?
Answer: Finding out you have the perseverance to stick with an exercise program is a powerful discovery. It means that you possess a tool that can get you through the toughest times of life. The strength you develop by sticking to your exercise routine - even if you don't feel like doing it that day - is the same strength that gives you control over other areas of your life.
Let's be honest, it takes a fair amount of self discipline to exercise regularly, especially in the beginning when it feels uncomfortable and your muscles get sore easily and you think that everyone is more advanced than you are. But people that set and achieve physical goals discover time and time again that by tapping into their powers of perseverance, they suddenly realize greater success in other areas of their lives like personal relationships and careers.
