@marysfitbody: If you’re going to compete with someone…make it yourself. Sometimes when I need motivation… I’ll look at past pics of myself… I used to hang pictures from magazines on my fridge back in the day ( have a whole article on it in the blog section of my web-site) but as I’ve gotten older I set different goals… I don’t want to look like anyone else anymore… I only ever want to be a better version of myself.. don’t get me wrong; I think plenty of people are motivating and inspiring.. but in terms of my personal goals I’ll look at past levels of conditioning that I’ve had and then make a vision in my mind of myself in that physique only better… One of my friends commented the other day on how I used to look years ago, they couldn’t even believe that it was the same physique; my response: I didn’t know I looked like that, because in my mind there was always the vision of what I wanted to be…so I saw myself as that… and so I became that. Setting visual goals is powerful, I don’t mean something you can physically see… but something you can draw up in your mind’s eye and give energy to, focus on, and bring to fruition. It’s awesome to say you’re going to cut up, or put on 15lbs of muscle…but have you really put energy into what that’s going to feel and look like? Try it…focus on it everyday for even a small amount of time, and watch how your priorities and levels of discipline change.
