Motivation for Day 14 – A small change of routine


A small change of routine

Today’s Motivation for Day is from Eric Thomas. A small change of routine can lead to big changes in your life.

People underestimate the power of a small change. Most people won’t even take a first step towards a goal, because they think about the whole distance they have to travel. They think about the amount of work they need to do. They think they need to take a drastic measure to start off. They scare themselves out at the starting point. They don’t know that the journey should be treated like a marathon not a sprint. It’s about gaining momentum and not a big leap. It’s not something that will happen but you build it one layer after another. It’s not really about building the goal but building your momentum and the goal will eventually happen naturally. Do not underestimate the power of a small change.

An example…

800px-Airman_doing_pushupIf you have a fitness goal and you have never been to a gym, you don’t have to just go out and sign up for a gym and throw yourself in all those scary machines, weights, and “beautiful superficial arrogant” fitness douches and chicks. But if you can, then do so. However, if you are intimidated, start small. Start at your comfortable level. Why don’t you go for a run or buy some weights or even do some pushups at home. You don’t even have to do a whole a lot. Just give yourself 20 minutes a day. If you think even 20 minutes too overwhelming, give yourself 10 minutes. Do what’s at your comfort level. Do what’s easily accomplished. Do that. But DO IT EVERYDAY. Trust me. But you MUST DO IT EVERYDAY. 10 minutes a day may not seem much. But trust me. This small change is the start of your journey and I guarantee you it will make a huge difference. This small change will take you a long way. This small change may even change your life. Change your life drastically. If you make this small change of a routine, soon or later you will be doing more than 10 minutes. Do not underestimate the power of a small change.

This does not just apply to fitness. This applies to everything. If you want to make a big change in your life, all it takes is consistent small steps. SMALL STEPS EVERYDAY.
