When it comes to exercise, there are multiple emotions that can guide our reasons for wanting to work-out. Our love for our families can make us want to exercise because they need us to live as long as possible, and be a positive influence in their lives. Our desire to feel the joy of success helps us to constantly push our boundaries in order to achieve better fitness results. And a multitude of other reasons personal to each individual.
However, there is one emotion that often gets overlooked when it comes to the world of exercise motivation: hate.
Hate can sometimes be taboo to discuss, but, its potential to produce massively positive results in the gym (when focused in a HEALTHY context) is too important to ignore:
You see, we are constantly in a battle, day-in and day-out, to do what we need to in order to become what each of us was designed to be. And, sometimes, hating the forces that prevent us from serving the world the way we were meant to, can be an incredible driving force to make us start up (and stick with!) the struggles of the gym life.
Often, in the game of life, we have to get angry in order to do what’s needed to make the world we love a happier place.
