My Motivation Program
Reading about and observing the progress of the members on BodySpace is very motivating, as well as reading about those that falter. I see their weaknesses and errors. I learn from other people's mistakes, and strive to not make them my own.
I find motivation in the challenges life presents me on a daily basis. Bodybuilding has taught me patience, dedication, determination and focus. Life events will attempt to shake all of those things, and time and time again I will get off track...but I always get right back on! Through trial and error, I have learned that attaining perfection isn't about never falling off the wagon. It's about acknowledging that you did, regain your bearings, and get right back to it.
Though I started off on my own, getting to the point I am on my own would have been very challenging! I am eternally grateful for the guidance, support, and mentoring provided by my competition coaches. More recently, I feel very blessed to have found a competent and professional Personal Trainer, Travis Amorim (a Master Trainer at 24-hour Fitness), with whom I am able to intelligently discuss the latest research in nutrition and supplementation during my excruciating workouts!
I am motivated by encouragement as well as discouragement. I feel proud when I am acknowledged, and thoughtful when I am critiqued.
I am motivated because I know that there will always be a new goal to reach, a new obstacle to overcome and a new lesson to be learned. I am motivated because this sport is not easy. It tests the limits of my strength and sanity, and that makes me feel ALIVE.
