What are You so Afraid of? Finding motivation in a world of fear [Ep. 45]
Why do you workout? Why are you trying to eat healthy? What's motivating you to do these things? How you answer these questions greatly determines whether or not you can stay consistent and actually enjoy the process.
I can't help but notice how deeply afraid many gym-goers and healthy-eaters are, even the extremely fit ones. They're scared to death of what their body would be without it all, they're petrified of failing, and they're paralyzed by the opinions of others. Their motivation source has lead them to obsession, a negative body image, and deep discouragement.
But perhaps we can crack the motivation/consistency code if we stop feeling so panicky and fearful about it all? What happens to our habits if we're abiding in love instead of fear?
"Let all that you do be done in love." 1 Cor. 16:14
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear..." 1 John 4:18
