Persistence is the key to unlocking success in life. When faced with challenges, it can be tempting to give up on our goals and move on to something else. But those who persist in the face of adversity will eventually achieve what they set out to do. 

In my 36 years of working in the fitness industry, I have observed that staying dedicated to a workout routine can be challenging for many people. I fall victim to this also. This is why I implemented motivation and persistence tips each day to stay focused. I have listed these tips below for you to follow. 

  1. Set realistic goals for yourself and break them down into smaller, achievable steps. This will help you stay motivated as you work towards your overall objective. 
  2. Create a workout schedule for yourself and stick to it as much as possible. Consistency is key when it comes to building a fitness routine. 
  3. Seek a positive workout buddy or accountability partner who can help keep you on track and hold you accountable. Interacting with individuals who possess a positive attitude toward life can be a source of inspiration. They don’t suck the energy out of you; they help create it.
  4. Ensure you’re enjoying your workouts. No, you don’t have to love everything in your workout, but overall, you must like what you are doing and see a benefit in it.
  5. Remember to celebrate your progress along the way – even small victories can help keep you motivated to continue pushing forward. Focus on the journey, not the outcome. It can be a great experience if you let it.
  6. Remember why you started this journey in the first place. 
  7. Practice gratitude daily. This action helps you recognize who or what you must be thankful for. It also reminds you of all your resources during roadblocks or challenging times in your fitness journey. 

So, if you want to achieve your goals, staying motivated and persistent is super important. Whether it’s in fitness or any other aspect of our lives, setting realistic goals, creating a plan, seeking support, enjoying the journey, celebrating small victories, and practicing gratitude can help us stay on track and overcome any challenges that come our way. Remember, it’s not about being perfect but about making progress. So, keep pushing forward, and you will eventually achieve what you set out to do.
