I’m in NYC right now and today my sister Karin joined me here. She brought a book with her called, “The Little Black Book of Workout Motivation” by Michael Matthews.
I chose to read a section called “Do the Work” and Michael talks about you can fight resistance now or hate yourself later. And he describes “Resistance” as an evil entity that is insidious and impersonal. It can’t be seen, but it’s swirling in you right now, and it can be felt. It will tell you ANYTHING to keep you from doing the work. It will lie, argue, bluster, seduce, and bully you to get its way. It will say anything to strike a deal, and then stab you in the back. It doesn’t care who you are or what you want to do. It has NO CONSCIENCE.
I LOVE this book and ironically I didn’t read anything specific to working out yet. I love how he talks about the psychology of what we need to do to motivate ourselves to do ANYTHING.
This is a great read!
