Consider this scenario: If you go to gym and decide that you are going to stay true to your word and that today in gym you are going to get on bike for twenty minutes. You work hard towards this goal and all while you are exercising on bike you maintain this inward focus. Not only will you improve your health, not only will you lose fat, but you will also improve your ability to focus, your ability to commit, your ability to follow through upon what you say goes in your life and your ability to succeed!
This is true power of what exercise can do for your life!
Decide before your workout what attributes you need more of in your life. Do you need more practice committing or is integrity something you need more of? Whichever you choose they all can be practiced in gym setting. Consider following examples:
·Commitment – decide what exercise you will perform, for what time interval you will perform it and at what level of intensity. Then follow through upon your intention and DO NOT STOP until you are successful.
·Integrity – find your most powerful and uplifting posture. Lift weights while maintaining this posture. Use weights as a means to challenge your posture. The integrity is staying true to your form while being challenged.
·Perseverance – once again pick an exercise and choose how intense you want to exercise (keep it safe). After you reach end of your set, increase number of reps or increase weight and DON’T STOP (unless you feel pain) until you complete set as you intended. Persevere through effort and discomfort until you reach your goal.
There are many other attributes that can be practiced and all it takes is some imagination and some thought to apply them to gym. Balance, learning to adapt, endurance, intimacy, self-connection, inner listening, improving confidence and so on.
The real nectar you receive from working out this way is that when you reach goals you set for yourself as a result of your intention, you create for yourself a physical-mental memory anchor.
Then when you are in your life and you feel your integrity or commitment being challenged you can remember this anchor. You remember that if you can last twenty minutes on treadmill at 6.5 mph and remain true to that, than you can most certainly overcome whatever obstacle you are currently facing in your work or personal life.
