  • So it's motivation watching the most inspirational video ever.

  • Just do it or his motivation.

  • Watching your favorite scene from a movie?

  • Or is motivation listening to the sickest beats ever?

  • Well, it can be.

  • But more than that, I think all of these things sort of symbolize the feeling that gets confused with motivation.

  • And the feeling that I'm talking about is excitement.

  • Now I have, ah, bachelor's degree in exercise science, which, as you can imagine, means that a lot of people talk to me about exercise and things related to ex ice.

  • And the most common thing that people talk to me about is that they can't motivate themselves to go work out.

  • And it seems that people are waiting for something that they would call motivation toe workout, when in fact they're actually waiting for the excitement toe workout.

  • In the difference between excitement and motivation is that excitement is a feeling in motivation is sort of recent ce to do something.

  • You can imagine this like if you were to motivate someone, you'd give them reasons why they should do something so you can be motivated about something that you're not excited about, but you can't be excited about something that you're not motivated about.

  • For instance, you can be really excited about a movie that's coming out and you're you're really excited about watching this.

  • Ah, but that also means that you're motivated to go somewhere and actually, like, watch the movie, either to go to the cinema or two, turn the TV on and watch the movie.

  • And that may seem like a really strange concept, like I don't need motivation toe turn my TV on.

  • But the truth is that you do need motivation to turn the TV on, because anything that you do, any action that you take, you need motivation in order to take that action.

  • So if you're going to stand up, you need motivation.

  • If you're gonna eat, you need motivation.

  • And if you're gonna go work out, you need motivation for that as well.

  • So eating.

  • For example, if you don't eat, you got to be uncomfortable, and then at some point you're going to die.

  • So that's sort of the reasons why you going to eat.

  • And those are some pretty motivating reasons, in my opinion.

  • And it's the same for watching that movie that you're excited about.

  • It's like, Well, why should I turn the TV on?

  • Because I want to watch this movie.

  • So being excited really just fuels your why?

  • Which means that if you have a strong enough, why, then you don't really need the excitement because you're gonna do it anyway.

  • And a good example of this would be drinking water, which I'm guessing that most of you do.

  • And again, this is one of those things where if you don't it would be uncomfortable.

  • And then at some point you die.

  • So again, I'd say that's pretty motivating.

  • But are you always excited about drinking water?

  • And I'm guessing that you're not always excited about drinking water, but you still do it.

  • And a lot of people look at motivation for working out as a state or feeling, which would be similar to the excitement of wanting to watch that movie.

  • And they think that that's how it's going to feel when they I'm gonna go work out when I think more people should should look at it more like the motivation that you have for drinking water, where it's like on some days like a really hot day for instance, you might be really excited about drinking water, but most of the time you're just gonna do it either, because you know you have to or because of just simple habit.

  • Like, for instance, when you're eating dinner, you'll probably drink a glass of water.

  • And that's just kind of habit.

  • So if you imagine yourself not having a glass of water with your food, that might seem strange for me.

  • That seems like that would feel really odd if I didn't have a glass of water with my food.

  • So if you're waiting for the day to come, when you're going to be excited about every workout in every training session, and if that is what it takes for you to go to the gym than you probably going down a pretty dead end road because I've been myself working out for, like, 10 plus years and go in 5 to 7 times a week, sometimes more, sometimes less.

  • And it's only a handful of times that I've actually been super excited about the workout that I'm about to do.

  • People need to stop stressing the feelings of what they're about to do and start trying to.

  • I think of it more like drinking water.

  • It's just it's something that you do.

  • And, uh, if you have a strong enough reason why you're gonna do it, then that will help you toe move towards actually doing it.

  • So what's my advice for someone who wants to increase their motivation?

  • The first thing would be Thio.

  • Think of why I, like, get a get a really good reason why you doing it.

  • And if you can come up with several reasons, that'd be really good, too, because the more reasons that you have the Easter it's gonna be to motivate you to actually do something.

  • The second thing would be to set a goal, and when I say set a goal, I mean said a specific goal and not a vague goal, and that's something that a lot of people do to us.

  • They set goals that aren't really very specific, which means that you don't really know ones when you're done with it, for instance, could be like I want to squat a heavyweight versus I Want to squat 100 kilos, the one with the heavyweight gold wood.

  • I kind of have trouble knowing when they're actually done because a heavyweight is very subjective and it could be, ah, 100 kilos of could be 50 kilos.

  • But the person with a specific goal off, ah, 100 killers, they will know exactly when they're done with their goal.

  • If they've done a squat, that is 98.5 killers, they know that.

  • Okay, I haven't done 100 killers, so they know they're not done with their gold, so it'll be easier to to see where you're actually going to go.

  • That's the second advice.

  • The third advice would be to break down your goal into smaller ones, which are easier to achieve.

  • So, for instance, the person that has the 100 kilo squat go, they can break it up into like, Okay, first of all, I need to be able to squat the bar.

  • Once I can do that, I need to be able to squat 40 kilos, 50 kilos, 60 heels that set throughout until you get 200 kills.

  • So that would kind of give you smaller goals that you can reach along the way, which will help motivate you along the way as well, because you will get the satisfaction of reaching those smaller goals, and once you've reached all of those small girls, you end up at the big goal.

  • So that's that's the third advice with which is really important.

  • And I think it's more important than second advice, which is the goal.

  • And the fourth advice would be to not focus too much on the specifics.

  • So, like, for instance, how many grams of carbs should do we should you eat card?

  • How many grams of protein When should you eat protein?

  • Should you fat?

  • You can get really specific with things, but like I said before, I have a bachelor's degree in exercise science.

  • And the more I learn about this subject and the more fancy subjects I study like physiology be biomechanics, sports, psychology, et cetera.

  • The more I learned, I realized that it's actually quite simple, and most people have the tools to actually make a huge difference for themselves.

  • And there's a quote by Kai Greene, who is a world class bodybuilder.

  • You said once that a lot of times the difference between the person that you see on stage, you know, reaching for their dream in front of the audience and sort of making their thing happen.

  • The different between that person and the person that's in the audience a lot of times wishing they could and maybe just living vicariously through the person on stage is a lot of times, not knowledge.

  • A lot of times it's not genetics.

  • A lot of times it's not any of the things that we you know what soon I want to give credit to.

  • The biggest difference I think that sits between those two examples of individuals is really the application of what you know.

  • I really liked what he said there because sometimes it's not about what you know.

  • It's more about how you apply what you know and actually trying to apply, you know, because so many people get stuck in, like if I have this or if I had that, then I would be able to do it, so just apply what you know.

  • That's the fourth part.

  • The 5th 1 is a quote from Matthew McConaughey, and I think he there was an interview.

  • I think I read this where they lost him about because he works out sometimes.

  • And they asked him, How do you keep in shape?

  • And he said, Just tie your shoes and I really like this.

  • Even though it sounds like a cliche or like a gimmick.

  • And it's not the secret for being motivated every day and having all the motivation in the world and going to the gym and getting in shape.

  • It's not a secret by any means.

  • It's just something that I really liked because that's the first step.

  • That kind of goes back to the third point of breaking up the major goal into smaller ones, which, if you look at going to the June as the major goal, then you break it up into smaller parts and the first part might be to tie your shoes.

  • And once you've done that, you can move on to the next part.

  • Next part.

  • Next Parton.

  • And all of a sudden you're after gym now, mind you, this is not a bulletproof strategy by any means.

  • I have done this.

  • I've gone out and like, tied my shoes and then decided like, God can't be bothered And then I've untied my shoes and gone back to the couch and watch TV.

  • But at least if you do tell your shoes, you're going to be less likely toe, untie them again and go back to the catch.

  • So that's my five.

  • Advice is for increasing your motivation and kind of structuring.

  • How are you gonna Yeah, how you gonna get motivated to go work out and do whatever it is you want to do?

  • So if you like this video and found something useful in it, I'd really appreciate it if you shared the video in some way or if you just like the video.

  • I appreciate that, too.

  • Um, and I think I might do some more videos like this if anyone likes it, where I will pick a subject related to exercise science, and I will kind of share my thoughts on it.

  • And, um, yeah, that's I think I'm going to do that.

  • So that's it for today, and we'll see you in the next one.

So it's motivation watching the most inspirational video ever.
