Please read this post from the Team Beachbody Message Boards and apply it to your life:
“I was in the chat with Tony Horton the other day. It was very thought provoking. He shared several principles of life and working out.
The one that stuck with me most and really got me thinking was: What is my purpose for working out anyway, and my purpose for life even more importantly, because to me they should compliment one another. His philosophy is really good and may surprise you. “Looking good is not a good reason for working out,” Tony said it. If that’s your goal then when you turn 60, 70 or 80 or whenever you don’t like your looks anymore then what? It’s all temporal, and temporary. So think about you purpose. This will give you the foundation to motivate you to keep working out throughout your life.
Here’s my purpose for life and working out: To love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and to love my neighbor as myself (my paraphrase). So working out is done so that I can have physical strength to serve my God, my family, and my neighbors – not just half heartedly, but really truly. My purpose is to have life more abundantly. I believe that life is a gift that we need to steward not squander. I want to be my best me. Then my purpose is also going to leave a legacy for my family and those I touch, because they will live healthier, more on fire lives because of what God did through me.
SO WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?? and make it one that lasts past your lifetime people! One that makes a difference for eternity even!”
