Choose Your New Body!

One of the best ways to find long-term motivation is to find someone with a body type that you desire and create a mental picture in your mind of being built in that image. Be sure the image that you choose is one that fits your frame. If you’re 5’2 and have wide hips and narrow shoulders, you probably wouldn’t choose Georges St. Pierre as a model image, although if that is what truly motivates you then don’t discount it. My advice is to find someone with a similar bone structure and frame. You may not even need another person’s image to motivate you. You may be able to look at your frame and see the finished product already. Arnold Schwarzenegger modeled his mental image after a guy named Reg Park. Reg had a large massive frame like Arnold, therefore Arnold knew he could achieve or even surpass what Reg had already accomplished! Once you have your ideal body seared into your brain, then you can focus on the process of getting there. The people that I know who are in shape had an image in their mind of what they wanted to be built like and their level of desire was high. They never questioned whether it was obtainable. The only question was “what must I do?” The way to do this is always keep that image in the forefront of your mind. I had one friend read bodybuilding magazines to always be reminded of how he wanted to look. The stronger the expectation of your desire, the more committed and motivated you will be. I do want to stress one thing: you must still focus on the process, not the result. I know this sounds contradictory, but it is not.  It is a fine balance. Too much focus on the image leads to fantasy, but focus on the process while keeping that image at the forefront of your mind leads toward your goal.
