Today was a rest day for me. I spent the day relaxing and enjoying myself. It was a nice day.
I've been doing alot of thinking about motivation and drive and it excites me. Adam Waters always talks about primary motivating factors, but I think that there are also primary driving forces at work as well. I honestly think that at times the PMF and the PDF are the same, but most of the time they are different.
For me a driving force is my health while a motivating factor is to be in a bodybuilding competition. One is more likely to be a problem than the other. In fact, the motivating factor can change and probably will change over time, but the driving force is never going to change. I will always be a shredder for my health.
I think this is an important distinction to remember. Our goals are PMFs and our life, health and longevity are our PDF. I believe that we need to plan our focus on both areas. At the same time, we can't give up. We can't make excuses because excuses just give us a way out. We want to remove our way out because they are really just excuses that get in the way of our accomplishments.
As I stated the other day, God doesn't ever give us more than we can handle and always gives us the strength to accomplish what we are looking to accomplish. When we fail it is because of our own limitations.

Today was a rest day.
Thought for the Day:
At some point you must ask yourself do you want your life filled with excuses or accomplishments?
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
