Got Motivation 3.0???
I believe and have often said that CrossFit can give you the opportunity for UNLIMITED potential/results...LITERALLY!
Most all FITness programs out there strictly focus on the physical and nothing more. If that is the case then you do have an expiration date on your body.
The cool thing about CrossFit is it is much more than just physical results. You can attain physical+mental+emotional gains. And can continue to build improvements over time no matter the age you become...WOW!
Within the emotion and mental capacities I found a term "Motivation 3.0"
Can you explain the drivers behind the alternative approach, what you call motivation 3.0?
We have a biological drive, and we have a reward and punishment drive. But human beings also have a third drive. We do things because we enjoy doing them or because they are the right things to do or because they contribute to the world. Science shows that this intrinsic drive is the pathway to performance. The secret to high performance is that unseen intrinsic drive, the drive to do things because they matter, and I believe that includes three elements: autonomy, mastery and purpose.
Autonomy has to do with the desire to direct our own lives. Mastery is our urge to get better and better at something that matters. And purpose is the yearning we have to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.
Taken from: 1 - on -1 A Better Way to Motivate
The physical results will happen and happen fairly quickly compared to other FITness programs.
Here are 3 things I challenge those types of people that want more and have that "Motivation 3.0" in them is to:
- Further your education and experience by increasing your knowledge of FITness and Nutrition: read more, get certified, go to seminars, empower yourself and others by your passion to be better and to help others.
-Be a role model to your: family, friends, co-worker, neighbor, etc... Walk the walk show others with your action that anything is possible
-Start a blog: Share knowledge and empower others in the process.
People help, and YOU can help them. Start now!
