Fun keeps you engaged in a difficult activity. Even if you are not good at what your are doing, having fun is important to keep you motivated and not giving into frustration. In the video below a running game was made with impossible controls. Yet the players are laughing their heads off as they watch each other try and fail. Failing was part of the fun. And they kept trying and kept trying and they were getting better as they made failing fun.
Find an activity that is fun. If biking is fun, do that. If you want to surf, well, you probably need to live near a coast. And if you do, and you fall in love with the ocean, surf. You will not be good at first, but have fun. Find what is fun and do that.
In your work towards a better you, remember to involve other people and have fun. Don;t be so serious. The work you do will lead to results. Relax and enjoy the journey.

I love Tony Robbins. He energizes me and makes me believe I can actually make lasting changes to my live.
When discussing healthy habits most people know what they need to do. Eat less and exercise more. Get more sleep and drink more water. Stay away from sweets and soda. The activities of a better health are obvious. So why do so few people who start a diet or a wellness program actually reap results?
Clearly identifying objective is key to change. “What do you want?” Losing weight is an objective, but might not be exactly what you want. I want to be able to keep up with my teenager. To do that I need to lose weight, but the real objective is quality time with my son. I also need to keep my sugars under control. The objective for cutting out soda is a long and healthy life with my family, not necessarily low sugar.
Purpose is the fuel for life change. The why to an activity is very powerful. A strong emotional tie to an activity correlates to completing an activity. Why do I want to live a healthy lifestyle? And who am I going to do this for? I want to feel good about myself. I want to be able to live long enough to see my grandchildren. I want to be a blessing to many generations of people. Generating emotion for an activity leads to completing an activity.
Finally, people do not complete life changes because intellectually they know what to do, but take no steps towards progress. Without clear objectives and clear emotional purpose change becomes a burden. Like anything difficult or new going back to old habits are comforting.
Listen to the video above. Does it resonate with you? Do you have a clear objective, purpose, and activity? Listen to Tony’s message an develop a massive action plan of your own.
