Famed strength coach Charles Poliquin explains motivation:
There is no such thing as discipline. There is only love. Love is the most powerful creative force in the universe.
What do you really love? Because you are the result of what you love most. You either love finely etched muscular abs more than donuts or you love donuts more than washboard abs you could do your laundry on.
It is as simple as that. Don’t beat yourself up that you have no discipline or further drown yourself in a sea of refined carbs. Admit that you like this food more than you love strength.
One of the best ways to raise self-esteem is to make truly loving choices that lead to increased strength of body and mind.
