There are three insidious myths about exercise and good nutrition — and good habits in general:

Lie #1: You have to be “inspired” to do good habits.

Lie #2: You should always be “motivated” to do them.

Lie #3: “Experts” are always motivated to do them.


Even for pros, there is no such thing as permanent motivation. You will not always be “motivated” or “inspired”. You will not always feel “flow”. Motivation comes and goes. Some days that motivation will be totally MIA.

But it doesn’t matter.

You don’t need motivation nor inspiration to have good habits. In fact, what differentiates an “expert” from an “amateur” is not motivation . . . but action. “Experts” hunker down and find ways to get the job done, regardless of how they feel.
