Last night I made it home from my most recent 9 day road trip black bear hunting in Idaho and attending another MagPul Dynamics shooting school. I am looking forward to spending the next few weeks at home, getting articles wrote, dehydrating food, scouting for elk, filming some blogs and most importantly TRAINING in the gym!!!
Once you have defined WHAT your goal is, you have to do some soul searching to define the purpose behind your goal.
Purpose is the WHY that makes you desire the goal. Without purpose or a reason behind the things that you do or want to achieve in your daily life, you can end up quitting before your goal is actualized. The PURPOSE is what keeps you trying long after you have ran through all of your excuses in your mind. With PURPOSE you never quit!
I have made it my personal vow to give it everything that I've got in the gym during this time at home in preparation to film another Stone Sheep hunt in Northern British Columbia. Looking forward to potentially 13 days with a 60 pound backpack on in some of the steepest, roughest terrain in the world, I have GOT to get in fantastic condition in a very short amount of time.That is my fitness PURPOSE.
Today I was an animal in the gym and gave it everything that I had.Trust me, without purpose, I would have quit well before my 2 hours of cardio was over. With my purpose in mind, I kept going and did not quit.
What is your purpose?
Define your purpose in all that you do and you will soon realize that you are living out all of your dreams...
