TWM 51 – The Power of Inspirational Quotes


The Power of Inspirational Quotes

Today's Will Power Moment - 51

with Dr. James Meschino

Okay, we are now into week 51 in our series of understanding the psychological strategies and tactics used by people who routinely overcome daily temptations and challenges and consistently eat healthy, exercise regularly and live a more wellness-oriented lifestyle, and make it look easy – and usually have the body and health profile to show for it. One other strategy that helps many people stay motivated, especially with their exercise routine, is to read short inspirational quotes. That’s why many gyms have them printed on the wall or posted on bulletin boards. The cool thing about quotes is not the just words you’re reading, but rather how the words make you feel. Certain quotes can change the way you feel in a giving moment and instantly inspire you to follow through with your workout routine and wellness game plan. So, I’m going to rhyme off some of the most popular fitness and wellness quotes that have helped many people, including me, keep the motivation alive.If you like any of them, then I suggest you post them somewhere where you will see them every day. Reading them will help reconnect you with the feeling of inspiration you had when you first set your exercise and wellness goals.  And it’s that feeling state that ignites you to take action each day. So, here are some quotes that can help you stay motivated, especially on days when life is wearing you down, robbing your energy and providing an unlimited number of temptations and challenges.  Reading these quotes can quickly get you back into the right mindset for success.

Okay here we go:


1. One of my favorites from Vince Lombardi, “I never knew a man, worth his salt who, in the long run, deep down in his heart, did not appreciate the grind and discipline necessary to become a champion”


2. Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you


3. Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most


4. You don’t have to be extreme, just consistent


5. If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you


6. Train like a beast, look like a beauty


7. Fitness is not about being better than someone else, it’s about being better than you used to be


8. Fitness is a way of life, not a destination


9. You’re only one workout away from a good mood


10. No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everyone on a couch

And Regarding Food:

11. Real men eat plants


12. Food is the most used anti-anxiety drug and exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant


13. Junk food you craved for an hour, or the body you’ve craved for a lifetime? Your decision


14. Every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it


I like some of these. If you found any of them to be inspiring then post them where you’re bound to see them each day, as they can really help keep you in the right mindset for wellness success.


Good luck with your wellness goals,
