What Are Your 50 Reasons?

There comes a point in your life when you have to choose to get healthy.

Dustin shared Get Up Off Your Ass to help you get moving.  This change could be physically, mentally, nutritionally, sexually or a number of other areas in your life.

The choice to change is resonating with you, but you may lack motivation, desire, and self-control.

The problem is you quit before you get there.  You don’t have a big enough Why or enough Whys to see you to the end.

It’s time for you to reach your goals, and the way to do it is to have enough “Whys” to see you through.

These are emotional ties that help you get out of bed in the morning to workout, to look sexy or hot for your spouse, or to see your kids grow up and get married.

What is “50 Reasons Why”?

50 Reasons Why is your opportunity to write down all of the emotional ties that you have for making a fitness program work.  And not just for 2 weeks, but for life!

We’re talking about getting motivated to complete the entire program.

You can check out our Thrive90 Fitness Program for busy couples, but if you don’t have 50 Reasons Why you want to get fit, then don’t waste your money.  We want to help folks who are willing to take the time to know why they are going to get physically fit.

We love hearing and sharing success stories, and if you can’t spend 30-60 minutes to really examine why you are purchasing Thrive90, then don’t do it.

It’s time for you to write down your Whys.

Get a sheet of paper and start writing your emotional reasons for getting and/or being fit.  Don’t stop!

Now put this up where you can see it each and every day.  Put these Whys on post-it-notes, 3×5 cards, on anything that reminds you of why you are making a change in your life.

You can achieve the goals you have set out for yourself by knowing your Reasons Why…let’s do this!
