Caution This Is Most Contagious

Drumroll please……

Wait. But first, let’s just make sure we’re all on the same page. Two days ago was the anniversary of John Lennon’s death, and the topic of yesterday’s post.

But today’s Lane 8 blog post is not about John Lennon, it’s about motivation.

It’s also about the number one most contagious thing (and greatest success factor) in the world when it comes to motivation.

Are you ready?

Okay, back to the drumroll.  Drumroll please…..

The number one most contagious thing in the world is…….ENTHUSIASM!!!!!

Can you hear the echos of some people saying, “That’s it?  That’s all you got?  You’re wasting my time!”

And others, “Yes, that’s exactly it. Try to do anything well without a mountain of enthusiasm.  Seriously, go ahead and try.”

What works best for you?

Imagine John Lennon

Can you imagine John Lennon as an athlete? I can, but it doesn’t seem he ever was.  His travel schedule was hectic to be sure, at least for much of his life with the Beatles.

So maybe he had an excuse – world travel.

Can I use it too?  Oh, and let’s see, may I also use some of these?:

  1. Too busy with work
  2. Too busy with school
  3. Too busy with the kid(s)
  4. Soon as the weather gets nice
  5. Starting January 1
  6. I can’t find an exercise I like
  7. It’s too dark
  8. It’s too cold
  9. I can never see results (fast enough)
  10. It’s too hard

Not exercising didn’t kill John Lennon, but it certainly may contribute to my death.

Do you ever think about stuff like this?

PS. Tomorrow, we revisit yesterday’s blog post and reveal the number one most contagious thing in the world.
