Working out has been part of my life since I was about eight years old. Although working out has not been consistent since the start at the age of thirteen, I was motivated to work out because I was overweight and I wasn't happy with myself. I decided to make a change and I lost around 8% body fat. It helped me a lot because it was a huge change for me. "Darnell Found Freedom Through Fitness" is a reflection of something that I have down before, which was finding motivation and succeeding. The scholarly article, "How to Motivate Yourself to Succeed!" explains methods and techniques that I used in order to become more successful in achieving my goal.
When I was seven years old my brother would spend the weekends at parks looking for soccer teams that were my age. Unfortunately, we were not able to find any soccer teams that needed players at the moment. My brother decided to tell his best friend to create a soccer team because his niece was looking for a soccer team as well. They ended up making a soccer team and I was motivated to do my best in soccer. I started becoming more serious at playing soccer and I would spend two hours or more at home practicing my skills. He pushed me to keep on going and ever since I have been improving on my soccer skills.
Finding motivation will make everything come easily and success will be more visible.
