Find a person or group of people that you admire and attach yourself, do your workouts with them. For me it is the trainers at my gym as well as the individuals who push themselves. When you are surrounded by people who want to be the best they can that mentality rubs off and you want to be the best you can be too.
With or without verbal encouragement from such people they will inevitably help keep you motivated by proximity. You will want to strive to catch-up or keep up with them. The relationships built in such a way keep you coming back for more.

For me, I've found my posture whether sitting or standing effects my attitude. When sitting at the computer, I tend to slump. Pulling my shoulders up and back, helps me to feel more confident. As well as when I'm standing, the straighter I stand, the more positive and confident my out look & attitude are. Give it a try. Trying is free.
STOP. DROP. AND ROLL. FROM A YOGA STAND POINT....STOP, REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE NEGATIVE SITUATION. DROP, YOUR SHOULDERS AND CHIN TO YOUR CHEST, DEEP BREATHE. AND ROLL YOUR SHOULDERS FORWARD SLOWLY WHILE YOU DEEP BREATHE.
AND FOCUS ON CONFRONTING OTHERS WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE!
STOP, DROP AND ROLL IS WHAT YOU LEARN TO DO, IF YOU ARE ON FIRE. WELL BEING IN A NEGATIVE CONFRONTATION THERE ISN'T MUCH DIFFERENCE! PUT OUT THE FIRE, RELAX AND DEEP BREATHE! THE BREATHE OF LIFE WILL HEAL YOUR MIND!
I noticed in the past I would avoid mirrors, hated the way I looked and was ashamed of how I looked so I never walked past a mirror if I could help it & if I had to I just wouldn't face that way so I couldn't see myself as the fat person I truly was. 192
It was only til I stopped one day and really stood there and noticed the true me I learned to accept the fact I was fat and do something about it. The old out of sight out of mind thing DOES NOT WORK. You need to face your Giants before you can defeat them & mine was a Giant waist...
