Motivational Apparel Is More Powerful Than You Think

She Will Endure All ThingsThere is something about wearing a shirt with a message. It can make you feel strong when your mind is weak, and it can make you look as strong as you may feel. Either way, motivational tops are the craze right now, empowering men and women all across the globe.

This tank (left) is one of my newest tanks: SWEAT – She Will Endure All Things. Steve got a t-shirt that says “Fear is Useless“. So true! If you love motivational apparel too, here’s some thoughts to chew on. Get ready for good juicy bit of advice, because your motivational top may be more powerful than you think – for the Good or for the Bad.

What Message Are You Sending?

Purple_Mock__29792.1387586314.220.290One of my favorite tanks is this “Strong Women Empower Women” top. You guys know I love to encourage people to reach their goals. You also know how much I love motivational mantras and sending empowering messages. So this shirt is top on my fav list because it says what I hope to be. Are you already trying to figure out how in the world a positive shirt like this could deliver a wrong message. Well, keep reading (and have no fear, there is a very positive message in all of this too!).

We all have a chance to make a difference in someone’s life. It starts first with what we DO, not what we say. Then it’s followed up by evidence (results), the availability to help others, and your desire to pass along what you’ve learned. Everyone has someone who has influenced their life – especially in fitness. Some people influence people to go in the right direction, and some people influence people to go in the wrong direction.

mn1_20_698_2__68031.1391309704.220.290My warning today is if you wear a shirt like this, it’s like putting a Christian fish on your car. You are labeling yourself and there is a responsibility to act like your label. As soon as you put that bumper sticker on your car, you can’t go cutting people off and acting a fool on the road and expect people to believe your bumper sticker. A matter of fact, you may make everyone think every Christian is a jerk like you – and because of their one bad experience after you flipped them off, they may vow to never step foot in a church again. That’s quite a responsibility right?

The same goes with fitness.  If you wear a top like these tanks, you are labeling yourself as a leader and a fitness enthusiast – and people are watching. Will you be a good example or a bad one? Will your lifestyle, actions and words turn people OFF to fitness or turn them ON? Will people see you and think, “I’m never stepping foot in a gym if that’s how people act” or will they RUN to the gym out of pure excitement after watching you pick healthy foods in the grocery store, seeing you run in the rain, or watching you drink water while everyone else drinks beer. Will you inspire people to also be their best and get healthy?

Be a GOOD Fitness Witness

This doesn’t mean you have to be fit and trim to wear this type of shirt. It means you have to be going in the right direction. You should be TRYING – and you have to realize people are watching your every move. You are a “fitness witness”. If you wear a top that says “Never Surrender”, then you better never surrender!!!! If you wear a shirt that says “Strong Women Empower Women”, you better make time for other women, encouraging them, lifting them up and passing along your strength.

Remember the time you felt weak, fat, out of shape and completely uncomfortable in the gym. Remember how good it felt when people helped you. Remember how bad if felt when people were discouraging or acted to busy to help you. Remember what you needed when you first started – and be THAT person. Be the person making a difference and letting their fitness rub off on others.

NEWBIES: If you are new, remember you can be a great “fitness witness” too. Even if you are 100lbs overweight and just starting your journey, you can encourage others to do what you are doing. You might even be a BETTER “fitness witness” because your struggle is a little more noticeable than someone else who may not be overweight, but has another type of struggle. You have an amazing chance to inspire someone to get fit no matter where you are on your fitness journey!

More Accountability

Screen_shot_2013_09_10_at_7.53.52_AM__69903.1378951532.220.290People are watching you and it is SO GOOD FOR YOU. You can use that to empower you, to hold yourself accountable and to keep you on track. It gives you one more good reason not to fail. Your failure could prevent someone else from trying and succeeding too. There is someone out there looking at you thinking “if she can do it, I can too”. At the same time they are thinking, “if she can’t do it, no one can”. How’s THAT for pressure? However, I believe pressure is good. Accountability is healthy. Use it to help you reach your goals – and STAY THERE!

Show the world what you are doing and who you strive to be, for the most accountability and the most impact on those around you!! Wear the motivation. Be the motivation.

  1. WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR PANTS YOU SHOW WITH THE PURPLE TANK!

  2. Interesting post, thanks for sharing!

  3. At this moment I am ready to do my breakfast, when having my breakfast coming over again to read additional news.

  4. What’s up colleagues, how is the whole thing, and what
    you desire to say about this article, in my view its in fact amazing in favor of me.

  5. Love the motivational apparel. Half my current workout shirts have sayings on them! And it can change my mood and attitude if I know class is going to be rough or we have an assessment day I choose the saying accordingly. Instructor will sometimes even call me out on what it says. For instance if my shirt says “Killing it,” I better be!

  6. I LOVE these !!! I’ve been working out for years and have yet to get a motivational shirt.

  7. It is not my first time to pay a visit this web site, i am browsing this site dailly and obtain fastidious facts
    from here every day.

  8. Excellent post. I was checking continuously
    this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful information specially the last part 🙂 I care
    for such info a lot. I was looking for this particular
    info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  9. What i don’t understood is if truth be told how you’re no longer really
    much more neatly-preferred than you might be right now.
    You’re very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in
    relation to this matter, made me in my view consider it from a lot of varied
    angles. Its like men and women are not interested until it is something to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice.
    Always maintain it up!

  10. I every time used to read post in news papers but now as I am a user of net
    therefore from now I am using net for articles or reviews, thanks to web.
