Do you need a gym to exercise? The answer is no. Then why else do you need a gym membership for? For vanity purpose?
When we go to the gym, we are serious. A gym is a place to train and when we go there, we train. Distractions are reduced. Take away our phones, distractions become virtually none.
When we go to the gym, we also meet like-minded people. People who are serious about why they are there. People who have goals and are motivated to improve not just their health and fitness but also their mind and their life.
Don’t underestimate the power of who you are with or where you’re at. Your environment is indeed a huge factor of whether you’ll succeed or not.
