When it comes to losing weight, it’s a common belief among the masses that motivation is a magical quality that some people have while others are deprived of it.
But the truth is the opposite. There are techniques, both easy and difficult, that anyone in search of finding the motivation to lose weight, get fit, or get healthy, can easily learn and act upon. By understanding how motivation works and being able to genuinely motivate oneself, one can conveniently assemble the building blocks they need to achieve weight loss success.
Sameer Sawaqed is a 23-year-old Gen Z influencer, mentor, and business development representative in tech, who was motivated to make a difference and drew his inspiration from him successfully losing 100+ pounds when he was only 19- an age where most teenagers are just busy having fun and have no serious goals.
Sameer grew up in Chicago. His childhood is filled with the struggles linked with being an obese individual. But once he decided to be his fittest self, he put in his truest efforts and lost 100 pounds.
He also made astute use of the power of social media and documented his weight loss journey to inspire and motivate others.
Sameer started his journey as an advocate when he was 19 years old only when he documented his 100-pound weight loss journey. The moments he shared with others have motivated many other people to take the first step toward weight loss.
Sameer fears leaving the earth without leaving behind an impact. “I want to build something so that when I am gone, I know I can continue to impact, inspire, and empower others. There is no better feeling than inspiring and empowering others.
Sameer started and documented his inspiring journey with #CommitWithMEER – a community of millennials providing support and encouragement for one another. It would be apt to say that Sameer Sawaqed truly understands the importance of having a mentor and dedicated guidance in one’s life and is striving hard to play his part in the life of his contemporaries to the best of his abilities.
But while Sameer believes in the importance of mentorship and motivation , he advocates that one finds the best motivation from within.
According to Sameer, “Needed some motivation today.. so I turned to myself! All of us have goals, find it within yourself to find that drive, and push to get after it.”
