Whether it’s getting ripped for Guardians of the Galaxy, challenging himself with CrossFit’s toughest workouts, or trying a fasting diet straight out of the Bible, Chris Pratt is known for his discipline and motivation. But he just admitted that even he finds some days harder than others. In a post-workout video on his Instagram Story, Pratt spoke about how sometimes, the motivation doesn’t always necessarily come first.

“Okay, sweat complete,” he said. “Whew, I’m pale, my spray tan’s wearing off. I had a realisation today that I wanted to share with you guys in this vein of motivating one another… It was 38 minutes and 56 seconds into this workout on the treadmill, just walking, uphill, I have a bit of a back issue I’m working through. Right now I’m just walking uphill. About 38 minutes in, it clicked in my mind that I actually wanted to be here.”

“Which is to say that you can make that decision to go motivate yourself and do the work, but sometimes the work come first. Sometimes you start the work when you don’t want to do it. And then the want comes after the physical. You can get stuck in a hole where you just don’t want to work out and you never do. Day becomes a week, week becomes a month, month becomes a year, and year becomes years, and you don’t feel good about it. And you don’t feel good about it. And so I challenge you if you’re in that state where you don’t want to do it, go find the want. It may be 38 minutes into your workout. Once you get it and you feel it, your whole day’s different.”

On the theme of motivating each other, Pratt ended by quoting Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
