Overall health has it's own rewards, but you also need to place realistic short term goals to keep yourself from getting burnt out. If your overall goal is the size and shape of Ronnie Coleman, even the utmost self-motivated and genetically gifted person will be daunted at the task of gaining 50-80lbs of solid muscle. Even with the right tools and motivation, it will be a good long while before coming anywhere close to realizing that goal, no matter how realistic it may be. By making shorter term goals that you can work towards and accomplish in a month or two, your sense of accomplishment is sometimes all that's needed to propel you into the next two months.
