Staying Motivated

So I know this isn't really mma related but here goes. I just got recruited to compete at the World Dragonboat Championships in Malaysia in august. I used to paddle and was provincial and national development team and always like top 10 at nationals. The thing is I haven't been in a kayak in over a year, and even though I'm still in good shape from working out and doing mma I'm still nowhere near what I used to be at. I'm just wondering what you guys do to keep yourself motivated and on the right track to training. Right now I hit the gym almost everyday but I still don't have that eye of the tiger mentality anymore. I want to know how I can go about getting it back before I compete in August. Any suggestions guys????

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

do you want to come in first and be a hero, or do you want to come in last place and be a scumbag? hopefully you chose option A.. and there is your motivation.
