I have been reading a lot of personal development books lately. It is one of the ways I challenge myself to be a better person, and continue to strive for my goals in life! It is so easy to get caught up in, “It’s too hard,” or “I can’t do it.” That is why it is so important to be growing each and every day!
One of the things that a lot of the books say is that you aren’t going to get this “aha” moment! I think some of us feel like we have no motivation to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. We say to ourselves, “If I could only get motivated, then I would start doing it.”
The reason we feel like we have no motivation is because it is true… we don’t have motivation! You aren’t just going to stumble across motivation one day and everything will change. You just start losing weight and doing it seamlessly. You have to create your own motivation and JUST DO IT!
I know this might seem harsh to some of you, but my goals and dreams in life are to help change people’s lives! This means sometimes having to tell you like it is. If you are sad or depressed that you aren’t where you want to be in your fitness level, then CHANGE IT! You have to believe in yourself that you can do it.
You aren’t going to want to do it. You aren’t going to like it at first. Everything will be difficult, and I can assure you that you will have PLENTY of excuses. Let me tell you a secret… everyone has excuses!
I know some of you have had very difficult circumstances that I could never even comprehend. The trick is to grow and learn from it. Don’t let those experiences or circumstances hold you back. There are so many inspiring stories out there about people making the best out of bad situations. Will you be one of those? Or will you be the one or sits back and whines about how difficult your life has been?
We all go through experiences in life. These experiences (no matter how hard) are shaping you into the person that God wants you to be. We only get one chance at this life, and I am confident that He has AMAZING things in store for you if you follow Him and His will for your life.
So let’s stop making EXCUSES. Let’s stop waiting until “the right time” when the motivation hits us. Let’s create our own motivation. Put on your success gear and get to work!
YOU are the only person that can change your destiny. No one else can do that for you!
I want to be able to look back on the last 5 years of my life, and be able to say that I lived those years well and doing what God has designed me to do:) I hope you will be able to feel the same way:)
Here’s to changing your circumstances!
