I caught this entry on one of my fave blog sites, Nerd Fitness. If you haven’t been on that site, please take a moment and check out Steve and his great adventures around the world. This short entry below is actually very motivational and is very reassuring for those downer days. Check it out below and leave a comment and let me know if it was useful or not.
It will never be:
- the right time
Nobody is going to:
- tell you exactly what to do
- drag you out of bed in the morning
- yell at you to eat healthy
- lift weights for you
- run a race for you
There will always be:
- sick days
- sleepless nights
- early mornings
- bad weather
- long days at the office
It will always be easier to:
- say no
- hit SNOOZE
- do nothing
- blame others
- make excuses
- give up
- say “I tried my best” when you really didn’t
Life is freaking tough - health, wealth, and happiness certainly don’t come easy.
For those reasons, you don’t need:
- The best equipment
- The best business plan
- The PERFECT workout program (it doesn’t exist)
- A super specific meal plan
And it’s okay to:
- not have all of the answers yet – NOBODY does
- not have your life completely figured out yet – NOBODY does
- get started and figure things out as you go
As Teddy Roosevelt once said, “Do the best you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Take action. Make changes.
You will make mistakes. You will fail. Embrace it.
You know what’s NOT okay?
- to expect instant success and gratification
- to give up immediately when life doesn’t go your way
- to keep doing the same thing while expecting different results
- to coast through life while complaining about it
- to constantly wonder “what if” without ever finding out
Tomorrow never comes.
Eventually never happens.
