Let me tell you a story:
I remember like it was yesterday.
Cruising out on the lake with family and friends to celebrate a good ole 4th of July.
Drinks were flowing and good times were to be had by all.
Funny thing was I was nowhere near the shape I’m in now.
See, all along I had a passion for working out and helping others…
But, as I was finishing up college, things began to get a bit stressful, my routine was out of whack and before I knew it…
I had packed on a few unwanted pounds.
Thing is it didn’t hit me until one of my family members mentioned something to the likes of:
“Hey, looks like someone’s putting on a little weight, you keep this up and before you know it, you’ll have a nice sized gut…”
Now, I know there’s always a good laugh to be had amongst loved ones, but it was something that lit a fire under my ass to get back to who I was before and never look back.
Isn’t it crazy, though?
We won’t do something for a long ass time in any area of our lives.
Until the minute we finally get the motivation after feeling triggered by something.
Think about it…
Aside from being called overweight, let’s look a little deeper here at things that might cause us to make moves and take action on things we normally we would resist.
=> One of your close friends or family members passes suddenly due to health related reasons
=> You lose money because your production at work goes to shit because by the time 2 o’clock hits..you’re already tapped out.
=> Your wife makes a comment to you about how hot the guy on her latest tv drama looks (something she used to say about you)
=>Your kids speak their mind to you and others about how fat
Whatever it might be…
It’s usually something that hits us right where it hurts but serves as the best prescription to finally have us make some moves.
So we finally get fed up with the way things are, we’ve had enough, and decide that it’s time.
Getting into a mode of what I like to call:
The next thing you know, you’re sitting there saying to yourself…
I wanted these results like yesterday…
Is a by-product of putting your greatest effort in.
Day in and day out.
Nothing more. Nothing Less.
And, if you know a thing or two about baseball…
Swinging Singles is a lot better than trying to hit big ass home runs every day.
If you try to do more, you will BURN out quickly.
Don’t do enough…
And, you will begin to get frustrated with yourself as to why you’re not seeing the results you would like.
I’m here to tell you, my man…
There will be days that Rock.
And there will be days that Suck.
But, regardless of what day it is or how you FEEL…
Make sure you refuse to give up.
Be willing to go all in on yourself and get after it even when no one is looking.
Let go of any self-doubt and take hold of what you truly want.
Do your best today, focus on YOU, don’t compare yourself to others and continue to EXPAND, grow, and level-up towards the person you ultimately want to be.
And, when you least expect it…
Your new best will be something beyond what you ever thought was possible.
