I was recently inspired by a fellow trainer and would like to share some of the main points in conversation. Enjoy the read :)
We have ONE body. That is ALL we will ever get. No spares, no returns, no substitutes. Isn’t that a good enough reason for you to take care of yourself?
Why should we wait until we have excess body fat, illness, and injuries before we get serious about our health? Why should we do actions that cause harm to our bodies and make us feel bad? How much suffering from physical and mental ailments will be enough?
The physical ailments like having excess body fat, diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol are what influences most people to start working out. These ailments are obvious and cause physical and emotional pain. The mental ailments are not as obvious, but they cause just as much pain. Mental ailments place shackles on our minds and trap us in cycles of procrastination, destructive behavior, and poor experiences.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
It’s time to declare war on poor health! We must arm ourselves with proper knowledge. We must inform ourselves of a game plan that moves us from our current state of being toward the best version of ourselves. Once we are armed with knowing how we should take control of our health, we need to take action against ignorance, inactivity, and addiction. We must inform ourselves of a game plan that moves us from our current state of being toward the best version of ourselves.
This may sound scary, but the process is actually quite simple and highly effective. It begins with asking yourself a few simple questions that dig deep into the heart of the matter:
Who am I? Who would I like to become? How far am I from becoming who I’d like to become? What game plan will I use to reach my ideal body and self? What barriers stand in my way? How do I remove these barriers? By when will I reach my goal?
Once these questions have been answered you are ready to achieve your transformation. Then you have one last step. Take massive action in the direction of your goals! That is all it takes.
Now go get some!!!
