Why Start Now?
Let’s face it. We all struggle with self image at some point or another in our lives. Whether it be a physical self image, or a social status or position we are in, it happens! I want you to stop and think back for a minute; remember the situation and how you were so positive on how to influence it for the better. How you had a plan, and knew exactly what you were going to do to achieve that goal! You did that for you, because you are worth it! Now, whether or not you stuck to the plan, or the plan got boring and ultimately failed, or you just never put the plan into action, I don’t care right now. The point is, at one point you believed in yourself, and my goal is to show you how to take that spark of motivation and turn it into fireworks. We all have one thing in common- a desire to learn more about health and fitness! A thirst for knowledge on how to improve the journey, and the results that come with it! And that’s why I am here. To share with you my story of struggle and success, and how every day I strive to improve to get the most out of my life.
Step one, is to convince yourself you can stick to it. Finding courage and motivation is one of the hardest parts of starting a new journey, a new diet, a new routine. Because for the one reason we really want something, we can find a million reasons why it’s going to seem impossible to achieve. So let’s not think about that! I find that it helps to first come up with a personal mission statement. Once you have that mission statement, you need to remember it. Whether it’s keeping it in your mind, or writing it on a piece of paper and reading it when the road gets tough. Or waking up everyday and saying it to yourself! I don’t care how, but you need to remember not only what those words are, but what they mean to you. Give them energy, and allow that energy to be the fuel that gives those words meaning, and puts them into action!
You wanna hear mine? “To strive to be the best version of me. To wake up everyday with a purpose and a smile, and to carry out my purpose through dedication to myself and to my journey. To love, respect, and be kind not only to others but also to myself. To strive to overcome challenges and fears, knowing that great reward can only come from great risk. To believe in myself everyday. To be happy.”
So why start now? Because you are worth it! Because you only have one life, and you deserve to have the best life has to offer you. So, what is your mission statement?
