For every one of these excuses I can find someone, somewhere who could have used the same excuse but they went out and did it anyway. Someone busier, more out of shape, fatter, more impoverished, older managed to figure out how to get the RESULTS they wanted.
Excuses are not reasons. The reason I can’t workout is because I don’t have time. Nope…the reason you can’t workout out is because you CHOOSE to not make the time to work out. Working out is not more important than whatever else you are spending your 168 hours a week doing. I could go on and on but I won’t.
Fact: Results and the resultant feelings of success and pleasure need to outweigh the pain of continuing doing what you are doing now. You are human…you are conditioned to move away from pain and toward pleasure. When the pleasure of living in a well conditioned, fit, active body is greater than the pain of engulfing a piece of pizza and drowning in beer then you will change.
Accept excuses and continue doing what you are doing now.
Accept results and change what you are doing.
It isn’t rocket science or brain surgery. It is a very simple human equation…more pleasure, less pain. Change is hard…it is going to hurt and you are going to think more pain isn’t worth the pleasure down the road. You are wrong. Put down that beer and back away from the pizza it isn’t worth it in the long run. You don’t have to believe me; look around at your friends and neighbors and parents who have made those choices before you. Then take a look around and find some people who are making the choices you are thinking about making. Who is healthier, happier, fitter and stronger? I rest my case.
Results not excuses.
