I used to spend my days WISHING that I could be (insert adjective here) - whether it was thinner, fitter, smarter, more successful, you name it - but not actually taking ACTION or doing anything about it. However, one of the biggest lessons I've learned over the course of my fitness journey is this: if you really want something, it’s entirely up to YOU to go get it.
Trust me. You’re not going to achieve your goals by sitting around and waiting for someone to realize your full potential. You’ve gotta WORK for it - you’ve gotta earn it. Sure, the journey ain't always easy, but every ounce of effort that you put into pursuing your dreams will be given right back to you tenfold as a result.
Is it going to be hard work? Yes. Is it going to feel like it's taking waaaaaay longer than you had hoped it would? Yes. Will there be days that make you second guess whether you're on the right track? Yup. But is the grind completely worth it? Hell yes.
No matter what your goals are, no matter how long it takes you, you just have to take that first step.
Remember: nothing is impossible. Even the strongest rocks can be chipped away and stripped down by the constant driving force of the ocean waves. You just can’t give up. Sure, sometimes there’s a better way of doing things, but there is always, ALWAYS a way.
You want to lose 10 pounds? It can be done. You want to grow your glutes? Just say the word, and start working! You want to become more mindful? Start your own business? Fly to the moon? Train dolphins?
Your journey starts today.
The only reason things fail is because we QUIT when things become uncomfortable. We stop working out when we don’t see results fast enough. We’re afraid of putting ourselves out there so the videos don’t get made, or we don’t speak up. We tell ourselves it wasn’t meant to be, or perhaps maybe there’s a better time or place for your goals. But the truth is - everything you desire, everything you’ve ever wanted to achieve, they are all just waiting for you and the end of your comfort zone.
And all you gotta do is keep chipping away at the rock again and again, without fear, until it finally turns to sand.
With love and wellness,
