Have you ever tried to help someone and they just keep giving you excuses on why something is not working for them? You try to give them suggestions and every direction you seem to go they have an answer for you. My job is to help my clients achieve a healthy lifestyle. Help them make better decisions and ultimately arriving at their goals. There are so many desired goals in life that are really wanted by all of us. Lets face it, we all would not turn down a chance to have the perfect fit body, a few million dollars in the bank, the ability to travel whenever we would like, and the perfect relationship to top it off. Everyone one of these goals requires dedication and sacrifice. Are we willing to sacrifice the things that we enjoy for the things that we desire? If those goals are not important enough to you, your immediate desires will prevent you from ever getting there.
If you really want something (and have realized this however many years you have been trying to get there), you MUST drop every excuse that comes in your way. You must build up the desire strong enough so that excuses don’t even enter your mind. Where there is a will, there is a way. If you want something bad enough you will work on it every second of the day until it is done. Most of the time it is not going to be pretty, fun, or exciting but your journey is not your goal.
In a world where instant gratification is what we are accustomed to, realize that you are going to have to be uncomfortable for a little while. The ultimate goal will be well worth your persistent effort. Kick your excuses to the curb and keep going, you got this!
