Stop Wishing, Start Doing
NEW YEAR. NEW ME.
Everyone once in a while I get a message that says "How do you look the way you do?"
I try to explain that I work hard on myself. Both inside and out, and it isn't always easy.
I can't sit here and say this happens by working out once in a while, sometimes going to the gym, or taking a workout class every now and then. It's hard work, but it pays off mentally and physically.
I am reading this book right now and I read a quote in which a gentleman who wasn't even really looking to get in shape explained what his trigger was to getting fit, and how it has more or less inspired his entire perspective on life.
I read it and thought, DAMN this is good so I gotta share.
"If I want a better-than-average career, I can't simply 'go with the flow' and get it. Most people do just that: they wish for an outcome but make no intention-driven actions toward that outcome. If they would just do something most people would find that they get some version of the outcome they're looking for. That's been my secret. Stop wishing and start doing."
I guess I decided a long time ago, at least when it comes to taking care of my health, I would stop wishing, and start doing.
So why not let this year be the one ; )
