Happy Wednesday to you!!
Today I wanted to share with you the whole concept of being where you are today. Are you happy with your current financial, fitness, relationship, time-management, stress, etc levels? Why or why not?
I have to say that I’m a recovering “blamer” to many of these areas. For example, when I wasn’t happy with my fitness or weight; I’d simply blame it on something or someone else. “I don’t have the time to workout like I want.” “My kids take all of my time.” “I don’t have a private cook or money to buy all the pre-cooked foods to follow a specific plan.”
Excuses are just that; excuses. Nothing more and nothing less. They should actually be changed to “blah blah blah blah blah.”…because it accomplishes the same result.
Did you know that you are exactly where you are today; who you are today and with your current situations you are with today because of the choices and habits you’ve made up to this point?
The first time I read that piece of information, I pretty much threw a fit. Seriously. MY FAULT??? How dare you blame ME!
But in all honesty, once I got over feeling blamed, I realized it was completely true!
So, what to do? I guess after you come to the realization that this is true for you too (many times, peeps NEVER get past this and linger in unhappy mode all their lives!), the choice is up to you on which path to take.
The current path that is making your unhappy and not taking responsibility…
or the path to change it up and make things happen. Now, granted, a few changes won’t be that apparent in a few days or weeks time, but keep it up and that will compound to making HUGE changes over time. Trust me, consistency does pay off. If you keep plugging away (kinda like the tortoise and snail do); you’ll always reach your destination. But, if you hurry up and get frustrated then stop and go into another direction; time after time, you will NEVER get anywhere!!!
Am I right; or am I right? Bingo!!!
