I have an announcement to make: I got a personal trainer!
Yep! That is right! I had long decided that I wanted to get my body back into optimum health. But there were always excuses. Not enough time, not enough money for training, I’m too tired, or there is too much on my plate. Well, excuse my language, but that is all bullshit!
I thrive when my schedule is packed to the gills, I always can find time if it is something I want to do, I am only tired because I am not working out and not getting enough sleep, and if I really desire something – I will find a way to make it happen!
Yesterday, I went to the gym, only to set off a chain of events that ended with an amazing, free personal training session and me haggling the price of future sessions with the head trainer. When I walked in the gym, they pulled me aside and asked if I wanted to renew my gym membership right then and get a month free, I said, “Sure, why not?” While renewing, the head trainer, who just happen to be sitting there, offered me a free training session because his appointment just happened to cancel. Now, I have learned over the years that I need to listen when Nature is trying to tell me something, and right then I got that this was my chance.
Now, it wasn’t in the budget at the time, and I knew that, but I have always found a way to make things work. I knew I could tighten a few places of my budget and give up some current indulgences to make this work. In addition, I had a little leftover Christmas bonus money that just found a solid investment.
See, I recognized what had happened; I had taken action towards my goal and Nature was giving me the opportunity to prove my determination and really go for it, to fully commit to my health and fitness, and I jumped on the chance.
I encourage all of you, if there is a goal that you have been thinking about, but haven’t committed to yet: ACT NOW! For there are only two choices: make progress or make excuses. Which one will you choose today?
