I'm going to start as soon as finals are over...

Those of us who fall into the trap of waiting for the right time. Pay attention. There's no such time. There are things we need to do and things we want to do. Life gets in the way and we tell ourselves and those around us that we will get to them.

There are a few people out there who have it. They just get shit done. But I'd be willing to bet they would tell you they have similar thoughts to you and I. Sometimes, they don't feel like doing things. They would much rather relax or stay in bed. That bed is SO COMFORTABLE!

But here is the SMALL difference between them and the rest of us. Success comes simply from doing the things you need to whether you feel like it or not. That's it.

Doing the things you need to whether or not you feel like it.

COMMIT: Staying loyal to what you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.

You want to do all these things but you're bitching about how hard it is? If you want to go on a camping trip, it's going to be some work getting all the supplies and materials all gathered. It'll take work to figure out where you're going, driving there, organizing, etc. Check the weather.

More often than not, the path we take is the one of least resistance.

"Man work is super crazy this week, there's no way I can work out."

"Dude, it's so rough with kids. I have no energy when I get home."

"Bro, my girlfriend is driving me crazy. I just wanna relax."

"Shit, after finals, I'm gonna get after it."

You ain't gon do shit!

You'll come with excuse after excuse. Next thing you know, it'll be 5 years later and you'll look and feel worse than before (you'll be at the same place if you're lucky).

If you had just stopped waiting for the right time and committed, you could have reached unimaginable heights. Do you have any idea what 5 years of training at 4 days a week will do to your physique and health? You'd look like a god.

But nah, you made bullshit ass excuses that you BELIEVED WITH YOUR SOUL.

And somehow, you always managed to find time for birthday parties, going out to the bars, taking vacations.

Hmm...funny how that works.

Here's one tip:

Stop hanging around the people you hang around currently. I'm sorry, just stop. If they're weekend activities consist of going out to bars, watching a lot of TV, eating crap food...well you're probably going to look and feel like a person who does those things.

Join an active community. Yoga, a gym, hiking, whatever. You will passively start making changes and you'll begin to make your health and body your highest priority. And why should it not be???? Give me one good reason. It affects EVERYTHING.
