What I’m about to say might “jolt you” and go through you like a LIGHTNING bolt in the dark of night, so pay attention, and listen up.
Those that are easily offended may want to skip past this note, although to be frank THOSE are the EXACT SAME people that need to hear this.
And here it is – in a a nutshell – the reason most people don’t achieve whatever goals it is that they have set for themselves – is because they are either consciously or subconsciously (and it’s usually a combination of both, although most people don’t understand this) setting themselves up for FAILURE.
How do they do this?
Well – in a word – EXCUSES.
People have more time to make excuses and complain than to simply get in a 8 minute workout, for instance.
“I’m too busy”. (busy doing nothing, or watching T.V. or moaning about something in life).
Don’t believe me? Start a “complaining session” online, and see how quickly it goes viral. Other hand, start a productive “lets do something about it” discussion, and see how most of the people fly out of the “room” right off the bat.
“I don’t have the money to buy your book”. “I don’t have the cash right now, but I’ll have it later”.
Amazingly enough, these are the same folks that see nothing wrong with plopping down big bucks for gyms and fancy “shmancy” equipment that quite frankly is better off in the trash heap than it is in the gym – but then again, given the parodies that most “gyms” are these days …
“I don’t have the time”. “It’s too difficult”. “I’ve got a family”. And so forth.
The excuses pour forth like water from a spigot – and amazingly enough most folks dont bother to consider the fact that they’ve be better served trying to figure out how to get towards their goal rather than COMPLAINING and making excuses as to why they can’t get there!
Sounds elementary, my dear Watson? Well, it is, but the elementary seems to be what is consciously ignored by the vast majority of folks out there!
Now, granted, we’re all human and ’tis easy to “cry on a shoulder” when things get tough, and truth be told there is nothing wrong with doing that occasionally assuming you GET RIGHT BACK UP – BRUSH YOURSELF OFF – and GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF LIVING!!!!!
That’s right – the business of living – and the reason I say that is because that is exactly what life IS!
You get what you put into it – and again, the reason most people do not succeed at whatever endeavor they wish to succeed at is because the vast majority of people are content to wallow in a sea of mediocrity.
And that, my dear reader, is precisely why I created the 0 EXCUSES Fitness program (and books, videos etc).
In terms of fitness, what does this mean?
It means you stop whining about having no energy. Do the exercise – the VERY DAMN exerciseI advocate – and you’ll have energy levels that are off the charts. Literally.
It means you stop complaining about “it not being free”. Nothing in life ever is free, especially the GOOD stuff.
It means you – most importantly – STOP MAKING EXCUSES – SET goals – and DO.
I quoted Emerson once before, and I’ll quote him again.
“Do the thing, and you shall the power”.
Click over to 0 Excuses Fitness PAGE right here, my friend, and tap that little “Buy” button you see at the bottom.
Just do. Don’t question. That ONE decision will do more to change your fitness levels than anything else you’ve EVER done fitness wise, and I make NO BONES about saying that.
And if you’re still on the fence?
Well, the Chinese have a saying which goes somewhat like “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink”.
I can’t force you to click on over – but I sure can ADVISE you.
The rest, my friend, is up to YOU.
