Twenty years ago, I did not aspect to accomplish what I have in fitness world. And I surely didn't dream about writing best selling books. However, two things I did know; first by exercising and eating better allowed me to be involved in something much greater than me. And second, I was not afraid to ask for help and support.
We live in a world filled with pride, denial and laziness. It's just that simple. Your success in weight loss, sports conditioning or general fitness comes down to one simple thing, asking for help.
Our country use to be goal oriented. People use to take pride (good pride) in fact that they were in a process of accomplishing something. Today, most want something for nothing. If that were not case, America would not be fattest nation on earth and getting larger every day.
Very soon each one of you will either choose or be forced to take some personal responsibility in your health and fitness levels. Forced? Yes! The truth is, way things look, each one of you will either face music on your terms or some life changing circumstance is going to come your way that will force you to take a good long look at your health. Scare tactic, you bet cha!
So what do you do? You, get a medical check up if necessary and just start moving.
With all fitness and diet programs out there, you would think people in our country would be getting in better shape. We're not. Why? All of us are confused, frustrated and burdened down at contradictory of medicine and fitness for one reason, and other reasons involve issues we have already discussed. The key in motivating yourself to exercise is to keep your eye on big picture. If you don't, details will become a quicksand pit. The big picture is:
JUST MOVE IT!
So much money and time is spent on gimmicks and diet fads that only get used for a short time, with little or no results.
The big picture is about being realistic, not to have high expectations, but to focus on internal health issues, such as blood pressure, body fat, cholesterol levels and a quiet mind. The challenge is that you have grown accustomed to being motivated by instant gratification. It is more of a priority to look good rather than to have lower stress levels.
