“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J. Marine
Greetings Family & Friends,
Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday. It started out slow for me but I’m like 3-4 hrs ahead of what I usually do on Monday to Friday. Hence, work and Trevor’s school has a role to play in that but I started my first workout around 1 pm so that is usually the time when I workout or recover from work. I’m continuing to grow and develop not only from my exercises but from how I do things and the most important part of this is doing the most with each 24 hours that is given. This isn’t only about losing weight and/or getting healthier but also a lifestyle change. It is about how you do things and re-wiring yourself for these changes that will be coming. Think of it as a new makeover that sticks. Not one that lasts for a day or two but something you can carry over from here on out. That is what this program has done for me this year. It opened a lot of doors that I don’t usually do because of my energy level and fitness.
It is true what you feed yourself. If you think you can’t do it then that is true. If you think you can do it then that is also true. Only your beliefs can shape your future. If you don’t like where you are now in life then you have a decision to make. Are your current beliefs helping you or holding you back? Are you doing much in your development and taking action to implement your development. It isn’t enough to read or listen to new information on what you want to achieve but to also implement it. Your current situation shouldn’t be your reason to not take the first step. It should be your motivation to take the first step. It will be challenging and you will experience failures on your journey but know this; failures are your friends and not your foes. They are there to teach you and remind you to push even harder and wiser. Once you overcome your challenges and failures then they become your new benchmark in life and provide a newer meaning in your life.
Don’t be afraid to start something new. You don’t need to know everything in whatever you want to do. That will be learn during the journey. You just need to take that first step and find a coach or mentor that has been there and help guide you through the challenges. They aren’t there to do the challenge for you but mostly that voice that will help push you through your thoughts and beliefs. They’ve seen the other side of overcoming challenges and they are there to welcome you once to the few that reach that success. Everyday is a new day to learn and push yourself further in your growth and development. If you are happy in life, you won’t be experiencing what you are experiencing now without the sacrifices made by you yesterday. So thank yourself daily and have that passion to make tomorrow even more amazing and meaningful!
