Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.
It’s not easy to go against the crowd.
If they’re eating donuts for breakfast and talking about “someday” getting back in shape, while you’re heading to the gym, your actions will shine a light on their inaction.
That gets uncomfortable for both of you eventually.
You see, misery really does love company.
The flipside is that health loves company too. Check the photo below. Those folks are up and doing something about fitness.
Here’s the truth about self-discipline
Nobody wants to be lazy, but few will keep a commitment to exercise daily. It’s easy to find someone to eat pizza with you, but difficult to come up with a workout partner who’ll meet you at the gym early every morning.
Nobody wants to be overweight, but few will discipline themselves – day after day and year after year – to eat for strength instead of pleasure. It’s easier to eat more than to eat right.
The truth is each person chooses which path to walk: doing it today or doing it someday. When that reality sinks in, you’ll understand the meaning of the saying “Someday never comes.”
Getting and staying healthy isn’t something you can do once and check off your list. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a habit … and what you do today will affect all your tomorrows.
So … what WILL you do today?
Will you do what others won’t do, so you can have what they can’t have?
Come on down to the gym. Let’s talk about it.
Together, we can do a whole lot more than either of us can do alone.
