The economy is in the news all the time. Stimulus this, stimulus that…Spending millions, billion and trillions…
Well I want to stimulate something else…your mind.
Despite the financial “crisis” that is going on now, we still realize the importance of investing our money for the future.
Successful investors are consistent – riding out the daily fluctuations and adding to their accounts on a regular basis. They understand that nothing is gained by sitting on the sidelines, but by wisely and consistently adding to their investment. Great fortunes were and still are made this way.
It is no different with the investment you make in your health. The correct action consistently applied is the key to your health as much (if not more) than your wealth.
Sure there are going to be ups and downs. Nobody is at the top of their game all the time.
But you are just kidding yourself if you think that you can miss workouts, eat junk half the time, and stay up until midnight watching the idiot box and reach your goals.
Why do you expect something for nothing?
I want you to think about why you train, why you exercise, and if you are in this category – why you come to bootcamp.
Isn’t taking action investing in the future of your health?
After all, what difference does it make how much money you have if you aren’t healthy enough, or even around, to enjoy it?
Look, getting old isn’t for sissies.
You have a couple choices – you can sit on your butt and let your body waste away, or you can start fighting back now so you have a solid foundation for great health when you get into your 60’s, 70’s and beyond.
I am at the age where you really start to realize how short and fragile life is. It seems not a day goes by when my friends and peers are telling me that one of their loved ones is sick, or in the hospital.
You know what’s sad?
Many of the reasons they are sick are behavior related, like diabetes and heart disease, which in most cases could have been prevented with diet and exercise.
It’s just stupid!
Let me tell you about Dan.
We had an absolute butt kicking training session last Friday. Very challenging. And I watched a 52 year old man (Dan) smoke the rest of his class – who were up to 35 years his junior.
It got me to thinking – Dan has been training with us since May of 2008, and besides a week of vacation he took with his family, has missed maybe two sessions. He has made great strides in his nutrition habits, works hard every time he shows up, and has lost a boatload of weight.
In short – He Makes It Happen!
Dan is doing what it takes now to increase his chances for lifelong health.
It’s not just about living long, but living well.
So what about you?
Are you going to let life pass you by?
Are you going to wake up another 10 years older and still be the same person you are today?
Are you going to be lying in that hospital bed kicking yourself because you know it didn’t have to be this way?
Are you going to finally stop making excuses and do what it takes to show up every day?
Some of you will, but many will not.
Will this be the day that you once and for all determine that you will do what it takes?
Time Will Tell…
It Always Does…
Now Make It Happen!
