How bad do you want to be healthy?
Do you think about it when deciding what you will eat this week?
Do you think about it enough to schedule your exercise?
Do you think about it to research healthy living websites?
Do you think about it when you think about what your kids will become?
A healthy lifestyle doesn’t just happen. It takes time, it takes commitment, and it takes energy. You can have the life that you want, however it will never be easy. It will take work, and it will not get easier as time goes on. Being healthy is a commitment to a life that you dream of, and a letting go of the life that you have.
The US Olympic trials have now been broadcasting all over television. No matter what sport you are watching, you see the same committed, focused, muscular bodies working toward their goal…the chance to win a medal. It makes one think, “What’s my one big goal?”.
That question had to come into everyone of these athletes competing. It all started with that question. Ultimately, the answer had to be, “to win a medal”. The details to get there were then set in motion.
So I ask you, what is your big goal? If you had to pick just one big goal, what would it be? If you really wanted this big goal, what would you need to do to make sure you could reach this goal? What would you eliminate/sacrifice to get that goal?
If the sacrifice isn’t worth the goal, then your goal isn’t big enough to you.
