OK, so you WANT it, now what will you need to do to get it? Or more succinctly what will you need to give up to have it all?!
Initially, fueling your new want will require sacrifice. You’re going to need to find some things, be it money, time, motivation, or just plain will. Redirecting resources will require some form of sacrifice.
I don’t care who you are or how busy you are, or how much money you don’t have, how many demands are put on you day in and day out. If you are unable to make sacrifices, you don’t WANT it, you just want it.
WANT – I’m not referring to the latest 3-D micro-thin flat panel LED HD Blu-Ray blah blah blah, or the Picaso you just found for sale by some second year art student on craigslist(yes, that’s real…).
I’m talking about the WANT that can save your life. The WANT that can add quality years to your life. The WANT that can make you stronger, better. Able.
The WANT that allows you to take control of your life and do with it as you see fit!
For that you may need to sacrifice.
The funny thing is that most of the “sacrifices” that you make initially you’ll eventually realize aren’t really sacrifices at all, just things you give up, that you didn’t need in the first place, to pursue a fit and healthy lifestyle! I know from experience, I went through the same changes when I took control of my life. I “sacrificed” TV time, video game time, sweets, processed foods, etc. I found ways to be more productive with my time and my fitness lifestyle became a part of my life, not an addition to, but an integral part of my life, a part of my life I am now unwilling to sacrifice for anything.
I know what you’re thinking and No, I am not advocating selling all your worldly possessions and becoming a monk(not that there’s anything wrong with that… it might be cool to be a Kung-Fu Monk, then I could go all Shaolin on your ass when you tell me you can’t do it!) Hmmm, Do I see some sacrifices in my future?!
