I was never the most gifted athlete, I was always the guy that figured out if the other guy is twice as talented than me, but I work twice as hard as him, I can even the playing field. I am fortunate a lot to have competed on a high level in my life, not because by any means was I gifted, but I worked my butt off. This is true in life as well as in sports.
Many people don’t start on a fitness program because they already envision it being to hard. Don’t join a gym because they see themselves quitting in a month. Don’t buy that tread mill because they already see it becoming a clothing rack.
It’s up to you, not your trainer, not your spouse, not your parents, not your kids…..YOU. Today is the day, as Apollo Creed said in Rocky 3 “There is no tomorrow!” Get started on your goals today. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
I think I may have just motivated myself. There is no telling what goal I may be chasing now.
keep your hands up,
