Wise man once said, “Journey of a thousand miles, starts with a single step.” Its true.
You’ll never know what you are truly capable of if you don’t even try. Many people are already defeated at the thought of doing some exercise after a long days work. If somewhere along the way you’ve started, congratulations.
For those who haven’t, its never too late to start. If you want real change in your life, you have to be the one that spearheads that change.
Announce it to the world
Tell your friends, family, loved ones about it. Seek support through them, & ask them to respect your decisions. A good way to keep the people around you updated is through social media. The “Likes” & “Favourites” could be a good positive reinforcement that could help keep that drive going.
But remember not to rely on it too much, because you are not in it for the instant gratification; you are in it for the long haul.
Treat your workouts as appointments you make, only this time it is with yourself. Its rude to be late or not show up once you’ve made an appointment. However, once in a while, its okay to surprise that special someone with a impromptu visit, i.e. if you feel spontaneous, just change & head out of the door as quick as possible.
Dare to dream.
Along the way people will tell you that you can’t do it. But listen,
“Don’t ever let somebody tell you… you can’t do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.” – Pursuit of Happyness
This can apply to any aspect of your life. So you’ve laid out a plan, time to stick to it. Its gonna get tough, but with perseverance and determination, anything is possible. Results don’t come overnight, it might take weeks, months, if not years. You might fall along the way, its okay, as long as you get back up again. Just keep going.
Its never too late to start, take that single step today, to a better you.
