You want fitness and good health.
But you really want the end result, not the journey.
The journey is is hard and takes a lot of time.
That’s just the BS the goo-roos throw at you to get your attention.
That shyt ain’t working. In your gut (is that a pun), you know it’s gonna take work. And time. And commitment.
Maybe you need an accountability partner. The X-spurts all agree an accountability partner is a great idea. Get someone to feel the pain with you.
Is that what you need?
Nah. I mean, it’s OK to have a workout partner. But they aren’t going to do the work for you.
And in the end, here is a truth you must understand:
Accountability partners don’t make you do something you don’t want to do. The reason you’re not motivated is you lack belief. You don’t really believe you can make it happen.
You want it to happen but years of disappointment have convinced you, it’s probably not going to happen.
You simply cannot force yourself to do something you don’t believe in.
It works like this:
So you kinda have a conundrum. How do you start to believe when your life experience has convinced you to not believe?
Logic. Rational thought. Things that make sense.
This is why you scour the internet looking for solutions. And it’s why I write these blog posts and send emails.
I want you to see a solution that makes sense to you and gives you hope. Then you can believe in it.
In yourself. In what you’re doing.
You can get what you want. You can acquire the physique, good health, energy and fun-loving life you desire.
Just get started on the right path.
You know the old saying about a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step.
Take your first step.
Because your body is a machine honed to perfection by 2 million years of evolution.
And it’s collision with modern life has created a catastrophe of ill-health. You can turn it around though. You can reprogram your genes to express good health instead of ill health.
And once you start to see results, you’ll be motivated to continue to keep making progress.
You just have to believe first.
And then get started.
