How Bad Do You Want It?!

            We make excuses.  All. The. Time.  We say we want to be fast, fit, or competitive, but for some reason we never get there.  It’s like if we wish hard enough, it’ll somehow just happen.  Yes, there are those who have been genetically blessed, where even when they slack off, they still excel and do well.  These people can be frustrating as well, because they often settle for what they can do with little work instead of pushing to find their true potential.
A little extra work with the added weight this year!
            Then there are the more common folk.  I’m calling you out.  No more excuses.  I get it.  Sometimes you get sick, sometimes your kids get sick, sometimes their naps just aren’t working out in your favor, but there’s a point at which you have to quit allowing everything to get in the way of your goal.  If you want to be fast, or to do well in something, then put in the time and work.  It is up to you.  If you are serious about your goals, then you’ll work towards them.  PUT IN THE WORK DAMMIT.  That’s what I really want to say.  It’s also what I need to say to myself at times.
Motivation may ebb and flow, but find ways to push through the low points.  Keep your goals in mind.  Be relentless.  Quit the excuses, and be ready to embrace the pain that it takes to become better.  Commit yourself.  It won’t be easy, but it will make reaching the goal so very rewarding.  No more procrastinating.  Now is the time.

“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.” – Jerry Rice
