“Could the will we lack, with reference to the neglect of our health, be an underline for self hate? Are we a society of insecure people who try to sedate our internal pain with material things so much that we don’t pay attention to our health until it’s way too late? Could it be that we see the external things as an extension of ourselves and those things become more important than the inner man? Were we taught the wrong set of values by the folks who believe in the only value they knew and were willing to die by? Could it be that we self sabotage in insidious ways daily? Could it be that we live our lives trying to avoid challenges and therefore as a society the more we think we know, the less we know?’
Most folks would agree that the hardest thing about an exercise routine is to start. We always use our current situation as a reason to reaffirm the reasons why we should not do the things we promise ourselves. However, the key is to fall in love with the process. In order to do that you must be ‘consistently consistent’.
Getting a great physique doesn’t only hinge on how hard or the number of hours you have worked out but the science, decisions and choices you make until you return to your next session, that is, how you eat, how you manage your stress and how you rest. If you make a decision to work out three days per week, the only thing that should stand in your way is if you’re dead, nothing else, period! Note, no one could ever master their life in one day but it’s possible to master one day at a time and keep doing that. The reason why most folks fail in their attempt to create a great physique rather than see it as a priority is because they view it as a task. I absolutely love this quote, “Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.”—Josh Billings.
Oftentimes, the excuse I hear is “I will start next week.” If you are too busy to take care of your own health, ask yourself, “Does it make sense taking care of anything else?” Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that making health sacrifices would make you live to be 100 years old, but what I do know for sure, is that it adds quality to your life and in my view, that is priceless. So when things get rough and it starts to burn and hurt don’t stop the routine you just started.
To keep your body in good health is a priority otherwise we won’t be able to keep our minds strong and clear. To enjoy the glow of good health you must exercise. We are living in a delusional world that somehow believes that you can buy good health. Stop it!
Remember, we are living in a world loaded with information that is at our fingertips so we should be able to be solving oriented. We should be able to save more lives and accomplish better health. Be consistent and remember that consistency breeds results.
