How Bad do you want it?

How Bad do you want it?

"What we accomplish in life is based less on what we want and more on how much we want it." - John Maxwell

How bad do you want to change your situation?  Do you want to lower your blood pressure?  Do you want to drop 100, 50 or even 10 pounds?  How bad?  Bad enough to make the changes necessary to see it come to pass or just enough to want it and talk about it.  I meet with folks daily that sincerely want to change their bodies and they are certain of exactly what they want.  They show me pictures, they show me articles, but none of that matters if they don't have the want inside them.

Any change you make to your health will take effort and consistent choices. 

You have to want it badly in order to come to agreement with yourself that you will continually make wise choices.  Someone who tells me they want to change their health and yet spends the weekend drinking and eating out of control is someone who knows what they want, but not someone who wants it bad enough to get it.

Talk is cheap folks.  We have one life we’ve been given.  These choices not only affect you, but all of the folks around you.  When you don't take care of yourself, your family suffers.  They work around your limitations, your irritability, and your lack of energy.  When you don't take care of yourself your coworkers are affected by your actions.  They work around your lack of concentration and mental clarity.  Each of us has a center of influence.  So many folks are watching you.  Give them something to see.  Show them something they can repeat.  Make wise choices today with your food, your exercise and most importantly your thinking.  Start thinking yourself into a better place by the words you speak outwardly and inwardly.

Self destructive talk only furthers your mental imbalances and pushes you farther and farther away from the goal of healthy living. 

"You can't help people become winners unless they want to win.  Champions become champions from within, not from without."  -John Maxwell
When I meet a new person I always think "I can help them".  No matter what the circumstance.  If I don't have an answer, I know people who do.  I have the drive big enough for both of us in the beginning.  Eventually the client receives that energy from me and has the drive on their own.  I love this part.  This is the part I jump out of bed for.  I love watching this transformation take place.  It has nothing to do with what they have on the outside.  It has everything to do with what they have on the inside.  When they first come to me they had enough drive to get them through the door, but it’s my job to pull that inner champion out of them.  It’s my job to make them a winner.  Yes I’ve trained several athletes of all ages, all sizes in several types of sports.  There is nothing better than seeing them win and walk away with a trophy. 

The only thing that tops that is when I see a person flip the switch. 

Make the decision that they want to live a different life.  A life of health, which is consistent and becomes a lifestyle that is not changed or swayed by external influences.  Then the very best is when they start changing their thinking and speaking.  They start speaking words of victory and not defeat.

I love what I do.  It’s a dream come true to live a life in which I am paid to change lives.  I make winners, not just from the outside but from the inside as well.  Are you a winner?

Decide today that you will do what it takes to change your life.

Hire someone if you can.  If not, start by preparing your food, and stick with it!  Don't have chocolate at the end of the day and bread with every meal.  Start with regular exercise daily.  Thirty minutes a day is a great place to start and then build from there.  Last but most certainly not least, find time daily to build yourself up mentally.  Read words of faith, power and study folks of proven success and determination.  Surround yourself around victorious people, not defeated, negative and gossiping folks.  Live your life with a purpose with every moment you have.  Make the change today.  Wake up tomorrow and decide you want it bad enough and become a winner.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for my Sweet Joli Girl.  She lost her battle with bone cancer this week.  My best friend, right through it all.  She never left my side.  The best dog a girl could ask for.
