Fitness Motivation: You Have More Control Than You Think

You Shape You. Not your past, not your friends, not your circumstance. 

How often do we play the victim? Whether we struggle with our weight or our finances, most of the time our circumstance is a result of poor decisions. We struggle with our weight, because we lack discipline. We can make excuses until we’re blue in the face, but ultimately, no excuse is of any real value. We are in debt to our eyeballs because we live past our means. We struggle with relationships because we are selfish and we treat people poorly – especially the ones we love most. Even the best of us, the good-hearted, mess up. Most of the time, we do get what we deserve to a certain extent.

Some of history’s “greats” had everything going against them.

Sure, there are many things that happen to us that are not fair. Cancer is not fair. Losing a job may not be fair. Life often is unfair – BUT, that does not justify quitting or not trying. We fight. We grow. We improve. We learn. We inspire. We conquer.

If you’ve been unhappy with your weight, your finances, your marriage, your life…Don’t fall for the “woe is me” downward spiral. Fight for what you want. Fight to become who God intended you to be. Don’t always do what’s easy. Do what’s RIGHT. Don’t settle. Don’t make excuses. And never give up – because it will always be worth it. No regrets!
