This is not going to be an easy post to write but write it I must.
I love all things healthy. I love exercise, eating healthy and so on
but in the last couple of months I had lost the vision. I stopped
going to gym and I stopped eating healthy. I just stopped. I can give
all the excuses in the world but that is all they will ever be,
But that all changed last week when I started exercising again.
It was good to be back. On the day I started I saw a lady who
I exercise with.
Let me rephrase that, the lady I used to see every time I went
out to train. I would get up every morning
to exercise and I would see this lady go for a run. I have never
spoken to her in all of our exercising and we never crossed
paths. Anyway, on my first day of getting back, I saw her,
again. Like clock work she was about to go on her run……
At that moment a thought came to me;
And that is what makes her better than you.
That is why she will be fitter than you.
That is why she will win and achieve her goals.
Because she has stayed consistent!!
And I was like, “ouch”!!
She has been disciplined to keep up her routine on a daily
basis. When I do exercise I hit it hard, very hard but that
doesn’t matter because I am not consistent!
I haven’t stuck to it, haven’t done the things that need to be done
on a daily basis!
Isn’t that how life is though? The disciplined people, the people
who don’t give up, who push through no matter how painful
it is, those are the people who win.
A disciplined person will win over the undisciplined person
any day. The focused and diligent person can have anything
I was so challenged by her dedication and persistence!
I want to be disciplined. I can have all the
passion in the world but it will come to nothing if I am not
motivated, disciplined. I won’t get it right all the time but
I need to keep on pushing!
It was hard writing this. It’s never easy writing about
your own weaknesses but I know I have a chance. I can make a
decision to learn from her or choose to ignore what I saw.
I can change and AM changing! The person I am today can be
and will be different tomorrow. As long as the Holy Spirit is in me
I have a chance and so it is with you. There may be things you
don’t like about yourself but there is hope. Ask for God’s help.
The process is not easy but it’s worth it……
And that is how I was beaten by a girl! 🙂
