2012.06.15 “Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory.” Ghandi

-Good health is an accomplishment. Your struggle depends on how unhealthy you are now.  Your decision to change is your beginning.  The struggle is ridding bad habits and forming good habits. The drudgery is sticking to your decision, working out or dieting.  Finally you will, over time accomplish good health, but it must be maintained. 

2012.06.14 “A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop.” Robert Hughes

-I can set up your room in the middle of this gym, but if you never lift a weight you’ll get any results.  Don’t just come to the gym to hang out or talk/text on your phone, get a intense short workout in then do that stuff afterwards. 

2012.06.13 “We will either find a way, or make one!” Hannibal

-That is shear determination!  Obstacles: Money, time, energy, transportation, work, family, etc… Rank your priorities to find out where fitness fits in.  If it’s too low on that list then there is your problem.  Rethink your goals. 

2012.06.12 “You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can.” Jimmy Carter

-Your belief in yourself is the key.  You can build this by accomplishing smaller goals, then you start to believe that you can accomplish the much larger goal.  Have faith in yourself, the only person you really can count on.

2012.06.11 “What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.” Alexander Graham Bell

-I call this White Hot Burning Desire.  If you feel like this towards a particular goal or cause, those before you have proved that no obstacle is bigger than your burning desire.  You will find a way or make one like Hannibal.
