How in shape or out of shape you are, is a result of your habits.
Life is so unpredictable. You never know what is going to happen in a single day. One positive or negative event can change the whole trajectory of your life. I feel it is these events that have a huge impact on the habits that are formed.
How we handle change determines a lot of things.
I know for myself, my life has changed over the last 3.5 years in huge ways. It was a combination of positive and negative experiences that have impacted my life.
Death and sickness of family members have really taken a toll on me physically and mentally. At 38, you never think that such horrible things will happen in life, but out of nowhere they just do. Life can be long and hard, but we must all roll with the punches. Life’s experiences can either break you or make you.
I started A.E.S. Fitness in 2011, and it has overall been a very positive experience. During this time I have been working around the clock…sometimes literally and it becomes very taxing.
My priorities changed during this time. My whole focus over this time was to get this business off the ground and make it successful. Every time I attempted to go to the gym, I always guilted myself into feeling like I shouldn’t be here working out. “I should be working on the business”. My heart just hasn’t been in it and I have fallen into Bad Habits. I went from working out 6 days a week and eating clean and healthy for years, to eating unhealthy food on the go and barely working out.
I will continue to give my all to this business, but my health shouldn’t suffer because I am working so hard. I need to make time and I know I can. The question is “Will I Make the Change”?
What makes a person make the changes, instead of talking about making the changes? Action is the key. Take action. Break your goal down into steps. Document what you need to do in order to achieve your goal. Don’t focus on the big goal. Breaking things down into little goals will make everything feel more manageable.
I am going to end this blog with this. NO ONE IS HOPELESS. We are all a product of how we Chose to live. We are the makers of our own destiny and we have the power to make Change.
I wish you all a Blessed and Peaceful 2015.
