What comes to mind when you hear the word, SELFISH?
I know… I get it, I get it! 99 percent of the time it’s considered a terrible word. We all know that friend or family member who always puts their best interests in front of everyone else’s. But, believe it or not, that one percent of the time when it comes to your health, it’s extremely important to be selfish! If you’re not going to take care of yourself, nobody else will. If you’re not willing to invest in you, it’s going to be an uphill battle to reach optimum results when it matters most.
By now you may be thinking…
“I just don’t have the time.”
“What are you crazy! I have kids to take care of!”
“Who’s got the energy for this?”
Our brains tell us… I don’t have time.
The fact is you do have time! We know there are 24 hours in a day. That means we all have the same 86,400 seconds each day. Think about it. All you need is 3600 seconds each day to take care of your health. It’s the only way to GET BETTER NOW.
Our brains tell us… I have to think of my family first. I couldn’t possibly dedicate myself to fitness when they’re my responsibility.
The fact is you’re only good to your family if you’re in good health.
Our brains tell us… I’m too tired and can’t find the energy!
The fact is your body feels tired due to lack of exercise and your energy level will only continue dropping That will affect your family, your job and your friends. Let’s remember that change starts on the inside before we see it on the outside!
And that’s why what’s most important starts with you! Without our health, the list of all that truly matters will be our wish list and definitely not our reality.
At this point, I’m guessing some of you are thinking…This sounds like a good idea but not right now, maybe someday. If we look at any calendar, there are 7 days in the week and Someday definitely isn’t one of them!
