Alright, Enough Mr. Nice Guy…
Happy Tuesday…or at least it should be!
So I thought that opening up and allowing some of my readers, followers and fellow fitness associates would grab the reins for a new adventure and give me content and topics that they felt were important. Well, to my dismay, I received zero submissions. ZERO…kinda surprising to me considering that all that was required was a topic. In a way, I’m glad that there were zero submissions. Why you ask? Well let me tell you…
That mental hard-wiring in us that allows fear, self-doubt and just a lack of ambition to dominate and control us is very evident in your actions. Think of it this way: Would the world need dieticians if everybody ate the way they were supposed to and fitness professionals if you kept yourself in tip-top condition? Obviously not but since we are in great need and demand it proves yet again that many in the world and especially in Jacksonville are still sleepwalking! Think I’m kidding huh? Let me give you a statistic that demonstrates what I am speaking of.
In 2009, Jacksonville Florida was ranked 8th among the countries fattest cities. That is not the top ten you want to be proud of! The sleepwalking has to stop. Take action on your health and fitness. As fitness professionals we have a duty to give you all of the tools and support you need to accomplish and achieve. Your intensity and desire must not only match ours but it should exceed our expectation. A fitness coach should never want more out of you than you want for yourself.
I am a really open and understanding kind of guy, even when it comes to fitness and eating. I realize that it is easy to fall off the horse and get lost in the shuffle of fast foods, partying and bad snack decisions. All can be forgiven if you remember what your goals are, focus and commit yourself to not be side-tracked and realize that goal. One cheat day a month will give you something to look forward to…make that day count. Bust your ass for the month and reward yourself for a day. Make those permanent life changes for your health and fitness and be prepared for your body and mind to give you something that you would not otherwise have at its optimum: Peace of Mind and Satisfaction.
I will leave you with a quote from one of my all time favorite movies, Dune. This is a reminder that all that you see and do each day is a shell of who you can be and ultimately should become. Do not flee from yourself any longer! Break the cycle of self-sabotage and dedicate to real meaningful change in your life!
“I’ll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.” – Duke Leto Atreides
Dune, 1984 film by David Lynch based on the 1965 Frank Herbert novel.
Have a great week and remember what I told you! Change is Good!
