The most valuable resource we have is time. The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is their understanding of this resource. You and Bill Gates both have the same number of hours in a day. Mark Zuckerberg has the same number of hours that I do in my week.
You have goals. We all do. You also have bills to pay, children to take care of, work to finish, reports to write, grass to cut, laundry to wash, dogs to walk, meals to eat, and your favorite shows to watch. When are you going to workout? You don’t have time?! We all have hundreds of tasks and to do’s to get through everyday. Its a matter of prioritizing. Basically, you don’t have to workout and take care of yourself. You don’t have to feel good. You don’t have to be healthy. Its a choice.
You have to make time. You need to cut out the excuses first. When you say you don’t have time, you are accepting being a victim. Being a victim means that its not your fault. Yes, it might not be in your control that you have to stay late when your boss asks you to. But, did your boss ask you to stay late everyday for the last 30 years? Is it your boss’s fault that you don’t make time for the gym?
When you first sit down and go over your goals, are they really your goals? Or are they just something you are interested in? Making goals is serious business. You are making a commitment to yourself that you need to accomplish something!
Cut the bullshit out of your life. Stop derailing your progress because you have things to do. No matter who you are, there is always someone else who has it harder, who is getting it done. Your goals and commitment with yourself should not be negotiable.
Lets look at a person who wants to make some changes in their life. They need to start training because they need to lose some weight, and feel better about themselves. They want this more than anything. They also work 8am to 5pm. When they get home they have to get the kids dinner, clean the house up, and run some errands all before 9pm when they sit down to watch their weekly show. Seems pretty impossible to get 3-4 days in at the gym. Guess what, life doesn’t care about your goals. The idea that you have no time is an illusion. You need to make time. You need to cut the TV off and get your ass to bed and wake up at 4:30am to get to the gym at 5am.
We seem to make time for all the things that don’t even matter but we can’t seem to make time for the things that do matter. If this is something that you can relate to, please take a moment to reflect on the fact that you are not special, we all have time. 24 hours to be exact. The difference is what we do with that time. Don’t let time and victimhood be the reason you can’t succeed. Its an illusion.
