Uncomfortable is No Excuse

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

I am sitting up late at night watching the movie, Talk to Me, the bio pic of Petey Green an ex-con disc jockey of the 1960s era. A great movie that I recommend everyone to check out. While watching it this movie and listening to the soul soundtrack it got to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and they depicted the riots of Washington,D.C. where he closes off air at 2AM and he closes with the quote at the top of this post. It got me to thinking.
People really hate to workout, they want to lose weight. They want to just wake up tomorrow and have what they THINK came natural for some other people with perfect circumstances and genetics… what not.
Well how about this, don’t work out… Don’t even think about working out. I want you to get up today and find out what it is that YOU, REALLY WANT.
Decide Right now to take a stand in 2010 and get up and go out about making things happen.

Decide that you are going to TRAIN for what every it is that you REALLY WANT and if losing as much weight as inhumanly possible is what you are training for then you better be sure of a few things, don’t just make some dumb goal, but make it a process and have a reason, a passion for what you are looking to do.

If it requires you to be UNCOMFORTABLE, so what. You want results be ready to get Uncomfortable and work hard, ready to sweat, and ready to dig deep in yourself to get the results that you want. It is UP To YOU to make that decision.
To Leave your your comfort zone and earn what is rightfully yours.
Until Next time.
