You Have To Work To Get Results

We've all heard people complain about not losing weight, but they aren't doing anything to lose weight. It doesn't make sense. Extra fat doesn't come off our bodies for no reason. Muscles don't get bigger by sitting on the couch.

We've all heard people talk about wanting to write a book, but haven't. The only way you'll write a book is to actually sit down and write it, a page at a time. Just reading a book about writing won't get a book written, but it can help you get started.

If you want results, you need to work for them. Once you start getting results, the work can become easier because you see the reward. 

It's inspiring to see someone actually going to the gym or eating healthy and losing weight while gaining muscle. It's inspiring to read the first draft of a friend's book they wrote.

It is inspiring to want to follow their footsteps, but you need to make sure you're ready to commit to the goal. If you're ready, then you will do the work necessary and get the wonderful results. You'll be the inspiration for others to achieve their goals.

There are many things I would like to do sometime, but many of them require a lot of hard work. I've been learning that I need to figure out which ones I want to do more than the rest, which are the most important and meaningful to me. 

Sometimes the only way to figure it out is to give it a try. If you love it, than go for gold. If you don't, it's okay, try something else. People often see this as being a quitter, but if your heart isn't in it, you won't succeed. It's better to cut your losses and try something new. Often times you can keep it as a hobby but pursue a stronger passion as well.

I'm slowly weeding down my list, putting things on the some day list verses the right now list. I have a goal in mind, and I'm working slowly towards it. If I want to do it well, I need to do it the right way.


  1. I love this! Especially with the new year and new goals, sometimes the hardest part is to just begin, but that's what will make the end result so much better. Thanks for sharing

    1. Getting going can be really hard, but it puts you on a good path. Good luck with your goals!
