If you want to succeed long term you are going to need to choose your hard.
Last week two ladies came to our gym to try a workout. A few days later one of the ladies came back to join. I asked the one that came back where her friend was. Her response was, “She said it was too hard.”
I literally almost burst into flames right then and there.
“It was too hard.”
Before I go any further I want to say something. I judge no one. I don’t hold decisions that people make against them. Someone isn’t a bad person if they don’t join our gym. I don’t expect anyone to join and I don’t think ill of those that don’t. I only share things like this in hope that I can help YOU to make a decision that will create positive change in your life.
I can’t help those that don’t want to be helped. I just hope that people decide that it is time to lower the walls and let me help them.

So back to the lady that thought her workout was too hard.
I was telling Teresa about the conversation yesterday in the car on the war to the gym. What follows is how I presented it to her.
If I were to talk to someone who is 100 or more pounds overweight and she is wanting to lose some weight I would ask these questions:
Question #1: Is it hard to be 100 pounds overweight? Are you happy to look in the mirror? Is it hard to look at yourself being so heavy? It is physically hard to get off the floor, keep up with your kids and walk around the mall or the super market?
I would think that it is hard to be overweight. I have never been overweight but I did break my leg once so I understand what it is like to struggle. I also had a serious heath challenge when I had asthma about 12 years ago. I have been there and it’s HARD. I can’t speak for anyone that is overweight but it must be freaking hard.
Question #2: Would your life be better and would life be easier if you lost the weight?
Of course this question is a leading question. Duh. If you are no longer 100+ pounds overweight there is no question that you will now have a better life and your days will be easier if you shed the excess fat.
Question #3: Is it going to be hard or easy to lose the weight?
Another leading question here but this is to make my point. If it were easy you would have done it a long time ago, right? It’s going to be hard. Just know that going in. It’s going to be hard so….
WHY ARE PEOPLE SO SHOCKED WHEN THEY FEEL SOME DISCOMFORT?
So these questions of course lead me to the aftermath of the first workout.
Was it hard? Well…yeah.
Are you sore? Well….yeah.
Did you expect that? Well…yeah.
Then why quit? Just choose your hard.
My message today is to YOU if you have some major results that you need. My message today is to those people that are sick and tired of being sick and tired. The process is hard and you will be uncomfortable. You will be sore, tired, broke, alone, intimidated, hurt, frustrated and it will be HARD but, if you keep going, you will be a better you and a more healthy and happy you.
The alternative is being sore, tired, broke, alone, intimidated, hurt, frustrated and it will be HARD…forever.
Choose your hard.
