Do you want to be successful? Do you want to be rich? Do you want to be fit and healthy with that body so well toned that you would leave people in awe when they see it.

Who doesn’t?

But why are you still drinking that Coke in your hand or stuffing yourself with junk food and wasting your time before the TV when you should really get yourself off the couch to get some serious work done. You knew that exercising is good for you, upgrading your skills will earn you better money or start a successful business will get you the wealth that you could enjoy and still you are procrastinating about doing the necessary things.

We can conclude from here that the biggest opponent in your life is you!

Human are creatures of comfort and habit and we naturally avoid pain and move towards pleasure. We find that eating the chocolate is pleasurable rather then lifting weights. We want to be wealthy but feel that the re run program on the TV is more interesting then working on your skills.

Things like exercising and upgrading your skills are important but human sometimes find that the journey towards success is not enjoyable. They dream about results but they hate the specific details and grueling work that they need to do in order to achieve success.

If you are having a junk food diet and watch the TV for 8 hours a day and one day I tell you to start to work out. Maybe you can tell me,” But I don’t like to exercise.” So what if you don’t like to exercise? Do you like to have a heart attack? No way!

We tend to make drastic changes when we are facing a serious problem. Imagine if you are diagnosed with blocked arteries in your heart, will you still stuff yourself with burgers and fries? If you are a facing bankruptcy, will you still splurge $1000 a night on fine dining? I bet there will be a 180 degrees change from you. Maybe you will start to convert into a raw vegan and start exercising everyday and bargain in a wet market for a discount of 50 cents to buy groceries to cook at home.

Drastic change isn’t it?

What do we learn from the above examples? We live by Choice. You choose to be a better you or you choose to fail in your life. Whatever the results, it happens from what you choose in your daily activities.

“The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice”

George Eliot

One more inspiring quote for you.

“If you limit your choices to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect from what you truly want, and all that left is a compromise”

Robert Fritz

Think big and dream big. Don’t ever self doubt when you never even try. Hope this article will help inspire you to be a better you.

If you need help on time management and making the best out of the day. I greatly recommend this book, First Thing First by Stephen R.Covey. You can get it here for only $10.88.

To your success,
