Some of us value work more then others, some fitness/health, some family and some are caught in the cross roads. But there is one things that we all have in common, accountability.
Accountability is defined as taking responsibility for one's actions.
The key phrase above "one's actions". There is no we, he or she it comes down to you and only you.
Most of us are driven by goals that we set for ourselves. Whether it is to be a better person, a better parent, sibling, son, daughter, husband, wife or to be more successful at your job, focus more on your health or even to travel the world.
Life isn't easy, its a constant grind, there will always be ups but also many downs that we will come across. What will define us as an individual is how we deal with those ups and downs.
I found out a long time ago that if I had a goal in life, fitness or anything else I knew that if I didn't succeed the way I wanted to, it was not someone else's fault, it was mostly my own with the things I could control. It didn't mean that I gave up though, it meant that I took my lumps and tried again.
When I speak to people about goals in fitness all I can do is give them an understanding of what it will take, how difficult it will be and how they are the only one that can control their outcome. I can give them the tools but the work is on them.
Its about finding that inner strength, that one thing, that inspiration that will push you to the top and stay the course, while allowing yourself to look in the mirror and know that the person you see is the only one that controls the outcome of what you can and can not do.
Don't be scared to fail and fall flat on your face. The easy way out is to quit and make excuses. Remember you started your journey for a reason whatever it may be, accept it and realize that if it was easy everyone would do it.
Life is work no matter which way you spin it. Understand that the road may be tougher for you then it may be for someone else. In the end its still you against you!
Now put the excuses away, pick yourself up, fight for what you truly want and be accountable for your actions!!!!!!!
