Starting from our childhood we are made to do stuff that we may not like, but our parent says that it is important for us. Growing up as well, we deliberately do things just because we are supposed to do them despite our dislike for it. For instance, when we are adults we have to pay our bills and do house chores not because we love to do it but because we have to do it. It is a way of life and in order to live a smooth life those things need to be done. The things that we like, some of them we may feel are unachievable but the point is that we should not stop trying. Not all of us can be Shakespeare, but that doesn’t mean we should stop writing.

We all want to be an athlete, but just because we think that it is all going to be too painful and it is all too unachievable, we don’t do anything. Sure, we cannot all be Olympic athletes, but that does not mean we stop taking care of our health. Training is an essential part of your life because it in one way charges your body and strengthens it for all the next day’s work. People get discouraged by thinking about the amount of effort they will have to put in and all the gym days they will have to manage so as a result they prefer sitting on the couch than making a move. People who are on the other side of the story have an entirely different view. They have gone through the process and faced all the hardships. Many time they have fallen, got injured and cried, but every time they managed to get back up. They never gave up even when the results were slow. They saw the chasm too, but the trained anyway.

This is the issue, and you need to end all your excuses. You need to stop thinking that anything which is uncomfortable is not worth doing. Getting out of your comfort zone for the only body you will ever have, is not a waste of time. Instead of just sitting and crying about the difficulty of it, you should look for your set of workouts and start trying it. Start with a normal walk or jog, do a few pushups or just a normal breathing exercise. This all is going to help you to get used to the idea of training, and your mind will be willing to do it. If you start working out tomorrow, will you become Rick Froning? I think not, but you will definitely be proud of yourself for a while. All the efforts will pay off one day, even if it is after a long time. A good health and strong body are the blessings in disguise and your greatest asset. Having it will only make you successful in all other areas of life and will build in you a positive energy all the time.
