Well, tomorrow is “the big day.” The physique transformation contest I have entered officially kicks off tomorrow, and you should understand that I have STARTED this thing every year for at least the last 3. I make it a few weeks at most, and then I throw in the towel. I just haven’t had the discipline. I also think I’m afraid to fail, so I somehow think it’s easier not to really try (I know that makes NO sense).
But, this year HAS to be different. I am going on record here, that I’m ALL IN from January 11 through April 3. You all are my witnesses. And my support system!
Discipline, that’s such a hard thing. I talk such a good game (so this time I’m not talking much about this to anyone but my readers), and I am a great planner (man, you should SEE my planners!!!). As I have discussed before, I fall short on the execution part. Where does discipline come from? How do some people have vast amounts of it, while others (me) have none? My former trainer and very good friend told me more than once “You have the body you’re willing to work for.” And so there it is.
I know soooo many athletes who seem to have no trouble with discipline (though I’m sure they do). They show up, they work. I talk about doing those things. I am sure they don’t always feel like working, training, eating to fuel their performance…. Yet they DO all the things. Whatever it takes. So, I’m on a quest! Not only to see what it feels like to be an “AFTER” but to figure out what’s behind this big word “DISCIPLINE.”
Whatever it is you’ve set your mind to do, whatever goal you have, let’s finally figure out how to knock it out of the park!
The path to success is to take massive, determined action.
