Take Control of Your Health and Fitness

When is the last time you heard someone say, “Well, if you don’t have your health what do you have?” Can you relate to this sentiment? Can you take this sentiment to heart and embrace it? Maybe, for the rest of your life?

We all know and understand the idea that you can have all the money in the world; or, the perfect relationship; or, the perfect house – but, if you don’t have your health to go with it, then you may not be able to enjoy whatever it is that is so perfect. So, what’s the real message here? It’s simply to begin putting your health and fitness higher up on your list of priorities so that you don’t find yourself one day not able to enjoy what you have worked so hard your whole life for. And, by higher up on your list I mean very close to the top!

But, I can hear your objections now. I don’t have the time to do any more than what I am doing now. This obligation is more important. My boss won’t understand. My family needs me now. And, on and on. Look, you can give me all of the reasons in the world but you and I both know that your current situation is merely a manifestation of every decision that you have made up to this point, right? Even if you were not able to control certain things (e.g. disease that struck a relative, etc.) you still were not totally left with absolutely no control. So, your current situation, for the most part, is really just a result of past decisions that you have made. Well, if that is the case then don’t you think that you can begin to reverse your current situation by controlling your decisions going forward? Of course you can. You know it. And, I know it. No excuses.

Look at it like this peoples – you can give up control, but never responsibility for your life. It does not matter what is happening, who is in your life, or what you are going through – in the end, whether you choose to take the reins and take control of your life or not, you, and only you, are stuck with the consequences of your decisions. Period!

So, if you don’t want that future scenario to happen to you – do something about it! Talk to a trusted friend about it. Just don’t tell me you don’t have time. Make the time and do it now – take control of your health and fitness!

Look at taking control of your health and fitness as an investment of time and money. You see, health and fitness boils down to this – health is how you feel and fitness is how you perform. When you maximize your health and fitness you maximize how you feel and perform everyday. So, health and fitness is the basis for everything else you do in life. If you can prioritize now and get control of your health and fitness then once you do, you will be working on a totally different plane of energy, emotion, confidence, and self-esteem. And, when you start making decisions on this totally different plane you will truly be able to get everything you always wanted out of your life! Don’t think so? Try it!
