Try Not To Complain

Last Week In Houston At A Red Light
Last Week In Houston At A Red Light

What good does complaining do? Does it make the complainer shine like a beacon of hope for others? Does it inspire people to give their absolute best?

You know, sometimes it might. Complaints can put things in the spotlight that may otherwise get swept under the rug. But it’s rare that complaining has a positive outcome.

Mostly, it just sounds like an excuse and a defense mechanism to shroud our fear of success.

Haven’t run in 7 days. Haven’t been to the gym in six. Pathetic.

Except for one thing. I get the opportunity to do them both. Today. How glorious is that? The woman in the photo perhaps can only dream of missing a week of exercise.

Funny Sad, Sad Funny

Not Everything Will Taste Like Chocolate

Yesterday’s health care video was very funny, which is really sad.

It’s really sad because it’s so true.

When you look around at the people you know who get decent results from their diet and exercise, you know what their secret is?

You don’t, do you?

It’s painful to admit.

But they have learned to dramatically reduce the number of excuses they are willing to accept.

They don’t eliminate every excuse, but they certainly alleviate the vast majority of excuses.

You can too.

But first, you’ll have to eliminate the excuse that you can’t alleviate the excuses.

It may even require getting down on bended knee and surrendering the past, so that you can begin a new journey.

You Won’t Hear It From Me

It's A Long List
It's A Long List

My list of pathetic excuses?

Sure, it’s a long list.

Just like yours.

Lists can be good.

Lists can be bad.

Shed.

Shed your list of pathetic excuses.

It’s the only antidote for mediocrity.

Find Your Excuse

Be Inspired, Have Fun, Stay Healthy
Be Inspired, Have Fun, Stay Healthy

You know it and I know it.  Don’t we?  It’s no secret.

The hardest thing to do when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, is to continue our motivation for an entire lifetime.

So, here’s our number one excuse: Life is insanely busy and difficult.

Use this “blinding flash of the obvious” to your advantage.  This is extraordinarily powerful.  But only if you are willing to admit it and use it to overcome what most never do.

One of the best ways to overcome excuses is to find an “excuse” to get involved. And your “excuse” may change throughout your lifetime. Changing is not failure.  Quitting is failure.

Track and Field is what’s doing it for me. Track and Field is the number one participatory sport in the United States public school systems. Monkeys were made to climb. Fish to swim. Birds to fly.  Humans to walk and run.

Today through March 6, in Kamloops, British Columbia, the world’s best Master’s Track and Field Athletes will gather to represent their Countries in the “Senior” Olympics.

It was a goal to be there this year. Injuries have prevented that from happening.  But indomitable will has kept me running and hoping for the USATF Master’s Track and Field National Championships this summer.

And you?
