E Is For Execution

Finish What You Start Or Just Get Started!
With so many distractions in life: job, social commitments, reality TV, the internet, your obsession with your mobile device, how can you ever get anything done? How long is your list of things you "should" be doing? And how long are you going to wait before you get those "should's" accomplished? I recently saw a quote that said "Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments". So, you know what your goals are and you know how to get them done but you keep letting things get in the way. Everything in your life has a priority, whether low or high. At some point, you have to look at all those things you "should" be doing for yourself and make them happen. Realign your priorities and stop making excuses for what you aren't making legitimate time for. Chances are, you're letting things creep in that are sucking the life out of you! Once you've recognized what those virtual leeches are, it's time to execute a plan for the things that can actually benefit your life. Ready to start or to finish what needs to be completed? Now's the time!

D Is For Dedication

Do You Have What It Takes?
What are you really good at? Did it come to you naturally or did it take a lot of hard work to achieve it? Ask anyone who's known me long enough and they'll tell you: growing up, I was far from an athlete. Fitness was something I drifted into and personal training was another endeavor that I took for granted until the passion developed. When the fire started, there was no turning back for me. How about you? What drives you? More importantly, what will it take for you to get where you want to be? When you accept the fact that your life will always be busy, chaotic, unpredictable and work against you in more ways than one, how will show your dedication to get what you want? Your health and fitness goals are lifelong journeys, not mini-vacations. You'll be tested constantly to stay on the path and plenty of obstacles will be placed before you to make it seem like you'll never accomplish what you want for yourself. These challenges are what make the truly dedicated thrive!
