Time To Fight

We dream of being better.  We say we want it.  To be thinner, faster, stronger, better.  We imagine ourselves doing it, beating the best, taking the lead, winning.  We can see it, feel it.  Time and again we dream but never do anything different.  We do as we have been doing, week after week, going through the motions, hoping for a break through.  Is it time to make it happen?  Is it time to stop dreaming and fight for it.

Is it time to take a stand and start making those dreams come true?  Is it time to turn that desire into a need, an unfulfilled hunger?  Dreams are earned, they are bought with intensity and determination that you will not be stopped!  Is it true that if you give more you can achieve more?  Have you ever imagined that if you could put it all together; the diet, the exercise the right plan, then the magic would happen.  Isn't it time to find out what you are really made of?

It starts with a decision, not a try or a maybe someday but an, "I will not be denied my dream".  You have to mean it and commit.  You have to make some other decisions first, you have to decide you are worth it.  You have to know that you can be enough. Finally you have to make a decision that there will be no excuses only results.  Everyday will need to be a step forward, either training or resting and recharging your body and mind for the next assault on your dreams.

When we want it bad enough and make our decisions to go after it then we have to start doing everything different than we did before.  Fighting for it means not giving in to temptations.  It means eating what you need and avoiding what you don't.  It means not only training but it means that you give a little more at least once a week.  It means going as hard as you can for as long as you can, then going a little more.  It means doing all the workouts not just the easy ones.  It means stretching and cross training when your body needs a break.

Most of all going after your dreams means that you are willing to risk failure to find out if you can be the athlete you have imagined.  It means that you have to know that you are on a journey to a new place, a place you have never been.  Where that journey will take you is to a better you.  You may never be the best but I swear that you will be thinner, stronger, faster and better.  Those dreams are achievable and waiting for you to decide it's time to fight for them.

Are those dreams possible and attainable if you want them bad enough?  Is it time to find out?  There is an old saying that there are only two things you leave this life with, memories and regrets.  Choose memories.

Thanks for reading.
