The world is full of negative people. They are like black holes that suck the life out of you. They drain you, bring you down, exhaust you and never give you any words of encouragement.
What can i do about this, you ask. Well, start to be aware of who those negative people in your life are. Have you ever been in the company of someone who makes you feel unsafe, tense or on guard? Maybe your heart starts racing and you get on edge and all you want to do is run from this person. Maybe your energy starts to fizzle and you start to feel ill.
Once you start to recognize some of the above symptoms then you can start work on protecting yourself from them.
Negative people not only give off bad vibes but they also try and talk others from fulfilling there dreams. These people have failed at something and therefore they want you to fail. They feel good every time they see someone fail at something they failed at.
Don’t let anyone make you give up on your dreams. Keep your head up and carry on moving forward. YOU CAN DO IT!
How many of you tried to fulfill a dream but gave up too soon? Maybe you gave up because it was too hard. Maybe you gave up because you did not have the time, or maybe you gave up because you didn’t see any results.
The bottom line is, you gave up because you didn’t get what you wanted right away.
To succeed in anything in life you need to give it time and give it your best shot. A lot of people will try living a healthy lifestyle but give up after a few days as they did not see any immediate results.
Perseverance is the key here. If you really want to fulfill that dream then go for it. Keep going and don’t give up.
Let’s be honest, staying motivated is not easy. We are constantly bombarded by negative thoughts especially at the first sign of failure.
A lot of people don’t think they can change. These people often believe that the inner voice that says “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough” isn’t being negative but is simply realistic. It isn’t. It’s you projecting your habit of being negative. A negative person will look at others who are successful and happy and say, “They’re just lucky.” They’re not just lucky. They’ve worked diligently for a long time to get where they are. They had a certain mentality that drove them to do what they did. You, too, can call up that drive and you can change.
Don’t let previous bad experiences hinder you. Maybe you weren’t the most athletic kid in school, but that was years ago. Your goal now is to exercise , stay healthy and enjoy your life.
Only you can make the change. Only you can replace the word “Can’t” with “Can“.
The new year is just around the corner and that means new years resolutions. The 3 new years resolutions i hear all the time are:
I am going to start a diet
I am going to start exercising
I am going to stop smoking
Now, out those 3 which one is achieved? ….NONE!. Do you agree or not?
Honestly it amazes me at how people “wait” for the right time to start a fitness program. It’s been said that as long as we are looking for an excuse we will always find one. In my experience, most people understand that starting a fitness program is something they should do, however there always seems to be something getting in their way.
Here are the top 4 reasons for not working out, that i hear all of the time, and my replies when i hear them:
Gym is expensive – My reply “It costs nothing to workout at home”.
I’m too tired – My reply “Exercise is proven to boost energy levels and attitude”
It’s boring – My reply “Well its a fact that if you don’t enjoy something you won’t stick with it. There are plenty of other activities you could do. Take up dancing, zumba, basketball, cycling etc.”
I am too busy – My Reply ” Well it comes down to your goals and priorities. If you really really want to be fit and healthy then it has to become a priority. Only if you really want it will you make the time and effort. Schedule a workout time in your calendar and plan your days. Step out of your comfit zone and make it work for you”
If we are looking for excuses we will find them. Always. Stop looking for excuses and go get fit.
What ever new years resolution you have, start doing it today. Do it for yourself:)
