Have you ever been tired? Do you ever feel like giving up? Have you ever felt like you cannot take another step forward? In your mind do you see no way out of this mess that you are in? You are not alone.
The majority of people at one or more times in their life wanted to give up. Thank goodness, they didn’t. Do you really think that it will all be better if you just quit? Are you wanting to quit because you wanna make somebody else hurt the way you hurt.
Do you really think that in giving up all your problems go away? What if they get worse?!?! What if. What if there is life after death. You honestly want to take that chance. Stand still, catch your breath, and start again. It’s a new day, it’s a new year, another opportunity for you to fail or maybe succeed. No matter how bad it has been, no matter how terrible it is at the present time your life “can” turn around. No matter what hole you have dug yourself into, you can dig yourself out as well. I pray that you hang in there. I pray that you get the help you need. Please talk to someone, release whatever it is that is taking you to this point of quitting. If you talk to most people and ask them how their life was 15 or 20 years ago, for some even just a few years ago, I guarantee most of them would never believe they would have the life now that they do. Trust me, your life can get better, your life can get way worse. But it will change. Sometimes it needs to get worse in order for it to get better. It really is up to you.
Remember this! Computers need to be reset, rebooted, and updated. Vehicles need to be re-fueled. They need the oil changed, a new set of tires, they need a tune-up, sometimes a complete rebuild. Homes get remodeled all the time. Home improvements, small renovations, or sometimes a complete remodel. Why would you think we are any different as human beings?
Make 2018 the best year of your life. Give yourself an update give, yourself a tune-up, give yourself a remodel. You deserve it. Kick your training and fitness in gear. Change your habits, create new and better habits. Strengthen your body, strengthen your mind.
In class, we push each other to get better and stronger. To achieve goals that at one time we never thought we would have. We encourage each other to create new goals that are hard to obtain.
Today I received a fortune cookie that read “Collaborate with those who have both intelligence and integrity”. I felt like my dad was talking to me again through this little fortune cookie. So, pick yourself up. Don’t allow the disappointment or sadness of the moment, no matter whether the moment is one day or a week long or even if it lasts as long as a year or two, dictate your life. They are only moments.
Come and allow yourself to be a part of an amazing family and together we will make 2018 an amazing year.
Keep pushing forward my friends. And never give up.
