11 Ways to Achieve a Healthier Life

I was asked to give my best “fitness” tip and here is what I said:
“The fitness industry is very unique. It has a staggering failure rate, yet still grosses billions of dollars per year. So why aren’t people reaching their goals when they are clearly spending their hard-earned money to support every new fitness fad that hits the market? Achieving your fitness goals and the getting the body you want doesn’t have anything to do with the latest fancy gadgets or today’s most popular workout routine – it all depends on YOU. Our daily lives are filled with negativity from going to a job we don’t like, allowing negative people into our circle of friends and from trying to escape our past. These roadblocks and self-imposed self-doubt can many times prevent us from achieving any goal we set for ourselves in and out of the gym – and from living the life of our dreams.”
“If you ever want to achieve great things in your life, you must first start with belief in yourself. This small spark can turn into a raging fire that can burn down the bridges to your past and help you eliminate the obstacles that you face every day. Once you have this belief, you will become unstoppable if you also take action. Focus on small progress every day and live every moment – and don’t fear failure. You don’t have to be perfect, just persistent. Realize that every second that you are not taking action is another day living the life you so desperately want to change.”

Couldn’t agree more with your advice. Too many people think that if they buy the latest and greatest equipment or program that it will change their lives. Fact is, that the only thing that will get the job done, no matter what you have, is yourself. It’s all about what you have inside you and how much you really want something. Nothing great is ever handed to us.
