Always Something...

I hope you're reading this with lights on above your head. 

We seemed to make out okay with the nasty storm last night.

Lots of power outages, trees down, and school closings, but it could always be worse, right?

And that actually ties into the lesson for today. 

It might strike a few nerves, but I think it's true. 

There will always be something...

Today it was a power outage, tomorrow it will be a sick kid, and the day after that you'll be busy at work. 

A month from now you'll tweak your knee on the ice, and a year from now your family will need you more than ever. 

I literally scream when people tell me they're too busy right now, or they don't have time right now. 

Not becuase I don't believe them...

But because I know, for all of us, it will ALWAYS be something. 

As I've said before, it's not saying " I don't have time right now..."

It's instead saying "It's not a priority right now..."

And let me be clear...

That's totally okay...sometimes! 

But please know, there will be always be something, you will always be busy, there will always be something that you think has to take priority, and it will never be a perfect time. 

I cry inside, not because I don't believe you, but I because I want to help you, and I know I can't help you if you're not under our roof. 


Like always, it comes back to mindset. 

There will never be the perfect time to start exercising...

You will never be 100% ready....

You will hit bumps in the road, you will always have other things pulling at you and taking priority, and that's totally okay. 

It's those that treat the journey as just that, a journey. 

There will be ups and downs, there will be times that are harder, and times that are easier, but it's those that ride out the storm, stick with it, constantly put one foot in front of the other, and are a part of a community that supports them, and rides out the storm together. 

There will always be something...

It's that 1% Better mentallity. 

Dedicated to Your Success,
