Freight Train



Sometimes you get to a point where you say “Why the hell not?” But seriously…why not? What have you got to lose? Nothing. What do you have to gain? Everything. At first, the task in front of you may seem daunting – but then you realize that really…it’s going to be fun. I don’t think there’s anything more addicting out there than success. Achieving results and seeing your life transform might be one of the coolest things out there.

“Nothing happens until something moves.” Albert Einstein said that. Can I make a connection to something motivational? Indeed.

It has happened all too many times where I get so serious about what I am doing that I forget to sit back and take a moment to absolutely enjoy everything I am doing. It’s easy to do this in the gym – get so focused on what you are doing that you tune absolutely everything out…hell, its easy for me to do this for an hour or so – but I do have to remind myself to take a minute to sit down and smile at what is going on. Call it an appreciation moment.

So move – because nothing will happen if you don’t. Change your view, change your actions, change your world. Life works in mysterious ways when you make a vow.

    I kind of needed this. I just got off the phone with someone in a big company asking me to take a qualifying exam for the HR department. I’m kind of convinced I won’t pass it, but I think I’m going to do it. What have I got to lose? Nothing. If I don’t pass, then I still have this job at my college. If I do pass…well, I’ll cross the bridge when I get there. Thanks! 😉

    Having something so inspirational to read is a huge motivator for me, just starting off, on my weight loss journey. Keep inspiring, motivating!
