I just read a great blog post from Alwyn Cosgrove, who owns Results Fitness. It was about a homeless man who was given $100,000 dollars, which is a large sum for someone who is living under a bridge. Within 6 months, he had $5000 left and within 9 months he was back living under a bridge. The idea behind the post is the fact that it is your attitude needs to change in order to make something stick. For the homeless man in the story, his attitude toward money didn’t change. He didn’t want to invest, or budget, or anything else. It is the attitude, choices and behaviors that made him homeless, 100k didn’t change that.
So put this into perspective for YOUR life. Imagine that you woke up tomorrow morning and had the ideal health and fitness you always wanted. You looked exactly how you always dreamed. You felt like you have always wanted. What would you do differently to maintain that? Would you eat better? Would you exercise more to keep the physique? Or would you let your attitude, choices and behavior shatter the body and take you right back to where you were? Most of you would probably do whatever you can to keep the perfect body and health.
So why not start living that way now?
