I am trying!!!
I know you have said that before in some area of you life. I myself have said that on many occasions. But what does I am trying mean?
It is neither here or there. There is nothing to it really. There is no commitment to anything when you say try. I am trying to lose weight, I am trying to get back to working out, I am trying to eat right….
Here is the thing….
You are either going to lose weight, start working out and eating right or you are simply NOT going to do so. There is no in the middle of trying.
By saying you are trying, you then have the excuse of ‘you tried,’ if things didn’t workout. That’s what we call being a lamb and not being a lion. A lion doesn’t try to go after his prey, he attacks it with everything he has. He stalks his prey. He sets it up so he is in the best position to conquer his prey. There is no half hearted effort with a lion. It is ALL in.
Are you trying to lose weight – or going to commit to losing weight?
Are you trying to eat right – or going to eat right?
Are you going to try and workout – or commit to joining a training facility to workout?
What to do next?
- Eliminate the word try from your vocabulary. There is no substance to the word try. It is not the most inspiring word in the dictionary and it does not empower you or motivate you to be a lion and attack life.
- Make a decision. You are either going to ‘do it’ or you are ‘not going to do it.’ Be honest with yourself and it will save you a lot of heart ache down the line. Stop pretending and START DOING!
- Make a commitment. There is nothing more rewarding than committing to something and seeing it to the end. The person you become at the of the commitment is where the reward lies.
This can be applied to any area of your life that you want to improve on. Make that commitment today, to doing what you need to do, to unleash your true potential to be your ultimate best.
Live with Purpose, Passion & Courage!
