We all have failed in life before. I try to be honest in these emails, so here is one more. I fail a lot…relationships, my marriage, parenting, business, life, etc.
You name it, my life is filled with failures. There are so many moments in my life I wish I had back. I think about the mistakes I made as a parent and as a business owner early on. It’s embarrassing. But because I made these mistakes did I stop being a father or close the doors to Solution Fitness?
Michael Jordan (he is kind of a fairly well know basketball player) has this quote:
If you are like Michael and I (come on, you have to like how I just linked myself to Michael Jordan!), you have made your own “failures”. These are your mistakes. Did you stop? Odds are, if you are like me and it was family or business related, the answer is “No”.
Why does it have to end in the negative when it comes to nutrition, exercise, and health. You eat one bad thing on Friday night, now the rest of the weekend is a wash. You decide you are ready to start an exercise plan, but today is Thursday. Need to wait until Monday. Then Monday comes and goes.
Here is a fact: We are going to fail in life. Our lives are going to be filled with mistakes. There is a lesson to be adopted from this to help you with your journey to be healthy.
It is ok to mess up. You can eat bread once in a while, enjoy a glass a wine (or 2), spend a weekend with your family in Disney and eat crap the whole week. This is a part of life. These are the fun times.
But you can do the right thing, most of the other time, and be healthy. Commit to eating right, moving more, and a better state of health. Make your mistakes along the way, but stay consistent.
You will be happy with the results!
