We are all self made, but only the successful will admit it.
I read this the other day, and it struck me that I had never heard this idea put in this way before. I’m a firm believer in the idea that we control 99% of what happens in our lives. And the one percent we don’t control, we control our reactions to it, and therefore control what happens after it. But a lot of times we like to blame outside circumstances for our situation in life.
If you’re position in life, work, health, family, whatever, isn’t what you want it to be, it’s up to you to change it. And the great thing about it is, you can ALWAYS change it. You just need to put in the effort.
It’s pretty often I hear “If only I had the time to workout, I could be fit”.
It’s not a matter of finding the time. Fit people don’t have extra time in their days. Their lives are just as full of work, family, stress, problems as everyone else’s. The difference is they make their workouts a priority. After all, in 50 years who’s going to care when you tell them about the time you watched every episode of your favorite show. But accomplishing something great like running a marathon, competing in a weightlifting event, fighting a bear, or simply being more fit than the average person will all be points of pride for you.
Not to mention you’re much more likely to be alive in 50 years to feel that sense of pride if you commit to working out consistently.
Whether you’re successful or not, you’re the one that’s going to get you there.
