I know it’s interesting that I, as the creator of an inspirational website, would post this Words of Wisdom clip from fitness trainer and speaker Jared Hamilton. Even though the made this particularly for fitness goals, I think it can be applied to any goal that you have in life.
The gist of this clip from Jared is that you’re not always going to feel like working on your goals. If the only time that you can put in the effort is when you’re feeling motivated to, you’re going to struggle to get to where you want to be. There are going to be plenty of days when your motivation is low, or you’re not seeing results, or you’re feeling lazy, but you have to do it anyway. Success is based on consistency, discipline, and true commitment. Meaning you do what needs to be done even if you don’t want to. You stay committed to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.
Lawd. Even with this site and all of the positive content I take in, I still struggle to stay on top of what I’m working on and involved in. Even as I write this crazy short post and batch other pieces of content, I’d much rather be binge-watching something on Netflix. But I owe it to myself to commit and execute on a streamlining process to ultimately make my life easier. I owe it to myself to do what I have to do to get to where I want to be. We all do.
