Reality Check

Posted by Leave a Comment

Today marks 90 days into 2012. The year will be 1/4 done.

What have you accomplished?

Where are the promises you made yourself on January 1st?

Imagine the little camera at the top of your computer screen was ON every one of the 89 days this year. If little green light was ON all along… what would it see? (It was there that whole time. What DID it see?)

Did it see you mapping out your action plan every day and executing it?

Did it see you deciding what you need to change, and changing it?

Did it see you making real investments in whatever area of health you lack?

Did it see you putting new changes into action?

Or does it mostly see you frittering away your life, your opportunities, squandering your health, disappointing those who depend on you?

How about that microphone in your laptop?

How many excuses does it hear?

How much rationalizations? How much victim talk?

Does it listen to you shortchanging your future, telling yourself you’re too busy, too overloaded, too confused? Does it hear you complaining that life’s too hard?

If you wanna sit in a stupor dreaming about by-and-by in-the-sky…. if you want to punt on this life with dreams of reincarnation for the next…. hey, it’s a free country. But as far as I’m concerned you get ONE life. And this is it.


The worst thing you can EVER do is lie to yourself.

“I don’t really need to do that.”

“I already know how to do that.”

“I’ll do that tomorrow.”

“I will invest in my health when the economy picks up.”

“Those trainings are too expensive.”

“Things always manage to work out OK.”

“Maybe I can negotiate the price of success just a little bit. For a little while, anyway.”

People who think that way always end up with the man’s boot on their dead neck. At their funerals, their friends talk about how well-intended they were, instead of celebrating what they actually DID.

If you think this is too harsh, unsubscribe.

If you think I’m self serving and I don’t have a right to be, unsubscribe.

If you know I’m speaking the truth, get busy.

If you need a plan of action, then don’t hesitate to call and get the training you need. Phone number is 214-394-7360. I am not gonna shove anything down your throat. But if something I have is going to help you, I will make sure you know.

And…. if you put off thinking about this until someday, you’ve still made a decision.

Time is ticking. Ticking. Ticking. Once gone, it never comes back.

About the Author ()

I am a husband, father of 2 girls (I was told that I was meant to be King)! I have been in the fitness industry since graduating from the University of Florida back in 97. I had the privilege to do an internship with the world renowned Dr. Cooper and the Cooper Aerobics Center. My initial start after graduating was as a personal trainer at a small private personal training studio in Orlando. After eight months, I moved to Dallas and worked as a personal trainer and manager for the Premier Athletic Club in Dallas. Since that time I have continued to work as a fitness professional in a variety of roles. Most recent is the development of America's # 1Lifestyle program for Working Moms called "Working Mom Workouts." I enjoy working with my clients and helping people reach their fitness goals.
