In today's world, it's easy to compare ourselves to others.
We look to social media, magazines, TV, blogs, etc. for "inspiration," only to walk away feeling more confused about who we really are and what we truly want out of life.
If that's you right now... I get it.
I, too, have compared myself to other girls I see on social media who have the "perfect" life and the "perfect" body and the "perfect" relationship.
I, too, have looked at the success/relationships/body of another woman and thought, "If I have that, then I'll be happy. Look how happy she is! It must be because she has all the things."
But what we don't realize is that we have everything we need to be happy inside of us... RIGHT NOW.
Even if you're FAR from your ideal 'body', even if you're single and want to be in a relationship, even if you feel like you're not getting the praise and recognition you feel you deserve at work.
You are exactly where you need to be right now.
And if you don't have X goal yet, it's because there's still so much to learn.
The beauty in life comes not from what happens when we achieve the perfect [body, life, relationship, career], but in all the BS we have to go through to get there.
Someone walks up to you and says "tomorrow, I'll give you the PERFECT body. Name whatever it is that you want, and I'll give it to you. Abs? Cool. Better butt? Done. You got it."
At first, you're like "HECK YA.... give it to me!"
But quick, 'instant' results come with a steep price...
because unless you've done the work to achieve it, you won't know how to keep it.
Through the STRUGGLE - although uncomfortable at times - you become stronger.
The hours in the gym, the discipline created waking up every morning and doing your workout, the patience to say 'no' to certain foods at times (instant gratification) in exchange for the long-term payoff of reaching your goal... THESE things are what help you become a stronger, more motivated and disciplined person.
Reaching the goal isn't the point.
It's who you become in the process of reaching that goal that matters most.
So... today I want to ask you:
Who are you becoming?
Who are you being RIGHT NOW?
Are you someone who chooses instant gratification, or someone who believes long-term reward tastes sweeter in the end?
Are you someone who snoozes their alarm, or someone who wakes up because they told themselves they'd do a workout before work?
Are you someone who says 'whatever... I'll start my diet tomorrow" instead of committing to starting TODAY, RIGHT NOW?
Each day, each hour, each minute, you are shaping the person you ARE and the person you're BECOMING with the choices you make.
So, WHO WILL YOU BE TODAY?
Want to become someone who takes action, creates amazing results in their body and life, and tackles goals head on? I thought so - you're my kinda gal ;)
