The journey may be tougher, but it is not impossible
Pardon me as I drip sweat onto my computer keyboard.
I just finished a run and I’m tired but this thought just came into my mind and I want to capture it. Hopefully, it will inspire you along your journey.
The thought I had is the same as the title…
The journey may be tougher, but it is not impossible.
For many of us, we have gone so long without doing something to better ourselves or our lives. That may seem a little vague at first but please think about it for a moment.
Since I just finished running, I will use that as an example. Today I ran. Last month I ran. I have ran quite a bit this year. Last year…not so much.
So, last year I was not running as much so you would think I would be eating less. Nope! I was eating whatever I wanted. I was focused on work, focused on business, not focused on my health.
I know now and I knew then that I could have been focusing on my health more. So what’s the difference this year from last year?
I just care more about my health.
Last year, I would just make excuses…
“I’m tired from work.”
“I have something more important to do.”
“I will exercise tomorrow.”
And of course, when tomorrow came, I said the same thing.
Now, today, I need to run. It is now a must because I value my health. But because I didn’t value my health last year, this year I have to work harder. I’m not just burning the fat from what I ate today or last week. I have to push harder to burn the fat I added to my body last year. The journey to becoming fit is tougher…but it is not impossible.
That’s one example. Now let’s look at it from a financial standpoint…
If someone does not have enough money to live the lifestyle they want, it is really easy to just get a credit card for more purchasing power. After all, you will pay it back when you have more money, right?
We can make all kinds of excuses, can’t we?
“I really need this large television. I’ll pay it off with my next paycheck.”
Then the next payday comes…and there is some new shiny object that has caught your attention.
Months and maybe even years go by…
The next thing you know your debt has grown out of control. You’re paying the minimum payments but it doesn’t seem to be helping.
Now, getting out of debt has become a primary concern but you are not sure where to begin.
First, you start with getting educated on debt and how to clean it up.
Then, you take action and clean it up.
Because you are dealing with debt that you have created over years, paying off the debt will be tougher, but it is not impossible.
You can think about this for any journey you are going through.
This can even apply to starting an online business.
Most people already have a 9-to-5 job that they work hard at during the day. Then if you want to start a business, you have to find the energy and motivation to work on your business when you finish your job.
Most people want to relax and unwind after work. Or if you have kids, then you want to spend time with them. Somewhere in your life, you have to make sacrifices to start a business at this stage of your life. Most likely, you will sacrifice sleep because there are not enough hours in the day to do everything and get 8 hours of sleep.
Starting a business when you have other commitments is tougher, but it is not impossible.
Starting an online business may be an easier and less expensive option. If this interests you, take a look at this online business.
