It happens to everyone.
You make a plan, it’s perfect. Eat like this, train this many times, sleep at this hour, and then, Life happens.
It’s a matter of discipline and focus, and yet no matter how much we strive to do the things we promise to ourselves we all somehow fall off the wagon.
Maybe you had a good reason, you got sick, someone close to you passed away, lost your job, anything and everything can be used as an excuse to throw all your hard work under the bus.
The most important thing is that you get back up and try again. And again. And again.
Over and over until it finally sticks. And then you accept that every once in awhile you’ll go off track, but once you get into the groove it’s relatively simple to steer yourself back onto the right path.
Easy..with discipline, and focus and an act of will.
Will that most people aren’t willing to put out but that each of us has to find within us if we want to strive towards a goal beyond us. To see into the future and say that is where I want to be, accepting all the mistakes and detours we take along the way, but knowing that the journey towards our destination will shape us into better, stronger human beings.
Don’t quit, just keep moving forward.
