I was listening to the radio the other day. (I normally listen to my own music or books on tape) I was amazed at this one story that this guy had told. He said that he was so upset that he had no freedom in his relationship.
Apparently, every time he would “hang with the boys,” when he came back home his girlfriend would grill him incessantly.
He complained that she would ask him every detail of their night, who he hung out with, what their names were, if he met anybody, where exactly they went, and other questions that more or less led to a detailed run down of exactly what happened that night.
He apparently was getting tired of it and wanted to know what the show hosts had for ideas to get her to stop.
Well you probably might have already guessed that there might have been some trust issues there.
You see, what the guy so conveniently forgot to mention is that he had cheated on her recently and she was concerned that he might try to do it again.
Now, here’s lies the issue. He didn’t want to be grilled, didn’t want to say anything minus the fact that he was going out with friends.
You might be saying to yourself, yeah he deserves it. What an idiot right? He should be lucky to even be in the relationship right?
Well let me tell you something Judgy McJudgerson you are probably doing the same thing right now to some extent.
There are no words, no solutions that will instantly fix any situation. He can tell his girlfriend for the next five years about what he did last night, but it won’t make a difference.
My college football coach used to always tell me that you don’t get into football shape in one day if you took the whole summer off to talk about how great you’re gonna be. You have actually have to DO SOMETHING
You see the problem here playa is that you can’t fix problems with excuses.
So what does that mean for you?
You have to put in some effort. It’s only when you realize that no matter what you do, there is no quick fix to any issue.
But until people realize that companies are still going to keep stealing your money claiming to give you the latest fat loss solution that lets you eat whatever you want. Or the latest pill that will make you stronger and more toned without the need to workout.
Don’t get me wrong there are things that help, but like that guy on the radio, the only way to make a real change is to not just talk about it, but consistently be about it.
The General Fitness company thrives on consistency and I have had countless others who have succeeded in:
Ridding themselves of excuses
Having fun while exercising
Being motivated to eat right consistently
Settling for nothing less than their best efforts in improving their lifestyle.
What you do now, directly affects what you do in the future.
