No matter how slow you go, you’re still lapping everybody on the couch.
Good Morning Party People!!!!!
Its been a while since I’ve done a Motivational Monday post. Believe it or not, I decided to stop because I wasn’t sure if it was adding enough value. But, once I stopped people started asking, so its BAAAACK!!
Happy Monday! I hope you woke up today energized and ready to go after this week, full send! The quote today is another one of my favorites. It can be about exercise, or about anything else, really.
Sometimes its so hard to just get off the couch (real or metaphorical) and just get started. Once we get started, sometimes we fear that our best isn’t enough. The thing we dont realize, though, is that most other people haven’t even mustered up the energy to get off the couch yet! So, even if you were to just jog to the end of the street and back, you’ve probably done more jogging than at least 75% of Americans.
Any progress you make, even if it seems “not good enough” is still worlds above theirs. Of course thats true, because they haven’t even started.
So, the moral of this Motivational Monday is to “just do it”!! Even if it seems like you’re not good enough. Even if it seems like all your ideas are bad. Even if it seems like you’ll never get where you want to be. You’re actually setting yourself apart just for trying to work towards a goal!
Think about this..
The little secret is that the absolute hardest part is getting off the couch. Did you know that a space shuttle uses more fuel taking off than it does the whole rest of its trip? This is because the energy needed to start from a stopped position is way higher than the energy needed to keep going!
So, once you start, not only are you way ahead in the race, but you are now building positive momentum that will make each consecutive step easier than the last. So, if you just keep applying the little bit of energy needed to stay moving in the right direction, you will progress. EVEN IF YOUR PROGRESS SEEMS SLOW AT FIRST!!
What I’m trying to say here is that whatever it is you’ve been wanting to do, from exercise to starting a blog to learning a language, just start!! Just by choosing to start, you’ve set yourself apart and started to gain some momentum.
I believe in you and I know you can do it!!! Thanks for reading! 🙂
