"If there is no dull and determined effort, there will be no brilliant achievement."
It seems most people in the world have the desire to be better, be healthier, richer, leaner, and much more than what they currently have or are. The problem is those thoughts, dreams, and desires are all kept inside the head and the heart and rarely does action become taken to develop the desires in the flesh. Sitting there thinking, dreaming, believing, and hoping that one day better comes to them like a magic trick. Good things do not come to those who wait because no action is being taken to manifest such good things. The people in this world who have everything they want have those things because they acted on their desires and created their own good. A very good man who I admire and trust more than anyone on this planet once told me, when I was beginning to understand the actions, that "Nobody will give you anything. If you want something- you have to take it."
It's not easy to take the steps of action needed to develop the better you seek because we have this trait that has been instilled in our DNA since the beginning of time- Fear. Fear will stop the most action oriented person dead in their tracks if they let it. We need to let go of our Fears and push them aside. There is too much good in the world to be obtained or created to let fear stop us. Below are three steps, three agendas, and the motto of Activate Fitness that can be considered "Action Steps". Three simple words that can help you accomplish whatever it is you want in this life. Do not wait for tomorrow because tomorrow will never come. You want something in your life? Start now. Use the three words below as guidelines to obtaining everything that flows through your desire.
The first step in your new journey after you have clearly thought of what it is you want to bring into your life is to become Dedicated to achieving the success you're after. It is going to take a sincere and total commitment to become dedicated towards your goals. It will not be easy, but nothing worth having is ever easy to come by. Dedicate yourself to a plan of action and start today. Going after your goals or desires may cause some other things in your life to change and if you avoid this- failure is sure to bite your ass. Are you looking to lose 20 or 30 pounds? You may need to dedicate time out of your day to do something you never have or something more than you ever did to get there. Are you willing to rise out of bed an hour earlier and get in a 30 or 40 minute walk before work? Are you willing to avoid drinking beer at this weekends BBQ so you can stay on track? Would you give up your favorite food that has been a centerpiece of your daily diet for the past 5 years? How about dropping from Premium Cable to Basic Cable so you can afford a monthly gym membership? The dedication you give towards your goals will determine the outcome of your efforts. A little bit here or a little bit there is not going to cut it. Planning on buying a house? Can you throw your cell phone away for two years and live with the clothes and shoes you have until you save up enough money to buy that house?
Ask yourself how bad you want whatever it is and dedicate yourself to finding it.
Demand everything you want in your life and use the dedication you recently found to achieving great success. By demanding the "goal" you're after you let yourself know that it is important to you. Whether it's weight loss or a new car, demanding those things out of your life and your efforts will keep you on track to getting where you want to be. If you're looking to lose weight and time is tight you're going to need to demand yourself to do whatever it takes to stick with your dedication. Getting out of bed an hour early is going to be tough but the demanding desire inside you to lose 30 pounds will help you get up, out, and walking- and when you finish walking you'll feel so much better anyways. Demanding more out of yourself, demanding commitment to a goal, and demanding your efforts are crucial to the outcomes of your desires. Also you need to rid your life of negative. Anything at all that is negative. Your thoughts, your emotions, your words to others, the news you watch at 10pm- get rid of it. Demand positive. If you wake one morning and feel shitty because something you do not want to do needs to be done- think positive about it and demand the negative to leave before your feet hit the floor. Negative energy will destroy your hopes and dreams and cause your path to whatever to become sidetracked and altered right before your eyes. Demanding positive energy all the time will increase the likelihood of a greater outcome- faster. Be Demanding throughout your daily life. Demanding your mindset to switch from negative to positive in the blink of an eye. Dedicated goals with demanding actions create the good in your life.
Don't let anyone ever tell you something can't be accomplished. Don't let anyone ever tell you that you are not allowed to do something or can't afford something. If you want it- go get it. Be determined. Everything you do in life has a circle of cause and effect so think wisely before you act but when you know- deep in your heart and buried in your mind- that you want "that", dedicate your energy to getting it while demanding the effort inside yourself, determined to succeed no matter what. Determination from deep inside the body is created by a burning desire and passion flowing through your veins like blood. Don't let minor failures or even big failures hold you back from what you want. You are determined to succeed. Losing weight isn't easy- it's simple- but it's not easy. You need that determination to stick with you day in day out. If you're at work with lunch you prepared at home and your office decides to go out to a diner- remember your determined to succeed, to lose weight, and make smart choices. Yes, you can tag along- but be smart.
Mahatma Gandhi once said "A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history." Being determined to achieve what the heart desires is one of the greatest forces on Earth. Learn how to use determination to your benefit. An Olympic athlete does not quit if they break their leg. They are determined to compete in front of hundreds of millions and they will. The work they face will be much harder, the time frame will double, but the determination, dedication, and demanding desire to compete will not let them quit.
Dedicated goals with Demanding actions create the good in your life while keeping you Determined to succeed.
Don't ever quit or say "I can't" Toss those words out the window and replace them with "I Will". Everyone has so much more potential inside of them. The keys to having everything you ever wanted in life are right in front of you. It's never easy, it is hard, but the desire and passion inside is not lying to you. Stop letting Fear suppress your dreams and use your wildest imagination to create those dreams in the flesh. It may take 2 days or 20 years but you can't quit. Stop letting people put you down, don't let media tell you what you believe or how you should act. You are you and nobody else and nobody else is who you are. Go out there and get it.. but DO NOT WAIT. Start now. Incredible things will be achieved in your life when you use your incredible dedication and demanding determination. Get it.
