Hard Things Today, Great Things Tomorrow
By: Brian Gilleece
Just want to send ya'll an affirmation for the week. True not only in the gym, sports and business but, in any pursuit worth pursing and in LIFE. #facts
Your results are a mirror of your effort, your DISCIPLINE and sacrifice. In life, In the gym, your body, your health.
You can talk all you want… Results don’t lie. EFFORT doesn’t lie.
When it’s game day… when it’s SHOWTIME… Those who talk but haven’t worked… The work they’ve put in will be seen by everyone. Those who kept their mouth shut and WORKED when no one was watching, their work will be seen by everyone too, but in a much different way. Which one do you want to be?
If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, WHAT YOU WANT will become the sacrifice. And you will have to SETTLE for a life you DO NOT want. If you aren’t willing to SACRIFICE now, for what you want, then you can guarantee that LATER you will be making sacrifices for many things you don’t want. If you don’t work for it NOW, you will be working for someone who DID work for it, later. If you don’t put in the blood, sweat and tears NOW. Sacrifice your time, sacrifice your nights out, give up your treats. If you don’t give up everything that is holding you back, that will be reflecting back to you in your FUTURE. That’s life. Success will never come easy. GREAT results will NEVER come easy. You might get lucky. You might get OK results. But long term, success requires SACRIFICE. EFFORT and DISCIPLINE. The good news is, you rarely have to sacrifice anything that will give you long term pleasure. Almost always, all you really have to give up are things that are dragging you down. The things that do nothing for your future.
Your body is a mirror reflection of the sacrifice you make in the kitchen and in the gym. The DISCIPLINE to say no to short term temptation over long term pride. The DISCIPLINE to get up, to drag yourself through a workout. Consistently. Not just one day. EVERY DAY. Do you want the quick fix now, that leads to a bigger problem later? Or discipline now that leads to pride later? STRENGTH LATER. STRONG HABITS LATER. CLEAR MIND LATER. POSITIVE INFLUENCE OVER OTHERS LATER? Without EFFORT you will NEVER get it. Without SACRIFICE you will NEVER get it. WITHOUT DISCIPLINE you will NEVER KEEP IT.
So I’m asking you… Have you got what it takes to be great?
Tell yourself: It may take time…
It may take HUGE EFFORT…
I may have to dig deep and go to places I’ve never been before…
BUT I WILL MAKE IT! I WILL DO IT!
I WILL STAND AT THE END WITH PRIDE KNOWING I STOOD FIRM.
KNOWING I LET NOTHING AND NO ONE STOP ME.
THIS GOAL I HAVE… THIS DREAM I HAVE… It is more important THAN ANYTHING.
You can throw whatever you like my way.
I WILL DEFEAT IT. I WILL DEFEAT IT WITH MY WILL! I WILL GET THERE! I WILL!
