It’s never too late, and the story of setting long term and short term goals-
As I started to consider this blog it dawned on me that people need to relate to others stories of climbing mountains and the desire to change. I believe that everyone has that diamond in their soul, that shining piece of life that wants to be polished and brought out to show to everyone, like a 5 carat engagement ring, flash it. Now this story relates to my personal mountain, I will keep it brief because I realize that 400 words come fast so here it goes.
I did not reach the physical condition I am in at this point in my life overnight, and for those who do not know me you can look at the body building show pictures on our website, that I competed in April of 2010, pictures, journal entries, training log, that condition did not just magically happen it took time. However it did not take that long; just a goal, a purpose, a reason to share success with others and perhaps hopefully motivate. GOALS
My story has a series of goals, at 40 I decided to go back to college and finish my long dormant unfinished Bachelors degree, an unfinished goal. At 49 I had not only finished my bachelors I had completed a Masters and it was on to the next goal, personal training and fitness. It was at that point the show became a reality, and through hard work, a couple of great people to train with and a plan, a goal the unachievable were achieved. Competing in that show was a key, but really just another goal, a sense of purpose, and when the dreaded January Midwest winter sets in having a goal to keep you occupied is needed. The point being GOALS!
Begin the new you by stretching your imagination; life is way too short to let a tendency to take the easy way suck the life out of you.
