The Motivation You Need to Get Started Today!

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     - Maria Robinson

Today is the day! No more excuses!

It seems there is always a reason to put things off until tomorrow. Maybe you are tired, busy, scared of the unknown, or afraid to fail. All are valid reasons to postpone a new commitment. But valid or not, you will never accomplish your goals if you keep letting the excuses control your destiny. Excuses are not going anywhere, they will always exist, they will always try to convince you to try again another day.

Our busy lives are jam-packed from the moment we open our eyes in the morning until we rest our heads in the evening. We go throughout our day, dreaming of a better tomorrow. A tomorrow which includes a job promotion, a weight loss plan that actually worked, travelling around the world, having a better relationship with a loved one, finally writing that budget, winning a gold medal, or beginning a new career. That tomorrow can be a reality, but only you can make it happen. Your past failures do not define you. Your current excuses do not control you.

From this moment on, stop looking back, and start envisioning your amazing future. Ignore the negative thoughts, forget the diets that failed or the obstacles that slowed you down, for today you begin the journey- the journey to a new you!
