Day 14 –

Everyone wants to be rich but no one wants to work for it. Everyone wants to be healthy and in great shape but no one wants to eat healthy and exercise daily. Everyone wants to be wise and intelligent but no one wants to read as many books and spend as many hours as it takes to do so. Everyone wants to win but no one wants to be in a position where they have to compete.

If you want something bad enough you have to go and get it. It is unreasonable to believe that you can get something without the vigorous and daily pursuit of it. Today, I increased my push-up and sit-ups by 10 as I said I would do every week until I get to 100. The interesting thing about the increase is that I thought 45 would be harder than 25 but I was wrong. Gradually my strength has increased and rightfully so.

You can’t start at level 10. You have to work your way up to 10 by starting at 1 and taking the necessary steps to get to 10. Overtime you’ll build enough strength and endurance where level 10 feels like level 1. Although I was dreading it this morning, I quickly found that 45 doesn’t feel any harder than 25 did, it actually feels good.

What have you been doing to challenge yourself during these 100 Days to a Better You? Are you in a holding pattern waiting for a miracle? How have you increased your repetitions? How are you challenging yourself to be better?

If its easy, it’s not working. Remember, no pain, no gain.

To The Top!
