“If you’re waiting for the perfect time you may be waiting forever.”
Many people are always waiting for the “perfect time” to either start a new workout routine or a nutrition program.
Do any of these lines sound familiar to you?
“When I’m making a bit more money.”
“When I’m not as busy.”
“As soon as I get that promotion.”
“Once I lose 10 pounds.”
“Tomorrow is the day.”
As humans we are very good at manipulating ourselves into justifying why we can’t do something because of our current circumstances. At The Maker’s Body CrossFit, you will learn there is never a perfect time, so get started and the time might just be right for you!
The short story below was sent to me from a friend and is a reminder of what can happen when you never take a step forward.
Two grains were lying side by side on the fertile soil. The first grain said: “I want to grow up! I want to put down roots deep into the ground and sprout from the ground. I dream to blossom in delicate buds and proclaim the coming of spring. I want to feel the warm rays of sun and the dew drops on my petals !”
This grain grew up, planted the roots, sprouted and became a beautiful flower.
The second grain said: “I ‘m afraid. If I will put down my roots into the ground, I don’t know what they will face there. If I will grow tender stems, they can be damaged by wind. And if there will be flowers , they may be disrupted or not look so nice. So I’d rather wait for the safer time.”
The second grain was waiting. While the grain continued to sit and wait for the “perfect time”, a chicken passed by, saw the delicious grain and pecked it from the ground. As he walked away, he stopped for a second to admire the beauty of the beautiful flower.
Now is the time to start growing. Work hard in all your sessions when you come to the gym and develop beautifully for the world to admire because there is no perfect moment to come, right now is the time to release yourself from the cage of contemplation.
