It’s Easy To Say This, What Is Not So Easy is To Do This….

Easy, Effort, they both start with E’s and they both are very opposite from one another.  I have told myself that I want something, but am I really willing to put the effort in? My cousin made a post today that made me reflect on this, and after 3 hours of therapy, I walked out feeling that same empty feeling again.  We want our lives to be different so bad, but sadly many times we just don’t know how much it will change because we weren’t willing to put the effort in just to see the results that could come from it. 

Results are never guaranteed, and in this Western society we do too many things off results and nothing else – we won’t work out unless we are guaranteed a certain number of calories lost.  We don’t want to try something new unless we know we will succeed.  Leaving us to live in a society that is limitless, but imprisoning ourselves in our own limiting minds.  

What if we decided for once, who cares about the payoff – let me just be consistent, let me put in the effort and let’s just see what happens.  But, how difficult this theory is, especially those who feel like they are racing against the clock.  The clock of bills, life, age, and biology all working against us with every minute that passes .

Truth be told, we will all die, but if we die we can at least leave a legacy that will always be alive.  This legacy will most likely say one or two things,  they tried their best, or didn’t try at all because they feared not having the perfect outcome.  Which legacy do you want to leave behind?

For me, I know which one I THINK i want to leave behind, the one that would be NICE to leave behind, but that means that I have to put in the effort to be able to leave it behind, and is it worth all that? Most definitely!

So, today  – what have you been saying that you wanted to do, to have, or to be but when reality set in you just weren’t willing to put in the effort to achieve it – and why not?  Will you regret it 10 years from now, or will you take each minute of you day and do something that you will appreciate later? 

Leave me your thoughts and comments!
