We had recently moved to a new location, and I came across a gym hall within 10 minutes of walking distance. I had made a resolution to start my gym training again, having stopped for almost three years.
It has been a month since I started training. As I recall, resuming the training was not only tough but also discouraging! I used to be able to push 60kg on the Push-Up bar but now I could only manage with 20kg. After 30 minutes, my body was tired, I lost concentration, and I wanted to throw in the towel completely. However, I did not give up, but continued to press on. I went back to the gym three times a week for the first week, and then increased it to four times from the second week onwards. Now, I cannot help but go back for training every day.
As I was driving yesterday, I was caught in a heavy traffic jam as usual. Looking ahead, there were so many stationary cars in front of me. I was tempted to take a different route rather than to be stuck in the jam, even though I knew it would take a longer time to reach home. Finally, I decided not to do so, and took the same route. How many of you would have opted for a route that takes a longer time, as I did in my situation?
Accept this truth: You cannot pay another person to do the physical training for you and gain muscle on your behalf. If you want to gain a model’s figure, the only way is to pay the price – go to the gym and sweat it out! The same applies to your personal development. Many people dream about success but not many are willing to take decisive action to achieve it. Life does not give you what you want; it gives you only what you deserve. You reap what you sow. Steven Covey advocates that effective leaders cultivate good habits. How can I apply this principle to help me experience success in life?
Do you have time to prepare another receipt to experience happiness? I personally believe this is one of the most important action plan. Learning to redeem your time.
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
Fundamentally, you need to realize that your time is your life and how you use it will eventually determine the quality of your life. If we want to purchase something we use cash. Similarly, time is the token we use to build our life. Everything we do or not do will take away time from us.
