I read a quote the other day that said…

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”

Then I read one that said…

“Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect”

These two quotes got me thinking. So often we feel like we have to wait for the situation to be perfect or the stars to align for us to make changes in our lives. It seems like we’re either waiting for more money to come in or for children to be older. The truth is things will never be perfect. Those stars will most likely never align. Human nature is to avoid challenges so we will always have an excuse. If we are going to start things and see changes happen we just have to do it. We have to make those sacrifices I talked about last week.

Any meaningful change isn’t going to come easy. Sure there are quick fixes out there, but they don’t bring lasting changes. Weight isn’t meant to just melt off and happiness doesn’t come from a package. There are products that can help facilitate change, but to get it to stick and sink in to your core you have to do some hard work. And that means trying, showing up, making the most of every moment, making sacrifices, being committed, and making a choice.

Let’s do our best to show up and try. You have to start, you have to find a way. And let’s not forget our why. Remembering why we want those changes makes it so much easier to make those moments perfect and strive for success. So when those stars are out of alignment and we can’t find that illusive perfect moment let’s find a way and make it happen anyway. Decide to show up and work hard. Decide it is worth the effort and make it happen, no matter the obstacle.
