Everyone has an excuse for something at some time. It’s natural. I can help anyone work through any excuse. Many of them are good thought reasons that just need help learning a new thought process to get around.
There is one excuse I refuse to acknowledge. 1. Because it’s an easy out and almost never has any actual basis. 2. It’s BS in 99.9% of the cases it’s used.
“I can’t do that”
I have heard just about every variation of this excuse there is.
“I can’t do that, I’m to old”
“I can’t do that, I’m not in shape enough”
“I can’t do that, my schedule is to full”
“I can’t do that, I have a bad back”
“I can’t do that, I have dog at home to take care of”
“I can’t do that, I travel too much”
“I can’t do that, it looks hard”
Claire is 63 years old and she does CrossFit 3 times a week. Is your age really the reason, you can’t do this?
Matt lost 44lbs AFTER coming to work with us. So you definitely need to get into shape before you come in to get into shape…..
Logan has been a force in the CrossFit community for years as an advocate for adaptive athletes. Tell me again how your “bad shoulder”, “bum knee”, or “sore hip” is keeping you from reaching your fitness goals.
Veronica is one of the top realtors in our area. She sold over 50 houses in the last year. She is married and has two active kids. She comes in 3 times a week and attributes her ability to focus on her business to her fitness routine. You sure you can’t find a way?
There’s a quote that I heard many years ago, “Those who say they can’t and those who say they can, are both usually right.”
Your mindset and the decisions you make can enable you or they can trap you in place.
Do you want to make a change?
Are you happy with your energy level?
Do you want to get a good night sleep, are you stressed?
Do you want to lose some fat?
Are your kids wearing you out?
Start something new. It will be a challenge, but that’s the point. You haven’t made the effort yet, the work you put in will give you the results, but the excuses have to stop first.
