You hear the…
of the monitor nearby.
Your health is critical, and you’ve only got a few hours left to live. You can feel your heartbeat and energy slide.
As you lie there, you start to look back on your life. You never made the change you wanted.
You stayed stuck in the same job, that same relationship, that same overweight body until now, the day you die.
You read books but never applied them. You planned diets, but you never followed them.
You told yourself what you were going to do, psyched yourself up a thousand times, but you never did it. You started dozens if not hundreds of life changing escapades and then wilted.
As you lie there in your hospital bed, loved ones cycling in and out over the course of the day, what do you feel?
What would you give if you could go back to this moment – the one in which you’re reading this article – and do things differently.
Future you is not going to regret a lack of achievement or the absence of any one thing in your life.
The only thing you will regret is not trying.
Not striving. Not pushing through when the going got tough.
You won’t regret not making a million dollars; you’ll regret never starting that business or quitting that lousy job.
You won’t regret not marrying a supermodel; you’ll regret staying in that dead-end relationship when you knew you could do better.
You won’t regret not looking like a bodybuilder; you’ll regret stopping at the drive through every night on your way home and living a lie.
And this will happen to you.
You will die.
You will go through all of that on your own, in the quiet solitude of your own dwindling consciousness.
Unless you take the action that’s needed to change, to build the life and body you want…
The life and body you can be proud of.
Take action, today and everyday.
And never settle.
