Motivational Monday

Ugh Monday. Everyone's least favorite day of the week. Our weekend is over and we have to go back to work for the next five days. I'm sure you probably have a serious case of the 'Mondays' right now like the rest of us, but I'm going to tell you why you should learn to embrace today.

It's the beginning of the week, which means it's the perfect time to try something new, have a fresh start, or do something you've always wanted to do. Have you been wanting to start a new fitness regime? Start eating healthier? Finally lose those stubborn excess pounds? Well, today is the day! Stop saying, "oh, I'll just start tomorrow" and start right now. If you want something bad enough, you'll make it happen. 

Maybe you're scared to start because you have so far to go. But you know what? The sooner you start, the sooner you will achieve your goal. It may not be easy, but I can promise you that it will be worth it. Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar once said, "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." 

If you're in need of some serious inspiration, check out the video below. Arthur Boorman was a disabled war veteran who was told he would never be able to walk again, and gained a significant amount of weight as a result. Arthur eventually got the point where he realized it was time to make a change in his life; so he turned to yoga. His hard work and commitment to yoga ultimately saved his life as he lost 140 pounds and increased his strength, flexibility, and balance drastically. Arthur was able to completely change his life in less than one year's time, and his transformation is truly remarkable. 

"Just because I can't do it today, doesn't mean I won't be able to do it someday." - Arthur Boorman

Hopefully you were inspired by Arthur's story and are motivated to begin your own journey. Just remember that nothing good ever comes easy; it's going to be hard and you may want to quit, but the only person standing between you and your dreams is you. Realize your potential and know that the possibilities are limitless.
