Best Tip Ever: Start NOW!

Starting anything is hard. That first step seems like the biggest. We are such habit based creatures, it is easier for us to continue doing what feels normal then to break out and do something different. We build habits over time like a stream growing as water comes down from the mountains. Every time we fulfill one of these habits we are adding a little more water to the stream. Before we know it that habit stream has turned into a raging river and trying to fight against the current feels impossible.

We all build habits, both good and bad. Behavior, psychological, exercise, eating, all kinds of habits. I have wanted to start this blog for a while now but my habits kept me from it.  Other things felt easier, felt more normal, it was too hard to start something new no matter how much I wanted to. Let’s imagine for a moment, what if I would have written my first post two months ago? How would the blog have grown over those two months? It really doesn’t matter how it would have changed things because I can’t go back and start it.  All I can do is start it now, and that is the point!

Whatever it is you want to start, stop waiting! It isn’t going to be easier to break those habits after – enter arbitrarily selected date here – to start exercising, eating healthy, saving money, writing a blog. STOP WAITING! It’s a safe bet that whatever you want to start will benefit, even just a fraction, from starting today.

If you’re wanting to make health or exercise changes, then you’ve come to the right place. That’s my passion, thats what I love to talk about, thats where I’ll spend most of my time.

What have you started recently? What are you going to start now? Let me know in the comments bellow! I’m off to my first Yoga class in a LONG time because why wait? I should start now!

  3. Sam, this is great, and you’re so right! Yoga teachers are taught to instill in their students to “come from a place of you are ready right now” in order to push them to get over fear and hesitation, to try something new or push a little harder. I love that you speak to that being the goal out in the world as well as in the gym or on your mat. Super excited for your future posts!

    1. Thanks Corrie! And this was absolutely my experience last night in my yoga practice. It had been a long time and I have never excelled at yoga so it really was tough for me last night. But just because I’m not good at it yet, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do it. How else will I possibly get better?!? Thanks for the comment!
