The Hardest Step

“All I see are a bunch of low foreheads who think they can change the world with dreams and talk. If you’re not ready to act, give me a break, and shut up.” – Benjamin A. Richards

The above quote is a favorite of mine. It can be applied to every aspect of our lives. Anytime I find myself hemming and hawing and wavering on a decision (which is far more than I’d like), I think of this quote.

No matter how good you plan, how well you prepare, how perfect your setup is, it’s all worthless unless you ACT. This is true in relationships, business, and especially fitness. You can make all sorts of plans for the New Year, or the beach body, or bulking over the winter, but if you don’t act on them, or quit after a week, they’re worthless. Typically, obsessing over perfection is a convenient excuse to cover for your fear of action. I know, I have done it.

So don’t obsess over needing to have everything perfect in a workout plan. At the end of the day, the only one that works for you is the one you stick with.

So choose a path, (or by all means, find a guide!) and act on the plan. Sometimes the hardest step is that first step. Take it.
