Being Tested . . .

Your purpose will be tested from time to time.  This morning, I have sunburn, body aches, muscles want a day off . . . My training session today isn’t till 1pm, but I want to go now.  Well, I really want to stay here on the couch and not go at all today, but I have to go.  It would be easy to find something else to do and make an excuse for why I didn’t go.  This is called “Being Tested”.

I’m not going to give in because you have to keep your eye on the end result.  A few hours of extra rest will be good.  Get my “MOJO” kicking and hit the gym hard.  Afterwards, I know I will feel great and have a sense of accomplishment that I did something to improve.  I did something to move me a step closer to my goal.

Being tested happens to us all in every aspect of life.  Financial, Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, and Health.

Remember that your purpose is every day.  It is never won nor is it ever achieved, but your purpose is why you wake up and why you do the things you do.  Your purpose is your motivation.  It is easy to quit when we’re tested, but in reality that is what separates those that make things happen verse those that don’t.

You are not a quitter.  You are not going to allow being tested to control your will and desire for the better life.

Although my muscles are sore, I am sunburnt, and my training session was pushed to 1pm today, I am going to change some plans, stay eating healthy, and come 12:30pm, I am going to get excited for a great two hour workout.

Stay motivated friends . . .
