As we are approaching the “busy” holiday season, starting with Halloween, into Thanksgiving, Christmas, then the New Year, a lot of people have the tendency to start saying “well after the holidays, right now isn’t a good time, it’s too busy.” Are you one of those people? Do you know people like this?
I am going to be blunt here, THERE IS NEVER A GOOD TIME! We can use that excuse all year long. Let’s use the goal most people can relate to, getting Healthy, as an example.
The holidays are coming and all the food, parties, and events, it’s just not a good time to start eating healthy and exercising.
January comes around, oh back to school is so busy trying to get back on schedule, work is picking up after a couple slow weeks, you will start soon.
February comes, it’s cold you don’t want to get out of bed to work out, comfort food sounds good, oh and spring break is coming up so why start now.
March and April – The kids sports start, the weather is nicer but now we are starting to plan for summer and oh and Easter candy is the best can’t miss that, Mother’s Day is next month, and Memorial Day cookouts, I can’t miss that.
June and July fly by due to all the summer fun, still no time to work out or eat healthy too much going on.
August hits and it’s too hot to go outside, back to school is happening, way too busy to plan meals and get a workout in.
Well back to September, Labor Day cookouts, Fall is coming, and no progress was made to getting healthy in fact you probably gained more weight and have more health issue.
Does this sound like you? Well, it’s a bunch of excuses that you need to stop telling yourself.
There will NEVER be a good time, we can always find the reasons why we “can’t” do something. But we all have the same amount of time in our day, the difference is our priorities, make yourself a priority NOW, not after the holidays, not after the new year, not after summer vacation, and especially not after the kids grow-up. Now. Now is your time, think about what you have been putting off and making excuses for why you can’t because it’s not the “right time.” And start TODAY! That’s right I didn’t say tomorrow, or next week, or next month, I said today!
