Easy Gets You Nowhere

Everyone seems to want things easy these days.

It's easy to grab fast food rather than cook a meal; it's easy to eat a poptart for breakfast rather than make eggs; it's easy to sleep in rather than get up early and workout; it's easy to just take a diet pill rather than change your eating habits.

Well, guess what? "Easy" doesn't get you closer to your goals. In fact, "easy" doesn't get you very far in fitness, in fat loss, OR in life in general. Taking the easy way out is a path that almost always leads to nowhere....except maybe to where you are right now.

You can't always do things the easy way and then expect success. Success takes work. It takes effortYou may have to do things that are HARD in order to get the results you desire.

You know all those people you look up to, those people who have the body that you want so badly to have? They definitely didn't achieve their results by doing things that were "easy". They've busted their butts and put in the work to get to where they are now. They chose hard over easy.

So expect things to be hard. Get it in your head. Changing your lifestyle IS hard. Changing your eating habits, cooking real food, and getting your workouts in consistently is HARD, but it's what has to be done in order to reach your goals. The results will be worth it.

Success in anything rarely comes easy. Which road will you take?
