A Thought for Tuesday...

“Our days are numbered. One of the primary goals in our lives should be to prepare for our last day. The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. What preparations should we be making now? The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day.” Billy Graham

Ask yourself this question, did you make a difference today, not only in your life, but in someone else's life as well? Did you reach your full potential? Are you another day closer to meeting your goals? If not, list where you went wrong. Recognize what you could have done differently and then put it into action! With weight loss it is not always about reaching your ultimate dream, it is however about recognizing that you have 24 hours to do something great! A chance to take your body to a new level, to reach another goal, to touch someone's life in a special way. The finish line is set. It is there waiting for you to cross it, but what about the smaller achievements you can make along the way. Do not loose sight of the countless opportunities that are before you! Take a moment today and think about a goal that you want to reach, it can be anything. Maybe you want to run another mile, lift heavier, drink more water, skip the dessert. Anything that you think will take you one more step towards that finish line. It is not a leap, it is a single step. A single effort that will add up over time. This is how you will reach your dream. Waking up each morning with a mission, a plan as to how you will get there. I challenge each of you to do something different, new and exciting today. Step outside of your comfort zone and reach, really reach towards your goal.

We have been given today as a precious gift, don't waste one second of it. This day will pass us by only once!

Work hard, reach high!
