Will Smith wisdom, part two

“I can create whatever I want to create.”

Really, it is all up to you! YOU are the master of your body. You HAVE to take control and let your surroundings know that YOU are important, too! Little actions here and there will add up to massive change later.

“There is no reason to have a plan B because it distracts you from plan A.”

Ha! “But James, if I don’t get up in the morning to workout, I’ll do it after work.” WRONG! No you won’t! Life gets busy. Everyday there is a new obstacle. Start your day off with YOU, then give yourself away the rest of the day. There is no option B. Get it done.

“Before anything can change, you need to believe you can, before anyone else does around you.”

It doesn’t matter how much I believe in you-YOU have to believe in you! I can show you the workout, but YOU have to do it!If you rely on others to motivate you, you will eventually fail, because it is only a matter of time before they fail you. Also, If I allowed the negative thoughts people throw at me, I wouldn’t be here helping you!

“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity.”

This one is great. Trust me, there is room in this world for many more GREAT people. You do not have to be average. You do not have to settle for second best. Be weird. Be a little kooky. Be the crazy chick that actually works out everyday and has a goal! That bathing suit is going to look so freakin hot on you! Get working…NOW!
