Okay everyone, this is it. I started the P90X Extreme Home Fitness program on Sunday, August 8th and it is a killer!
The first thing I did when I got my P90X program a few days ago was read the Fitness Guide. In the beginning of the guide is a letter from the Carl Daikeler who is the CEO of Beachbody and Team Beachbody and the title of his letter is Embrace the Struggle. It was just what I needed to read.
In the letter Carl talks about how he went through the P90X program and how he struggled in the beginning but he persevered and made it through and had amazing results. He emphatically says “it’s okay if you’re struggling” because he doesn’t want anyone to quit.
I found this very encouraging because right then and there I knew that although this would be tough, I could do it. Many before me had the same issues and they conquered and so can I.
Whatever you want that’s worth having, usually requires some struggling. If you want to be successful, it usually requires some struggling.
If you want to have a successful business you will have to struggle to get it started and in a position where you are making a profit. The money just doesn’t come in as soon as you open the doors. There are expenses, employees, inventory, suppliers, distributors and customers you have to deal with on a regular basis but fighting through the struggles will lead to success.
In your relationships there are struggles. You have to be compassionate, caring, understanding, selfless, supportive, loving and able to stick with it if you want your relationships to work. Any married couple can tell you that it takes work to make a marriage work. As soon as the honeymoon is over, that’s when the work begins.
Ra ising children
is a struggle too. In order to be a good parent you must always set good examples, be supportive, authoritative, loving, encouraging and present in your children’s lives. They will disappoint you and sometimes let you down but if you fight through the struggles, you’ll have success.
So as I continue on this 90 journey I’m going to Embrace the Struggle and know that it will only last for a season. Since I’ve decided to do this, I know that I’m committed and if I stick with it and do everything that is required, I WILL have success because that is the Beachbody motto: Decide, Commit, Succeed!
To YOUR Success,
