When no one is home you don’t need to close the bathroom door.
When no one is watching they wouldn’t ever know if you stopped at 16 pushups instead of 20.
When no one is reading you don’t need to make another blog post.
When no one is grading the assignment you don’t need to try hard.
When no one is responsible for you you have no one to disappoint.
The problem is that most of the time a personal trainer, a reader, a teacher and a parent won’t be there. It’s up to you to choose yourself. Because after all, you’re not doing it for them. You’re doing it for you.
You don’t have a trainer just to please them. You have one to get in shape.
You don’t have a blog just to fit in. You have one because you have something unique to say.
You don’t have a teacher just to get a report card. You have one because you want to learn.
You’re not here just for self-indulgence. You’re here to make the world a better place.
Remember why you’re doing this. There may not be anyone else in the room, but that’s what makes this journey so tough. Choose yourself. It’s worth it.
