If I had a dollar for every time I said I would change up my diet because my health was far more important than anything, I could have bought a brand spanking new car cash seven years ago.

If I had a dollar for every time I suddenly got a new motivation to workout, because some man broke my heart or I felt I had something to prove, I could have paid off my college tuition in five years.

If I had a dollar for every time I have given an in-kind donation to my local fitness center (meaning I pay, but never go) I could have paid off my churches “Building Fund” by myself in 3 years.

If I had a dollar for every excuse I tried to turn into a valid reason for not working out and actually convinced myself it was true, I would have enough money to meet my personal savings goal for a year.

If I had a dollar for every time I made a New Year’s resolution and by New Year’s Day, I had already broken that promise ….now we are talking millionaire status on this one! LOL!

If I had a dollar for every time I lost a few pounds and was on top of the world, but when the weight stop falling off like I anticipated… I QUIT!

Although the comparisons I used were exaggerated, my level of concern for identifying the signs of a poor and bankrupt state of mind when it comes to self-image is the furthest thing from BS!

Be encouraged; don’t treat fitness like a failed financial venture or a loss in the accounting books of life with no chance of restructuring, take it in stride as a learning curve experience and get back to it!

As long as the breath of life is breathed into your body, you have a chance to make a difference and make a return on your investment of yourself. Limit your frivolous spending on old excuses and poor reasons why you can’t do something and roll your action assets into your “401 Capable” and allow your fitness finances to flourish!

Lesson for the day… “Only YOU can lower the debt ceiling of doubt on your fitness failures and rise above them. It’s up to YOU to decide to invest in yourself and become rich in health and spirit. Be careful not to rob yourself by spending priceless time and dollars on doubting your determination to make it happen this time around!  YOU are going to speak forward progress and financial fitness gains as it relates to your health. You will be amazed what can happen when your fitness assets grow simply because you shifted your attitude towards action instead of making EXCUSES!

So what are you waiting for? Get started on investing in yourself today! Purchase the stock while it’s still hot!
