“It’s Never Too Late…”

You can call it a tagline.

Or a catchphrase.

Or even a mantra.

I call it my life — at least my adult life. The years when I finally grew a pair and decided to take risks to better my life.

Oh hell, to better my vision, my perception, of me.

It’s Never Too Late…to Stop the Talk

There is no one on this planet who is harder on me than me. But for too long there was very little about me being hard on me that was positive in any way. The old me didn’t like who I saw looking back at me in the mirror and what I thought of myself.

That me spent entirely too much time talking about things I wanted to accomplish, but little to no time actually accomplishing them. I was all talk and no action. I was full of sh*t. So I can easily spot a bullshi**er.

(Check out the latest episode of “The Healthy Bodies, Healthy Families Podcast,” where I share a story about a recent experience with a then-prospective client, on Spotify, Apple and <a href="http://<iframe src="https://castbox.fm/app/castbox/player/id4616368/id435743422?v=8.22.11&autoplay=0" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="500">Castbox).

But they all have something in common. They talk a great game. But they often stay on the sidelines when it’s time to turn into action. Actions speak louder than words. It’s a classic cliché, but it rings more true today than it has in a long time.

We as a society talk too much. Some of us are nastier than others, but we all have something to say — mostly about politics these days. (Don’t worry, I’m not going to talk politics. I know nothing good come of that. Just bear with me for a moment).

It’s more important for to be right than to do right. Too many of us spend too much time trying to convince others about this or that. But they fool themselves about how they feel about themselves and their life, and what they should do to change things for the better.

It’s Never Too Late…to Get Results

I was a classic example of that kind of person – for years.

The thought of getting fit and healthy sounds good as the idea rattles around in their head.

“I can see it already,” they say to themselves. “I’m going to eat healthy and work out. I’m going to lose weight and get in shape.” Then they vow, “I’m going to stick to it this time.”

And in some cases, they contact a trainer in hopes of taking an even bigger step forward in the process.

They tell that trainer everything that trainer wants to here (expects to hear, really). But deep down, they don’t believe what they’re saying. And that’s OK, not everyone is ready to transform their lives. That’s why not everyone does it.

That’s why I waited until I was in my late 30s to finally take control of my life through health and fitness.

I bullshi**ed too much. I fooled myself every time.

But “It’s Never Too Late…”

The only way to make it happen is to take action. And that’s not talk. That’s 100% fact.
