Not being able to do something a certain way, does NOT mean that you CAN’T! It all comes down to, “How bad do you want it?”
It means you modify it until you can do it right. And ditch your ego and realize that some things, you may NEVER do perfect! With my spinal fusion, degenerative disk disease, and arthritis, do you REALLY think that every rep of every exercise looks EXACTLY like it does when it is performed by someone with a body that doesn’t have those issues? NO! And I am 100% aware that there will be some things I will ALWAYS have to modify!
Do you think when I say I run, that I mean like a gazelle? NOPE! Sometimes, you would swear that I am running so slow that I may in fact actually be going backwards. But it is MY version of running and I can deal with that! I may be the last one to cross the finish line, but I still take pride in the fact that I toed the line to start with!
Some of you say I am an inspiration to you, knowing that I have overcome so much, but then say that You CAN’T do the same??? It is really up to you! Let the fact that I KNOW my body’s limitations and refuse to let them hold me back be what inspires you! Let the fact that I do struggle, but I keep pushing forward, be what inspires that You CAN do the same if you only BELIEVE you can!
If you TRULY want something, you will figure out a way to move forward with it.
You will find every excuse in the book to NOT do it!
MAKE today GREAT!!!!
