Why Are We SO Afraid To Fail?

I have talked with so many brides who will not start to change their lifestyles because they are afraid of failing.  I understand that failure is a very real thing that can lead to seriously intense emotions.  The problem is, if you never try and take that first step, how do you know that you will fail?

We are all afraid to start a new job, buy a new car, get married or make the decision to start a family, but all of those things come with risks.  Life is about taking risks and seeing where it will take you.  You have no idea what you are capable of until you put your mind to it.  

I hear people say all the time that working out is HARD and it is, but what doesn’t challenge you, doesn’t change you!  I chose to do a P90X/Insanity hybrid after not being active at all for about 2 years (I had danced my entire life, but then gave it up because it was too expansive & took up too much time, even though I loved it more than anything).  After I was finished, I would lay down on the floor basically hyperventilating with sweat dripping all over the place.  Yes, it was disgusting.  Yes, I was sore. And yes, I couldn’t do everything and needed to take a lot of breaks and make some modifications.  But I NEVER gave up!  I kept going every day and eventually got better.  You can’t be afraid to give something a try, what’s the worst that could happen?  You may have to take some more water breaks and push pause a few more times to catch your breath, but what are the rewards at the end of the day?

You can look back and say, “I did that! I completed the program”!  You can show off your new body, wear clothes that have been hiding in your closet for a long time (or gorgeous new clothes!).  You can go bikini shopping (gasp!) and feel comfortable walking around in one, letting people see your new hot body.  The possibilities are endless!  When you feel good about your body, it will show in every aspect of your life!  Other people will see your beauty radiating from within and your positive body image will reflect on others.  You can help end the trend of obesity just by saying “YES, I want to face my fear of failure and prove myself wrong!”. 
There is no room for excuses!

So make the decision today to change your life forever!  There is no better time than now to commit to getting fit!
