Be Stubborn!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, July 03, 2013



Have you ever felt like that on your journey? When it comes to working out or taking the healthy eating option, how many times have you said, "I don't want to"? I know I have. I know I have often! We have the easy options that we are all to familiar with. The easy option to sit on the couch and not put in the work. The easy option to grab that bag of chips and not slice and dice veggies for 30 minutes. We've taken that easier route for years! Taking that "easier" route is being stubborn! The "I don't want to" attitude is being stubborn!



The beautiful thing is, we do have an option. Why not say, "Not now! Not today!"? Be stubborn in the other direction. That was the old you who was grabbing at the door frame, kicking and screaming when a workout was pulling you! That was the old you who was fighting tooth and nail with you to eat that "junk" instead of taking the healthy option! That was the old you!

You are the NEW YOU!

Be stubborn in the other direction! You hold on to that door frame when your old habits are pulling you away from a workout! You fight tooth and nail to eat that healthy stuff as the "junk" tries to pull you away! We have that choice to be stubborn in a positive way. We can be stubborn against our bad habits! BE STUBBORN!



You know what you have to do to get where you want to go. Be as stubborn in your pursuit of your goal as you were in the path that led you to this point! You are here for a reason, so be stubborn in achieving your goals!

Embrace Your Stubbornness

Embrace Your Possibilities

Good Day Sparkville

    One of my favorite sayings is 'It's all in the delivery.' meaning it's HOW something is said that is vital.

For me, You have made the concept of 'being stubborn' go from acutely negative to ragingly positive!

I LOVE IT!!

    I am stubborn 99.9% of the time. Today is Independence Day. I am having a few chips and dip and a piece of cake. I have allowed for it for a whole week and I deserve it. Back to being stubborn tomorrow and swimming for an extra 30 minutes.

emoticon blog. I like the way you showed how to be good stubborn and the "old' stubborn. emoticon
