Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.
- Sam Ewing, humorist
As soon as I read this, I knew that this is the only thing keeping me from advancing in my life (weight loss, education, a better job...) And my father had ALWAYS told me to "do what you say and say what you do". Now that he has passed away, I feel an even greater need to follow his words every day. It will be very hard for me because "I can wait to go back to school until NEXT semester", "or I'll just work out tomorrow" is the normal thought process for me and it will take a while to break, but I will prove my trustworthiness to my self and others and honor my father's memory by changing this negative habit.
