Just Show Up
The reason why people do not see their dreams realized is because it's hard to show up, day in and day out.
For some stupid reason, I decided to show up at the gym every weekday at 6 AM for a program called "Insanity". This program is around 30 minutes of death. Living in Ohio at the time in the month of January, I remember mornings in where sub zero temperature would penetrate my skin as I opened the door of my apartment to walk to our local gym. Feeling like death, I would try to think about anything besides the fact that my nostril hairs were frozen, most of time it didn't work.
Arriving at the gym, I plastered a smile on my face as I shook the hands of the others that sacrificed their bodies for purpose of health. After warming up, the work out pumped so much adrenaline into my body, I often forgot the pain and the work it took just to be present.
For those 60 days, I didn't miss one day. After the fact, I realized that the hardest part was showing face. Something in me knew that the breakthrough was one on the other side of consistently showing up.
