Start Today — Your Future Self Will Thank You
Take a few steps back from all of your responsibilities, think about yourself and your goals. What can you do today that you will thank yourself for in the future? The decisions you make today are the accomplishments of tomorrow. What you do today, you will reap the benefits (or face the consequences of) in the future. Today is your opportunity to make the decisions that will benefit your future.
To help see the impact of the decisions you make today, think about where you are now and where you could be right now if your past looked different. It is important not to dwell on this and put the past in the past; however, you can use this as a learning tool and resource to inspire your future. The earlier you begin, the faster you will arrive at where you want to be.
Also, consider a recent goal or accomplishment you have achieved — what did you need to do in the past to get to where you are today? Perhaps you finally got a raise or the job of your dreams. Maybe you are now eating healthier, going on a vacation you have been saving for, or earning the degree you have worked towards. You had to start somewhere to achieve your goals. Now, look at where you are and how far you have come.
One of the best tools you can use to help motivate yourself to start working towards your goals today is visualization. Close your eyes and imagine what your future could look like if you do something today that will impact your future. Use this to motivate and inspire yourself. With the right mindset, you can do it!
When things get tough, remember that it is not about the results you can see today, but about what you will achieve in the future. Things that are worth it in the end often take time, effort, and patience — fitness is no exception.

Change is a gradual process and does not happen overnight, but you must have faith in yourself and your abilities. Keep working towards your goals, even when you do not see the changes you anticipate or would like to see right away. The journey is not always fun or pretty, but in the end you will look back and be proud.
