It’s rare to come across someone who doesn’t want to be in really awesome shape.
That wouldn’t love to be able to crank out several pull ups in a row.
Or run a sub 5 minute mile.
Or eat healthy foods, effortlessly.
Or have a rocking body they don’t mind showing off at the beach.
These people are everywhere.
They talk about how nice it would be, how only if they had better genes, or more willpower, or more money for healthier food or a gym membership… then they would be fit. They’d have the body of their dreams, and the athleticism needed to conquer the world.
And that’s it. These people are talkers. They talk all day long, but never take any action to change themselves or their situation.
They make excuses.
People like this will never change the world.
Action-oriented people, on the other hand, assess their situation and take matters into their own hands.
They know life isn’t going to be handed to them.
If a doer wants to reach a goal bad enough, she’ll work as hard as she possibly can to get there.
Be able to do 10 chin ups in a row by the end of the month? She’ll practice her jumping and kipping pull ups day and night until she gets there.
Walk down the beach without feeling self-conscious? She’ll gather the willpower to eat clean and work out consistently till she gets there.
Not blessed with stellar family genes? She’ll work her ass off to be the best she can be, because it’s important to her and she won’t let anyone tell her what she can’t do.
Doers don’t have an easy life. They’re constantly faced with roadblocks, and forced to overcome obstacles most of us could never dream of facing.
But it’s worth it, if you ask me.
Because the doers are the ones who will do big things. They’ll make a dent in the world. They’ll accomplish their dreams.
And more importantly, they’ll inspire others to do the same.
It’s up to you
It’s a world full of talkers and doers, and you have to choose which to be.
You can choose a life of excuses, letting others tell you what isn’t possible.
Or you can take matters into your own hands. You can take action. You can treat the world as your oyster.
So are you a talker or a doer? Which do you want to be?
It’s your choice. But you have to decide before it’s too late.
The world is waiting.
