I've spent a lot of time over the years hoping for how I wanted my life to be different, but I never really managed to put in the work to have that happen. 

Something changed this time around - maybe it was hearing the little motivational throw-aways from Autumn in the 21 Day Fix videos (It only works if you do!) or all of the posts and support of the other members in that first challenge, but I get it now. Just Do It - Duh! Nike had it figured out along time ago but I guess I'm just slow.

I finally get that sitting on the couch watching The Biggest Loser and hoping to get in better shape is not helping at all, but every minute of exercise I do, or every good decision I make in my nutrition DOES help. This is actually an amazing breakthrough that I can apply to every aspect of my life. I can't hope the kids behave better; I have to do the work with them to make that happen. I can't hope my coaching business grows; I have to do the work to make that happen.

Have you had this breakthrough yet, or are you still hoping instead of working?
