Bite Off More Than You Can Chew!

Opening a gym was a huge goal I had set for myself.  When I felt the time was right I had to step forward, take the risk, and go for it.  I had to do it myself.  No one was going to do it for me!  And honestly, at first it felt that I had bitten off more than I could chew!  I had to be persistent.  I had to be brave.  I learned a lot in the process.  And now, I have achieved the goal I set for myself and am living my dream!  I HAD to bite off more than I could chew to achieve this!

If I can achieve this goal, ANYONE can achieve their dreams and goals they hold in their heart.  I am constantly encouraging my clients to go for their dreams....not just in the gym but in life in general.  Don't do anything that doesn't require faith.  The key to momentum is always having something to look forward to in faith.  We live by faith, or we don't really live at all.  Either we venture or we vegetate.  What's needed is more people who specialize in the impossible.  "This year's success is last year's impossibility." (Sherwood Eddy) 

You can only accomplish in proportion to what you attempt.  The reason so little is accomplished is because so little is attempted.  Never say never.  You have to think big to be big.  The fact is it's fun to do the impossible!  So look at they can be!  You don't tap the resources of God until you attempt the seemingly impossible.  Risk is part of God's plan for you.  Progress always involves risk.  You can't steal second base with your foot on first.

Look for ways to flex your "risk muscle."  Everyone has a risk muscle, and you keep it in proper shape by experimenting and trying new things. "People who take risks are the people you'll lose against." (John Scully)  A great ship always asks for deep water.  When you dare for nothing you should hope for nothing.  God wants us to bite off more than we can chew, to live by faith not by sight.  The goals and dreams you hold in your heart are NOT impossible!  Take the first step towards it.  Take the risk.  Determine in your heart that you can do it.  Bite off more than you can chew!  That's when you will experience life that is full and fulfilling!
