Success is the result of small steps taken each day. The sum total of all that you do shows in every accomplishment. One of the reasons success is so sweet is because it is not something that is easy to attain. Success is the result of your desire, your vision, your hard work and perhaps most importantly, your perseverance. Is there something you would like to accomplish? Are you ready to commit? Do you dare to succeed?
The definition of success is different for everyone, especially women. From making your family happy to being healthy and in control, women find success in the areas where they can make a difference. Women have come a long way in dictating their own success and their definition of success is always changing. But that is true for most accomplishments; once achieved, we usually aim for something greater.
Taking your fitness level to a new high is a great example of success. Each step you take, each goal you make, each record you break, brings you closer to your goal and makes you successful each and every day. You only need to look at where you started to notice how very far you have come.
If you have ever tried to lose weight and lost the battle, this time will be different. Make a promise to yourself to not give up. If you don’t give up, you will succeed. There is no other alternative. Just keep trying and your diet and exercise routine will become easier. Cravings for food will go away. Muscle soreness will alleviate. You will become slimmer, trimmer, stronger and fit. Just don’t give up.
Many of us are as afraid of success as we are of failure. It seems like such a crazy thing to say. But it is true. We hesitate to commit to a fitness program because we have failed in the past and are afraid of failing again. But what is failing but a misstep in your road to success? Failing is only a pitfall, not a life sentence. Each day, each hour, each moment, you have the power to succeed. Don’t be afraid of failure and never be afraid of success. Just don’t give up.
Success is measured by each step that we take. It is a journey, not a windfall. Perhaps that is why we appreciate it so much, once we reach it. My hope for you is that you make a commitment to follow your dreams and take the steps necessary to reach your goals for your own personal success.
