Overcoming Excuses For Not Working Out

Excuses and overcoming them

Excuses, whining and Sacking up

As much as I love California there is one thing I immediately noticed, people whine, make every possible excuse and bitch a lot. While it may not be strictly a California issue, it sure is a lot more prevalent here. If someone does not get a job or promotion, it is because they are African/Asian/Hispanic/White. Not because they had a poor interview or lacked experience. If someone is out of shape or… a little plump, it is because of genetics or because of the evil fast food industry. Not because of their total lack of any physical movement and inhalation of junk/fast/fating food. If you fail a test it because the professor hates you and was out to get you, it had nothing to do with you trying to cram 4 chapters of organic chemistry the night before. I think you all get my point. So why all the excuses?

Simple. People do not want to be held accountable for their failures, rather they need a scapegoat, because heaven forbid, they are at fault. Of course if anything goes right, people are quick to praise them self, however it is not a double standard as people will use everything and anything to place the blame on.

Another personal gripe I have is how everyone takes everything for granted. "So why are you in such a bad mood," I ask flustered friend of mine. "I didn't get a chance to eat anything." I want to slap him right there. Just because he did not get his daily Starbucks frappuccino and low-carb burger, he has a perfectly valid excuse for acting like an asshat to everyone. Obviously I am blind to see that he has it much worse then the starving kids in third-world countries how dare those kids and their infomercials when here at home my friend didn't get his meal. So where exactly am I going with this article. Simply put, to grow a pair and sac up. Don't have time to workout? I am taking 17 units this quarter, have two jobs, an eight hour internship, volunteer for a clinic on Saturday mornings and still make time to get drunk with my frat and make it to the gym. Sure it means cutting a few hours off the television and waking up a little early. "I am too skinny/fat, and so are my parents there is no point in working out." That is B.S.! If you are happy the way your body is then kudos to you, but do not pull the genetics excuse on me. All around the world people are doing extraordinary feats, look at Lance Armstrong, I personally am not a Tour De France fan whatsoever but the guy isawesome. Look at all that he has accomplished while overcoming countless obstacles. So what separates the likes of Lance and others who are able rise among the ranks. NOTHING, ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING. We all have the potential to do TREMENDOUS things in our lifetime. Some of you will be world class athletes, others lawyers, doctors any thing you can imagine. Others will live with your parents and perhaps bag groceries and one day move on up to fetching the carts in the parking lot. You are your biggest fan and critic, which means you, can push your self as far as you want and hold you back. Some of us are able to look past our weaknesses and push through to reach our goals, others will keep passing the blame and hope for hand me downs. I hope each and every one of you got something out of my random rant. To finish, part of a famous/motivational speech I have on my wall:

"Winning is not a sometime thing, it's an all-the-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately so is losing."

- Vince Lombardi

I hope you all make the right habits.
