Pam in Georgia


Medusa:  This is boring.


Me: Yup, it can be boring.

It's also boring to sit on the sidelines and not dance because I'm worried about my jiggle.

It's boring to not participate because I'm self-conscious.

It's boring to wear the same old bulky clothing that fits rather than all the cute stuff in the closet.

Oh my goodness is it boring to wake up every-single-morning and think about my weight, and my discomfort, yet not do a thing to change these circumstances.  


"A spectacular achievement is always preceded by boring preparation."


Famous Athletes- they start out excellent in their sport, and they practice, practice, practice. How many practice pitches has NY Yankee pitcher Tanaka thrown?

Musicians- How many hours a day does Yo-Yo Ma practice? How many other things in his life did he miss because he was committed to boring practice?

Writers- They all say that the first draft is garbage. The magic comes in staring at the computer screen for hours, continuing to sit through the writer's block, and just write something down. It can feel tedious and never-ending.

A kid learning to ride a bike- how much effort went into getting on the bike and riding smoothly? How long did a parent hold the seat and jog beside the child? How many times did the child fall down, get hurt, and get brave enough to get back on the bike?


If this was easy, everyone would do it. Everyone would be thin. Everyone would be wearing bikinis. If this was easy, there wouldn't be thousands of diets out there. 


I've got to do what others will not so that I can have what others will not.

Following this plan PLUS time = Success.  

It's that simple. Follow the plan. Quit your whining and attitude of self-defeat.  

We are most proud of the things that are difficult, require attention, patience, dedication, and yes...all the boring preparation.
