The reality is, nothing worth having comes easy.
This is because the process and feeling of achievement is actually the most satisfying thing.
Notice how a lot of people who are incredibly wealthy through business are also very tight/sensible when it comes to spending and handouts.
People who win the lottery go broke (generally speaking.) If someone waved a magic wand and it turned you into the best shape of your life, you wouldn’t stay there, you wouldn’t have learnt what it requires to get to that point, you won’t have picked up any good habits and most likely you’d get greedy, suddenly that would no longer make you happy and you’d want something else.
The process is the fun part, it’s the incredibly frustrating part where you pick up injuries, you feel weak, you feel progress is too slow, you repeat the same mistakes.
But it’s also where you achieve, you hit PBs in the gym, you get closer to your target through work, you develop better habits, you meet like minded people and eventually if you stick it out long enough you’ll achieve what you set out for, if you did it right, you’ll probably end up wanting to work harder and achieve more.
Stop talking the talk and get to work, if you’re several months and years into your journey and you’re still talking about the end result; being skinny, being lean, being strong, being huge.... you haven’t picked it up yet, get stuck into the details and learn to love the entire process of working and getting better.
