I’m a cycling instructor. I’m not a fanatic, but I enjoy it. What I don’t look forward to is getting up early. The classes I teach start around 5:15am, which means my alarm clock startles me out of a blissful slumber around 4:30 in the morning. Not even roosters are awake at that hour.
But, you see, it’s a beautiful time of day. Birds sing quite gleefully at that hour, and the pre-dawn darkness is very peaceful. If the truth be told, if I didn’t have students waiting for me at the gym, the chances are very good that I wouldn’t actually roll out of bed and experience all of the goodness. But, once I’m up and active, I’m so glad that I did. It sets my day off on the right foot.
It’s really that way with so many things in life. It may be scary or require a lot of energy to start something, but think of how great it will be once you get it done. Your life may be enriched beyond measure. Is there something you’ve been thinking about doing, waiting for “just the right time”? The time is NOW! Just get out there and get it started!! And then your battle is more than halfway over.
