How Long Would you Wait?

Let’s pretend for a moment.

I’m offering you the body of your dreams, however that may look.

You have to wait for it; you can’t have it right now.

So how long would you wait?

1 month? 1 year? 10 years?

Only you know the number you have in your head. Although I’m sure your answer did include “I would wait”

But wait, there’s more…

What if I offered you the body of your dreams, the lifestyle of your dreams, all the confidence, freedom, success and happiness you could possibly imagine.

How long would you wait for that?

1 month? 1 year? 10 years?

Only you know the number you have in your head. Although I’m sure your answer did include “I would wait”

So why have you given up waiting already then?

Everything you’re dreaming of and working for is within reach

Did you plateau on your workout? Did you stop preparing your meals because you were short of time? Was it easier to go out to the bar with your buddies than it was to hit the weights? Are you really happy sacrificing your future for instant gratification?

This is a short post, however the message I am conveying here is short and simple…

Sacrifice today for tomorrows’ betterment.


You have to adopt that investor mindset.

You can either endure the pain today – on your terms, or the pain tomorrow when you realise you gave up when you should’ve kept pushing, the real pain in this scenario is looking back on your life knowing you could have achieved greatness when instead you decided to take the easy way out.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
