They have this saying about getting knocked down 6 times and getting back up 7.
I’m not a big fan of it to be honest, but I have to admit it does point to a truth. That truth is that everyone at one point or another gets knocked on their ass.
At the present moment I’m on the tail end of recovering from a cold that completely derailed my November challenge for 7 days. So yes, even though I have all of the motivation and passion in the world, I too get knocked down from time to time.
Everyone gets knocked down. You will get knocked down. No one in immune.
It’s going to be hard, it’s going to suck and it’s going to test your commitment and resolve. The only difference between the champions and those who lose out is that champions get back up, dust themselves off and get back after it. It’s a myth that winners don’t get knocked down. Trust me, they get their ass handed to them often enough. It just doesn’t seem like it because their knock downs are temporary.
Bruce Lee had a debilitating back injury that left him unable to walk for nearly a year.
The singer Adel just had to cancel the rest of her tour due to damage to her vocal cords.
Martha Steward went to jail for insider trading
Donald Trump once was millions of dollars in the hole
Lance Armstrong once was so weak with cancer he had trouble even walking let alone ride a bike
The world is filled with champions who have been knocked down. It would actually be hard to find a champion who hasn’t been knocked down.
It saddens me when someone hits a set back, and they never get back on track. They get sick, injured or their schedule goes insane for a few weeks. Hey it happens to the best and there is no fault in it. But when the time had passed and it’s time to get back on track they never got the momentum back.
It’s sad. So very sad. So much potential ended up just evaporating into thin air.
The beauty of our methods here at the Red Delta Project is that they offer you the best chance of getting back up when you hit a stumbling block. Having complex and expensive diet and exercise strategies just makes it much harder to get back on track. But with B.W.B.E and diet free healthy eating, you can get back to your fitness pursuits with minimal effort.
The key is to start small and let the momentum build. Just get down and bang out some push ups or make a conscious choice to have a healthy breakfast. You don’t have to jump right back up to what you were once doing when you got knocked down. Simply start doing something, anything and the momentum will build like a wildfire.
If you ever stumble and need help getting back on track I do hope you’ll drop me a line. There is no reason at all to let a cold or a busy month at work keep you from pursuing your fitness dreams.
