We often fall into the trap of thinking that progress is difficult. That we must completely change ourselves to achieve our goals. That without drastic change, there is no progress. The reality, however, is quite different. Progress begins with information. By identifying that there is room for improvement (*there is always room for improvement*), one can take small steps, however insignificant these steps may seem, to bettering oneself mentally and physically. Being informed gives us the option to take the necessary action to improve the quality of our lives.
Unfortunately, we are often informed but are misled into thinking that shortcuts are an easy way out of our problems. Although we are bombarded with the idea that a magic product is often the solution, the reality is this: Your willingness to see improvement must be matched with equal levels of hard work and effort. In other words, if you want to be able to run faster, you must be willing to push yourself that much harder. If you want to be able to jump higher, you must be willing to train your mind and body that much harder. There is no substitute for HARD WORK and hard work is a process that begins with a single step.
