Chances are that at some point you have wondered what to do next. You contemplate various approaches and try to figure out what is going to work for you. Maybe you bounce from one idea to another because you “just don't see the results”? Have you paralyzed yourself with the fear of failure? Read on.
This is the person who changes their approach almost as often as they change their clothing. They read something new on the internet and they are off to try it out. A few days later they read something else, decide the first thing “isn't working” and give the next thing a try. This vicious cycle never seems to end. The Bouncer jumps from approach to approach and they never make any real progress because they are not giving anything a chance to work.
We are a society that expects instant gratification. Hard work is alien to us. When we start to eat right we expect the fat to just fall off our bodies. None of this happens.
You have to go for it. You need to submerge yourself in an approach and let it work for you. Nothing happens without some effort, so go for it!
The Fear of Failure:
This person is so afraid to fail that they do nothing at all to progress forward. Set some goals. Decide that changes will be made. Start going for it because when you do, you will see there is nothing to be afraid of.
Success comes in baby steps. You are not going to get anywhere if you don't ever start the journey. Get going!
You have what it takes to succeed at this transformation stuff. You just have to dig in and do it. Go for it! Get the job started and the rest will come easy.

Today was another PACE cardio session, but this time on the elipptical trainer. 24 minutes of very high intensity training. I felt great and I listened to a few smaller podcasts of radio shows I enjoy while going at it.
Thought for the Day:
Sometimes something seems improbable but it is really the best approach. Keep an open mind and go for it.
