I have dealt with enough people in life during my career as a LEO, and manager of multimillion dollar business properties, to know that people respond, favorably, to different types of communication.
One sometimes needs to be a very good communicator to bring the best out of people, and bring out their potential, because sometimes some people are not able to do this on their own accord.
Lyle's approach in the article, suites me though. I want the bare bones truth, and not a lot of fluff--this gives me the tools I need to see the end of the winding road in my journey, and allows for certain destinations (goals), though it may not be the final destination in the journey of life (additional goals as I move along).
Being in the military years ago, taught me some wonderful things. One thing it taught me is that we can do more than.....we...think we are able to, especially when pushed by another (say, a DI, or trainer). But, in life.....what if this person you are depending on to motivate you doesn't show up or is lost somehow, as you work through the complexities of life?
Well, there is one body that is always there, ready and willing......yours....
Its just that the light must be on upstairs.
Sometimes a fitness goal is like bobbing for apples. Sometimes you get it, and sometimes we do not. Nothing wrong, keep on rocking with seeking and searching, and one will get it. It's when you take your head out of the water, when its over.
