We have all heard the phrases about excuses; "everyone has one" "they're just about as useful as..." and so on. But so many times I hear people making excuses on why they don't have time or why they can't take charge of their health and start living to their maximum potential. I was fortunate to be in a church service yesterday at Watermark Church in Dallas and heard a very powerful message from Pastor Todd Wagner. And the phrase that stuck with me was... "Your excuses are not unique, they are actually very common...". Obviously I am going to apply this a little differently in this blog than he did in his Sunday message. But how true is that! I hear the same excuses all the time. The kids are starting school. We have this vacation coming up. Work right now is just really busy. Your excuses are not unique I hear them daily! Everyone is busy! I am busy! But the point is disease doesn't care how busy you are, sickness doesn't wait to fit in to your schedule. You have to make time NOW or it can sneak up on you later.
We use excuse to justify our current situation. In other words, so we can feel better about ourselves. But this can be very dangerous. We can justify and make excuses all we want for why we are in our current situation. But at the end of the day, that doesn't change the situation we are in. Another phrase I took from Wagner yesterday was, "One of the roles of a leader is to give a reality check". So maybe today that is exactly what you need to do. Give yourself a honest evaluation of your current health status. What's it going to be like in 10 years if you keep down the current path? Better or worse? Get a baseline and take action. I challenge you to move today not tomorrow.
