There is No Magic pill

If you want to achieve any goal in life, you will need to do the work to make it happen. There is no magic pill. I am continually surprised at how many people think they will magically have enough to retire, or that the weight will just melt away, or that their health will improve if they just do this one thing. I guess they do it because it’s easier than the truth.

It takes days, months, and years of a commitment to put one foot in front of the other and work towards achieving a goal. You will fall off the wagon sometimes and have setbacks. But, this is how I trained for a marathon when I could not run a half mile without stopping. It’s how I saved enough that we are on track for early retirement. It’s thousands of big and small decisions based on wanting this rather than that.
