Stop Allowing “I Don’t Have Enough Time” To Limit Your Goals

I have zero tolerance for stories and excuses. That’s part of the reason why I’ve solidified myself as a trainer and seen results with my clients. I can’t stand when people complain because they don’t have time to work out, but they have time to binge watch netflix or sleep an extra hour a day. If you have time to do these other things but want to lose weight, then there’s an internal conflict in that.

We have to make the time if we don’t have it. If you don’t have the ambition to create health in your life and you have fulfillment in other things, that’s fine. I’m not here to tell you how to be happy. You’re here to take your health to the next level. People listen to me because they’re in a dark place or they’re really motivated to take it to the next level. 

Understand Your Priorities

When you say you don’t have time, what that really means is working out and meal prepping just isn’t as important as the other things. There are 168 hours every week; it only takes three 30-45 minute workouts to change your physiology and generate health. That’s a radically insignificant amount of time to practice health.

Not making yourself a priority is the reason you feel like you’re stretching yourself thin. You are number one. Saying that you want something so bad and not being motivated to achieve it is a conflict you have to overcome internally. It’s all about you vs. you. Will you be self-aware enough to put yourself as a priority first?You need to realize that it’s not about the time; it’s about the priorities. This transcends fitness to not getting a job promotion because you’re the first one to leave work every day. How can you complain about not getting the promotion when you don’t put in the most work?

Accepting Truth

The truth is harsh, but I tell it because I genuinely care about you. At Burn Boot Camp we’re growing every single day so I hear this all the time. I listen and take the collective struggles we have and bring them to you. I’m not saying you struggle with making time to work out. I’m saying that there’s something in your life you say you don’t have the time for. Do you really not have the time? Or, is it a lack of priority?

I know you can crush all your goals and achieve all your dreams, but I can’t stand by and let excuses pass right in front of me without breaking your patterns and asking you to stop. Break your own patterns by anticipating these habits. You have to reallocate your priorities and make the time. We only get 24 hours in a day. How are you going to use them?
