It is often distressing to come across people who complain just about everything! Nothing is good enough for them! It is even more stressful to live with a person whose job is to complain about everything instead of finding the way out of any ugly situation that pops up its ugly head.
We have all heard these statements before: “I can’t do this!” “This is too difficult!” “How do I know which one is better?” “Can you do that?” And the whining can go on and on forever.
But thank goodness; there are always true life stories that debunks all complains that people make in order to opt out of even trying to make an attempt to do anything.
Life is not easy, everybody knows that. There is nothing that everyone can do easily, without a lot of sacrifice and hard work. Some people sleep very easily, no matter where they find themselves. In fact, I have a friend who can fall asleep even while jogging. It may sound funny, but it is true. Whereas, there are people who find it so hard to fall asleep, and for that reason, result to the use of drugs to help them to go to sleep.
No matter what the problem may be, the KEY is to FIND the RIGHT KEY(S)! If you can’t do something, find the reason why you can’t do that thing. Then the next step is to find alternative ways to do it so you can get the expected results. You should not just give up without finding the key to the solution of your problem! Remember, there is always a solution. The only thing you need to do is to find the key(s) so you can get to the right solution and obtain the desired result(s).
A couple of years ago, I looked at myself and saw that I have got excess weight, compared with my height. I had a pot belly, like a pregnant woman who can’t just give birth, after along pregnancy. So I thought to myself: “I am a man, so why should I have a belly like a pregnant woman? I need to do something about it.” It was really embarrassing to go to the beach and bare my pot-belly figure to the whole world to see.
So I decided to lose some of the excess baggage I was carrying in my body. I thought there was a magic wand, like that of Harry Potter, to use to make things happen in a flash, but there is no such thing in real life. I found out in my research, that if I wanted to get rid of my bulging stomach, all I had to do is to lose weight and then it will affect the rest of my body. For this reason, I thought the best way to lose weight is to go to a fitness center, and I did! I signed up with a fitness center for one year. However, I found no difference with regards to my weight BEFORE and AFTER signing up with the fitness center for a whole year. So I thought to myself: “why waste money on something that won’t work? Find something else to do that will work.”
I didn’t give up though with my quest to shed the unwanted body load I was carrying. As I was searching for answers, I came upon a news article on the internet, which said that in order to maintain the desired body weight; the Japanese people have a philosophy which goes: that you should never eat until you are completely full before you stop. Rather, you should stop eating when you are three-quarters full, no matter what your appetite craves. So I realized that I have been overeating, because, prior to reading that article, I had been eating until I could eat no more. But that was just one of the keys for losing weight, and I needed to find the other keys that were missing.
Then finally, I found the other missing keys: eating the right foods, exercising in open places, (like in the parks) and having a good night sleep. I had been missing all those things, and that was the reason why I didn’t succeed in my journey to the land of weight control.
After years of unsuccessful attempts to lose weight, I finally lost weight in just a couple of weeks, and now my protruding belly is almost as flat as a level ground!
You see, for years I didn’t lose weight no matter how hard I tried to get it down. However, when I found the right ways and implemented them properly, I lost almost 10 kg (22 lbs) in just a couple of weeks.
What made the difference is that I found the keys to unlock the door to the land of weight control. For over one year now, I have maintained this new-found weight, and I am making sure that I don’t go back again to square one, as so many people do after losing their excess body weight. You can do that too if you follow these guidelines.
- First, never give up on your quest to shed your excess body weight. Know that there is always a way to getting the desired results, if you persist in your endeavor. There should be no room for pessimism.
- Next, find the right key(s) that will help you to open the door(s) to the land of success. You can never cook a delicious meal if you don’t have the right ingredients. Find the right way(s) that will lead you to the right destination.
- Finally, use the key(s) properly to get to your final destination. You may have the right keys to success; however, if you don’t use them the way you are supposed to, you might not get anywhere. If you don’t use them in a sensible way, you might even get lost along the way, and you will never reach the goal of which you have worked so hard for.
In conclusion, I have learned in life, that there is always a solution for every situation; for every problem. The KEY however, is to get to the RIGHT KEYS. And once you have got the right keys, use them appropriately, and don’t stop until you reach your ultimate goal! REMEMBER, MOST PEOPLE WHO ACHIEVE EXTRAORDINARY FEATS ARE ORDINARY PEOPLE! IF THEY CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT TOO!!!
