Motivational Monday

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
-Nelson Mandela (July 18 1918 – December 5 2013)

We try to instill a confidence in all our clients at AMP to take charge of their health and fitness.  Hearing the words "I can't" is like nails on a chalk board.  How do you know you can't until you test yourself?  How do you know it's not possible till you try?  The purpose of training is to push yourself to do things you once thought were impossible.  Never could do a push-up before? Work at it till its done!!  Then what you once thought was impossible, is easy.  

No matter how much you try to reach what you thought was impossible, the key is to keep trying.  Keep getting after it.  Each time you fail, or fall, its another learning experience, another chance to get better, stronger.  Falls, slips, regressions are going to happen.  They are a part of life, but the most important thing you can do when you fail, is to pop right back up, dust yourself off and work. 


  1. Thanks so much for joining our inaugural Motivate Me Monday link-up!

    I like this post. It really speaks to me personally, as I have "fallen" a heckuva lot in my own health and fitness journey. I've been doing my best to learn from each fall so I can better equip myself to avoid falls in the future! I love reading things on this topic, as it really encourages me, and makes me feel like maybe I *am* doing something right!

    Thanks so much for sharing this :-)

  2. Don't avoid falls. Embrace them. For every fall is a learning experience and a chance to get better.
