Monday Minute-“Sitting On The Fence”

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend and wonderful Mother’s Day!

I got in a good conversation this week with a client about true commitment. We discussed the importance of chasing greatness and what it truly takes to accomplish it. Truly you have two choices, to be all in, or…you guessed it, NOT all in. This conversation led me to this:

In the fitness world I always hear people say, “Well, I just want to maintain.” I honestly have no idea what that means. You have two choices right? one, to go all in, or two, to NOT be all in, which means you aren’t fully committed. It’s an out, an excuse used because of a fear to commit to something great, which takes work.

Sitting on the Fence: This brings me back to “I just want to maintain,” how exactly does one do this? I seriously don’t know, if you do, tell me. If I were to approach my life, my goals, my dreams by sitting on the fence I’m on that line that separates “all in” and “not all in” Does such a line even exist?

To me, there is no such thing as sitting on the fence, It is something only imaginable….by having the mindset of “I want to maintain” you are only placing yourself in the boundary of “not all in” or not fully committed. You are either getting better or you are going backwards. I challenge you this week to change sides if you aren’t “all in” escape the boundaries of “not all in” because those boundaries are tiny, unlike the endless pastures of opportunity of being “all in”

(Experience the fenceless pastures of opportunity that comes with being “all in”)

Have an awesome week everyone! If you ever need anything, don’t hesitate to ask!



P.S. Even God says there is no Sitting on the Fence:

Luke 16:13
“No Servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
