In the song “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga, the lyrics are saying there’s a million reasons she should let someone go in her life, but she needs only one good reason to stay. That ONE good reason cancels the other 999999 reasons! That’s incredible! That’s powerful!
Let’s take this a step further and think about this in terms of getting to the studio and working out. There’s a million reasons one does not have time to workout.
I understand we’re busy, all of us. We shuffle our priorities and always aiming for a balance of managing our time in all the things we're committed to. I’m sure we can come up with a million reasons we don’t have the time to work out.
But why is this important for you? What happens at the dance studio? What happens when you give time to yourself? When you’ve finished your workout, how does that change you? How does that affect your day? Your week? Your interactions with others? How does it make you feel?
Stop right now and answer these questions. Then find the one that is most important to you, the one that stands out and really resonates with you. That should be the focus.
Next step, when can you make that happen? What do you need to juggle in order to put this time on the calendar and make this happen? Find some solutions. I know they’re out there if you make it priority.
If you had to have dialysis three times a week to stay alive, yes it would change your schedule, but I’m sure you’d find the time to do that if that’s what you have to do to survive. If coming to the studio makes you feel (insert your answers here), why is that not a priority?
You are worth this time to rejuvenate your soul, recharge your mental capacity and be a better version of yourself.
So I challenge you, what is one reason to get you to the studio and workout this week? Then give yourself a solution.
