“We go for the hard start to get the easy finish.” – Marty Gallagher

“I didn’t say it would be easy. I said it would be worth it.” – Dave Ramsey

Everything comes at a price. This reaping and sowing is a fundamental law of the universe and i didn’t make it up. Change requires effort and for the vast majority of people, effort is the most misunderstood and misdirected part of the puzzle.

Sometimes we don’t want to put effort into getting started, getting off the couch, and doing something.

Sometimes we don’t want to put effort into rest, restoring and recovering from our efforts.

Too much and too little both result in the same thing:

Missing the mark.

The physical effort is not the most difficult part. The lifestyle changes involving food, drink and other habits is not the hardest part.

The hardest part is the mindset of being able to look at the person in the mirror and loving them enough to get them to stop being stuck on stupid.  Once you get through that, the rest is pretty easy.
