Heat, hammering, and honing

Nothing is easy about making something valuable. Take a sword. To make one that is not only tough and durable, but also attractive takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of heat, hammering, and honing to get the steel to become a blade. The process is time consuming, difficult, and requires discipline to do correctly. The result, depending on the time spent and the effort taken, is a beautiful and useful tool.

Your body is the same. If you are overweight, out of shape, and you want to lose weight and get fit, you will have to go through a lot of work to get there. Like the sword, you will have to use discipline to eat right, and if you want to get fit, you will have to do a lot of physical work (which will make you sweat as you feel hot). It is a process that takes time; it cannot be done overnight. However, like anything valuable, the results are worth the time and effort.

Don’t look for the quick fix. There is no effortless way to get fit, and losing weight takes great discipline and perseverance. Anything worthwhile in life takes time to achieve, and good health and fitness, after years of not taking care of it properly, will take time. Be patient; it’s not a race.
