We are almost done with week four of quarantine.
On this milestone, I would like you to stop for a second and think about this. If you have been staying home for the last month, then you can do anything you want. I want you to look beyond the quarantine and into the human spirit.
For someone like me who loves his job and needs and wants to work but chooses to quarantine and put his goals and dreams on hold, that takes STRENGTH. It also takes a lot of STRENGTH for a loving daughter to stay away from her parents because she wants to protect them.
It takes a lot of DISCIPLINE for someone who misses his or her family and friends but chooses to quarantine to save lives.
A lot of people have put their lives on hold out of solidarity and compassion for others. All of these people showed a lot of COMMITMENT to their efforts to put an end to this virus. Lots of folks are in quarantine and have SAID NO to their hobbies and to their daily activities.
Most of us have gone WITHOUT our favorite meal at our favorite restaurant or WITHOUT enjoying our lives the way we have always done it. Most of us have SACRIFICED our freedom and even our rights to help our society, our neighbors, and, ultimately, ourselves.
These acts prove that we have STRENGTH and we have DISCIPLINE. Our choices and actions have shown that we can SAY NO when we need to say no, and we can SACRIFICE our pleasures if we genuinely need and want to.
For the past month, you have shown that you have the STRENGTH, THE DISCIPLINE, AND THE COMMITMENT you need to achieve your goals.
For the last month, you proved that you HAVE SACRIFICED WHAT YOU LOVED FOR WHAT YOU WANT AND WHAT YOU NEED. You might have overeaten or have drunk too much or maybe not moved or exercised enough.
However, we all know that what we focus on — grows.
SO, let’s focus on all the things we’ve done right and our qualities and strengths, and let’s watch them grow. Once we go back to our lives, let’s remember all the things we did right and all the things we want to do differently.
I am asking you to take this time and focus on what you have gained rather than what you have lost. What you have lost might look and feel worse than what you have learned; however, a lesson leaned could last a lifetime, while a job loss is temporary.
Chin up, take a deep breath and keep on moving. There is a new beginning in front of you. Let’s use this pent-up energy to go after what we want harder than ever before. Staying mentally and physically active is critical. It not only helps us manage these challenging times, it will also help us come out of them better than before.
It is week five of the quarantine, and patience is running very thin. I’ve included some new and exciting workouts for this week. They are designed to keep our minds sharp and our bodies agile.
Finally, as always, I deeply appreciate your continued support. It means a lot to me and our Results staff. In addition, if you need anything, please let us know. We are in this together, and together we must stay. Healthy and safe.
Thank you, and God Bless.
