The Shovel



” People know that the gold is there, but they are too lazy to pick up the shovel and start digging” ~Jim Rohn~

Whether you are wanting to improve/change your life, your dog, your career or your future you have to be willing to put in the dedication and work. This is a must to be able to improve your current situation, if not then your life will stay the same.

It is so hard when you see something that you want to change or do and do not follow through with it disappear. There are some very simple things that are required to do this, yet they are often made out to be much harder than what they are. The want, hunger, and willingness to do what it takes to accomplish your goal is all that is required.

You have to want to change. You have to want to get something more or different. Without the want or desire to transform then it will never happen. If you are wanting to change your dog’s bad habits on the walk, then it is possible. It is available because the desire to move forward will be with in reach.

A deep hunger is a must. Without the deep yearning to better your current situation you will never succeed. Like many life goals you have to be so famished with such hunger that you are doing everything, absolutely everything possible to get to the top of where you want to go. With this hunger comes sacrifice. If you are wanting the dog that you desire, you have to be willing to sacrifice your time, and accept change.

These things all seem simple and easy, yet there are so many times that we hear the excuses that come with lack of one of these components. To get the dog, the relationship, or the behavior that you want you have to look at yourself and ask if you are willing to put in the work that is required to get there. If not then that lies on you and not anyone else. It is so easy to blame not taking your dog on a walk on your job keeping you late, you like to sleep in and are not a morning person, or that it is date night. However once we start holding ourselves accountable, we can then hold our dog accountable.
