My friend Zoey is a personal trainer. She works with clients every day and creates routines to help them live a healthy life.
It’s not easy. She has to really get to know each person, really study who each person is and understand what drives them. Only then can she make recommendations on exercises and diet.
“Here’s the thing,” Zoey told me. “I can have the best plans in the world, but if my client doesn’t put these plans into action, then my work means nothing. Sometimes people want easy answers. They want instant results. There is no magic pill, no secret to success.”
Zoey says it all comes down to two simple things: Work hard and dedicate yourself. If you do these two things, you will succeed.
“Faith in action is love. Love in action is service. By transforming that faith into living acts of love, we put ourselves in contact with God Himself, with Jesus our Lord.” – Mother Teresa
God has created a spiritual workout plan for each one of us. He knows who we are and understands what drives us. He makes recommendations on what we can do to grow in our faith.
It’s time to stretch and warm up. There is no magic pill, no secret to success. It’s time to put in the hard work. It’s time to truly dedicate ourselves.
Do you know your plan? It’s time we put our faith into action.
