The Diligent Pursuit

The Diligent Pursuit

In order for you to really change from the inside out, you must have a diligent nature about you. You have to be per- sistent in your pursuit to finding another way. This WAR Lifestyle is a lifestyle of progress where willing individuals have the opportunity to experience a new elite way of life. It’s an active, performance enhanced life, which if sought out and lived to the fullest, will lead you on a progressive upward journey to experiencing a life you never thought was possible. However, it is going to take a diligent effort on your part to get there. It’s going to take sweat, heartache, blood, and tears, followed by intense adversity, and even more tears. But you can get there.You can’t expect to change just by talking about changing. Change takes a diligent effort, an effort that may be un- comfortable at times. You have to get comfortable being uncomfortable. You have to become diligent in your Gym attendance. You have to be avid about improving your strength and fitness levels. You have to be diligent in your gym note taking where you are constantly logging your loads and times. You have to be diligent in your nutrition. You have to look to improve how you fuel yourself on a regular basis. You have to tie your kitchen directly into the WAR work- outs. You have to fuel yourself with the idea in mind that you want to have a good experience in the gym. You have to understand that the Gym experience revolves around nutrition; and if your nutrition is lacking, so is your gym experi- ence – for one doesn’t perform well without the other.You have to be diligent in the WAR classroom. The concepts and topics that are discussed have to be implemented, or they remain just concepts and topics that were discussed. It’s easy to talk the talk; it’s another thing to walk the walk. You have to be diligent in your study and also diligent in your search for spirituality. Spirituality can bring many gifts in to your life, but these gifts are only granted if you seek them out through diligent study and heart felt prayer; howev- er, this study and heartfelt prayer has to be consistently taking place in your life. It can’t be a sporadic effort where you just decide to take a day off because you were to busy or tired. You can’t use excuses when trying to change. Everyone has time. Make time for yourself and be diligent in your pursuit to change, for it is the only way to really change. If changing was such an easy process, everyone would be doing it; however, everyone isn’t doing it because they are lazy and don’t have that diligent nature about them to do something out of the ordinary on a consistent basis. They don’t have the understanding of what it takes to truly change, because change isn’t something that takes place overnight. Change is a process.Once the change slowly starts unfolding in your life – you have to be even more diligent, and look to improve and change yourself even more. There is no cap on how far you can progress, and being diligent is the key to growth and change, but it can’t stop. The gift of diligence has to remain in your life so you can continue growing, for without it, you will stall and eventually regress.Just as God has given us all gifts and talents, diligence is a gift that has to be developed. You have to pray fervently for it and then work to receive it. It has to be a conscious effort on your part, but once you come to understand the im- portance of diligence, you will continually strive to keep it a priority in your life. You will come to the realization that being a diligent person plays a key role in change, and even progress.-Hawk
