Getting what you want

I attended an expo last weekend, and there seemed to be a pretty clear theme:

Anything is possible if you really want it.

Most of the speakers were selling something, so you have to take that picture they painted with a grain of salt. But, maybe it's true?

Everyone knows what they need to do. The successful people are those who do it.

Why is it that we don't do the things we know we need to do? Why can't we stop procrastinating? Why can't we stop drinking? Why can't we just exercise like we know we should? Are we afraid of failing? Are we afraid of success?

I will say this. All of the speakers looked years, if not decades, younger than they actually were. Maybe inaction is what slows us down and makes us old?

Thinking up reasons not to do things certainly gets tiring...doesn't it?
