Okay, so you have a dream of living your life on your own terms.
Like most people, you wanna be financially free, fit and happy.
But are you really doing the things necessary to live your life that way?
Are you really making the sacrifices and making the necessary changes to live your life on your own terms.
Many of us believe we are, but whenever we start something new or try to go on a path that we know will help us reach our goals.
For some reason, we just don’t end up doing it for long.
For example, let's say you wanna start going to the gym at least 3 times a week before you go to work.
Pretty simple right?
But let's say that you never specified which days you wanna go to the gym. It just has to be a minimum of 3 times a week.
Monday comes along, you go to the gym, have a great workout. Bam day 1 is in the books.
But then here comes Tuesday. You’re tired, you don’t really feel like going so you say “you know what, I’ll just go tomorrow”.
Wednesday comes along, you have some work to do before you go into work so you can’t go then either.
Thursday’s here, but you just really don’t feel like going today either so you skip it because you know there are 3 more days left and you only need to go to the gym 2 more times this week.
Do you see where I am going with this?
Willpower has nothing to do with getting up to go to the gym. It’s your philosophy about going to the gym that's what needs to change.
You have so much going on, a person can only have so much willpower.
Consistency is challenging, but it's that consistency that separates us from those who just end up quitting and trying to reach the same goal over and over and over again.
Instead of saying I will go to the gym 3 times a week. Set specific days that you know you’ll be able to go.
Don’t cancel those plans for anything, even if you’re tired.
You just have to make that choice of either, ima stick to my goals and get to the gym or I’m not.
It’s the small consistent steps that separate us all. If you have a goal that you wanna achieve,
It’s really as simple as just taking the necessary steps to go out and achieve that goal.
You set a plan, and you stick with it until you reach that goal.
No more, oh I’ll just do it tomorrow. No, you’ll do it today!
You wanna start waking up at 6 am? Then get up. Don’t roll over and say “I just want 10 more minutes” or “Ima take a break today and sleep in”
No, if you wanna get up at 6 am, then wake up at 6 am. As soon as that alarm goes off, you get up, drink some water and get your day started.
Change the way you think about your goals, and I promise you, you’ll be able to accomplish more!
Change your philosophy and how you approach setting and reaching your goals, and you’ll become unfuckwitable! (My Kid Cudi lovers will know what that means 😄)
Remember though, you got this! Don't let anyone or anything tear you down. As the great Mike Tyson once said; "As long as you have life you have chance".
Let me know in the comments below what some of your goals are.
As always, with love,
