Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Ok this isn’t entirely true, if you go to Rome you’ll see ancient history blended into modern-day living and it makes one beautiful city (I think I’ve never been) Old and new clearly can live together there.

However…

When it comes to me and you

Old cannot live with the New.

The old way of doing things and a new way of thinking that is.

You want to achieve that big goal. That requires a new way of thinking.

But thinking alone can’t change anything…

So you have to change the way you do things too,

You can’t want to lose weight, but still, do the things that made you gain the weight in the first place.

You can’t get rich by doing the stuff that got you broke…

Do you want change?

The old way has to be evicted.

“Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.”

“Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.”
– Brian Tracy

Sometimes we don’t always run at our 100% capacity…

Sometimes it’s just out of our control…

We get ill, Burn out, Fatigued, Lack of sleep, Big deadlines to hit, Kids get ill and keep you up…

Just to name a few…

All will impact the way we perform today.

But there is always a target you can hit…

You might be too ill go 100% today, you might not have the energy do what you had planned…

You might not be able to deadlift 80kg today, But you might be able to go for a walk, or make a smoothie and keep you on the right track…

You hold the bow, you can lower your aim, pull that bowstring back and fire and still hit something today…

That’s the beauty of a good goal… It’s your fuel in your furnace, No matter what the circumstances are, That fuel burns and stokes your fire

No person is your friend

‘No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.’ Alice Walker⠀

Something happens to the people around you when you start to make a difference in your life,⠀

Especially in your close circle …⠀

The people will either support you or They will try and discourage you, Mock and Laugh at what you’re doing and then try and pull you back into your old ways and habits…⠀

The latter are assholes… But it’s not entirely there fault,⠀
