People talk with their wallets

People talk with their wallets

If you ask people do they eat healthy they’ll tell you that they eat their fruit and vegetables

If you ask people if they recycle they’ll probably tell you that they do

But just because they say they do, doesn’t mean that they actually do

What they say is just who they think they should be or who they think that you want them to be…

But the principle Is

If you say you do one thing because that’s who you think you should be

The why don’t you just do it

So that you can be that person

And the second part of the principle is

People say they are one thing but in the end the talking is done with their money and how they spend it

If you say that you eat healthy for example but rack up takeaway bills every week…

Order your day

Order your day

In the Boron Letters (Letters Gary Halbert wrote to his son in prison)
the first three Gary is writing to his son about the importance of fitness

Now Gary was one of the most successful Copywriters to have ever lived and he spends three letters
talking to his son about fitness

He says fitness orders your day it makes you feel great and rids yourself of most of your tension and anxiety

These letters was also written in 1984 I don’t know what the science was like back then on the mental health effects of exercise

But even back then it was clear that exercise can make you more productive in your work and rid you of stress

So in order to order your day and set it up right

Start it off with some exercise.

Check the details

Check the details

Giving my brother a lift to a course he was on the other day, and whilst in the car he checked the email they sent him,

And he was like oh shit I didn’t see that, and turns out he needed a few documents to take with him, which he didn’t have…

It’s easy to just check the main points or skim through stuff, making it even easier to miss stuff, important stuff.

There have been countless times I’ve not read the details and turned up in the wrong places, wrong days and just forgot stuff.

All because I couldn’t take a few seconds to read through the details.

We miss the small details in life to when we don’t take the time to think where are these cues coming from…

Why are you and your partner arguing again, what have you missed…
Why are you always waking up with a headache, what’s your body telling you?

Why this, why that…

Life is trying to tell us things, but we are not checking the details.

You’ll take away the biggest part of me

If you leave me now, You’ll take away the biggest part of me

-Chicago (I think)

I’ve got this lyric in my head I don’t know why, but it got me thinking

That the biggest part of you cannot be someone else.

People leave, People have their own plans and things happen.

In the fitness world (as well as many others) I always heard the excuse ‘well I’ll have to speak to my partner to see if they’ll let me’

Which is fine if your buying a car, But when it comes to joining the gym or hiring a personal trainer,

Is putting the decision in your partner’s hands the best idea?

Yeah say you don’t hire one, and slowly over time your health gets worse and then one day your partner leaves or dies, then you’re left on your own, with your poor health.

You are your biggest asset.

You need to look after you and stop relying on other people to bring you happiness, health, meaning, love and anything else that matters to you.

If you leave me now… I’ll be okay is how the song should go but it probably wouldn’t have sold many records

Suffering

Suffering

Is what we’re going to face whether we leave the door or not, suffering exists on both sides of it,

Suffering will happen if you go for that job or not,
If you speak to that person or not,
If you workout or not,
If you better your education or not

Suffering is a part of life it will show up if we walk left or right, don’t move at all or just stay on the same path we’re on.

We are going to suffer

So you might as well suffer at something that will make the suffering worthwhile

Example – If choose to workout, you have to suffer through the workout, you have to suffer from the hard work, from the lifestyle changes and the sacrifices you have to make like going to the gym over going straight home and watching the tv.

But through that suffering you get healthier, you feel a lot better, you look better, you have more energy.

If you don’t choose to workout, you get to eat what you want, have those lazy days, don’t have to face the gym, but all that pleasure will lead to suffering,

Your health will start to degrade, you might gain weight, you will lose energy, feel under par most of the time, struggle with concentration and so on…

Suffering is everywhere
