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.
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.
Meritum Securus – Easy Is Earned (Jade Teta)
Pain is the process.
The pain of Learning
The pain of Doing
The pain of Failing
It won’t be easy, you learn, you do and then you fail, You adapt you do and you fail some more…
As Garret J White said on one of his podcast episodes, you can’t just walk on stage and expect to be a public speaker like me I’ve got 17 years of experience in this…
Meaning he earnt the right to make it look easy.
You want Easy.
You Better Earn It
“The Pain of Discipline is far less than the pain of regret.”
The side effect conundrum…
If you hate exercising and you stop, You will probably have a better day
If you hate saving money, you will most likely have a better day when you spend that money on something that makes you feel better…
If instead of following your diet plan you binge out on sweets and whatever you will most likely feel better…
Feel better In the short run, Until the side effects kick in.
And suddenly the doctors told us we have a heart problem, or we need some money but we spent it all on some crap we don’t need…
Then we wonder ‘If only I dealt with the side effects of a little discipline’
When it all could have been avoided by going through an hour a day of discomfort, 10-20% of your wages stashed away… Whatever it is…
Put up with the short term side effects of discipline
Or live with the long term effects of being undisciplined
Too much of a good thing and you become blind about it – Maxime Lagacé
Too much of anything we perceive to be good eventually will become bad.
Too much exercise – We risk overtraining, under-recovering, and risk getting injured
Too much alcohol – The enjoyment of the night, control over yourself and the fun for others gets ruined…
too much of your favourite dessert will become sickly
Even too much sex will eventually stop becoming pleasurable and you lose that connection with your partner…
It’s important today that no matter how motivated you are, how much you want to succeed you take the time to recover from your ‘good thing’
Before you get blinded by it.
