Show up and contribute

Show up and contribute

That’s how we gain traction and progress.

Show up and contribute to your body every day by choosing to exercise and eat healthier (or contribute to developing an unhealthy one it works both ways)

Show up and contribute to your partner, to your business, to your blog…

I had something like 50 views in my first year of blogging, 2nd year 400 the 3rd over 2000 then last year I hadn’t published anything for like 5-6 months on the site, I was publishing elsewhere but I had something like 4000 views…

All from the contribution from the years before and they’ll hopefully continue to grow the more I contribute

It’s like when you was superfit in high school or college,
You could run for days, play sports etc, then go eat a McDonald’s and chug alcohol…

These habits persist on when the training stops and all those years of unhealthy eating add up when you get older.

Whatever you want traction on show up and contribute to it.

The Cost Of Victimhood

The Cost Of Victimhood

When you look at anything in your life, You can see it comes down to one thing.

Your results.

You either get them or you don’t.

That’s it.

But we do one of two things when it comes to our results.

We either Own Them Or make excuses for them.

The second is Victimhood.

We blame others, we blame things, We blame this and that, but we never blame ourselves.

So we sit in this land of excuses feeling sorry for ourselves, hating the world.

But the reality is we either Did the work or we didn’t.

If we did the work and didn’t get the result, that’s cool, we did all we could.

If we didn’t do the work, then what the hell are we expecting to happen.

Do the work.

Get out of the land of excuses and Own your life.

Your results.

You either get them or you don’t.

That’s it.

But we do one of two things when it comes to our results.

We either Own Them Or make excuses for them.

The second is Victimhood.

We blame others, we blame things, We blame this and that, but we never blame ourselves.

So we sit in this land of excuses feeling sorry for ourselves, hating the world.

But the reality is we either Did the work or we didn’t.

If we did the work and didn’t get the result, that’s cool, we did all we could.

If we didn’t do the work, then what the hell are we expecting to happen.

Do the work.

Get out of the land of excuses and Own your life.

Characters in a play

We all just characters in a play
We have our roles to play
Just acting out each day
Hoping we see another day

But our role is not guaranteed
Our contract might not get renewed
Once the curtain is called
We leave an empty stage for our permanent retirement

Let us act out each day
As if it was our last performance
Because we’re only as good as our last dance
So lete not get stage fright
So we can take our character to new heights
So when the curtain finally gets called
We can call it good night And peacfully retire.
Knowing we performed our hearts out and did our character right

We all just characters in a play
We have our roles to play
Just acting out each day
Hoping we see another day

No.

No.

You and I are incomplete people.

To become compleat we have to try new experiences, say something, go somewhere different…

Why…

New situations activate genes and these genes activate proteins that build new structures in the brain

So doing the same things over and over again we never activate these genes and remain incomplete

The more we do the same things over and over the harder, it is for us to try/say/do new things.

Like saying No for instance.

The more you say yes the harder it is for you say no, Like when your boss asks you to work overtime and you know you don’t want to…

But you say yes anyway, the next time your boss asks you, the chances are you’re going to say yes again.

And by the time your boss asks you to do something ridicules like working 40 hours for free… Your brain isn’t structured to say no.

The same is true when you’ve just joined the gym but your friends are asking you to go out again, you really don’t want too… What do you say?

Rebuild your brain
So you can rebuild yourself.

Things fall apart

Things fall apart,

Nothing lasts forever and somethings are supposed to fall apart,

Your gym trainers, you don’t buy them to keep them in the same condition, they were made to eventually wear out…

Somethings fall apart when they could be held together,

But we neglect them, There not that important until it’s too late,

Like your car, the engine light isn’t that important until it blows up, or your bold tires can be replaced tomorrow but when you have ablow out today…

We treat our bodies like this too, that ache in your lower back isn’t important until it cripples you picking up your grand kids,

Like the tires could be replaced, that crippling back pain could have been prevented by stretching it out when it was just an ache…

Things fall apart, But they don’t have too

Not if we treat them right
