Everyone gets tired, Even your hopes
Doing the work is tiring.
It does not always go to plan…
We may fail and we may fall,
We will definitely experience tiredness and fatigue…
But if we have started the work then no matter how tired we become, We will have made progress…
But if all your doing is sitting around, Hoping for change, Then eventually you are going to give up hope, and you will have made no progress and watched time just pass by…
You’re going to get tired no matter what, So you might as well become tired doing something.
Do you have a time machine?
So that you can go back in time and change shit.. No So why dwell on it in the present.
(Not a direct quote) But a quote from Kevin Harts the decision.
We can’t go back and change the stuff we have done or haven’t.
So all we can do is accept it, Its happened, we can’t change it, but we can adapt to it in the present.
We can move forward and deal with whatever happened, But not if we cannot accept it.
So let’s stop the feeling sorry for ourselves and make some forward progress
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 Weight and Filter of the past
Is what we are basing our lives we live today on.
What happened in the past does not equal your future…
But when you look out of the horizon on your future, you are looking through a lens that is filtered from past mistakes.
So you cannot get past them and you are constantly living in the past today.
Which means you cannot progress because of this weight that’s dragging you down.
But this filter is from the past, right… So why should it determine what you do in the future?
Why should we be held back by a filter that isn’t even relevant anymore…
So you need to find a way to let go of the weight and remove the filter so you can start living today.
Just Slow It Down…
Bigger, Faster, Better…
That’s what we want and we want it yesterday.
But when it comes to building a better body, better business, better relationships…
We need to slow it down.
Our bodies are the perfect example of this.
We try and lose 10 years of weight in 2 weeks, or we try and build 10 years of muscle in 2 weeks…
The results we do get aren’t sustainable.
Yeah, you may lose 25lbs but its the same 25lbs you’ve been losing for the last decade that you regain back and lose again.
Let’s slow it down, let’s get sustainable results.
Let’s have an awesome year where longevity is the main focus.
