Day 13 Gratitude
“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”
Inspiring leaders are always greatfull. They know that their success is largely due in part to birth and circumstance. Simply give thanks to those around you. Recognize their part in the bigger plan, and say thank you.
Day 4 Empathy
“We don't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people's hearts.”
- Pema Chodron (Buddhist Teacher)
Sharing and understanding some one else's pain, it's a gift worth finding. Put your self in some one else's shoes, and try to be of comfort to them. Be empowered knowing that you are conscious of the emotions and pain of others. You are unique in that way.
Day 3 Strength
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
Strength is only a matter of will power and self discipline. The two combined create the perfect ingredients for success in all areas of life. It's your refusal to satisfy useless, harmful, and unnecessary desires that make you powerful. Abstaining from negative reactions and intentionally acting contrary to your useless habits will sharpen and strengthen your inner self
Day 1 Belief
“He who thinks he can, and he who thinks he can't. This is an exorable and indisputable law.”
- Henry Ford, (1863-1947) Industrialist
Belief is a state of mind, and can be controled. Simply, belief defines a principle or idea that we judge to be true. Trust yourself. Give yourself permission to try and try again. Meet failure with opportunities. Every failure is a lesson to be learned. Your doubts are only thoughts, not your future. If you believe you can you will manifest success. Now go retrieve your victory.
So you just got pulled over, and you know you've been drinking. Worse..you have a friend with you. So, there is no way out of this one.
Your taken to jail, and have no way of contacting any one for 48hrs..
No one knows where you are, how you feel, and or if you are alright. You are alone, and surrounded by restrictions and predators.
Where would your head be at?
Now your depressed, in debt, and looking for some thing..
STOP LOOKING FOR MOTIVATION.
Motivation is only a spark for what you think you need to be doing.
Adopt a new word...
It's time to adopt a new way of life.
Get rid off all the negatives in your life.
if that's drugs, people, your job, habits..what ever get it out of your circle. Disconnect your self from all of the negative accolades of this life.
Make a plan for the new you, and don't look for the hand of motivation.
GET OFF YOUR AS AND DO IT
WOWZERS MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS WHAT!!??
Yeah, I think you kind of guessed it. I have a high blood pressure, and don't get me wrong I'm not kicking the curb in the health department. I've always been a healthy person.
I try to eat pretty clean. My fitness habits are always changing, but are habitual. I am a gym fanatic! So, why was I so surprised when I was told my heart rate was 156 over 134!?
By the way the second number is the resting heart rate. My heart was beating that fast WHILE I WAS SITTING STILL.
Think about the habits in your life. Are you staying up late? Are you
eating a ton of candy in the morning and evening? Do you even get up out of your damn bed during the day?!
Well, I've been consuming 2 to 4 energy drinks a day for a while now. Don't get me wrong. I know that's a little more than the doctor ordered....k maybe a lot more. BUT in my defense, I work 60 to 70 hour weeks. Some times the extra energy helps..
But was it worth it!!
The answer numbnuts is IN FACT NO!
So I did a little reconnaissance and decided to find out just how much caffeine/ other things I was consuming..
Just to put it simply..COFFEE has one ingredient..coffee..
One can of NOS energy has an extra 20 ingredients added including caffeine.
I guess the day I was at work and my chest started hurting should have been a clue..but nope.. drank another and the pain went away.
See all the extra stimulants caused my heart to have forced contractions.
I had withdrawls (LIKE A DRUG), causing painful headaches and moodswings..when trying to quit for a day!
My sleep cycle was for shite. Believe me! After having a few micro naps while driving...yeah you'll think twice about drinking these..
So what am I doing...
I'm cutting my self off. Think twice guys. Moderation is a scarry game, cause soon it turns to a dependency!
WORK HARD, STAY STRONG, AND GET RESULTS!
This is my check in from the last 34 days. clean eating, yoga, pushups, and a shit ton of water.
using muscle confusion, body weight excersizes, and cardio..I cut 10 lbs. BOOM REALIZE YOUR OWN DREAMS
WORK HARD STAY STRONG AND GET RESULTS
It's that time again. Every month I assess my goals and my vision. Tomorrow I re evaluate my focuss.
I'm going to try a 30 day run at a few specifics.
The focuss will single out these few goals:
1. save $1000
2. finish 30 sessions of morning yoga
3. drink one gallon of water a day
4. increase protein intake 100 grams
5. read 1 book on success
6. invest $150
7. walk enough miles to earn $25 for a charity
I started tonight with an evening of stretching and 3 glasses of water.
The past two months I've fallen into a rut. Eating unnatural sugars, sodas, staying up too late, and not getting into the gym as much as I would have liked, has made my body tired and feeling week.
TIME TO BREAK THE BAD, AND CONSUME THE GOOD. Here's a before pick so we get to share our progress together!
"The only time you should look back. Is to see HOW FAR YOU'VE COME!"
REMEMBER WORK HARD, STAY STRONG, GET RESULTS!!
FIVE OF THE MOST COMMON FRUSTRATIONS FOR A MANAGER
1.You are the boss, but you don’t have control.
You don’t have enough control over your time, the market, or your business. Instead of controlling the business, the business is controlling you. By definition, the world of startups today is one of rapidly changing unknowns, where the inputs you receive will often conflict. It’s very frustrating.
2.All the team members have their own agenda.
You continually get frustrated with your team members, customers, vendors, and partners. They all have their own objectives and priorities, and don’t seem to listen, understand you, or follow through with their actions. You only expected that kind of a challenge from your competitors.
3.Persistent cash flow shortages.
Simply put, there’s frustratingly never enough profit or cash. Even when shopping is on the upswing, you need more people to cover business and more money to pay them. Then there are the expenses you never could have anticipated, driving down margins.
4.Constantly bumping your head on the growth ceiling.
No matter what you do, you can’t seem to break through and get to the next level. Your growth has stopped, and you feel frustrated and unsure what to do next.
5.Conventional strategies don’t seem to work for you.
You have tried all the popular initiatives and quick-fix remedies, including social media, search engine optimization, and content marketing. None have worked for long, and as a result, your staff has become numb to new strategies. You are spinning your wheels, and need traction to move again.
My first answer to all these frustrations is to step back and focus on the basics. Every great business is made up of a core group of key components. Wickman outlines 5 of my favorites in his book as the "Entrepreneurial Operating System for success":
Vision – Communicate a compelling image to everyone describing where the business is going, and how it’s going to get there.
People – Surround yourself with great people. You can’t build a great company without help. It’s having the right people in the right seats.
Issues – Constantly provide updates and direction on the challenges and obstacles that must be overcome to execute on your vision.
Process – These describe your way of completing each key element of your business. Each must be documented clearly and refined regularly.
Traction – Entrepreneurs gain traction by executing well, with focus, accountability, and discipline.
WORK HARD, STAY STRONG, GET RESULTS.
WE WANT MUSCLE. And the truth is that it's simple to gain, but everyone wants to cut corners.
YOU WANT IT....EAT FOR IT.
The number one rule for any muscle bound freak is you have TO EAT MORE TO GAIN MORE.
STICK TO EAT, YOU CAN NOT MISS A DAY.
10 LBS OF MASS IN 30 DAYS IS FEASIBLE!!
When putting on serious size and strength increase your protein and calorie intake.
It takes 3500 calories to make up one lb of mass. If you are eating the equivalent or less than that a day YOU WILL NOT GAIN WEIGHT. Starting today I want you to add 3 more meals to your diet. We're not changing the way you eat. we're adding more food. This is not a sugar cutting, meat tossing, get rid of fast food diet. This is the add more food into my stomach approach. If you want to lose fat go join weight watchers.
Cause after we destroy our muscles we're going to build them up with a shit ton of food!
Now don't go crazy with burgers and things, but do try and keep your 3 main meals with 3 more tiny meals a day.
I would shoot for 5000 calories a day. Too much? Then do some thing else... This is not for the faint of heart.
Your protein intake should equal your body weight. If you weigh 175 lbs. You need 175 grams of protein a day.
The SHORT CUT in gaining weight IS POSSIBLE. For instance: 1 gallon of milk a day is 2300 calories and a probably over 150 grams of protein. That's more than half of what you need. You might feel bloated, and a little gassy..;) BUT IT WORKS!!
Stay strong, work hard,get results.
