You wake up every day with an opportunity to do it better; in this instance, ‘It‘ is Life.
If you do not have enough time in your day to workout, read, & pursue your hobby then you are choosing the path of weakness. The reason being is you could go to bed later or wake up earlier; yet you manage your time inefficiently and you’re choosing comfort over necessity.
How did that work for you in 2015?
If you keep doing the same thing and complaining about the same lack of results, then you’re caught in the cycle of Redundancy Without Progress.
Did you have the year you could have had?
I doubt it because most are just too damn comfortable; this comfort is preventing true growth and attainment of goals. The desire to remain comfortable seems to be stronger than the desire to be successful and to reach your genetic potential.
- Why can’t you wake up at 0500 instead of 0630 so you can get your workout, reading, or writing in?
- Why can’t you write out a meal plan and adhere to it?
- Why can’t you read books or piece’s on blogs then actually apply them to your situation instead of just reading and then suffering from analysis paralysis, reading for hours and not spending a single minute actually doing something.
2015 could have been your year, but you did not make it so…
So let’s stop talking about it like women and take action like men. As with all problems you face: Don’t Bitch, Fix!
I hate when people say they are making a ‘New Year’s Resolution’ as it implies they are waiting to improve themselves instead of taking immediate action and ownership.
Since we are wicked close to New Year’s (8hrs & 18 minutes as of this moment) I say screw it, make it a ‘resolution’ or whatever the hell you have to call it, but actually choose to make a change.
Wake up earlier or go to bed later.
Will you diminish some of the gains you could make in the gym? Probably.
Will the added time allow you to accomplish more goals than you could have otherwise? Definitely.
You do whatever it is you need to get accomplished that you couldn’t otherwise during a normal day. Most of you have used up all of your ‘Zero Days’. It’s time to make a change in your default choice making.
Choose the hard path, set that goal and then write down the steps you will be taking to reach it, then actually take the necessary actions.
If you need someone to help you remain accountable, look at The Fraternity of Excellence, we have over 100 men in there working on challenges together and helping one another raise the standard of men in all areas.
Find out what you want and let’s come up with a game plan to make it happen. You want to read 30 books this year? Get a visible six pack? Deadlift 400lbs? Write a book? Improve your sex life?
Whatever it is you want, get out there and make it happen. Make 2016 your year.
Make it the year you decide to stop talking and start taking action.
Happy New Year’s,
