Life is about “And”

When you take full ownership of your life, you realize a lot of things.


One of those things is that you are 100% in control of yourself, your time, and what’s possible in your life.


Too often we adopt the belief that we “can’t have it all” or that we “must choose.”


We must choose a successful career or raising a family.


We must choose between being a dedicated parent and taking care of ourselves.


We must choose family time or fitness.


The truth is that these are all lies.


There is no “either/or” when it comes to an overall successful and fulfilling life.


You can take incredible care of your body and health AND be a great parent/spouse AND have a wildly successful career.


You can have it all if you’ll let yourself believe it and create it.


So, where in your life do you believe you must choose?


What if you changed that belief? What would it look like if you could have it all?

The Way Forward

Despite what many people in the business world are teaching, there is a very simple way to move your business and your life forward.

It’s not writing to-do lists, creating a strategic plan or, some other complex thing.

It’s simple, really.

It’s action.

It’s literally taking one step in the right direction…followed by another and then another.

And sometimes this requires experimenting with totally new actions if previous ones weren’t working.

When we overcomplicate things, we get ourselves stuck. We find ourselves frozen, unable to take action.

We overwhelm ourselves with the big picture and suddenly it all just feels out of reach.

If you’re feeling this right now, stop and ask yourself – what is the easiest step forward I can take?

Because we must always remember that action creates results, which create motivation – not the other way around.

So, what’s your next right step?

There is Pleasure in the Process

There’s a result you desire.
Maybe it’s weight loss, maybe it’s to achieve a specific lift or run your first 5k, or maybe it’s to get off your blood pressure medication. Whatever the goal is, what I’m going to talk about applies.
If you or someone you know has ever gone to extreme measures to lose weight – HCG injections, diet pills, surgery, starvation diets, etc – the chances are VERY small that they were successful. And if they were, chances are that they couldn’t sustain the result. I’m going to tell you why…
They were chasing a result while ignoring the process.
To be successful with anything long term, whether it’s nutrition, weight loss, fitness, business, performance – literally anything – you have to learn to fall in love with the process.
It’s not some grand action that gets you to lose 30 pounds. It’s the accumulation of the choices you make each and every day – the PROCESS – that gets you to the RESULT, not the other way around.
So if you ever find yourself frustrated with progress toward the desired outcome, be sure to stop and ask yourself – “are the behaviors I’m practicing every single day going to lead to the result I desire?”
The answer should be pretty clear.
And if the answer is “no”, what are you willing to change to make the answer “yes”?
I fully acknowledge that habit change is HARD! I don’t suggest going for a full lifestyle overhaul all at once most of the time, but rather be conscious of the choices you’re making each day knowing that each choice brings you closer to your goal or further from it.
Neutral choices don’t exist.
