Musings Episode 40: Tighten Up…

Hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to partying it up this New Year’s Eve. This episodic musing is really more of a follow up from one I wrote a few weeks ago on clean slates…and it’s gonna get a bit serious.

With the close of the year so closely upon us, I’m sure most of you are already making new year’s resolutions to knock off at the beginning of the year – I know a lot of my clients have, especially some of my fitness ones.

On the flip side, I also know that many new year’s resolutions are also broken shortly after the new year begins…I don’t want you guys to do that. Not my subscribers on this blog or my official site. I want you to understand that a new year’s resolution isn’t just something you write on a piece of paper – it’s a promise. A goal. An objective…to yourself. Something that should be followed through with and accomplished.

This new year, I want you guys to tighten up, and stick to your guns – play the game out to the end, no matter what…because crossing things off a list you’ve set out to do is far more satisfactory than the 100 “what ifs” floating around in your head.

What do I mean by tighten up exactly?

Be a bit hard on yourself.

Take some responsibility. The same way you get up every morning and commit to brushing your teeth, getting a shower, and making it to work, I want you to do the same when it comes to your own goals. The same way you remember your kid’s birthday, your anniversary, and buying gifts for loves ones (or even that “surprise Santa” office junk) I want you to do the same thing with your goals. You owe it to yourself.

The same way a fitness consultant is with their clients is or a drill sergeant is with their soldiers, I want you to be with yourself.

It’s a sense of obligation you should feel.

If a dying man diagnosed with cancer can attempt to cross off his list all the things he’d wish he’d done, you can too.

Because really, not to get dark but every day, humans are dying.

Time is non-refundable.

It’s up to you, and you only to make the decision to turn those minutes into minutes of LIFE.

Unless you’re under 18 or in diapers, you’re completely responsible for yourself. You have no excuse.

…which brings me to another point – there are kids out there who have to fend for themselves, even under 18 – if they can do it, you sure as fuck can do it too.

Don’t just survive. THRIVE.

I want you to understand every single person has two potentials:

To be a WINNER.

Or a complete fucking loser.

The choice is yours.

Life doesn’t have to have sacrifices.

The only sacrifice is allowing the time to build your ideal life instead of settling.

…and really – that’s not a sacrifice at all.

So tighten up, get your shit together, and knock out whatever goals it is you’re planning this year.

If it’s to lose 10 pounds, do it.

If it’s to start your own business, do it.

Fuck, if it’s to get yourself a new car without getting yourself in debt, fucking do it.

Just make a decision and stick with it.

I want you all to succeed so badly I feel it in my fucking TEETH.

…but I can’t force you to do shit – you’ve gotta do it yourself.

So choose.

The decision is yours.

But whatever decision you make – make sure you have no regrets.

I started this blog because I had a message to share, along with valuable information and insight.

I started this blog to let people know that they have WAY MORE potential than they give themselves credit for.

YOU have more potential than you give yourself credit for.

You do.

You really. Fucking. Do.

Get out there and be something for yourself.

And as always…

Stay awesome.

  3. Hi, liked Make it Mondays: Make Your Best Effort Your Only Effort too. You’ve got something here. How do you keep so positive?

    • I’m very careful what I take in my ear gate and my eye gate – negativity is taught, no one is born with it. Ergo if you focus more on the positive side of your life – even down to the simple most obvious things, bottom line is you’re spending less focusing on negativity. 🙂 Thanks for being a follower of my official site too!

  5. I am a winner. No harm as a winner. That is my motto. Get laughed all the time. No joke. 6 months kiss my job goodbye. Who will be laughing then. lol

    • Hey Anon,

      Always helps to have your own motto – no sense in waiting around to be uplifted by others. Congrats on aiming for quitting your job! If you need help building a professional site for your business let me and my team know – among many things it’s something we specialize in 🙂

      Good luck!
