Day 21 and it’s Saturday!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever in the world you may be right now. I just returned from a nice(and hot) day by the pool. Since we are going to the Empower Network event in Denver in two weeks, the lady and I decided to stay in this weekend and have our own little “success workshop”.
After a nice home cooked dinner we are settling down with our note pads to really STUDY our BIM/EmpowerNetwork back offices. There is SO MUCH hands on and valuable information available for us members there and I recommend everyone a part of this to utilize the knowledge base you have access to.
We decided to stay in tonight and work on our bright future.. We’ll go party later, all over the world 🙂
I’ve been doing my workouts and my videos now for 20 days. Some days have been like a breeze, some days have been a huge hassle. What I’ve learnt is that as long as I am able to be consistent with my goals, as long as I do that thing each day that I set out to do, it only gets better and better. Doesn’t mean there are not still days that are difficult, it just means I can see the improvement happening. That’s motivation!
So remember, some days may be rough.. some days may be really hard! But find that strength and motivation in you to push through with your necessary action and you will be thrilled as you notice the progress come along.
Day 17 – fun story about working hard, taking action, actually taking your dreams/goals seriously and find that drive that you desperately need for success.
Let me know if you like it!
Giving you a story from my lunch conversation today that made me do some reflecting.
Day 15/90 – Happy Sunday!!
I started my Sunday off doing the Capitol Bikeshare around DC. This is a fairly new thing for DC, bike stations all around town where you can pick up and drop off rented bikes. It was funny cause I had not been on a bike much the last 4-6 years but I had a great time. It is always great to rediscover stuff you might have forgotten how to enjoy.
We ended up going around the mall downtown, checking out people and memorials. Finally, we decided to make video 15 next to the incredibly inspirational Martin Luther King Jr(memorial).
As I know a lot of you guys out there who are trying to blog every day and/or are doing the 90 day video thing – I know it can be challenging to find a topic to speak about each day. If you don’t have a specific topic line set up, if you don’t really have a passion you can talk about forever – you can always just try something new. Try something you never did before and make a comment/video on how you liked it. I know as a blog reader and video watcher that I would be interested hearing a person’s first observations/experiences with something they have never tried before.
So that’s the topic of today. Had great Sunday but my legs sure feel fatigued from biking all around town. Lol..
Have a great night!
Day 14 of 90, and it is Saturday!
My main message today is: Please please take some action today that will help you get closer to your goals. I don’t care if it is Saturday and you want to party. I don’t mean that you can’t party and let loose, but I want you to at least spend a couple of hours first to do some things that will get you closer to achieving your goals.
Doesn’t matter what your goal is – want to make more money, want to start your own business, want to get in shape, want to learn how to paint or master the art of Kung Fu. EITHER WAY I am sure there is SOMETHING you can do RIGHT NOW that would help you get closer to that goal. Do it. Now. Don’t wait.
Then relax later….
I am telling you this “challenge”/opportunity is doing wonders for me! Only at day 13 I feel so much better.. both in terms of confidence to make my videos but also especially on the fitness part of it. As you know I am doing a certain set of exercises each day as well My goal is to show you that I can do 50 pull ups in my Day 90- video!!! lol
Topic of my blog today is about the results of taking action. I know I have talked about this a ton of times already, but honestly it never gets old. Where do you think you are going to be in life if you don’t take action?
It’s also interesting to see the chain reactions of this challenge. I was discussing this with my lady the other day(she is also doing the fitness part of the 90 day opportunity). Our personal “challenge” was for me to do the videos, but for us both to cut down alcohol and to do a set of exercises per day. There were no food restrictions. Just a minimum of workouts and a maximum on alcohol. Well, after 13 days we are seeing added benefits of not really wanting to eat bad food anymore.. the candy is less appealing.. the urge is just not there the same way it may have used to be before. And that is kinda cool! It is just an added side effect to the fitness challenge!
NB! I am actually switching out my gummy bears(yeah I love those things) with fruit now. Fruit is the new gummies! lol
So, take action.. start small if you have to, do something every day to work towards your goals. See how much closer you will get after only 13 – 15- 20 days.. see how other things in life is also starting to fall into place as you go along.
Have a great Friday night!
Wait, you jumped from Day 8 to Day 12? You cheated on your challenge!!?
Nope, I didn’t. But my videos in between were posted on my other Empower Network blog.
Watch them HERE
Day 12/90 –
Got stuck in traffic this morning and started seeing how the chain effects of that delay could impact my day and all that I needed to do. The result? You’re getting a “live-from-traffic” video today.
Anyways, topic of today is Self-Reliance. We have two parts of self-reliance, one is self-deprecation and the other is self-conceit.
With self-deprecation you believe in preconceived notions about what you may or may not be good at, putting limits to your life and ideas. You would be literally strangling your dreams.
Self-conceit on the other hand makes you believe that you don’t need anyone, you become boastful and arrogant.
Both of these two can be very damaging for your chances of becoming successful. Work on it, be aware and control them so that you can open up a way of getting to where you want to be.
