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.
Went on a run this morning and it was the longest run I’ve done for at least the last 2 years! I used to be in a bad spot.. At some point I even smoked a pack of cigarettes per day. Since I started working on my mindset and my personal growth, things have changed.
Life feels brighter and happier for each day!
Topic of today relates to this and how I want you to NOT be a shell of yourself(like that cool sculpture we found at the Hirshorn Sculpture Garden). We were just walking by and spotted it, felt like it would be a good image to put up for the topic of the day(plus I was dying from my run and needed a break!)
Work on yourself, expand yourself and make sure you utilize all you can of your abilities.
It feels AWESOME.
Have a great Sunday evening!
Wow, I can’t believe it is day 7 already… Kinda scary how fast time passes sometimes.
I have had 7 days of making one video per day. It’s been good but also very challenging at times. Some days I know exactly what I want to tell you guys. Other days I have to dig deep to think of what you would find interesting or valuable. PLEASE if you have a preference on what direction you want me to take in these videos, topics etc, let me know.
I have also had 7 days of my new workout regime. I have a set of exercises I have to do each single day.. Same things, every day.. but some exercises I increase reps/sets per day, others I increase per week.. I already feel stuff happening so we’ll see how I will feel in 90 days! woooh
Anyways, I’m losing track here.. Topic of today is one that fascinates me… How your environment can affect your ability to reach your goals. How you should surround yourself with likeminded people who aim for the same accomplishments as yourself, and how by doing this you can be so much more successful! Get together, work together for the common goal and see how much smoother it gets.
I have to say that the world wide web has made this world so much smaller for me, and helped me connect with other likeminded people from all over the place! Through my blog, twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.. It makes it easier to connect and grow.
So, that’s all for today folks!
Happy Friday, everyone!
I hope you have had an amazing week! I know I did..
This is my first Friday during the 90 Day Video Opportunity, and to keep your attention I decided to switch out the tree/park background and went somewhere different.
Hopefully you have seen my last few videos where I give some hands on suggestions on how to handle every day challenges. Today’s topic relates to all of my previous videos. How, you say? Well, without integrity none of the other techniques will last for long. You need to build your integrity with some pretty solid pillars to be able to keep this up. Honestly, this is my bad, but this video should probably have been number 1, and not number 6.. oh well, there you go.. That’s part of the process of learning I guess.
Anyways, I am getting late for a BBQ with my friends now so I gotta duck out. I hope you enjoy my video and that you have a fantastic nice and relaxing Friday night.
Talk to you tomorrow!
PS. Would love if you look me up these other spots as well:
Wow, day five and my muscles are sore. Only 85 more days to go on this!
Topic of today is how to prevent anger from controlling your thoughts and your every day life. How important it is to not let yourself carry your frustrations with you through your day. In the end, you are the one who get hurt the most from carrying anger around.
Do you think that guy in traffic that cut you off in the morning rush hour really remembers your encounter all day? No, let it go and move on. Leave space in your mind for growth and positivity. Don’t let anger bury your mind. Don’t let your anger become your disease.
Day 4 of 90!! 🙂
Today I talk about some steps you can take to become more efficient. I take you from the roots to the fruits.
These are steps I have been applying to my life for the past 7 months now and I have to say the results have been much better than I expected.
Enjoy and go be more efficient!
