Athletes who will be participating in the Summer Olympics next month are not dabblers. They are focused finishers who never give up no matter what. As I have watched the Olympics over the years I have been amazed at the work and dedication which they demonstrate consistently often starting when they are just kids. I could never imagine giving up that much of my life to compete for a medal which I didn’t even get paid for. What I did not want to look at, was it is so not about that. It is about giving your all to be the best in what ever you do. That’s all, just making a commitment to do something and then following through for years. I am pretty sure there were many days they did not want to get up before dawn to practice their sport but did it anyway.
I don’t want to be an Olympic Athlete. I just want to live the healthiest, happiest life possible which seems a pretty big goal to me. I have to be done dabbling and become 100% committed in my quest. I am giving myself 1 FULL YEAR to determine if I have what it takes. Have what it takes to release unhealthy weight, build a strong, prosperous business and lay a foundation for a plan to follow the rest of my life. At the Beachbody Summit this past week, I realized with the exception of Kathy Smith Project You, Type 2 I have never completed one Beachbody Program in the time frame it laid out. I did the 12 Weeks of Project You, so I know I can do it. I just have never committed strongly enough I guess. I have never made it my #1 goal to take care of my health.
On my way back from Las Vegas yesterday, we were listening to audios from Success Magazine. Darren Hardy mentioned he had heard once if you had more than 3 Top Priorities, you had none. You would be too fragmented to do any of them well. So my 3 Top Priorities are to focus daily on what Carl listed as the 3 Vital Core Behaviors:
1. Invite, Invite, Invite.
2. Be proof that the products work.
3. Self Development.
I commit to doing at least one thing in each area to the fullest every day, no days off. And it begins today. I would like to begin by inviting any of you who are interested in getting healthy and/or losing weight to join me and I have several ways you can. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what you are looking for. My Beachbody 1 Year Total Immersion, Dr Fuhrman group is just one of them.
Beginning today at Day 1 of 365! Excited and eager to begin.
