#265 Work on the Body
Is working on your body one of your top priorities?
It doesn’t matter if you’re beginner or advanced, we all should be working on our bodies.
Maybe your version is committing to walking one mile per day, for the next 100 days. It doesn’t matter if you’re a couch potato or a world-class athlete, you’re going to get better. You’re sure as hell not going to get any worse!
Accountability + Strategy
Accountability and Strategy. You can’t have one and not the other.
It’s not a coincidence that most successful people do some sort of daily exercise. You gotta get the blood flowing. It's a natural antidepressant. It helps boost your confidence. It helps make you feel better. It helps the creaks not feel as bad. A body in motion stays in motion, and a body at rest stays at rest.
Don't allow this life to pass you by because you're not willing to commit to moving.
What’s Your Minimum?
I'm not saying to compete in bodybuilding. I'm not saying compete in power lifting. I'm not saying you have to look like an underwear model.
What I am saying is that you need to find out what your strategy is. What is a daily success habit that you can adhere to every day, no matter what?
It’s Why I Love Lunge & Learn
This is exactly why I love Lunge & Learn so much. It’s my daily minimum that I stick to every day – no matter what.
Not familiar with Lunge & Learn? It consists of lunging 400-800 meters every day while listening to personal development material. No matter what.
Creating a Lunge & Learn streak is the accountability I need to keep myself between the lines and progressing forward. It doesn’t matter if I can’t tie my shoes, if it’s pouring outside, or if it’s -10 degrees outside… I’m still going to hit my lunges.
That’s what I’ve committed to.
What Will You Commit to?
What’s your version? What will you commit to?
Are you going to walk on the treadmill for 15 minutes? Are you going to jog around the block every day? Are you going to commit to going to the gym Monday, Wednesday, Friday?
What’s your strategy? Write it down. Share it with those friends or family closest to you that will hold you accountable.
If you don’t have these key pieces of the puzzle in place, it will never happen.
Get Addicted to Feeling Good
How would you say you feel right now?
This is interesting because when you don’t commit to anything other than unhealthy, lazy habits, then you get used to not feeling good. It’s your “normal.”
On the other side, if you can commit to one thing every day – no matter how small – then this principle works in your favor. You get addicted to feeling good.
Personally, I’m addicted to how my body and mind feel. The post-workout, post-lunge feeling is one like no other. It’s like a “runners high.” Not only does my body feel great, but my mind is free and clear to function at a high level.
