Over the weekend I sat and watched an amazing training from stage by Darren Hardy, the founder of SUCCESS Magazine and it blew my freaking mind.
As I listened to him explain why some people are successful over other people, a rock hard, old, stale muffin flew upside my head. Or at least it felt like that was what it was. I was slapped with the “OH CRAP” stick.
It was almost as surprising for me to realize this as it was to see on the news years ago that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were calling marriage a thing of the past……god that was a sad sad day.
When I talk “Success” I don’t mean only financial. Success is in everything we do! We’re successful in our career, our workouts, diet, brands, blogs, relationships, etc, but OF COURSE everything can grow better and bigger.
So the question I always asked was “What makes the 3% of the population successful?” “Why can my FB friend crush the gym 6 days a week and stay on point with her diet without straying??” UGH! I used to get frustrated. It had gotten to the point when I was struggling without a job that I didn’t want to hear about others success. I didn’t want to hear people hit their nutrition, fitness or relationship goals, my life sucked, so there’s should too. Not really, but you know what I mean.
I have the answer to success my friend….the answer is CHOICES. Yes we have fear, but do we choose for it to control us?
I know, I know, you want to reach through the screen and wallop me. “A choice? Really Kris??” Yes, choices.
You see we are an accumulation of ALL the Choices, all the little nitty gritty choices, the hard, the easy, the fun, the sucky, choices we’ve made up until now.
If we look at 2 people, “Lisa”, in shape, healthy, successful in business and has a loving relationship with open communication and we look at “Sam” a person who hates her job, her hubby stinks, she’s broke and overweight. The PAIN is the same for both of these gals, the only difference is the choice they make. Do you really think Lisa wakes up at 5:30 am every winter morning to go for a run, eat anything less tasty than fruit loops and say “you’re right” to her man even if he’s wrong? NO! Do you think she loves calling new prospects for her business when its uncomfortable? No. But she does these things for the longterm effects of her life. Sam choices not to and well, she complains about her life.
I’m on fire writing this post right now because I can see clear with the choices I choose to not choose. Does that make sense? I see today the choices I need to make, uncomfortable as heck to have the life I desire, the freedom I love, the health, body, fun that I live. Today I declare that the stinkiest and most uncomfortable things that I have to do to get me to where I need to be, will be done. Will you??
I have my “To Do” list right in front of me and a snuggly dog by my side. Wednesday morning is pretty darn good 😉
Time for coffee and a good weight session. See this was my choice for this morning instead of catching up on sleep as I did yesterday. *bad blogger*
Comment Below! Will you commit to getting uncomfortable with the choices you make and make the ones that will gain success in your life?
