These days we have so many distractions. The news, social media, movies, shows, etc. Once you understand this it’s pretty amazing how much you can actually achieve. The news is nothing but negativity. Im not saying that the issues aren’t important but if we were being honest we know the news doesn’t provide healthy dialogue. Thats achieved with your peers and family. The shows on tv are distracting you from your goals! I removed all streaming services a couple years ago and we are doing just fine. We are getting things done around the house. Such as making our own garden and improving the yard. We have more time to workout and stay in shape. We talk more with our kids and each other. The world is always going to be crazy and messed up. I prefer to focus on my goals and what I can control which is my own life. Once you focus on your goals and personal growth the world doesn’t seem so negative. Remember control what you can control! Thats your own life. Constantly worrying about stuff you see on the internet is toxic and just a plain waste of time! Have a blessed day!
As I’ve grown in these last few years. I have changed how I look at things which includes business, friendships, relationships etc. One of the biggest things has been letting people go. I had some very close friends that I hardly speak to anymore. Im not angry or vengeful but sometimes it does bother me a little. The thing is after I let these people go I actually feel better than ever. Im lifting weights and eating right. I’ve quit drinking alcohol except for wine or a beer every once in a while. I had a few glasses of wine this past week. I hadn’t had any alcohol for almost 7 months prior to that. My discipline has gotten better. My business is growing and Im supporting my family. Bottom line is sometimes letting go of people actually is great for you spiritually. I enjoy my own company like I always have but now its like a superpower. When you can hangout by yourself that is a blessing. I know a lot of people who absolutely hate being alone but I enjoy it. So stay strong and invest in yourself. You are capable of great things when you give yourself the time! Have a blessed day!
I didn’t get to post earlier today. I slept in after last night. We had fun hanging out talking about life music and business. The ups the downs and the hope for a brighter future. We have different lives but we all have similar goals. Im truly blessed to have friends who motivate and at times educate. We all need to talk more and honestly just chill. The world is very crazy right now but it has always been crazy to me. Human beings are really cool. We create, build, invent, and so much more. These days people are literally bashing humanity and themselves. I find it kind of strange honestly. I mean I have my frustrations with people and the way we choose to live in this world but damn we’re not all that bad. Im trying to stay positive and you should too. Let’s start by working on ourselves first. Thats the one thing we can control ourselves! So start there. Workout, write something, grow something, etc. We can build a better place for all of us.
Anything worth doing is going to take time and effort. Everything these days is so convenient and fast. Getting in shape is still one of the hardest things to accomplish. I’m taking a little longer than expected to achieve my goal but I’m pushing. The holidays didn’t help lol but I’m focused and continuing to move forward. If anyone needs some advice or guidance just let me know!
Living a healthy lifestyle can be difficult for some people these days. Especially when you’re a parent and you’re trying to balance work and family. A lot of my peers say I just don’t have time. We always have time to get into shape you just have to dedicate yourself 30 to 45 minutes a day. Also continuing your routine weekly is very important. Consistency is key! The gym is not a necessity. I prefer to workout from home mostly because no one is in my way. Some people struggle with this. They say they lack motivation. I get it! I have a list of things I do that help me when I workout from home.
- I turn on Rocky or another movie with martial arts. This is a big help for me. Motivational movies or tv shows help a lot!
2. I switch up my routine. On chest day I do pushups or other chest exercises besides bench press.
3. I put on earphones and listen to music or books, speakers that I like etc.
4. Stick to your schedule no matter what!
5. Create a nice workout space.
Just remember to always push yourself!
I hope this helps!
