Wednesday, March 16

This week we've talked about goals in the Open along with getting nutrition straight to line us up with our goals. Some of you may want to get bar muscle ups, some may want to do a pull up, others may want to be able to run a mile without walking or complete a benchmark workout at the prescribed weight and movements. Many of us would like to shed some body fat to look and feel better and to make life a little easier each day. I'm pretty certain that everyone wants to be the best person possible. Setting goals is a huge part of getting where we want to be. So what are you going to do about reaching your goals? We all get 24 hours in a day. Not more, not less, just 24 hours each and every day. What are you doing with your 24 hours to reach your goals?

If your goals are fitness related then taking one hour out of 24 is only using up 4.2% of your day. I think we can all make room for 4.2% of our day to be spent at the gym. If your goals revolve around transforming your diet to lose weight are you approaching each meal with your goal in mind? It's easy to let the moment dictate our decisions, but each moment that we give in and stray from our goal is a moment in our 24 hour day that did not help us reach where we've set our mind to go.

You are in charge of your 24 hours and how you use your time to better yourself. Be the best you, the healthiest you, the happiest you. Finding success over time is the best possible motivation because you'll learn that getting out of your comfort zone really can show you that you can push through perceived limitations. Stick it out when times get tough and grow daily. Use success as well as pain and setbacks for fuel. Take responsibility for you. Sacrifice your today, your right now, your this moment, for a better tomorrow. The key to your success is within you.

This guy talks a little about becoming wealthy, but I know I felt motivation on all sorts of levels from listening.
