I get it you are busy.

You have things to do. You have a family, a job, a life to live, but what are your priorities?

And are you making the most out of your time, and the effort that you exert throughout the day?

Some things in life need to be non-negotiable other things are considered trivial shit that should not be a priority, yet most of us confuse the two, and spend more time and money on things that net us negative results.

Actions dictate outcomes not thought processes.

Everybody wants to be successful; everybody wants to be fit and healthy but not many people are willing to take the action or make the sacrifices that is necessary to achieve the goals they deep down desire.

I hear it every day in my profession.

I need to lose some weight or get off medication, but most people aren’t willing to take action and do the work.

 

If you want money, you need to work hard.

If you want good grades, you need to study hard.

If you want to be fit, you need to train hard and eat right.

 

The common word is “hard”, and I’ll say it repeatedly that nothing good comes easy.

Nothing is impossible, but it takes work.

 

No one is entitled to an easy life, so everyone must put in the work and exert some effort for what they truly want out of life want.

Ya see, we all have visions of success on all levels.

Nobody WANTS to be a loser, or fail at things, but many do, and they complain about being a “victim” or un-lucky, yet they keep doing the wrong things daily.

They do the wrong things because they fall into a pattern of bad habits that prevent them from achieving their goals.

I am guilty of this when it comes to spending money, as opposed to saying no to doing things that could put me in a monthly deficit.

When it comes to my fitness and being productive, I am always spot on, however, managing finances is something that I struggle with, yet I am working on finding solutions on how to be better.

One way I have found to be helpful in achieving what you want is to have a list of non-negotiable items that you never fail to do, so I am trying to figure out ways to do this in certain areas of my life.

Here are some examples of my non-negotiable items that I stick to 99% of the time that apply to my health and fitness.

Never miss a workout.

It’s in my schedule 6 days a week, and I treat each workout as important as a dentist appointment. If something drastic happens and I can’t do it at the time I wanted, I cancel something less important and get it done. The more workouts you miss, the easier it gets to miss another. That’s how bad habits are formed.

 

Get 8 hours of sleep.

This is one of the most important things you can do for yourself, yet many people fail to do it. Binge-watching tv isn’t a great tradeoff for your sleep, therefore it isn’t advisable to do so. You will not only have more energy, be in a better mood, you will also keep your immune system stronger, and get sick less.

 

Hitting the snooze button.

If you do this, it will start your day in a panic and it will go downhill from there. If you get to bed on time, you won’t need another 9 minutes of interrupted sleep.

 

Eat flawlessly 5 days a week.

You rarely see me eating bread or sugar Mon-Fri. I have myself programmed not to do it, and regardless of where I eat, I try to avoid anything that will cause a negative effect. It’s just a matter of not giving into instant gratification. Sure, a candy bar would taste good when you eat it, but it’s not worth how you will feel later.

 

Letting negative people suck me into their circle of misery.

Even family members. I have many friends and family that complain about everything wrong in the world, and I always try to change the subject, and avoid all confrontational conversations. I will either avoid these people or have an edited relationship with them and not talk business or politics with them. When someone is relentless, I end the visit or conversation and move on.

 

So, to sum it up, everything we want in life is actually attainable and right in front of us.

 

I always say that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way, but if you don’t, you will make an excuse. Therefore, I am searching for ways to structure my finances better so I can be more profitable in my business and less stressed out when my cash flow isn’t going the way I envisioned or planned.

We all can be fit, healthy, and successful, it’s just a matter of how bad you want it, and what are you willing to do for it.

 

Committed to your success

Matt
