Choices : Three Ways to Make Better Ones
You are the reflection of what you tolerate.
One of the best lesson you could get from reading Brian Klemmer”s The Compassionate Samurai” is: Mediocrity is the highest form of selfishness.
In the same way that your financial health is a reflection of how you have behaved financially in the past, your health and physique is a direct reflection of the lifestyle choices you have made in the past.
Once the doorbell is rung, you cannot undo that. If the eggs are scrambled, you cannot reverse that.
Today you have the choice of making the right decision. Your agenda reflects you
Here are three valuable tips to make better choices a staple in your life.1
Make starting your day with 15 minutes of positive reading part of your daily improvement diet.
One Olympic lifting session a month wont make you step on the podium at the Rio Olympics. Agreed? Many people read a self-improvement book once in a while, and expect permanent results. The drive needs a daily boost. As Zig Ziglar used to say:
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
A shower has an expiry date.
Successful students of mine like Juan Carlos Simo, who apply this habit daily, have made tremendous gains in all aspects of their life.
Outcome should dictate the choices
When is the last time you have eaten anything by accident?
You actually got mugged by a dozen donuts who forced themselves in your stomach ?
When picking up a food selection, beforehand, put yourself in a state of mind of what do you want to achieve in your life. Now is the best time to the best choice to achieve that goal. Cashew butter on a celery stick will get you a better workout than a chocolate glazed donut.
What will get you closer to large muscular triceps? Jaw clenching weighted dips or pursed lips kickbacks?
List behaviors in your daily agenda like if they already really happened, and put the reward besides it.
In your agenda, it would look this. Once you completed, put a check mark on it.
- Ate 3 g of protein per kg of bodyweight, made me recover faster, and cut my cravings for carbs.
- Did 8 sets of 3 @ 90% on power cleans, got me closer to achieving my vertical jump.
I learned this valuable, trick from of the highest paid business consultant in the World, it has proven to be the most effective way to write down daily goals.
Put these three habits in practice and see you results accelerate
Have a joyful and productive day
