Blood and tears as they say, and thats the attitude you should adopt when your working out – or doing ANYTHING that MATTERS to you, for that matter.
If your not really giving that last rep ALL YOU HAVE – then your not doing it RIGHT!
If you ain’t working AS HARD as you can to achieve your goal – in fact, if your not thinking about whatever your goals are EACH AND EVERY WAKING MINUTE of the day – you ain’t doing it right!
If your making excuses – your not going to get anywhere. If you wimp out while doing a toughie (in terms of exercise), you’ll never progress. And so forth.
I speak about the Ten Commandments of Successful Physical Training in the book (right here, by the way: – The Book) and these 10 commandments, my friend, hold true when aspiring to achieve ANY goal in life, no matter what that is.
Looking to get fit? Looking to progress in your career? Looking to break out of that dead end job? Looking to increase your income? Well … those commandments apply to ALL these situations, and MORE, my friend.
And no, despite what some of you might think this is not mere “marketing spiel” from the “content mills” or what-have-you.
In terms of fitness … let me just say that over the past few days I’ve been waking up with a sore, WORKED TO THE BONE feeling, and I could probably sleep all day some of these days given how physically exhausted I am.
However, that is the PHYSICAL part. Mentally, I’m WAY MORE focused upon what I need to do than I would have been if I wasn’t this physically “worked to the bone”.
And note I AM NOT USING THE WORD “tired”!!
Doesnt make sense to you? Well, to further “pound it in” (no puns intended), I’ve pounded out 4 non fitness novellas over the past 2 weeks as well as working outdoors for a couple of hours a day (dont ask, long story) – and getting my exercise in REGULARLY.
And dealing with all the other things that we all deal with on a day to day basis.
In terms of exercises, I’ve been doing my usual 2 workouts a day but I’ve been switching up the order. Hell, I remember I did THREE workouts a couple of days ago when I was REALLY pressed for time.
And if I can do that – and still find time to get all my other stuff in – THEN YOU, my friend – have NO EXCUSES LEFT.
Last, but not least, these workouts were not simply “run of the mill workouts”. I did indeed sweat blood in them – so much so that my left pec (or, more accurately the area where the pec “meets” the rib cage) is SOORRRRRREEEEEE!
And thats today’s tip. Whatever you do – do it well – and give it YOUR ALL!
DO IT WITH YOUR HEART.
INFUSE PASSION INTO WHATEVER IT IS YOU ARE DOING!
Thats what counts at the end of the day.
