One of the truisms about life (one often ignored, of course) is that when you FEEL good – good things somehow seem to happen to you.
Other hand, when you feel bad – down in the dumps, so to speak – the “negativity” seems to just “flow” towards you instead of the other way around.
Take a sip of your morning coffee or evening brew right about now, and stop to ponder this for a second, my friend.
I bet you’ll agree with me that if you look back at your life and analyze how good things happened to me – it was because you were either feeling good at the time or working upon feeling good.
Ditto for bad/negative things.
This then brings us to another truism – that we must feel good at all times, REGARDLESS of external circumstances, and though that might sound impossible to do – it’s very possible, my friend.
Let me give you an example.
My wife was feeling down for a few days prior to yesterday – which was when we had a long, lengthy phone conversation – and guess what, after working through the “why’s and wherefore’s” of why she was feeling bad, and the “core reasons” (which were hard for her to even pinpoint) – she felt like a BILLION bucks after the conversation.
And this morning, she’s “fresh as a daisy” and grinning from ear to ear like a Cheshire cat, hehe, and can’t stop telling me about the GOOD things that happened to her.
And this without doing anything physical at all, mind you, my friend.
Last, but not least – no – it’s NOT about just being positive.
The next time you feel down in the dumps, simply “tell” yourself to be positive, and report back.
I’ll bet it doesn’t do much, if at all to resolve the situation.
Other hand, add feelings in the RIGHT way – and guess what – the dark clouds seem to lift all of a sudden.
And one of the KEYS, my friend to staying in a positive state ALL day long – to literally “radiate” exuberance, confidence and GUSTO is to feel good about your physical self as well.
By this I don’t mean you stop to admire your biceps every time you pass a mirror.
I don’t mean you “primp and preen” at the local gym in front of the “babes”, hehe.
No – what I mean is you feel good about your body INTERNALLY – as opposed to just externally – and THAT, my friend, can only happen when you incorporate a) the right routines into your workout – and b) most importantly, the DEEP BREATHING.
I write tomes about this in the 0 Excuses Fitness book, and also go into exacting detail on the breathing part – including a SECRET key (only explained in the videos) which tells you how to go from “huff and puff” to “serene calmness” in less than 30 seconds flat.
And that’s just one of the secrets off the top of my head, my friend.
Now, some people will read this and shake their heads saying “yeah, but I don’t have the time to do that”.
Huh?? Don’t have the time? Are you kidding me?
If you’ve got time to check emails, drive to work, unwind after a hard day with a “beverage of choice”, and everything else that folks manage to fit into your day – well then guess what – you’ve got time for this, my friend.
And guess what else – you can do this WITHOUT having to forego any of the other activities.
15 minute workouts – short, sweet and effective – but you do need to know HOW to do ’em, of course.
Now, I don’t know about you – but if someone offered me the key to feeling great all day long instead of the “run down” feeling the general populace experiences on a daily basis – well – I’d grab it right now.
And so should you, my friend.
Grab your copy of the 0 Excuses Fitness System right NOW, my friend. It’ll be the best Christmas shopping you ever do for yourself.
P.S. – And yes, we’re open for business during the holiday season – no worries there!
