Halloween is almost here which is always fun, so ensure to wear your costumes to work out on Thursday!!
Aside from that highlight and to fill you in, I try and read/listen to about a book a week (fitness, nutrition, business, leadership) to help me be a better leader for my team and clients. I am in the middle of re-reading of “Crushing It” by Gary Vaynerchuk and thought of you!
The book is about building a business and personal brand, and in it, Gary made a comment that really hit me.
“You can have ANYTHING, just NOT EVERYTHING” so you must choose wisely.
This is such a simple concept, but mind blowing and a great mental reframe, so wanted to share so you get value too!
As an example, and how this relates to you….
You eat cake for breakfast, sugar in large quantities, alcohol every day, and virtually no veggies or lean proteins.
But if you do this, you will sacrifice being healthy, lean, fit and most likely long-term happiness.
You can build a BILLION-dollar business from scratch, with all the fame and fortune that comes with it….
But if you do, chances are you will have to sacrifice/spend 50+ years of working 80-hour work weeks, forgoing leisure, family time and relaxation (at least for the first 3 decades of the journey).
You can wake up early, get to boot camp 4x per week, eat lean proteins, veggies, and lots of hydration to get the health, fitness and body of your dreams….
But if you do, chances are you will have to sacrifice being lazy, going to bed late, eating any sugary or sweet foods that taste great in high quantities, and ultimately forgoing the immediate gratifications.
There are just 3 little examples, but they carry over to any aspect of life, and by now, you get the point!
The liberating feeling and call to action is that you can have ANYTHING YOU WANT if you put your mind and full dedication to it. Just know there is a price/sacrifice for everything.
