A comeback is a huge thing to be able to pull off. Last week I shared some thoughts on the killer of dreams – procrastination. I received a flood of emails and reactions from you. Thank you btw for those who took the time to share your thoughts – it’s always greatly appreciated.
I believe it struck such a chord because most all of us suffer from procrastination – to one degree or another.
I closed the newsletter by asking you two questions:
What is the one habit/thing that you are doing/not doing that is holding you back from moving forward with your biggest dream?
What are you going to do about it?
For me, it’s wanting to improve every aspect of my physical health by having a consistent work-out routine. Consistent, for me, means daily.
A few years ago, I was in the best shape of my life (P-90X for nine straight months did it). Man did it feel good. About six months ago, life started throwing me some curves/drama and I proceeded to spend a lot of time dealing with it all. It was an enormous drain.
I make no excuses and own it all, but I soon stopped consistently doing the very thing I needed to be doing as I was going through this crappy chapter of my life.
Anyway, after last week’s newsletter, I also asked myself these same two questions and the answer came quickly – get in better shape.
Since then, I’ve worked out every single day for an hour and half. Seven days in row is not a comeback and it hasn’t been easy (brutal actually) but it sure feels good to have my momentum going in this direction instead of the other. And my hope is I can continue to slay the beast of procrastination so that a week from today I can share with you that I’m up to fourteen days in a row.
But it sure does feel good.
How’d you do?
What did you do?
And if your answer is, “nothing” then my next question is how’s that feel? I don’t ask this to send you on a guilt trip. I ask in hopes it will inspire you to begin your comeback today, addressing whatever it is that is holding you back from having a happier, more empowered life.
You deserve it because this world needs you and your dreams. It really does.
As always, thank you for your time and my very best to you,
