There really is no secret to success. It’s quite simple when you think about it. Show up. Work hard. Measure your progress. Adjust as necessary. Repeat.
When you look at it on paper, it looks simple. But is it? Not really!
Have you ever heard anyone refer to their life as the “DAILY GRIND?”. They go on to explain how they have to get up, go to work, deal with a bunch of crap, listen to an annoying boss, struggle to find time for a workout, make dinner and go to bed only to have to get up and do it all over again the next day.
Sounds exciting and fulfilling, right?
I try to think of the “DAILY GRIND” a little differently. GRIND stands for: Get Ready…It’s a New Day!
Do you think of your days and weeks as mundane and boring? Are your goals exciting and igniting that fire in your belly?
Anthony Robbins says, “People aren’t lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.”
When you have inspiring goals, you WANT to get up early. You WANT to get up and get at it. Burning the midnight oil is no longer something you have to do but rather something you want to do.
I see this happen when our newer students get the “martial arts bug.” They go from saying that they don’t have the time in their scheduled to work out to finding time to train with us 2, 3 and sometimes even 4 times per week. What happened? Did they find the magic formula to add more hours in their day?
No. They were inspired! inspiration leads to motivation which leads to action which ultimately leads to progress. Progress is the magic elixir for happiness. Progress just feels good right!. When we see forward progress with our fitness, health, finances, business, and family goals, we are excited to show up the next day and “GRIND IT OUT.”
Get your GRIND on today!
