Keep moving.  Don’t let yourself settle in before it’s time.  When I get home from a crushing day at the office, I immediately change and hit the gym, at least 5 days a week.  I know that if I sit down for 1 minute or make 1 innocent phone call, I’m toast; there’s no way I’ll make it to the gym after that.  So it is with any endeavor that begs discipline.

I once read that over 80% of the fuel consumed by a space shuttle is used up at the time of lift off–do you understand?

rocky hill ahead

Your path is a blessed one. As long as you walk it, you will be accompanied by 2 guardian angels.

The first angel goes by many names: Your Inner Presence. Your Higher Self. Your Guiding Light. Your Muse.

I was at the “Unleash the Power Within” event last week, and it was outstanding. Rather than regurgitate the syllabus which would be unfair to Tony Robbins, I’m going to write about the incidental lessons that I learned.

A brown horse

Recently, I have been working on improving my consistency in meeting the needs I discussed in my post “Live a Life of Balance.” Eating a nutritious, unprocessed diet 6 days a week. Working out at least 4 days a week. Going out almost every night. And writing 8 posts a month (I will attempt more as my discipline gets tighter).

Then just before the holiday season, I came down with a bad cold that wrecked my rhythm. I couldn’t go to the gym for a while because of my poor physical condition. That’s fine, but when Christmas rolled around, I found myself also eating unhealthy, and not just for that day, but continuously until New Year’s Eve. With the start of the New Year, I renewed my commitment to healthy eating and exercise. I fell off the horse for a bit, but then I got back on. It’s very likely I’ll fall off again at some point in the future, but I also know that no matter what, I’ll get back on because of my commitment to consistency.

Keep Moving

Steam train

Newton’s First Law of Motion states than an object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.

When you are sitting on your butt doing nothing, you will find that it is very easy to continue to do so, and the longer you stay that way, the more effort it takes to change out of that mental state and get your butt into motion. It’s like people who decide to take a break after high school or college before continuing their education. Of course it’s important to take breaks, but if the break is too long, it becomes too difficult to get going again. 1 year off becomes 2 years. 2 years rolls into 3 until one day they’ve forgotten their original intentions.
