One of the things that I always ask everyone (well, on my coaching calls that is) in terms of progressing at anything (life, fitness, workouts, relationships etc) is this.
HOW FAR AHEAD are you – right now – of both the herd and yourself?
Por ejempelo, lets say you got a goal to do 100 pushups at ONE shot.
Just up and down, up and down ... (no pun intended, hehe, especially given that email on supposed porno or what not).
Chest to the floor, back up. ALL the way.
A 100 of those suckers at ONE GO.
Now, you know the how of how to get there – or if youdont, Pushup Central will teach you. The techniques, I mean!
But really, when you DO the thing.
ARE you doing ‘em throughout the day?
ARE YOU doing what you can?
ARE YOU doing the isometrics if you can’t do a single pushup?
ARE you focusing on different variations?
Most of all, and this encapsulates all of the above – how much do you really want it?
If you do, you’ll likely be doing all of the above, and then some.
Ahead of yourself.
And the herd, that tries once a day and gives up.
I know which side I’d rather be on.
I dont know if you guys have noticed, but I have my writing done in advance too.
To prepare for that rainy day where I dont “feel like writing” (which of course never happens, but just in case).
Do YOU have that sort of seriousness about your LIFE – and BUSINESS?
To make plans -backup plans – and all of that in the flow?
No, that ain’t contradictory!
If you do, I can tell you which way you’re going in life.
And if you don’t, you are either stagnant, or going down, and they’re both the one and the same thing.
All fo rnow!
PS – It’s been said it requires 10,000 hours of practice to really get good at something. I often say that absolute mastery of an exercise is something VERY FEW, if ANY people can achieve, including the great Bruce Lee who did thumb pushups for hundreds of reps per set!
How about a handstand thumb pushup??
(Note – dont try it!)
And so forth.
Point is, if you want to achieve, then DO. And do more than the herd, and outdo yourself too. It shoul dbe a competition with YOU first, and then the rest !
