First things first, one of my fave motivational vids…
Take a minute and watch it here:
Now, consider this…
It’s what you DO that your mind registers.
That’s what determines how you feel about that wonderful, mysterious and powerful thing called YOU.
Your self-image is the #1 thing that impacts how successful you are in any goal.
And your self-image mirrors your ACTIONS.
When you first wake up in the morning, how do you move? Do you take small steps with your head down? What does the expression on your face say?
Pay attention to this, then do me a solid and try this little exercise:
1. Make your first strides out of bed long and purposeful. Throw your shoulders back and lift your head. Relax your face (there’s a lot of brain tissue dedicated to sensing the face, so any scrunching or tightening contributes greatly to your overall felt sense of tension). Try to embody this dominant, relaxed posture as you go about your morning routine.
2. When you walk out the door, strut like you mean it. Imagine the Bee Gees Stayin’ Alive is your soundtrack. Hell, you think Barry Gibb is singing about you.
“You can tell by the way I use my walk…”
Damn right you can.
This is what being a badass looks like.
3. The first time you cross a busy intersection, say to yourself as you cross, “God I’m spectacular.” This’ll probably make you laugh, and that’s good. You’ll look and feel like you don’t have a care in the world.
Do these three steps with total commitment, and I defy you to not have good things happen to you today.
Remember, no one else in the world is like you.
That makes you special.
You’re here for a reason.
One out of 100 million sperm.
Later, hot stuff….
