Create Your Support System: Community
This is a genius idea . . . maybe the best in the book called The Longevity Project. Put together a small circle of friends to do this with you. People from your church, the job, the neighborhood. Share your plans and performance. Tell one another everything that you are up to and hold each other accountable. Help one another out stay motivated. This is structure. This is magic. This is the synergy of the pack. It’s the mammal’s gift: Use it. Don’t go solo, it is very rare that solo is successful, share your experience, learn from others, inspire newer members of the pack, grow together. Get a coach to help you get it going.
Polar Smart Coaching Training Tip: Pick a BIG Fight
Pick an event or challenge that you have not done before that is outside your current view of your ability to complete, or do something you have done before but on a whole new level. If your goal is to truly lift yourself to the next level in your life then you need to be thinking bigger. You are going to have to force yourself to adapt and get some new capacities. It will not happen unless you make it happen. Line it up, put your reputation on the line by declaring it before others, then with something at stake go about making it happen. You are either going to talk about it and make excuses, or just go do it! It’s not that complicated, it really depends on your commitment to have it happen and be the person you say you want to be. Creating accountability and picking a worthy fight is the make or break point in your commitment. Create the environment to succeed, by thinking BIG, taking action, and commit to your goal, share it with others to make it real, reinforce your commitment daily, then do it no matter what. Pick a big fight! My next new challenge Spartan Beast event 11/3
Nutrition Tip: Food Rules Eat Slowly
Not just so you’ll be more likely to know when to stop. Eat slowly enough to savor your food; you’ll need less of it to feel satisfied. If it is a food experience rather than mere calories you’re after, the slower you eat, the more of an experience you will have. There is an Indian proverb that gets at this idea: “Drink your food, chew your drink.” In other words, eat slowly enough, and chew thoroughly enough, to liquefy your food, and move your drink around in your mouth to thoroughly taste it before swallowing. The recommendation sounds a bit clinical perhaps, but try following it at least to the point of fully appreciating what’s in your mouth. Another strategy, encoded in a table manner that’s been all but forgotten: “Put down your fork between bites.”
“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don’t have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.” Jim Rohn
