Work has been getting a little busy lately. Yesterday was a 15-hour day. However, I did take lunch.
I found when I got to the hotel yesterday, I did not have ANY desire to go to the gym. I was tired. It pissed me off a little. I became angry with myself for making the decision not to go. I tried to use all my tricks to motivate myself. It wasn't happening.
So, I didn't go.
Now, anyone that knows me personally would know that would prey on my mind. So, I asked myself how that wouldn't happen again. How can I make it so that, no matter what, I can work out when I'm supposed to?
My brain came up with a simple answer. Put the weights that I have in my office that I never use (since I go to the gym) into the back of the car I drive everyday. If I know that day is going to be a long one, I pull them out after lunch and work out, no matter where I am...no excuses. (I know I'll look funny...can you imagine a guy with a shaved head in khakis, dress shoes and polo shirt doing bicep curls with dumbbells in a parking lot somewhere? I'll be lucky if I don't get arrested.)
Remember, if something is a MUST for you, you will make it happen, NO MATTER WHAT.
Start living life the way you want. Live life on YOUR terms, not someone elses' terms.
If you're not living life to the level you know you deserve, sit down right now and take the first step. Design your life, map out your goals to your specifications.

Now, take the second step. Go to the first goal and the massive action plan you've designed for yourself. Take the first step towards that specific goal.

...and keep rockin'!
