I picked this picture intentionally as it shows Rita in her Boot Camp Days… Rita could not do a push up or a burpee when she started but throughout Boot Camp and now her 6 Months of CrossFit she has always been one of the hardest workers in the gym! She has done an amazing job these 6 months and I could not be more proud or happy for all the changes she has made to make her life better. Now onto our blog post for the day, think of it as Motivation Monday!
YOU are the CEO of your life…
Let me kick this off with one of my favorite quotes…
“I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say ‘No, I won’t do it, I won’t behave this way anymore. I’m lonely and I need people around me, maybe I need to change my methods of behaving’, and then you do it.” ~ Leo Buscagila
I will say this once again…YOU are the CEO of your life.
By my own personal scientific estimate, about 99% of the problems in your life are because of YOU.
YOU are the CEO of your life in every arena and facet; for better or worse you are the technician, the manager, the accountant, the VP, the CFO, and ultimately CEO of everything.
YOU are the CEO of your eating, you and only you are responsible for the things you eat and put into your body.
YOU are the CEO of your fitness, you and only you decide to workout or not, to skip the training session or attend it. YOU decide to work at 100% or half-ass your training.
YOU are the CEO of your bank account; you control your financial status. You control how much money you make, save, and spend daily.
YOU are the CEO of your attitude, you decide to wake up in a good mood each day, you decide to take things in your stride, you decide to see the glass as half full or half empty.
YOU are the CEO of every situation, problem, and event you encounter in this life…YOU can’t control what happens to you but what YOU can control is how you react to those situations.
My point is to establish that you are the boss, you are in complete control of your life so let me ask you a handful of questions…
So far this year I want to know have YOU…
- Improved the quality of your health?
- Improved your financial status?
- Improved your work ethic on the job?
- Improved your relationship with friends, family, loved ones?
- Improved your eating habits?
- Improved your overall attitude?
- Improved the lives of others around you constantly each day?
Sometimes you have to look in the mirror and save your own life, nobody is going to save it for you.
You only have 86,400 seconds each day and the time is ticking away seconds by second, day by day… faster than ever.
Don’t waste another second of this life blaming someone else for your issues, problems, or situations…
YOU are in the driving seat.
YOU control your future.
If YOU have a dream – YOU need to go out and make it happen…
YOU have the power to do more than you can even imagine is possible, but YOU have decided what kind of life you want to live?
Today’s motivational video gets me every time I watch it. It is the story of a man who was told he would never walk unassisted again. He had all but given up. Until one day he decided to believe in himself again.
See what he achieved when he made the decision to change his life
If he and I can do this, YOU can do this too!
