Starting off and taking action is the hardest #Decision you’ll make but it’s worth it! So, it’s January 1st, 2021. Did you take that 1st step, that first bite, read that first page, walk that first minute, do that first push up? This is typically a day we can all reset our minds and start that journey, once again to our own greatness. The question still remains, DID YOU?
I hope you did and as a father of 3 girls, husband for over 11yrs and Entrepreneur/Intrapreneur I can honestly say I did at 6:35am on 1/1/2021! I woke up determined to get this first workout in and read 15 mins a day, starting today. I am writing this not only for you but for myself in all honesty. See one of the greatest steps in life is the first one taken. Along with something called #Accountability! It was not easy after being up until 1:17am the night before. My family and I celebrated the New Year and stretched into the new year wee hours. That didn’t matter when I knew in my mind, the one promise I must keep on a daily basis are the ones I make to myself. This is where #Identity is built.
As I drove back from the health club. I felt that sense of accomplishment and like I knew I added to my identity bucket. This marked a beginning for me. One that I have messed up many, many times before. This is the restart in my mind and with taking that first action, today. The first step feels so good!
Renewing my commitment to myself, reconnecting my mind to my actions and delivering was very rewarding this morning. I hope this is the case for you. If it wasn’t, then guess what? January 1st isn’t the only day to take that first step again. Everyday there is that opportunity and if you can just take that first step, again and keep that promise to yourself, eventually you will break through!
My goal as a contributor on VT Post is to give you some insights into my life, my mind, share what I’ve done at my level in life. After 45 yrs and many, many mistakes along with a couple home runs.
So many sayings running through my mind like, the journey of a 1000 miles starts with one step. How do you eat an Elephant, one bite at a time. “If you had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment would you capture it or just let it slip away” – Eminem
I love that last quote from Eminem and I hope you take it to heart. I know this is a simple read and probably one you’ve read 1000 times in your life. Take that step be that guy/gal that has 364 days to go to feel like the CHAMPION, you deserve to be, if you put in the work!
