What it takes to be your BEST

What it takes to be your BEST

Looking back at any accomplishment including physical change, you will discover that every journey is a series of many small steps that lead to a Big LEAP!

The Big Leap is the celebration…the acknowledgement of WINNING!

It’s the Glory!

Getting on the scale and seeing a number that gives you chills (in a good way).

Pushing up a weight that you once couldn’t budge

Seeing your six-pack for the first time.

Running a 5k effortlessly when you could barely run to the bathroom without passing out before!

In sports, it is winning the Super Bowl!

Or knocking out the Champ!

We all know the feeling of VICTORY!

That moment of ecstasy that drives us to success!

But how do we get there and more importantly, keep getting there!

If you want a leaner, chiseled body so damn bad then what is stopping you?

That’s a great question with a simple answer.

The reason you have not been able to get there yet is a matter of FOCUS.

We all FOCUS on the celebration, the BIG LEAP.

Yet we forget what created the momentum to take that BIG LEAP.

What created the momentum was KAIZEN!

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “Continuous Improvement”.  It is the foundation of Mastery.

Most people dread the small steps that push them toward the realization of their desires. They whine, complain and cry about working out, eating clean and being sore. They see the small steps as a nuisance that they HAVE to do or they will get fat. Then there are the physically elite and the soon to be physically elite who choose to attack the small steps with vim and vigor…who embrace the challenge and always strive to improve. They possess the KAIZEN mindset and reap the rewards of victory.

The daily GRIND

It is doing the little things each day.

  • Training
  • Getting enough sleep
  • Going to the grocery store
  • Preparing your food
  • Planning your meals
  • Eating optimally one meal at a time
  • Drinking your water each day
  • Consuming high octane foods
  • Focusing on and celebrating the smallest, positive improvements.

This is KAIZEN!

Improving every day, getting one more rep, eating a little cleaner than the day before, being in the PRESENT moment.

This is KAIZEN!

If you begin to exercise this mindset the rewards will be astonishing. I leave you with these powerful words from author, Og Mandino, to stoke the fire within:

“I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy.  I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.”

P.S. – If you are the type of person who doesn’t dabble….who wants the most out of themselves and life…who isn’t willing to settle then go here before it sells out.  BREAKTHROUGH 2011

"To tend, unfailingly, unflinchingly, towards a goal, is the secret of success." - Anna Pavlova
