The Choice Is Yours: on being extraordinary

by Megan K on July 5, 2013

What does it take to be great? 

In my opinion it takes constant, diligent work

Lots of reps

Practice

Some “failures”

Some time spent off track

But mostly it takes doing a lot of good work to get to great. 

And the cool thing about it is that once you get there you can always go further, isn’t that awesome?  :-)

If you want to look “great” and feel “great”, and you do not currently look or feel great, you had better believe that you will need to do something different in order to get there. 

The way I see it, every single day almost hourly (except while we are sleeping), we have choices to make. Will we stay the same, will we get better or will we be extraordinary? 

If you want to look and feel extraordinary you must start by letting go of excuses and the stories you tell yourself that hold you back.

You may not feel like you have time to workout but how you manage your time is ultimately your choice.  None of us are in prison, we can choose to get up earlier and workout in the morning, or to not go to happy hour and instead come to workout, or to get up on the weekend and go for a walk.

What you put into your body is also your choice. No one will force you to have dessert and if a person is your friend she will also respect your choice to have less or no alcohol.

What about your sleep? Why is this something that people are willing to compromise?  (Don’t get me wrong I’m guilty of it too from time to time- but I’ve learned that compromising on sleep doesn’t do anyone any favors especially me.) 

What about your stress levels and your overall emotional health? When was the last time you had a good laugh, cry, shout or just let out a large scream?  If your emotional health is in good shape you are way more likely to look extraordinary.

Guess what- looking and feeling good are inseparable which is good news because when you take better care of yourself all of these things will come together for you.

In good health,

Megan K

 

Immediate Action Steps (Do them right now):

Ask yourself:

1)What specifically am I working on?

2) What am I willing to do to get there? Specifically, of what will I do more and of what will I do less?

To quote a dear friend and teacher, Craig Keaton, “Everything we want to accomplish has a cost. We just need to ask ourselves if we are willing to pay that price to get there”.
