Let me tell you a story. I use to be a lazy mot###cker who never worked out or did any form of exercise more than a couple of times per year.
To make a long story short: All the way until I reached the age of 28 I was like that, I was not only lazy but I was living a “bad life” I was drinking alcohol and consuming other drugs to… A LOT. I never had a job for a very long period of time (at least no legal job) All the friends I had was the same way so it became my “lifestyle”. YOLO!! Right? Yeah right.
I reached the bottom and I was NOT happy, (those things will never make you happy) Some things changed in my mind and I decided that enough is enough. I understood that if I continued that way I would never achieve anything, I would probably get sick in some way, go to prison or even die much too early.
I have a family so I could not make them sad anymore, I guess I realized that I had been hurting them by living the way I did. I NEEDED A CHANGE!!
I stopped hanging out with my “friends” and I stopped drinking alcohol and all the other drugs too.
Anyway… I started working out!
It was NOT fun in the beginning, and it was NOT easy. But I had made a promise to myself that NO MATTER WHAT I would do my workout that I had promised to myself I would make… even if I did not feel like doing it that day. Nothing was going to stop me.
Trust me I DID NOT feel like doing it many days for the first 6-12 months. BUT I DID IT ANYWAY!
I FORCED myself every time to do it… Guess what? It felt great after every time I did a workout even if I did not “feel” like doing it!
It is, of course, easier now and I (mostly) do not even think about how hard it is I just do it. But of course sometimes I do not feel like working out (these days) but I still do it anyway.
I do it because I know how important it is to do it even if you feel like it or not.
Now I have been working out for soon 4 years (I am 32 years old now) and I have never made the amounts of money that I do now in my whole life (at least not for a consistent period of time). I got a daytime 9-5 job after about one year, I was able to start saving money. I got better contact with my family and with MYSELF. I was HEALTHY.
After a period of forcing yourself to work out whether you feel like it or not you build up not only your health, muscle, and stamina. You build up your CHARACTER as well, maybe even more than those other things.
So how is this going to help you make more money? It will help you with accomplishing ANYTHING you want to do! Not only make more money.
Think about it, if you do your physical workout everytime you have it in your “schedule” even if you do not feel like doing it you will get a strong mentality and a strong character.
EVERYTHING else that you do, that you not “feel like doing” will get (A LOT) easier doing, and you WILL do it!
Not only physical things but absolutely everything. Because when you start keeping the promises you make to yourself you will also start keeping the promises you give to others. People will trust you more!
Now I have started to make an income online and that was something I did not know anything about when I started out. Sure I got the best training available to learn all about it but… I still had to put in the hours learning how to do it.
When did I do it (except for weekends) if I had a fulltime 9-5 job? Short answer: I did it right after my workout routine that I do immediately after I come home (tired) from work… I did it when I promised myself to do it! NO MATTER WHAT!
I find the discipline to sit and “work” and “learn” after my work and my workout. I find this discipline because I have built up my discipline and character by working out.
I am not saying that I am making A LOT of money online…yet.
I am not “super successful” at making a so-called “passive income” online… yet.
But I am surely making progress every day, and I have made a promise to myself that I will reach my “money goal” and I know that I will :o)
How do I know this? Because I have learned that by working out :o)
Hope you understand what I mean with this post and that it makes sense (I know my English is not the best) and please leave a comment below!
Hope this helps!
