How to Finally Finish that Course You've been Putting Off

Sad truth is, I took this home inspection course on 2012 and never finished it. Now I am feed up with my current professional life, I want different opportunities, and build my own entrepreneurial career. I have confessed to my therapist that the feeling of responsibility, having to depend only on myself, and having to get out there to prospect, learn though skills like leadership, sales, accounting, social skills, and much more was overwhelming. Basically up to this point I have been refusing to grow up (and it's really hard to admit).

Results After Meditating on "Needing Permission"

About 3 days ago I posted an essay called "How to Meditate Your Problems Away"(check it out!).

After 3 days, the results have been incredible! Little by little, step by step, I noticed how doing such as small thing has caused such an impact, and I encourage you to go ahead and try it for yourself. 

At first, my mind after few minutes started wandering with meaningless thoughts, that is just part of the process, be always conscious of it, and get back on track until you get used to it… Believe me it's worthy. 

 

When You Can't Keep Up With Your Fitness Rountine

After 5 months of pure commitment with my fitness and finally seeing some results, new year comes around, parties, foods, and drinking becomes a priority, totally derailing from my goals, and once again starting from 0, a bit overweight and no self-stem... what do you do? 

Yea.. this is me, after four months of going on and off the gym, and trying different ways to stick to my fitness life. 

I know for fact this time around will be different, why? because I am tired of starting from 0, not getting the body and the results I want, and most importantly being a quitter, so this is what you do:

  • Find a baseline: not being a athlete and wanting to go to the gym 5 days a week for 2 hours seems foolish, instead find a baseline you feel comfortable with, e.g:

            My baseline of comfort is

            exercising 3 times a week, for 30 minutes, or

           15 minutes each day fully focused on my exercise, doing exercises that I only like, such as push-ups and crunches. 

  • Have clear goals, so you could design your road map, is it strength, good looks, become good at a certain sport? Mine was to get lean, agile, and develop strength.
  • Start simple, instead of paying fancy health clubs, or the best supplements, use what you already have, some knowledge, and an empty space, I use my room, warm up for a minute, then focus ONLY on the push-ups I am doing at that moment. 
  • Track your progress, as I write this, today is my second day, yesterday i did 6 minutes of workout, today did 8 with better performance, and more concentration, so i expect tomorrow to do a lot better until I can feel comfortable doing full 15 minutes of training. Write everything down, and highlight the positive aspects of it. 
  • Your commitment is completely up to you, my challenge is to make sure I do this every day for 30 days, before getting out of my comfort zone again and trying something new, it seems like it's not much, but it's a lot more than all the "nothing" I was doing for quite a while. 

I think that the most important thing when it comes to fitness, or anything, is not the amount of effort you put at first, but developing the actually habit, doing the best you can, and that's basically my goal, for the first 30 days, being able to keep up with the habit, regardless of everything that goes around my busy life.
