Tuesday Attitude: Saddle-Shoes and a Skirt!
“Everywhere in our society there is an extreme lack of self-accountability. I see it everyday in all aspects of my life. I was taught by a very wise person this simple lesson…”Everyday courage.””2011 is the year of Achievement at CF. Take a look at yourself (physically and/or mentally) today. Put any goal on the table: getting better at the CF exercises, working out harder, improving speed, getting to the gym more often, weight loss, whatever. What is going to change by Dec. 31? How is it going to change?
“That is the closest I have come to puking in quite some time…”
“that requires something much more than mental masturbation…it means you actually got to put the food down, turn off the tv, dust yourself off, and go out into the world and make something happen…”
Cheerleading is fine, if it’s backed by results. Pick your goal…and spend less time “rah rah-ing” and more time doing!
“Tasted blood….hah!!! I was p!ss!n blood after that second round…”
“do it, create it, live it and don’t hold on too tightly to the past….cuz it just may strangle you…”
“Keep the ego in-check and be honest with yourself!!”
“Crazy is as crazy does…”
“I don’t give two shits what your perceived excuse is for dilly-dallying around…everyone who walks thru that door is carrying a burden of some sort…so mostly no-one gives a sh!t…get your mind right, focus on what is in front of you and do whatever it is you are doing in the moment to the best of your ability and stop whining…”
Step 1: Look in the mirror. Are you satisfied with your goal?
Step 2: Be honest about your approaches and strategies. If they haven’t worked up to this point…will it really be different tomorrow if it hasn’t changed in 1, 3, 5, years, honestly? Will Dec 31 2011 be different…or just like all the other Dec 31s of all the other years? Honestly consider dramatic changes to strategy.
Step 3: Make a list. The list will be all the excuses why you haven’t met your goal. Ask yourself why you aren’t that right now, today, Feb 8. All the excuses, get them out, write them down. Put them in front of your face. See them?
Step 4: Say each one aloud and then cross them off.
Step 5: Done. You are free to pursue your goals in 2011 with Achievement-oriented focus and determination, unencumbered by excuses and self-deceit. Go get ’em, CFers, no excuses, no limitations, no boundaries!
