Eat your veggies!
Top-Fitness Model training continues.
Honestly, I could do better in these 5 days I’ve been on my personal mission, better with my training and nutrition. I want to get to my goal as soon as possibly staying sane and healthy.
As I was taking a long walk after my morning full body blast in the gym (instead of doing boring cardio inside), I started listening to a very interesting podcast.
I thought that the podcast would be about some techniques to upgrade our brain performance (Our brain effectiveness and efficiency affects everything in our life), but it turned out to be even better.
“Beliefs are the lens by which we see the world and behave.”
It was about the power of our, very often limiting, beliefs. It was about the science behind our habits. Good habits increase our self-confidence and empower our self-beliefs. Self-sabotaging, not following through with the promises we give to ourselves, makes us believe in ourselves less, and less, and less… Until we give up altogether and settle for mediocrity and meaningless existence.
And that is a scary place to live in.
I’ve been there. Even that short period of time I spent there made me freak out and work harder than I had ever worked before on my goals — I didn’t want to exist in that place. I don’t know how people can survive there for long — not reaching for something they want, not dreaming, not going after their dreams, not following their inner light, their bliss, their compass.
I know I’m going to come to that edge of the cliff and look down one day soon. The edge of what I experienced in my life so far. The edge I never leaped from to land on the other side an experience different life I always wanted to live. I know I’ll be standing there very soon choosing between comfortable known and unknown, where all my dreams live.
My journey might not be epic. It might not matter to anyone but me. It doesn’t have to. It matters to me — what I choose to do this time.
Leap or go back, scared by the sight of the void of unknown between two edges — the life I’m used to and the one I’ve always imagined myself living.
I’ll follow the advice John Assaraf gave on the podcast. I’ll visualize myself leaping and landing on the other side overcoming any obstacle on my way, the biggest one of which is myself. I’ll visualize it and when the moment comes, I’ll leap without hesitation.
And if there is something all my failures in almost 30 years of my life taught me — I survived this far making all these mistakes, mistreating people and myself, I survived, I traveled the world, I stayed healthy, I managed to enjoy life most of the days, I survived this far, so now, with my entire mind and all my energy dedicated to one purpose, with all the lessons I learned, I just might end up flying over that edge landing much further than I ever thought possible.
“There’s a famous line, delivered by Orson Welles, in the 1940s film noir The Third Man: ‘In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace — and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.” The Vital Question by Nick Lane
