Life under the blanket.
“I can’t do it. I’m tired. Too many things to do. Too many meetings. Too many people. You need a day off. It’s not normal. You need to take it easy. You’ll burn out. I don’t want to do that. Go eat a bag of cashews at least! … It’s all stupid”
That was going through my mind yesterday night, while I was filling in my daily journal, working on my to-make-happen list for tomorrow, gratitude, wins of the day, the daily question.
It’s not that I lack confidence in myself. Not at all. In fact most people meeting me would say I need more humility.
It’s just I’ve never done what I’m attempting to do.
I’ve never gone after my dreams seriously.
I’ve never gone after my goals consistently.
I’ve never applied massive-actions approach to anything in life.
I’ve just been doing a bit here and there (Even that was enough though to travel for years having nothing secured — job, finances, accommodation, plan etc.).
I’ve never been laser-focused and serious about my goals. I’ve never really believed in myself with actions. In my bold dreams and goals.
It’s easier to find excuse, why we can’t have our goals and dreams, than to work through all the BS we have making it through till the very end.
It is easier. And YOU know it.
YOU know, that the only reason, why you don’t already have what you’ve been thinking about for years, is YOU.
End of story.
Because it’s easier and more secure.
You can stay under your blanket eating cookies more often facing no one and nothing you are not comfortable with, doing your best avoiding it.
You know this path.
You know where it leads.
Do YOU want to go there? AGAIN?!
Face the uncomfortable.
Answer the call.
Leave the blanket behind.
Take an icy cold f*cking shower.
Aren’t you tired of your own bullsh*t?
I used to be the kind of person nobody knew in a gym. I was a girl who worked out daily there.
I know the name of every person who I see often in the gym now.
I know every person who works there by name.
I know what people care about. What people are up to.
I volunteer advice, asked or not.
Some people love me. Some people hate me and believe I am know-it-all cocky blondie who thinks the world of herself.
It’s not the point.
The point is to help someone, who might desperately need what I have to give, afraid to ask, afraid to look stupid, afraid of…
That someone is the ONLY person I care about.
You don’t get healthy and stay healthy.
HEALTH is a DAILY PRACTICE. One bite at a time.
Daily Bite of Health
LEAVE THE BLANKET BEHIND.
FACE THE UNCOMFORTABLE.
And here is an extra Bite of Health.
I don’t know about you but Sales is one of THE most uncomfortable thing for me to do. No wonder my finances are so far from ideal. No wonder my impact is barely visible.
Everyone is selling something — ideas, worldviews, impact, change, solution to problems, beauty, excitement… Everyone is changing the world. You see the world as it is now because someone got better at selling.

Calvin Wayman is an author, speaker, sales expert and social media entrepreneur. In his early twenties, being awkward and shy, he held a company record for the WORST performance a sales agent ever had. After almost being fired, he found a mentor and went on from having the worst performance to the best. He attributes his tenacity of “never giving up” to lessons he learned going out and knocking on random households, selling door-to-door.
In 2016 alone, Calvin Wayman started a social media management business, wrote his first book, and was featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, Social Media Examiner, The Huffington Post. He was also named one of “The Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under The Age of 30” by Influencive.com.
