Day 11 – Even Lazy Days Require Effort

Not going to lie, I am just struggling to find the motivation to write an article tonight. That doesn’t mean I can just take the day off. That’s how bad habits continue. For the past four years I’ve always found excuses to avoid the gym or to talk myself into spending more than I have budgeted. Now I’m not trying to sound like I’m constantly pinching pennies these days, instead I’m taking a page out of Paula Pant’s “Afford Anything” book and limiting what I choose to splurge money on. If you check out her blog you will see the phrase “You can afford anything, just not everything” posted all over her site.

With that being said, the lack of motivation is real tonight. I’m going to finish this article with a bunch of motivational posts from my Instagram feed (By the way, be sure to follow me here if you don’t already). Oh and yes, I know I’m taking the easy way out today but its something and that’s the most important thing. If you beg to differ, take a look at my post from yesterday. If you still don’t agree after that, then feel free to comment below.

Here's something I learned from reality transurfing by Vadim Zeland and only a VERY SMALL part of it so I highly recommend you guys the book as well as the 8 hour audio version on YouTube which I'm listening to wherever I go. Before you try to crush it in the outside world, learn to live in peace with yourself and FIND yourself! The inner game is completely underrated but has the biggest impact on your real life success. You see all the people inside the show biz crushing it. Actors, music stars etc. Some of them aren't even 100% talented. I'd never say that Lil Pump is the next Beethoven or Mozart but this dude made it through his inner game I can tell. 100% self confidence, energy and the will to just crush it made him millions. Now imagine the same person with self doubt a la "eeeeeh, I don't know if people will like my music?…. what if they don't like my look or say its pure cringe? What if I'll make a fool out of myself?…" These thought would have cost him millions of dollars, a career and a lifestyle. This is how much of a role your mind plays inside this game of life. Your inner thoughts create your outside world. It's the law of the universe. If you're depressed, don't read quotes a la "better times are around the corner, just be patient". Guess what? The world doesn't give 2 f*cks about your well being. it is completely neutral. It knows no gender, age, preference, it just reacts to what you give it, so if you're depressed af cutting yourself the only thing the world will hand towards you is an easier access to more razor blades. What you uave to do is take responsibility for your life and some action because only YOU can change YOU. Start off small, reprogram yourself, feed yourself small positive thoughts day in day out. Plant the seed and water the ground so that the flower can bloom one day……

This last one has really given me some motivation for tomorrow. I’m going to make up for my lack of gym today by going before work.
