This week we're building on our last 2 videos, where we've been discussing the book "A Life of Excellence" by Richard E. Simmons.
Living a life of excellence simply means being the best you can be by doing the best you can do. Not compared to others, but compared to your potential and the life you've been living up until now.
Look, I don't know how you found this blog, and I certainly don't know what's going on in your life right now. But there's a reason you're reading this instead of a video filled with cats or dogs or people getting pranked or busting their ass. And I applaud you for trying to better yourself instead of just wasting time.
If you make a habit of reading self-improvement blogs like this, or reading self-help books, that's wonderful. But what are you doing with the information? When you finish reading this, are you going to change anything or go find another one to read? I want to encourage you to take the information and start moving in a different direction.
Today's action idea is to commit to living a Full Life. Make the decision today that the path you're on is not getting you the results you want, so you're going to head down a different path. You are going to commit to excellence and make the necessary changes to start living the life you deserve. You are going to start doing the things you know you are capable of doing.
If you follow this blog, you've heard me say before that you don't have to have it all figured out before you get started. You just have to decide that enough is enough and you're going to make some changes. And those changes can be small habits or routines that over time make a significant impact on your life.
Try not to be overwhelmed at the prospect of living a Full Life. In most cases, you will not need a complete overhaul of your life to see things begin to move in a positive direction. Start small, and be consistent. You cannot make up for years of neglect overnight. But you can be proactive and stop letting life get the best of you. Remember, you are the captain of your ship and you can steer it wherever you want it to go.
Look, you don't have to listen to me. Listen to yourself. Are you satisfied with the direction of your life? Are you living up to your potential? Are you making an IMPACT and living a Full Life? If not, today is the day you commit to yourself to do better. To live a life of excellence and stop floating through life. You can do it, but you MUST make that commitment.
Once you make that decision, you're going to feel different. Like you're in control for the first time in a long time. That the future is up to you. That your life is in front of you. It doesn't matter how much time you've wasted, starting today everything is going to be different. You're going to start looking through the windshield instead of focusing on the rear-view mirror.
You will approach life with a can-do attitude. You will stop complaining and start doing something about your situation. You will be proactive instead of reactive. You will wake up with a determination that you are going to make the most of each day and you will go to bed with a satisfaction that you did your best. YOU are in charge now, and everyone else can get on board or get out of your way.
Now if this sounds a little too good to be true, feel free to do the opposite and see how that works out for you. Wake up every day dreading to go to work, know in your heart that today is gonna suck, don't expect anything positive to happen, and complain to anyone who will listen. Do that for a few weeks, months or years and see how much better your life gets. I will be shocked if anything improves for you if you adopt this strategy.
If you choose that path, and I sincerely hope you don't, feel free to come back here when you're ready. I'll keep putting out posts designed to help you create a transformation, and I'll be here when you're ready to start making a positive impact and living a full life.
