Cajones, Self-love, Discipline, and the Recipe for Physical Success
Last week the topic of conversation was on the boring but hyper-effective concept of self-discipline.
I talked about how self-discipline is self-love.
I shared how I began training Jiu-Jitsu on Sunday's -- to pull me out of my comfort zone/vegetative state and doing something active each day...
... even on Sunday.
Well, I decided to keep the theme going for one more day and added a couple more things I'm doing this month to make me even more uncomfortable:
I began prepping and eating my meals during the day.
Prior, I had been living a fasting-focused lifestyle the last 7+ years. It's been great and it was super-easy to replicate.
But it became comfortable.
And the last thing a man should do in life is -- become "comfortable" -- with no goal to chase.
David Goggins calls it, becoming, "civilized".
I started to run 2-3 miles, 3 plus days a week.
I know, I know, don't even say it -- Hector, you're running?! What in the world are you running from?!
Look -- I'm not running to get in shape, I have my kettlebells and Jiu-Jitsu for that. I'm running because I hate it and it's out of my comfort zone.
Plus as humans, we were born to run, I think we all know this by now.
And not only am I running, but I'm running in the dead heat of summer in South Texas between the hours of 13-15:00 (IT SUCKS).
... knowing I tackled something I hate doing... is the most rewarding feeling in the world. Because one thing is certain -- on the other side of suffering, pain, and discomfort is growth and success.
So let me ask you, friend...
What do you hate doing?
What are you avoiding -- to stay in your comfort zone?
What's something you can start doing today...
... which could sling shot you toward your goals and personal growth faster than a your kids jump out of bed at 6am on Christmas morning?
Drop a comment below, I'm interested in hearing about it!
P.S. I'm in the middle of another great book on writing and the author is talking about "the recipe for success".
It got me thinking...
... what is the recipe for success to getting in great shape, taking control of your life, and no longer being ashamed of what you see in the mirror?
I knew it had to be something easy-to-follow, obviously.
And something repeatable -- day in and day out.
