“6 pack abs look great and people who have them are envied.
But do you really want to follow a very rigorous diet for months, denying yourself all those guilty pleasures.
Are you willing to do more than just one set of crunches once a week and really sweat it out to get them?
Comfort and self-indulgence are often too high a price to pay to achieve ‘exceptional’ status.”
The “voice of reason” makes a good point with his last comment “too high a price to pay…”
But what does all this “comfort” and “self-indulgence” bring us?
For many years, the west led by America has been comfortable and massively self-indulgent.
Just a few tidbits worth thinking about:
Does sleeping in late really help one feel better?
Eating more than we need just because it tastes good…
Spending more money than one can afford to buy crap they don’t need …
Getting out of shape .. so one is constantly, tired and lethargic all day long…
Doing ones job so half hearted and half assed … it ends up taking you a longer time to complete it, and when its completed its total crap.
Or “half ass-ing” and not taking care of your clients … so you end up having to look for new clients.
The other night I got invited to have dinner at a local “famous” restaurant … I didn’t eat much; the food was ok, but the service was terrible.
I will never go again – and if someone were to ask me, I would tell them to go somewhere else because I had such a negative experience.
Now, more than ever, everything must be perfect.
People will no longer afford 2nd chances…
We all must be perfect, or at the very least “very good” at whatever it is we are doing.
Not just good every so often, but consistently “very good” or you will wake up one day and discover you have missed the boat.
Instead of sitting on facebook sharing your troubles with a bunch of people you dont know, go to bed early – clean up your act, get in shape and make tomorrow the first day in the rest of your life.
