MMM Preparation with pushups

I’m preparing for our weekly motivation meeting. 

I was debating if I should grab another coffee or catnap before starting the meeting. 

But. No! 

I needed to get my heart pumping and adrenaline rushing. 

I got down on all fours and did my daily 50 push-ups. (As I once mentioned, I heard this from Vishen Lakiani that he does the amount of push-ups to match his age. I have been doing it twice daily since then.) 

Watching me do this, one loan officer exclaimed, “Wow! I can’t even do five push-ups!”

I told him, “Yeah, when I started I couldn’t either do 5. I couldn’t even do one!”

Start with half. Then a whole. Then push yourself further and do one push-up daily.

Suddenly, you can do 2 push-ups daily. Then 3 and 10 and 15.

Continue building strength. 

Then you do 25 per day and looking back, you can’t believe it yourself!

If you did it sometimes, you can do it all the time!

When you do something consistently you create a place for the momentum to hold onto, and fill your cup with blessings.

Start with nothing. Keep on adding small consistent movements.

Then suddenly you find you can move mountains. 

L’chaim!

(Looking back at this video now, I see that I need to improve my push-ups and do it a little fuller. And did you notice that I’m starting to go bald?!)

Book 6. Day 7: Outstanding!

“What does your organization do?”

If you couldn’t answer this basic question, what are the odds you would’ve known
why the organization existed?

The Final Picture

Are you happy staying the way you are now, for the rest of your life?!

Just like you wouldn’t let others jerk you around and play on your emotions, so too you should not let your emotions play on you.

Don’t let your emotions have a wild ride over you, and make you feel bad about yourself. 

Funny how we allow ourselves to get hurt by our ‘own’ emotions and our own thinking. 

We hear a lot of these terms thrown around:

💭

“Today’s generation is…”

💭

“Yeah, this is life and we can’t help it…”

💭

“Everyone says so, so it must be…”

💭

“That’s the nature of the world we live in…”

Who is the “everyone”? Who is to decide how you should lead your life?

This is how it looks when people say things from their own point of view and current level of maturity.

Which begs the question: are they mature enough to say an opinion about you?

As we mature, we need to become emotionally aware that we can just throw the blame on “ this is the nature” or “this is how it is these days”.

As you grow in personal development you will see the change in your emotional maturity.

Then your life will be happier and more productive. 

That I wish for you, my friend, in every area of your life!

Learning!

Are you the type that listens to podcasts or are you rather the reading-a-book type?

The truth is, it’s not really about the inspiring podcast, the new technique or the amazing seminar training. 

It’s all about making changes. 

Change happens through awareness. 

We listen.
We learn.
We review.

By internalizing what we learn, we learn to change. 

If we haven’t changed that means we haven’t learned anything. 

Ask yourself. What did the knowledge you learned do to change you? 

Learning and acquiring knowledge shouldn’t just be for entertainment purposes. It should help you become a better person. 

It’s not enough to listen to an inspiring talk about changing bad habits, you also have to apply it in real life! 

Learning is not enough. 

As Mahatma Gandhi so aptly said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

What interesting knowledge have you acquired recently?

We buy too many books

A few weeks ago, my flight home from Puerto Rico was canceled. 

It made me think. 

Can we change the weather (snow in NY was causing the delay)? 
No.

Can we change our attitude (enjoy another day in a beautiful resort)?
Yes!

We do not let the weather — or anything — affect us negatively! 

We need to make the best out of it!

People around you need strength and serenity. 

They are depending on you to provide a sense of calm, security, assurance and confidence.

That is what people need at this time.

In your own little way, you can be there for your loved ones. 

Natural forces are just stronger than us. 

It evokes a chink in the armor and weakness in a person when we know that we are not in control. 

The only way to fight? 

BE CALM!

We cannot fight the natural forces that occur.

But we CAN fight our emotions and how we respond to it.

“Don’t try to calm the storm. Calm yourself. The storm will pass!”

Keep calm and carry on!

Use the brain!

Did you know that if you don’t use your brain it will rust?!

By nature, things rust. Break. Fall and fail. 

If a machine is not oiled, it will stop working at one point.
If the brain/body/mind is not oiled, it will slow down.

You constantly need to keep moving your body and sharpening your brain.

Learn a new language.

Do tough exercises that make your heart race.

Keep on learning, and reviewing to retain the wisdom. 

If you don’t use it, you lose it!

If you don’t use your mind, the laziness creeps in and we slow down. 

As long as we live, we always need to keep moving and trying to push harder.

Keep going, my friend!

What brain exercise do you enjoy that sharpens the brain?
