BEST NIGHT OF THE WEEK

Seriously, how many people wake up saying: “Woohoo! I get to change my sheets today!”?

(Answer: Very few. ;-)) 

But we do it anyway because of the payoff.

The irony is that almost every small pleasure in life — and every success! — is built on a foundation of everyday habits. And a lot of those habits are (yes I’ll say it) boring. 

Those habits affect

  • Your health
  • Your fitness level
  • Your skills
  • Even your relationships & retirement account!

There’s nothing sexy about the process — it’s just a matter of continually making good choices, and showing up and doing the work. 

  • Choosing to eat healthy foods (even when you don’t want to)
  • Choosing to exercise regularly (especially when you don’t want to)
  • Choosing to keep trying a new skill until we master it (even when you don’t feel like it)

The payoffs are definitely WORTH IT.

But there’s something else you need to know.

There’s another habit a lot of people develop in life: the need for instant gratification (wanting what we want, when we want it — right now).

Overcoming that habit means learning a new skill: delayed gratification. 

You can learn it like you learn every other skill in life (driving, playing an instrument, cooking, writing):

You practice it… one day at a time.

So, {{first_name}}…

What’s ONE habit can you practice — starting today — that will help you move the needle toward a healthier & fitter body?

Comment below and let me know. 

Make it an amazing day,
