2017. New year, new you!
No change in season, date or year has produced greatness. The one factor that produces this creation is that of a relentless will.
Waiting for a date. For a month. For the perfect start is well… waiting. Being stagnant.
Waiting is Stagnancy. Stagnancy comes from fear. Fear is weakness.
You’re standing outside the gym. It’s the third week of the new year. Just two more weeks until everyone gives up on their new gym membership.
You know it, the mass marketing scam of “resolution” that attracts the masses to “Change their body in 8 weeks” to “Change their life”.
You tell yourself – “This is the year. This time I’ll really do it”
You now think that I am bashing New Years Resolutions. Well yes… and no.
Ultimately New Years Resolutions are a joke. Most people fail theirs. They give up. They are dreams.
If you have found yourself in this position before, reflect. Think. Why did I not grow? Retrace your steps.
There has been a metric shitload of people complaining that “2016 was the worst” due to external erroneous factors. The truth is if 2016 was shit that was your fault. No president, no employer, no lifestyle ever has the ultimate say in your life. Take ownership. The individual is the sole creator of success or failure. You are in control of your outcomes.
So what do we do now?
- Take a stand. Set your goals (they should be already set)
- Accept that no one cares about them or you
- Take Ownership of the outcome
- Relentless pursuit
- Rinse Repeat. No need to wait for another year
Personally I crushed 2016. You all remember my first post about crushing 2015. Performing under pressure, ‘plus est en vous’ and all that jazz.
Over 2016 I got my dream job at a world renown company straight out of uni. I moved cities. Bulked my body weight past my previous heaviest and regained all my lost strength after my ex. Additionally I doubled my income. That’s enough tooting of my own horn though.
Back to my message.
For the plebs goals are dreams. For the strong goals are constant. A never ending cliff to climb. They are meant to be set, achieved, and reset. Rinse. Repeat.
Join the ranks of the strong. Surround yourself with like minded killers. Feed off each other to push yourselves forward.
What is 2017 going to be for me? Relentless pursuit.
But more importantly what is 2017 going to be for you?
