Floppy potatoes & motivation




Let's talk motivation.

You can be lazy, do the same shit you've always done, say you struggle with 'motivation' or you can DECIDE to flip the switch.

Most people want something outside of themself to motivate them.

I listen to Gary V or David Goggins when I need my fire lit and when I'm feeling like a floppy potato.

But it's not enough. To keep it lit I need to care for it, I need to continue to fuel it, I need to focus on it.

It's up to me to keep the fire going. No one else.

This is where discipline is key. If I'm starting something new, like when I decided that one of my non-negotiable was to produce and share content every single day.

I had to use discipline. I decided this is who I am. It's life or death. It's that serious, otherwise, sometimes I'd be like 'ohh I'll do it later' and then later turns into tomorrow.

That's the difference between 'the haves' and 'the have nots'.

'The haves' are the types of people who decide to do the thing no matter what. They decide that they stick to their own internal compass and ALWAYS do the thing. For me, that's meant writing content on the plane and posting in on the stopover if I need to. It's meant getting up at ungodly hours to do the 'things' before travelling that day.

I'm the same with my fitness. I literally do yoga or push-ups in airport terminals, I bring a change of clothes for long flights. I've even practised a whole hour class on the plane in the space in front of the seats (I had no one next to me, but mind you even if I did it doesn't stop me from getting up and practising a full-on standing sequence near the lavatory).

Nothing stops me because that's who I decide I am.

And I cannot stop myself from being who I know I am.

I'm disciplined AF when incorporating something new into my life. And then it becomes like breathing, I don't even think about it.

Now content, sales, daily exercise, no processed food, meditation, weekly 24 hour dry fasting, journaling, prayer, is not even a non-negotiable.

It's just a necessity.

And there is always time for it. In fact, I will not ever miss them for anything. Ask my Mum or Chris, I almost hiss at them if they talk to me in the mornings while I'm doing the 'things', nothing else exists, disturb me and you'll die ;p

Just like we don't think about brushing our teeth or taking a shower, we just do it.

Time is elastic, I get all this done and have so much time left to create, play, socialise, do whatever I want. Because I decide that I have more than enough time, just like I decide I have more than enough money.

How? It's simple. Discipline with the simple stuff, the stuff that seems so easy and maybe even boring, this is the stuff that moves the needle.

Once I've fully embedded the 'thing' into my life & it's a habit then I might allow myself to relax a little around it. For example with movement, I commit to exercising 2 times per day. I'd do interval trainings or the gym every second day.

Once it was incorporated I allowed myself to go with how I feel, always moving but, not necessarily a full-on work out.

Then sometimes I can feel like I'm getting a little soft with the 'thing'. I felt myself pulling back from the harder workouts, I'd try and avoid it or not be fully present with it. So the discipline comes back in, I now schedule my interval workouts again.

And it moves like this I pull it in, I loosen it and might need to pull it in again.

Motivation is not even a thing when I'm in this mode because doing the 'things' is so natural, of course, this is what I do, this is who I am.

Decide who you are. Decide that you are the kind of person that sticks to their focus, that lives fully, that respects themselves & their body, that shares the message, that is available for nothing else but to make the sales. Decide to be the kind of person that takes action.

Or don't, you can also be a floppy potato if that's who you are. Be you.

IMPORTANT- I've decided to close the Wolf Pack mentorship sale early because I realised it's way to low cost for what it is. The 70% off is only available for another 48 hours. Click here to sign up. Let's talk motivation.
