“Why do people quit? Because they are not yet personally identified with who they have to be to get this thing.” -Elliott Hulse
This quote is going to define everything we are going to talk about this month: HABITS.
Habits are the foundation you create to get all of the things you want out of life.
Along with habits, it is important to get your mind around the idea of growth and letting go of the story you tell yourself.
If you believe in your heart and soul that you were born to live a legendary life, you have to build your mind to handle such a mission. You have to see yourself of worthy of a legendary life.
That will take time.
Just practice wrapping your mind around the idea that you are a legendary person and building a legendary life around you is just a matter of expanding your mind. You have to let go of whatever self-limiting beliefs you have about yourself and your life.
As you practice that, you also must ask yourself the most important question of all:
Who do you have to become to get the life you want?
If part of your vision is to build an athletic body, what kind of new traits would you have to develop? Being mindful about your food. Someone who can commit to exercise multiple days of the week. Someone who is willing to stick it out no matter how long it takes.
How do you do that?
Well, each one of new traits you have to develop can be centered around habits.
Being mindful about your food = the habit of preparing your meals early.
Committing to multiple days during the week = create a habit of going to the gym.
Sticking it out = practicing your perseverance and creating a habit of reminding yourself why you want your goal.
This whole month I will be focusing on the topic of habits to make sure you can properly build the foundation for the rest of your life.
So, to get ready, get out a sheet of paper.
Write at the top why you want a legendary life.
Second, write down in detail the person you want to become and grow into.
Third, think of the traits that you would have to develop to reach this new goal.
Fourth, try to take each of those traits and turn them into a habit you need to create.
That’s your mission for today.
