Everyone wants that amazing success story. Everywhere around us we see ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Often times you look at people with jealousy who have changed their lives for the better because they are now slimmer, fitter, healthier, more muscular, and look good naked right? What's keeping you from having the same results? Well it's most definitely the Big Mac in your right hand and the remote in the other, but the primary reason is your own dedication to something that is bigger than you. Leading a fit and healthy lifestyle often pressures other people to do the same thing. Birds of a feather flock together, right? Living with a zeal to make yourself more fit will bring to light other people's abilities and dreams to do the same thing.
So how do you do it?
1. Goal orientation: You need to know where you want to go and outline smaller tangible goals on the way to help you arrive at your overall goal.
2. Self-discipline: Laziness will only propagate more laziness. So get off your ass and do something about changing your situation. In the end, it's self-discipline to do the work required that separates the dreamers from achievers. So put on a good attitude and make some moves in your life that will further motivate you towards your goal.
3. Basic satisfaction: Life is quite like an elevator with its constant ups and downs. What you need to strive for is to hit a rhythm of ups. Consistent forward progress is the only way you can get anywhere. Dissatisfaction creates the restlessness that destroys the focus needed to achieve your dreams as well as acting like a type of constant stress that erodes your will to succeed. You need to be satisfied with where your life is going in general before you can really focus on changing anything about yourself.
