The 1%

What do you think of when you see that number? Funny how a simple number can trigger all kinds of thoughts and emotions, right?? Like you might see that 1% and think about the uber-wealthy in America. Or not. Maybe it might represent something completely different like what I always imagine when I think about 1%.

So people always ask me how to get fit. I say to them, the same way you get happy…A little bit at a time. You see broham, you can’t suffer your way to success. Neither can you cheat your way into fitness. It’s all about progress and not just flurries of activity…Let me see if I can try to explain this a little better.

Everything adds up. I’ve seen both sides of it happen for myself and my clients. That’s not to say we don’t all have our times where we’re not at our best game, but they still show up to put in the work. As I said, and I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, it all adds up.

So what I’m getting at here is that you choose the energy that runs you. You can smile more or you can frown more. You can let excuses and reactiveness run you or you can take action and responsibility. You choose what you want in life. Anyone that tells you that you don’t is definitely not living in the 1%.

P.S. Whatever you choose, choose positivity. There’s a lot of negativity out in the world and you’ll find that the 1% of negativity often adds up even faster than positivity. Diseases like to spread and they find devious ways to do so. Keep Good Company…Talk soon!
