New year’s eve is an easy day to blame.
“I hate new year’s eve” (i personally love it), “New year’s day is the ‘best day’” (every time I have been out new years day everyone is home by 6pm feeling sorry for themselves and everywhere is empty).
Most people put off living today, doing their best today, being present TODAY instead of a day in the future when everything “will be better”.
My own experience is new year’s eve is a good to great day full of possibility, just like EVERY day. I dream big tonight and imagine the great things to come next year. What’s wrong with wanting great things to happen? It’s better to have a go and fail, than wait on the sidelines in life afraid to make any mistakes.
New year’s day is another great day, when I’m super psyched up to have a great year. It’s the day before we start back the gym, when endless opportunity becomes reality.
One new year’s eve during the first year I started being a trainer, I experienced enormous negativity from a so called ‘friend’, make that MANY friends. I was used to being ridiculed by certain people back then, laughing behind my back at my career choices and my chances but I soon got used to it.
Anyway during my run today with the dogs, I saw this man’s parents, who also shared the hilarity at the thought of me having a ‘career’.
They were passing the bin where you put dog poo, so I put the poo into the bin and promptly got down and hit another 20 press ups. Reason one was to complete 200 press ups for the run, reason two was for YOU LOT.
I had to do it to practice what I preach. To show people that we DON’T CARE what people think in our pursuit of what really matters in life, after all our success depends on our continuous hard work and extreme effort.
You may scoff at new year’s eve, but it was the birth place of my dreams and ambitions, my ignition point to spark off something better that would help notably my life greatly, but many others too I have tried to help, it gave me the confidence to have a huge go at being my best.
Dream big today, tonight and put into action tomorrow your most meaningful aspirations and plans you have put off for WAY too long.
See you wednesday,
