Holy moly we’ve become a society of lazy turds!
When did being lazy even become such a virtue?
When did being undisciplined become a sign of freedom?
I call BULLSHIT.
I’m yet to meet a truly successful person – I’m talking successful in health, in relationships, in business – who is not disciplined to the extreme.
Disciplined in thought, emotions and action.
I implore you to wake up to the fact that the current social construct is set up to make your brain lazy. To make life ‘easy’ for you.
You’re brought up in a schooling system which defies free thinking.
You’re socialised in a family structure of unquestioned loyalty and adherence to what the elders tell you to do. Now in the olden days I could see the wisdom in this, when the elders were well integrated humans who spent time connecting with Nature and Creator, understanding the intricate relationships between life forms and passing this wisdom on.
With all respect to the current elders, most of you fried your brains with acid, alcohol and 20 Camels a day, working like mindless drones until you either fell down dead at your little cubicle desks or waiting for retirement and a slow death of boredom.
Most current elders are filled with suppressed anger, resentment, jealousy and I get it – you have reason to feel all of this.
The gift you brought us is how fucked up the system is so that we can make different choices for ourselves.
I am deeply grateful and appreciative of this!
Yet my concern is for my generation and the ones following who are not waking up fast enough.
Those letting the pendulum swing the other way – from overworked to sitting like mindless sloths!
Sunshine, it’s time for you to get your ass off the couch, for you to get outside and breath in some fresh air, to activate those beautiful little brain cells, to think, to create and to thrive!
Nothing in your life is ever going to turn up roses until you become disciplined!
Until you take control of your thoughts, your words, your emotions and your actions.
Parents need to start installing discipline in their households once more – not from a space of “Because I said so” but from a space of “Because I do so”!
It is in our routines that we create our reality.
Mastered routines come from repetition.
There is nothing quite like “boredom” that will strengthen your resolve, your muscle memory, your power. Ask me – running up and down a swimming pool lane for 3 hours will kill you if you’re not strong enough to take hold of your mind and keeping it on track. Having the discipline to finish that last lap so that you don’t give up at 2 hours 57 minutes.
Which is the first hurdle I see most people fail at.
So overstimulated by electronics and gadgets and shiny objects, they demand to have new and bright all the time.
But what is it really costing you my friend?
What is your lack of discipline in your eating costing you long term when you have all that shit sitting in your arteries slowing down the blood flow, the life flow?
What is your lack of discipline in your relationships costing you when you simply couldn’t be bothered to romance your partner anymore?
What is your lack of discipline in your exercise costing you when your hips tighten up so that you ultimately can’t walk pain-free anymore?
What is your lack of discipline in your chosen career costing you when you never reach a place of mastery and always dabble as a Jill of all Trades?
What is your lack of discipline in your spirituality costing you when you stop tapping into your soul and the wisdom that resides within you?
The moment you sit down and get real about the price you’re going to pay in years to come you can start making better choices.
You will start seeing the wisdom in slowing down to speed up.
You will start seeing the benefit in being supported by structures and routines that frees up your creativity.
You will start seeing the joy in living at peak performance Baby.
Sadly, most will never take the time.
They might read all the way to the end of this blog and then carry on to the next one.
Seeking something more fun and stimulating.
But they are not my concern – only YOU are.
What will you do with this awareness today?
Will you sit down and work out the cost?
Will you take the time to see where in your life you have become lazy and the ripple effect it’s having?
More importantly, will you commit to a new lifestyle where discipline forms the cornerstone of your divine success?
Only death is inevitable Darling.
Thriving is truly a choice which you have to be disciplined in making every single day.
With love always,
PS: I believe in four pillars for an indestructible mind-set: Drive, Dedication, Discipline and Determination.
Not all agree with my methodology and I respect that.
For my clients, those who resonate with my values, these pillars transform lives.
It’s how they go from struggling, exhausted and hardly making ends meet to having their toes painted gold whilst feeling fully supported in their thriving businesses before picking up their kids for play-time.
It’s how they effortlessly slim down having fun in the process and feeling more energised to build their empires.
It’s how they have a full day making a difference in the world and then showing up as a goddess in bed.
It’s tough as nails in the beginning Darling – all change is.
But if mediocrity is simply no longer acceptable to you, if you’re ready to push through the discomfort to relish the reward, let’s connect today.
