Oh, and a quick note. These principles do not just apply to your workouts but to all areas of your life. Live the best you peeps :-) As for the pigs, they look like they have a very happy and abundant life, no?
Talking about and intending to do things is a great first step but action steps are what will get you results. We here talk, talk, talk all day long. Talk without action makes your goals into nothing more than a wish list. Get busy!
Don't get distracted by what other people are doing, you are only in competition with yourself! Commit to being the best YOU you can be and leave the rest behind. each one of us comes with a different genetic background and life experience. Focus on outdoing yourself, not everyone around you.
Find the humor in everything. Enough said, it will lighten your load, make you happier and work your abs. Only the most heinous situations do not have a humorous side (and even most of those do, just keeping it real!)
Strive to be your best every single day but respect that your best is relative. Your "best" will be considerably different on a day you are sick, tired and worn out compared to a day you are fresh, energized and in the zone. Don't judge or freak out, just push yourself to your personal best on any given day.
ALWAYS do a little more. Simple. Do your best and do a little more. Maxed out at 8 reps? Do one more assisted. Plan your outfit for the next day. Donate to your favorite charity and then donate $5 more. (Um, OK, shameless plug if you happen to favor animal charities, one of my faves is http://www.kittenrescue.org/ )
Pay attention to your words, they have more power than you may give them credit for! Constantly talking about negative things or what you DON'T want will only invite more of that into your life. Choose your words with care. Also, avoid things like "hopefully", "maybe", "if I'm lucky". Make your own luck! Leaving things up to chance means leaving the door open for not getting what you want. We are can do people, people!
Become what you want to attract. Do you want happiness, success, kindness, fun and love in your life? Be a happy, generous focused, kind, fun and loving person. Like tends to attract like ;)
Always give the benefit of the doubt. We have no clue what another person or organization may be going through at first glance. Make sure to get all the facts before you form a judgement. Pre-judging can cause some pretty silly and useless misconceptions.
Never take ANYTHING for granted. Appreciate every single thing you love in your life right down to your favorite breakfast cereal. Each on is a gift to be cherished.
Someday is today friends!! I realize that there are only 24 hours in a day but don't put things off because you think you have an infinite amount of time or that things will be better one day down the road. YOU have the power to make your life better every single moment with every single decision you make. Life is meant to be LIVED, not wished for ;)
Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011!!!!
