Progress

I’ve probably mentioned before that I’ve fallen off the wagon, fitness wise.

With my busy schedule and multiple events in a day, it was getting rather difficult to work out and lose weight. Add that with a lazy mindset and an “oh, well” mentality, I found myself in a place I didn’t want to be in.

I felt heavier; my mood lazy and irritable. It definitely was a place I didn’t want to be in.

I made a decision that day to change. I’ve looked at my journey in my life before and I know that I have made it before. It’s just that I become too complacent and I stop working hard as much as I should. I stagnate, and things start to go on a decline.

I realized this in my fitness journey that there’s really no such thing as working out for a month or so and expecting to keep that body for the rest of your life.

For you to even maintain it, it requires work. For you to become better, stronger and fitter, you have to do even more.

The key is in the every day discipline and the mindset. Lately, I have incorporated fitness into my lifestyle so it’s become quite enjoyable. It doesn’t feel like a chore anymore, nor does it feel like I’m doing it just for the sake of vanity.

As I was looking at myself in the mirror today, I felt happy with the progress I am making.

Little as it may be, progress is progress. Even the biggest mountains have started off with small rocks.

But remember dear friend to never be complacent and just keep on going. Life is constantly moving, anyway. You should too.

But the more I think about it…
I think….

This kind of mindset: the daily discipline, mindset and the progress.

All of these things: they apply to my career too.  Am I making enough progress for me to be proud of in my business?

Conquering Mountains

May 05, 2016.

An interesting day.
I did my first hike of the season at Quarry Rock, North Vancouver.

All throughout the trek to the top, my heart was racing and my mind going in circles,but I was determined to get to the top.

Once I got there, every sweat, hardship and complain I made along the way didn’t matter anymore.

I was at the top of the world.

As I sat there under the sun, I looked at everything in a different light.

I found myself thinking…..

I can do it too.
I can conquer other parts of my life and be at the top.

I can be successful too.

I can make it. You can make it.
We can make it.
