6 Rules of Success: The One Month Checkup!

We’re now a full month into 2012 so it’s time for a checkup on how your goals are going.  Remember how we talked about how we should focus on  fulfillment as a New Years resolution instead of just plain health goals?

We have been excited to see so many new faces at Blitz Conditioning; from people who are accessing our personal training, to group classes, to massage therapy and acupuncture.  You’re taking the first steps to making health a lifestyle and not just a resolution! I found a speech from Arnold Schwarzenegger on his six rules of success and I thought I share it with you all.

Here are the Rules are:

  1. Trust yourself: you define who you want to be and what makes you happy.  Don’t let circumstances around you or successes and failures overwhelm who you are.
  2. Break the Rules: what’s the point of being alive if all you are going to do is live within the confines of a box?  We make changes by busting out of definitions!
  3. Don’t be afraid to fail: stop over-thinking and just start!
  4. Don’t listen to naysayers:  have you shared your goals with others and they just laugh or tell you it’s not possible?  keep pressing forward towards fulfilment, it’s a life-goal and not a temporal event.
  5. Work your butt off!  As Arnold says: you have 24 hours in a day, if you sleep 6 hours then you have 18 to work with.
  6. Give back: giving back to a community leads to satisfaction and leads to fulfilment.  Spread your joy, knowledge and time to others!
