In the past, your primitive mind took your body for granted, allowing it just enough drugged sleep, processed sustenance and lethargic “workouts” to serve as the vessel for your addiction.
Make this the year you allow yourself to sleep for 10 hours on a Friday night, wake up to savor your breakfast, and then HIT THE GYM WITH 100% intensity and calmly reflect on your back porch about how damn good you feel on this fine Saturday afternoon.
In the past, you allowed chemical excess to pay surprise visits and burglarize your dignity and self-worth, confusing you just as much as any witness to your incomprehensible behavior.
Make this the year you go to a party only if you genuinely enjoy the people there, feeling secure in your own skin and having totally TRANSCENDED any urge to awaken your primitive mind’s chemical obsession.
In the past, you ignored your true calling in life or attempted it half-heartedly, blaming your failure on a malevolent universe or the cunning manipulation of others.
Make this the year you accept 100% responsibility for fulfilling that burning desire, which resides in you like a spark waiting to be kindled, for that one thing that you know for a fact you do with more energy, more passion, and more authenticity than anyone else.
In the past, your primitive mind interpreted all temporary defeats and bumps in the road as obvious justifications for chemical escape.
Make this the year you live a life based on principle, which is rarely the path of least resistance – but which eventually becomes the path of least resistance, over TIME, for those who make a habit of upholding their principles.
In the past, people cast doubts on your abilities or, if they knew about your demons, they said “You have such potential” – while doubting that you’ll ever amount to anything.
Make this the year you banish the word “potential” from your vocabulary, banish negative people and naysayers from your phone and your social life, and accomplish just one thing every day that feeds your mission in life.
Where might you be after 365 conscious, cumulative actions toward your goals?
Where might you be after 365 days of maximum energy levels and a proper unison of mind and body?
Stop fantasizing, and make it happen.
