It's a well known fact that the lovely "S.O" and yours truly dont agree on a lot of, if any, things at all ... but she recently said something "manifestation" wise (most of which I dont agree with her on at all) which I can whole heartedly agree with.
While trying to get the daughter to do better "self care" i.e. brush hair, teeth etc more carefully and the sort of thing you gotta keep telling kids, she made this comment.
"God only gave us one body - now if you dont take care of it, he'll stop sending you other things as well. He'll say "I gave her a body, but she couldn't take care of that either, so why new things!"
Now, this is an interesting way of looking at it.
I thought about it, offhand comment, replace God with Universe - it makes perfect sense, always has all my life along with another truism "toss the old in your life to make place for the new - and toss the old FIRST while having FAITH the new will come".
All my life, my best results have come when doing the following -
When I'm in SHAPE - by that I do NOT mean bulging muscles - I mean a lean, mean look and full of energy all day.
If you look at it from a manifestation standpoint, if you're "desiring more" - but not doing anything or letting what you have to go to utter waste (most people) - then why would you "be ready" to "recieve more"? Think about it, it makes perfect sense in that regard.
When I'm actively blocking the vast majority of people out of my life (including some on this email list etc) because they have energy I do NOT want in my life. That alone is a mind bender for most - how could I do that business wise?
But trust me, blocking complainers, whiners, time wasters and such is something every successful business owner does whether he/she is aware of it or not. Or, you wouldn't be a success!
I'm even more active about it the more I do business, and my results SHOW.
The minute you completely cut off something you do not want in your life from you, is the minute you free up space for the something that you DO want to come to you - often miraculously.
Getting back to fitness - it's true. Health is indeed the greatest wealth, yet, most folks ignore this truism.
And no, self care does not mean slathering on tons of lotion, deodorant, bathing with fancy soaps etc - or long sessions at spas, or saunas (though saunas are great when done right) or anything of that nature.
Martin Farmer Burns said (wrote) as much in the Lessons of Wrestling and Physical Culture handbook in the 1900's where he states that the office worker, all spic, span, smelling good (insert LGBTQ manicure for today, lol) might and probably is actually way unhealthier than the laborer sweating it out all day in the hot sun.
And he's right. It makes perfect sense. Like beauty is not "skin deep" - coming from the inside - so is true health my friend.
It means taking care of your health from the inside out.
And the numero uno thing to do DAILY in this regard is regular intense exercise - workouts - such as in the 0 Excuses Fitness System, which is truly meant for everyone - from couch potato to advanced trainees, there is something for everyone here - and you'll get in record shape fast if you just do what is outlined in the course, and stick at it (i.e. persistence).
Along with that, other things I highly recommend - regular fasting - lots of FRUITS in your diet - lots of LEAN meats - lots of COLD water therapy (especially the last) - and lots of deep rthymic breathing as a matter of practice, and a lot more, but it all comes to nought if you dont follow the basics, which boil down to, no matter how you cut it - pushups, pull-ups, squats, and bridging - done in proper FORM all of them.
And that, my friend, is what 0 Excuses Fitness is built on - the very bedrock of REAL fitness out there (unlike the fancy "circuits" or other nonsense that is doing the rounds these days, there is no need to prepare long charts, count calories, measure bodyweight, BMI etc - just drop down and DO - and the results will nigh show and astound you).
Basic is brutal, and best.
And thats that, pal.
