Everyday, I wake up between 4:30 and 5am to go workout at a gym nearby. You would think that people arrive grumpy or just not in the mood to talk to anyone. But nothing could be further from the truth! Everyone is working hard, having fun and has an upbeat atmosphere. It is one of my favorite parts of the day!
I share this story because while I was driving home this morning, I realized that many people in that class have reached the health goals they set out to achieve. While the easy answer would be the trainer (they are great) or the workout (which are challenging), my answer would be excellence.
It’s easy to achieve your goals when you surround yourself with excellence! Could success be this simple? It just might be! So how do you surround yourself with excellence?
Support System – Who are the people in your life who believe in you? Who are the people you admire and hope to achieve similar success?
Health – Are you eating properly to allow yourself to be your best? What activities are you involved in each week that releases stress and fears?
Vision – Do you have a vision that inspires you each and everyday? Do you keep track of the actions you complete towards your vision?
Values – Do you lead your life in a manner that you believe is right? Are you giving back more than you are receiving.
“Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life.”
– Karl Marx
