6 Things You Simply Must Do To Be In Great Shape

I’ve been a little misleading with the title of this post. It’s really about doing 6 things to achieve your most important goal(s). But we’ll use being in great shape as an example. Now I can’t remember where I stole this idea from, but I recently read a post whereby the author gave a great suggestion. I made a note to myself to link back to it, and then lost the link – apologies, mystery blogger.

The suggestion was that you write down 6 things you simply must do every day that lead you to your goal/s. You should carry this success list with you and look at it throughout the day until it’s completed.

I’ve been doing my own version of this for some time, which is to write down the things I must do on my ICal each day. And not just the ‘tasks’ but the analysis and review of my progression. For example, at the end of each day I have a note to record what I did that day to make money, and what I did to bring in new business. This idea came from Freelance Switch, one of my favorite motivational and educational tools.

I think where my approach is less effective than the ‘6 things’ approach, is that I don’t cap myself on how many points I must tick off the list. For example, here’s a list of the 24 items I had on my ‘must-do’ list today

Oh. My. God.

Until I wrote this list (and then made the eye-opening decision of numbering instead of bullet pointing it), I seriously did not realize how much I’ve been expecting of myself. Sure, my calendar always looks full. But 24 items!! No wonder I have trouble falling asleep and often berate myself for getting nothing done.

I guess that’s where having a list of 6 could be more effective for a number of reasons –

  • There’s a higher likelihood I’d get them all done
  • This would mean I’d feel really good about myself (love crossing things off lists, in fact have even been known to write things on list after they’re done so that I could then enjoy the satisfaction of crossing them off!)
  • I’d be forced to prioritise
  • This could make me more productive  – by focusing on the most important goals, I’d constantly move forward with my business and my life, and I’m sure the little things would eventually take care of themselves.

Well that’s my theory, anyway ..

Let’s put it to the test. Out of my list of 24 –

6 Things I Simply Must Do Today

  1. Write, edit and post an article for BodyIncredible.com
  2. Workout
  3. Meet with my apprentices for our weekly team meet
  4. Follow up on Isagenix Associates
  5. Client contracts for apprentices to be reviewed
  6. Work on my upcoming article series for staying in shape over Christmas

Why These Things Matter The Most

Because they fit in with my top three goals:

  • Stay in great shape and feel good about myself
  • Build a strong online presence as a blogger and increase readership each week
  • Increase my passive income(s) so that I can spend more time on goal 2

Although all the other points on my list are important, they’re not as directly relevant to my long-term success. The scary thing is, I know from previous experience that without writing my short-list, I’d have started with the items that were easiest to complete. I definitely would have done my workout (deeply ingrained habit), and I would have had the apprentice meeting, as it was an appointment, but the other 4 points would probably have been pushed into the next day.

Can you imagine what you’d achieve in a week, a month, a year, by creating a goal-orientated list of 6 each day, and then sticking to it? I think there’s some powerful potential there. I plan to put this habit into more regular practice with my writing. You might have a personal or business goal that you’d like to achieve – why not put your own list of 6 together right now. Let’s use being in great shape as an example. When you create your list the points can be as simple as ‘workout’ or ‘prepare own lunch’, or they could be more detailed and specific to your own strengths and weaknesses.

Here are some ideas for things you simply must do to stay in great shape:

  • Workout for at least 30 minutes (and SWEAT!)
  • Drink more water
  • Prepare own food
  • Limit starchy/sugary carbohydrates
  • Get more sleep
  • Try a new style of exercise
  • Insist on leaving work on time
  • One less coffee
  • Replace your afternoon treat for an afternoon health snack
  • Write a weekly exercise and/or eating plan
  • Book an appointment with an exercise and/or nutrition specialist
  • Read/watch something inspiring
  • Go for a walk before breakfast/after dinner

That should get you started!

Life is Now. If you don’t press play today, when will you?

*I completed 4 of my list of 6 items yesterday – I blame this on the fact that I did not start writing this article first thing, but instead focussed on checking off the little points! well, I’ve learnt my lesson – from here on out I’ll be 6-listing at the begin of each day, and starting with these points rather than leaving them till the last minutes! Please check in with me – I need accountability as much as the next person!

Expansion.

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now

Press play for regular, (super fuck yes!!) upfront or payment plan
