Invite Success Into Your Life By Learning To Listen

If you’ve had even the barest semblance of a regular exercise regime this year than you’ll know working out effectively is not always as easily done as what you might like. There are days when you might hit the gym feeling as fired up as possible only to deflate at the mere sight of a dumbell. When you struggle to summon up even a hint of energy and strength as you push yourself toward something like the shadow of a ‘real’ session. And then there’s the times when you might be feeling pulled apart by everything else in your life, when you’re exhausted and haven’t eaten enough, and feel pretty darn awful and yet you somehow pull off one of the most memorable and pumped sessions ever. There’s really often no way to predict what’s going to happen once you don the runners, is there?

But the most annoying occasions of all are those when you simply meander through some sort of workout middle ground. You’re not quite just going through the motions, but you know you’re not at your best either. These sessions are the ones that come back to bite, aren’t they? They leave you with a little niggle of guilt or frustration, the knowledge that – for whatever reason – you simply couldn’t or wouldn’t motivate yourself to get the most out of it.

I had such a session a couple of days ago in my Bikram yoga class. It wasn’t that I was exhausted, or distracted, or anything really. I just felt – blah. And I couldn’t seem to snap out of it. By 20 minutes in I’d pretty much resigned myself to the fact that (super sweat aside) I was wasting my time.

And then I had an epiphany of sorts.

As I robot-ed my way through standing head to knee pose something clicked inside me and I began to really listen to what the teacher was saying. Not that I usually ignore the instruction of course, but it’s easy to take just the parts that are easy to do, or that you feel like doing, or to let the words just wash over you as you give it a ‘good enough’ go. But this time I truly began to focus. To follow every little step, from the positioning of my eye gaze, to the angle of my torso, to the way my weight was distributed through my feet. And as the class continued I forgot all about the notion of wasting time and went into almost a daze as I gave 100% of my attention to what was being taught. It ended up being one of the best classes I’ve ever done, not just physically, but mentally.

And it made me think. What if we were to employ the same approach to every aspect of life? Or even just to every workout session. When it comes to exercise, to eating well, to positive thinking, to anything that you do or try to do regularly, you’ve probably had enough detailed instruction or done enough reading over the years that you could teach someone else how to do those things. Which means that whether or not you physically have a teacher or a coach telling you what to do, it takes nothing more than a little deliberate focus to hear that voice inside your head telling you what to do, guiding you through each step.

So if you’re serious about changing your body and strengthening your mind then the question is this – are you willing to consciously put aside your day, your to-do list, your constantly jumping thoughts to simply focus on the process of doing something? To truly tune in to your body and to engage in every little detail of your chosen activity? It will probably take some practice but from what I’ve experienced this past week I’d go so far as to say it could completely revolutionize your training. Maybe even your life. Speaking of which –

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’ve created a place. A revolution of sorts. A HUB OF BADASSERY.

A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done.

A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly purpose-driven ‘do what it takes’ women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.

It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, and right now I have re-opened the doors, just for a few days. You can come join us either month by month, or VIP your fine self and receive access (yes really!) to every course I’ve ever created. You’ll also receive thousands of dollars worth of bonuses, plus all my NEW live content either way. And to top it off? You’ll get to come meet all the other driven badasses who are out there changing the world. Falling in to who they always WERE,

and who they know they must be.

Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to falling into YOU, and being damn proud of it. Say yes to no fucks given that it is ‘supposed’ to be such and such way. YOU KNOW HOW IT’S MEANT TO FEEL FOR YOU.

And you know that that is the way.

Come see what I made you,
