As I sit back and reflect on 2022, it’s been such a powerful year. So many changes, tons of growth, and the realization of unlimited potential.
I heard a quote once that said, you are the sum of the 5 people you hang out with (associate) most. Mentorship, and joining a powerful group of like minded/growth individuals (Two Brain Business) has completely changed my mindset for the better.
Last year at this time I was considering walking away from the gym, moving to a new state and starting over. As I sit back and reflect on 2022 so much positive has happened and my mindset has completely shifted. I have fallen in love with helping my staff grow through mentorship and continuing to watch clients succeed.
I have become a bookworm 🙂 and reading is now part of my daily routine. I continue to meditate and do breath work daily. I have found a new hobby – Jiu Jitsu – which checks a lot of boxes for me. I have focused on communication and living my life by certain core values. Sometimes it means going through hardships in order to find your way back to the light. Life is full of peaks and valleys, and if you can accept that, and surround yourself with a great support system, you too can succeed.
I made a social media post on February 11th of this year and talked about how I asked myself a very powerful question that I think about everyday when I wake up.
“If I only had 1 year left to live, what would I do? Where would I be? Who would I spend my time with?” Here is the list of promises I made to myself.
1 – Stop wallowing and start working hard on my business to help it grow and provide opportunities for myself and my staff.
2 – Travel 3+ days every month if I want to.
3 – Disconnect more and spend less time on social media.
4 – Spend more QUALITY time with my loved ones.
5 – Commit to getting in better shape at 38 than at 28.
6 – Commit to building a passive income stream to help support my lifestyle.
7 – Be a leader. Work on better communication. Be happier and more kind.
8 – Focus on being part of a community of strong males that support each other.
I am by no means perfect with this list, but I’m constantly making progress in the right direction. As the year winds down I think about creating momentum. I like to spend the last week of the year unwinding, decompressing and enjoying family time. On top of this I like to look back on my goals from 2022. What did I accomplish? What did I do well? What did I fail to accomplish and why? Once I have that figured out I set time aside to create powerful goals for the year to come. Goal setting is one of the MOST power tools we have at our disposal and far too often people don’t utilize it. I’ll leave you with this.
What would your life look like if you committed 100% to your health, nutrition, relationships and work in 2023? How much better would life be? How would your world change? Got your answer? Good! Now go set your goals and crush it!
