Many of you know I have been on a strict diet for the last year. The last three or four months I have been hitting the gym in the mornings before going to work. I am starting to finally get back in shape. It took losing over 170 lbs.
Last weekend I took a little time off for the first time in several months. Our chess club had a campout at Bellows Beach on the Windward Side of Oahu. My six year old son Jacob and I camped out for 2 nights. It was a great father/ son bonding.
We did a lot of activities that even a few months ago I would not have been in physical shape to do. Six games of basketball; touch football and swimming in the surf throughout the weekend. All things I wouldn't or couldn't have done until recently. I have not played a single game of basketball in years. I would have had a heart attack trying. It was so exciting for me to find I could keep up with the young guys again.
Getting in shape is something that not only affects me physically it also affects me mentally and in business.
- I have much more energy for my work than ever.
- I sleep better so I am rested.
- Potential clients respond in a more positive way to me. I am not as intimidating to children.
- I put out as more positive energy.
- I do not get tired climbing stairs to show third floor condos.
My message for the day: If you want to send your life and business in a more positive direction. Put down the remote for the TV and head for the gym. The first two weeks are hard, but after that it gets easy. Also get rid of the sugar and eat good food. You will be amazed how much better you will feel.
